How to Repair Your Hair From Summer Damage

Between heat styling, product buildup, tight ponytails, and sweat, our hair goes through plenty of wear and tear as part of our day-to-day routines. Add the sun and salt water of summer, and you’ve got a recipe for dry, damaged locks and split ends by the end of the season. While we can relate to the temptation just to chop it all off, there are also other ways to revive damaged hair for those who prefer not to give up their length. Read on for some of our best tips.

Deep Condition, Deep Condition, Deep Condition

Damaged hair needs moisture and nourishment, so opt for products formulated to strengthen hair bonds and hydrate from within. Deep conditioning treatments are an especially great way to revive thirsty locks. Once a week, swap your regular conditioner for a deep conditioning treatment to target breakage and split ends, then style with a few drops of hair oil for frizz protection and shine. 

Get a Trim

If you’re not willing to part with your length, even a minor trim can make a significant difference in keeping hair healthy and preventing further damage. Split ends will eventually travel up the hair shaft, weakening strands and contributing to further splitting. Start with trimming off half an inch or so every three months, and your hair will be healthy again in no time. 

Prevent Further Damage

Heat styling will only make existing breakage worse, so it’s essential to give your hair a break by following a routine designed to minimize damage. Limit your usage of straighteners and curling irons to no more than once a week, and be sure to use the lowest heat setting and apply a heat protectant before use. To add body and shape without stressing your locks, you can also try using heatless curling tools.
