We all love summer – think hot weather, long nights and days spent by the beach – but sometimes all that sun and heat can wreak havoc on your hair. This time of year, your hair might be feeling a little dry, brittle and dehydrated, not to mention the frizz that comes along with the humidity. There are a few ways to help your hair recover from the summer months, however, and some tips and tricks that will bring some life back to your locks!
Invest in a Microfiber Shower Cap
Say goodbye to untameable, frizzy hair once and for all by using a microfibre shower cap from Dilly’s Collections. Our shower caps are extremely luxurious, high quality and stylish but, best of all, they are specially designed to help tame frizzy hair. The microfibre inner lining works to deliver moisture to your locks whilst also keeping it protected in the shower. Our caps can also be worn at night to preserve your hair treatments and stop the dreaded morning ‘bed hair’. A microfibre shower cap is a must for this summer!
Try to wash your hair less frequently
Like this Buzzfeed article says, ‘there's a special place in hell for the person who invented frizz’. You might think that shampooing and conditioning your hair often will keep it soft and smooth but it’s actually the opposite that is true. Washing your hair too frequently can actually strip it of the natural oils and cause it to become more dry and brittle. This leads to unmanageable, frizzy hair – no thanks! Try using a dry shampoo between washes to keep your hair from looking too oily.
It’s time to embrace heatless styles
The summer sun is already causing enough stress on our hair so there’s no need to go and apply even more heat to it. We’re not saying you should throw away your straightener but opting to try more heatless hairstyles is a great way to stop your hair from drying out and causing more damage than necessary. The Internet is a great source of inspiration for cute up dos so maybe it’s time to try something new this summer!
Protect your hair from the pool
This is one tip that often gets overlooked but it’s so important to protect your locks from the harshness of chlorine. How many times have you come out of the pool, or even the beach, and felt like your hair is dryer than the desert? Next time you’re planning to take a dip, try coating your hair with a high quality hair mask or leave in conditioner. This will provide you with extra protection and help to prevent the chlorine from severely drying out your hair!
Treat your hair overnight
Another great way to give your hair a little TLC during summer is to apply a rich overnight treatment. By applying a moisturising hair mask the night before, you’ll wake up in the morning to soft and silky hair that feels very healthy and hydrating. Our tip – wrap your hair up into one of our Microfibre Shower Caps to really lock in the moisture and prevent hair damage from tossing and turning through the night.
Winter has well and truly set in these past few weeks. There’s a chill in the air and the mornings are frosty. Winter is a great time to grow out your hair and get a colour change. But the cold weather can also cause hair damage and frizz. Not only does the cold dry out your skin, but it can also dry out your scalp and hair and moisture from the rain and fog can cause your hair to frizz and your styled locks to fall apart!
So here are a few easy tips to keep your hair healthy, and styled over winter.
