The festive season is in the and the weather get hotter by the day, which is why it is extremely important to care for your hair just a little bit more and understand how you can protect it from heat damage.
The reality is that every woman needs a wig for that bad hair day, but not every woman likes wearing it. Whether your hair is natural or not, its very important to make sure that it is well taken care of, especially from heat damage, to run away from hair loss.
Here are a few tips on how to protect your hair from heat damage:
- Wash your hair
Hair should be washed about once every 7 to 10 days. There are people out there who shampoo less often or rely on their monthly stylist visits. Contributing factors such as the environment, dust and products – even minimal oils and creams – all contribute to hair strain. To counter heat damage and keep your hair looking healthy and feeling strong, make sure your shampoo has what it takes.

- Rinse your hair post-swimming
Exposure to salt water and chlorine takes its toll on your strands. So, every time you swim in the sea or take a dip in the pool, remember to shower afterwards to quickly rinse your hair. This will help get rid of some of the salt, which can have a drying effect on your tresses. Also, void towel-drying as an extra precaution, try to reduce the amount of stress your hair undergoes.
- Protect your hair
With heat damage, prevention is everything. For the ultimate protection against heat, give your hair a good spritz of heat protection spray before styling – so you can straighten, curl and dry with confidence.
- Keep your hair moisturised in summer heat
When traveling, be sure to keep a small size bottle of moisturizer to keep hair pliable throughout the day, as sometimes we need that refresher to keep curls hydrated and soft. Fill it up with water, some leave-in conditioner depending on what your hair needs and a few drops of your favourite hair oil. Shake the mixture and spray it on your curls to refresh them mid-day – the ultimate summer spritz.
