Isn’t it boiling outside! Whilst many of us love the hot weather, our hair doesn’t!
High levels of heat can cause your hair to dry out and lose moisture.
The funny thing is that even though our hair doesn’t love heat, many of us see the summer time as the perfect period to wear our hair out. The choice to wear your hair out is often called ‘wash n go’ because all you have to do is wash your hair and…go!
So how can you wash n go without damaging your hair? Is it possible to wash n go without damaging your hair?
Here are some tips and strategies to bear in mind when doing a wash n go.
Condition. Condition. Condition!
Conditioning your hair is vital during the hot summer months. Make sure you condition before wash n going so that your hair is well moisturized and prepped to handle the heat. A super slipper conditioner will help with detangling and will make combing your hair so much easier.
Whilst wearing your hair out everyday is tempting, it could potentially cause a lot of damage to your hair and might increase the chances of single strand knots, tangles and split ends. Rather than wearing your hair out everyday, be selective and wear it out on alternative days. You could for instance wear it out on a Monday but not Tuesday, Wednesday but not Thursday and so forth.
Protect it at night.
The night time is the perfect period to nourish your hair back to health. Before dozing off and falling asleep, take a few minutes to detangle with a wide toothed comb or high-performing brush, apply oil to your hair and scalp and tie a headscarf. Doing these three things will protect your hair at night and prevent it from damage during the day.
