We are in the middle of summer, and so we thought we would share some
tips for maintaining fabulous hair during these hot summer months:
1. Conditioning your hair is a must during the summer. Use an intensive conditioning agent, like our Vitamin-Fortified Jamaican Black Castor Oil Conditioner and an intensive treatment once per week.
Tip: Mix our Vitamin-Fortified Conditioner with JBCO for a deep conditioning treatment. Also try our Herbal Gro Pomade to give your hair that ultimate shine and bounce without that greasy effect and feel.
3. Tip for our natural hair sisters: Keep your hair moisturized by purchasing a spray bottle; fill it with water and our Jamaican Black Castor Oil Conditioner. Spray it on your hair throughout the day to seal in moisture and to prevent your strands from drying out in the sun. If you work-out frequently, a protective hair style is the best option to maintain your hair. Also, generally you can protect your edges during workouts with a dri sweat edge head band.
4. For our Caucasian sisters: Try to limit your use of the blow dryer and flat iron. The air is more moist in the summer months and so it may take longer to dry and style your hair, which can result in further drying and damage. However, if you absolutely must use styling tools, then liberally apply a heat protectant like our Ultra Glow Creamy Coconut Oil Leave-In Conditioner, beforehand.
4. If you go swimming, be sure to thoroughly rinse out the chlorine or salt water immediately to prevent breakage or any serious damage to your hair.
Finally, the most important tip this summer is to keep your hair conditioned and moisturized!
