As Summer approaches, the weather is slowly starting to heat up. We can’t wait to spend our days at the beach, soaking up the sun! But with sun comes heat and humidity, which can lead to major frizz. But don’t frizz-out, these tips will help you keep those flyaways under control.
Develop a Healthy Hair Care Regime
Start by identifying your hair type. If you have naturally straight hair, you’ll need to wash it several times a week. However, if you have a naturally curly to kinky texture, you won’t need to wash your hair more than once a week. Once you are finished washing your hair, be sure to rinse it with cool water as that will help the follicles lock in the moisture they’ve retained. No matter your hair type, always be sure to deep condition your hair at least once a month. Depending on how often our extensions are worn and if they are color treated, we recommend deep conditioning our extensions as well with our deep conditioner.
Be Mindful of the Products You Use
Chemically enhanced products that appear to make your hair behave but only mask the problem short term can have damaging long-term effect that lead to more frizzing. Be sure to use natural, sulfate and alcohol-free products like our hair care essentials bundle.
Moisturize Your Hair from the Inside Out
Moisture is one of the best ways to fight frizz. But it’s not enough to add moisture to your hair using products. Stay hydrated by drinking water will ensure that your hair retains moisture. Lock in that moisture by using leave-in conditioner. Your hair also needs nutrients to stay healthy, making it less likely to frizz up. Be sure to eat right and apply oils (like our argan oil) that provide the nutrients your hair may lose throughout the day.
Be Careful with Color
As we all know, dying your hair can take a major toll on even the healthiest of hair. So it’s important to stay away from dyes that have harsh chemicals like ammonia. To avoid damage, we achieve our color by dying naturally gray hair and color it as desired. This eliminates the need to strip away the color (as well as much of its nutrients) on top of dying the hair. The more processed the hair is the more damaged and frizzy it becomes. Instead of exposing your hair to the damaging color process, change up your Summer style with our colored hair weaves!
Protect and Style
Whenever heat styling your hair, always make sure to use a heat protectant to minimize heat damage. Heat can dry out and irritate the cuticle and shaft, causing it to frizz up and become brittle. Once your hair is heat styled, renew the moisture and nutrients by applying out silk nectar serum.
Take proper care of your hair and it will remain silky smooth all summer long!
