Summer is on its way girls and this only means one thing… It’s time to to put a spring in our locks and spruce up our hair care routine. Want in on our key tips for how to get summer hair? Then take a look at the following guide to season-appropriate tresses.
#Tip 1: Maintain Colour
One of the key things for getting summer hair is to make sure your hair colour remains looking its best throughout the sunny season. What with harsh UV rays and thermal damage tampering your locks, our hair shades are more likely to become brassy, especially blondes. So the best way to look after coloured hair and to maintain colour vibrancy, is by using shampoos and conditioners that are designed to preserve colour. One of our favourites has to be the Tigi Catwalk Fashionista Violet Conditioner, which works a treat at taking care of blonde shades, as its sulphate-free formula and lactic acid component lightly conditions coloured tresses and locks in colour. It’s also available in a tween size, so you won’t run out mid-season.
#Tip 2: Choose Your Colour Wisely
Have you noticed that in the winter everyone seems to go darker, whilst in the summer we all like to go lighter? It’s no wonder why a turn in the season signals more highlights, as we automatically connect the sun with light, colourful things, including our hair shades. To get summer hair, we recommend asking your hair stylist to add golden tones to your tresses for a sun-kissed glow. Honey tones are also an ideal hair shade for blondes, whereas brunettes can still achieve a similar summery shade with caramel highlights.
#Tip 3: Change Your Tools
So, you might have the right hair shade and hairstyle to complete your summer hair, but did you know that your hair tools could be getting in the way of your summer locks? Another ‘how to get summer hair’ tip of ours, is to make sure that you are using the right tools. During the summertime, our hair is prone to breakage so it is essential that you use the right hair brushes, along with laying off those heated styling tools, too. We can’t rave enough about the Ibiza hairbrush, as the natural boar bristles help to create voluminous styles without causing hair to break. The Spornette Super Looper Hair Extensions Brush is also worth using to prevent your hair extensions from breaking and shedding.
#Tip 4: Use Smoothing Products
What with humidity and heat being at their highest during the summer months, our hair is more likely to become frizzy and unruly. To keep frizziness at bay, we like to use smoothing products on our tresses that are not only full of moisture, but promise to protect hair against frizz for as long as possible, too. We turn to smoothing serums like the Tigi S Factor Silky Smooth Moisture Serum, which serves to fight against humidity and leave locks lustrous and smooth. Hair oils are also our best friends when temperatures start to rise, as they protect hair against thermal damage and give locks an opulent shine. The Tigi S factor True Lasting Colour Hair Oil is one of our favourites as it not only promotes healthy, summer hair, it also prevents colour from fading, too.
#Tip 5: Infuse Plenty of Texture
Our last tip for how to get summer hair is to infuse it with plenty of texture. From beachy waves to effortless updos, textured tresses are a must for the summer season and you can achieve the look by adding a texturising hair product to your hair routine. The Tigi Catwalk Session Series Salt Spray is a firm favourite for creating the popular beach waves, while the Tigi Bed Head Candy Fixations Sugar Shock is superb for amping the volume of your tresses and reducing hair breakage and frizz.
So, they’re our tips for how to get summer hair. How will you be keeping your locks looking their best this season?
