Our hair goes through it all during the summer season! Before you even think about styling your hair this summer, you need to start treating your beautiful locks to hair masks and treatments to keep it in perfect condition.
The sun gives off harmful rays which can dry the hair, particularly hair that is chemically treated. The heat can intensify the damage which is done to the hair normally through using heat styling appliances. Chlorine also from swimming pools and salt in the sea water can take its toll.
So here are some of our top tips to keep your hair in beautiful condition this summer:
- Use your Rock & Ruddle Natural Bristle hairbrush to ensure that you spread the sebum (oils made by your scalp) down each strand of hair. This will help to protect your hair from the environment keeping it supple and silky all summer long.
- Use A Hair Mask
Use a nourishing hair mask and apply it once a week at home. Then brush it through with a wide tooth comb like our Rock & Ruddle ones!

- Wear A Hat
Wearing a hat keeps your hair protected from damage caused by direct sunlight! Some of our favourite places to pick up our chic summer hats are Zara, H&M & ASOS.
- Use a Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner
Switch your usual shampoo & conditioner with super moisturising formulas! It will help lock in moisture and keep your hair sleek and frizz free!

- Leave the Heat Alone!
Try and use natural styling techniques without the need for curling tongs or hair straighteners. Why not try a beach wave with a texture spray?

- Remember to eat healthy foods that can help nourish your hair, including those containing essential fatty acids, protein and vitamins A, C and E, as well as minerals such as Iron, Calcium and Zinc.
- Finally, remember to keep drinking enough water (6/8 glasses each day) to keep hydrated throughout the day which will help keep you in the best possible glowing summer health!
