When it comes to summertime, basic activities like swimming, tanning, and playing sports can be a full-blown assault on your hair. Chlorinated pools, lots of extra time in the sun, and long, humid days all lead to one thing — bad hair days.

As a busy Mama, I don’t have much time to spend on my hair, so I do my best to keep my hair safe from summertime damage throughout the season, so that I can avoid having to repair damage down the road. Here are my 6 easy tips for keeping hair healthy and beautiful even on the hottest days of summer.

1. Saturate your hair before you go for a swim. Your hair is like a sponge. A dry sponge absorbs a lot, while a wet sponge doesn’t absorb much at all. When your hair is soaked with clean water or leave-in conditioner, it will absorb less saltwater or chlorine. Rinsing your hair after swimming is a good way to remove any remaining salt or chlorine as soon as possible.

2. Skip hot tools as much as possible. Give your hair a break from curling irons, flat irons, and blow dryers. Go for natural looks like beachy waves and loose braids that are pretty and allow for heat-free styling.

3. Use styling products that contain UV filters. These products will protect your hair from sun damage and keep color-dyed hair looking richer longer. These products will protect your hair and your scalp which is vulnerable to skin cancer. UV hair products are available in a range of options like sprays, cream formulas, and gels.

4. Wear a hat or a swim cap. Wide-brimmed sunhats are not only stylish, but they are also an effective way to keep the sun from damaging your hair and your face. If you swim a lot, tucking your hair into a swim cap is a good way to keep your tresses safe from the damaging effects of salt and chlorine.

6 Tips for Healthy Summer Hair

5. Switch to a moisturizing and repairing shampoo and conditioner. I recently picked up Gliss™ Hair Products at Walmart and I’ve been impressed with the incredible hair repair ability of this line. Gliss is available in 5 sub-lines, each with a specific benefit in addition to hair repair. I’m using the Schwarzkopf Gliss™ Ultimate Repair Shampoo + Schwarzkopf Gliss™ Ultimate Repair Conditioner and the products leave my hair feeling healthy and looking shiny.

6. Let’s face it, despite doing all of the above, you may still find your hair in need of some extra TLC. Using a repair for damage is a great way to get your hair back to its healthiest state. I just tried the Schwarzkopf Gliss™ Ultimate Repair Anti-Damage Mask and it’s amazing. It contains liquid keratin which infuses hair with healing protein to restore its natural health and beauty.
