Follow these healthy tips and treatments on the Curly Girl Method to enjoy your curls this summer.
Caring for the curls in summer is very necessary so that they have a good appearance. Therefore, something that can never be missing from your hair is good hydration.
- Don't forget to drink water!
In summer, we lose a lot of water as a result of the sun and high temperatures. Water is vital for our body and if it is scarce, the body uses it first in organs, relegating the hydration of the skin and hair, allowing it to dry out. So, always, but especially in the summer, make sure to drink plenty of water per day and remember to take a bottle to the beach, the pool or wherever.
- Use sunscreen
Take care of your hair: the sun opens the cuticle of the hair facilitating the loss of water from the hair fiber and generates dryness and loss of color. Apply a conditioning hair mask containing SPF.
- Rinse your hair well
As soon as you get out of the sea or the pool, rinse your hair to free yourself from the water full of salts and chlorine and avoid dry hair.
- Use suitable Co-Wash conditioner or gel
Another way to avoid damage is to get your hair wet and use a suitable Co-Wash conditioner before going to the sea or the pool.
Hair must also be protected from the sun and for that there are products. Always wear a hat, cap or scarf.
