Summer Hair Care

Guest Author - Lynne Chapman

Once again we are beginning the season of summer vacations and outdoor fun. So you have plans for weekends at the beach? The fresh air and sunshine may be fun and relaxing but, unfortunately, your hair will often show the detrimental effects of a summer of neglect. The wind and the waves, along with the ultra violet rays of the sun, have the capability to bleach and dry out each strand of hair. Some prior planning and preparation will help you avoid looking wild and wooly while on the beach and then coming to the end of summer to find that your formerly silky tresses have turned to the color and texture of sun bleached straw.

Control
Fortunately, there are very stylish hair cut trends that can take some blowing in the wind and retain the shape and feeling of the style. These cuts are a precise blend of mismatched layers that can blow in the breeze and retain the carefree shape. It is important to remember that these styles are meant to never look the same way twice, which is why they are perfect for an active day.
Use hair gel or mousse that is strong enough to maintain the body and to allow your hair to bounce back by simply running your fingers through it. Using hair wax keeps the style shiny, chunky looking and offers even more hold.

Sun Protection
Preventing damage may be as easy as choosing products that contain
UV protection.

Look for styling aids that contain sun filters and moisturizers to combat the effects of the elements. For more protection, look for leave-in products that contain protective ingredients.
(LC Legacy Styling System contains sun protection and conditioners.)

Swim Protection
Before taking the plunge, try applying a protective swim barrier.
These are crèmes or gels that form a waterproof barrier to protect your hair from chemical damage when applied before swimming.


Cover-ups
For the ultimate in protection, think seriously about your options in hats.
A hat will block the sun as well as conceal uncontrollable hair. These cover-ups blend with and accessorize every personality and, depending on the style, create a mysterious, whimsical or casual look. Add a pair of sunglasses and the look becomes a fashion statement. You will find unlimited style varieties, from baseball caps to wide-brimmed straw hats. Another option is a head wrap, of a complimentary color or pattern, that can be made from a scarf or piece of fabric.
So to avoid the embarrassment of wind-whipped hair and having to repair months
of damage this fall, don't forget to stop and put some thought into the care and control of your hair.
