Summer in the Treasure Valley is in full speed! What can be better than floating the Boise River, BBQ’s and enjoying icy cold drinks? Sounds like perfection right? Summer, however, can present a variety of challenges to our hair. In fact, summer heat can damage our locks, give us oily scalps or turn our hair green with chlorine. But fear not! At unDONE, our Boise hair salon stylists are here to the rescue and want to share the following summer hair care tips.
If you plan on spending a long day in the sun, the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE recommend either applying an SPF conditioner or covering up with a hat. Another way to protect your hair is to avoid hot styling tools as much as possible to prevent additional damage and frizz.
Wear Hair in Simple Styles
Summer calls for simple hairstyles. Not only will these styles save you time but they will protect your hair from excessive sweat and unwanted UV damage. The best part? You won’t have to worry about your style being perfect, especially if you’re poolside. The laid-back nature of braids and messy buns embrace the natural elements of summer and look fabulous!
Limit Chlorine Damage
Chlorine can not only dry out your hair, it can cause blonde or color treated hair to turn green. The key to protecting your hair before a swim is to rinse it with fresh, clean water beforehand and apply a color protecting conditioner to ensure it won’t absorb as much chlorine. After the swim, you’ll want to further rinse your hair with clean water to limit unwanted chlorine damage.
To help hydrate your hair and keep it healthy and shiny this summer, use a deep conditioning treatment. At unDONE, our Boise hair salon stylists recommend making an appointment for a deep conditioning treatment. Not only will a professional deep conditioning treatment help with dryness, it will also help with annoying summer frizz and knots.
Battling the negative effects summer can have on your hair can be tough. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE are here to help! Not only can we recommend products and treatments based on your hair type, we can also suggest hairstyles that would be easier for you to manage during the summer.
