Stylist Tips for Amazing Summer Hair

Summer sun and outdoor fun can be tough on hair. Use these tips to help keep yours looking gorgeous, throughout the hottest months.

Cover up! Use a scarf or hat to cover your head when you're in the sun. This helps provide UV protection for color-treated hair and reduces damage caused by wind.

Reduce the heat. Ditch your blow dryer and flat iron (even a couple of days a week). Summer sun exposes hair to a significant amount of heat that can cause your locks to dry out.

Wear loose, comfortable styles. A messy braid or loose bun is ideal for keeping hair under control and minimizing sun exposure.

Deep condition it. Summer is a great time to fall in love with a deep conditioner. The ends of your hair suffer in the heat. Keep them smooth and moisturized by regularly using conditioner.

Protect from chlorine damage. Frequent swimming can cause significant damage to your hair, which can act like a sponge and absorb chemicals quickly. To avoid this, rinse hair before getting into the pool or saturate it with a leave-in conditioner.

Apply humidity protection and color-safe products. Tame out-of-control, frizzy locks with pomades and other humidity protection products.

Choosing the right salon products is half the battle. Consult with a Design 1 Salon professional stylist to ensure you find the best products for your hair type.
