Protecting Your Hair During the Summer Months

This post is sponsored by Nioxin. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. Thank you so much for supporting the brands that I love! 

It has always been a dream of mine to live right by the ocean and now that we do, I take extra caution to protect my strands since they take a beating during the summer months! Between the sun drying it out and the significant humidity we have, I have learned a few tips and tricks along the way to get your hair in the best condition that it can be! The first step is making sure you are taking great care of your hair with the right shampoo & conditioner. As you already know, I have been using Nioxin’s System Kit #5 to keep my hair feeling thick and beautiful after the birth of my first two babies. For the last few months I have been using their Night Density Rescue and I have to say that I have noticed a big difference in the thickness of my hair! It’s a night time treatment that comes with a pipette and you simply add a few drops to your scalp and rub around with your fingertips. My hair used to fall out in CLUMPS after I had Ellie and I was in awe at the amount of hair loss I had, but this product alone has been amazing!

Protecting your Hair During the Summer Months

1.) Hair Coverage // I am a HAT girl through and through. I love wearing baseball caps, straw hats, fedoras, anything really! This gorgeous Brixton hat is my go-to for the beach and it helps to keep the sun from beating down on my locks!

2.) Stay away from hot tools // This can be a difficult one, I know! No matter what product  you use as “protection”, the best protection is to avoid them altogether! Air dry your hair and embrace your natural waves. What I love to do is put a braid in before bed and then let the locks fall in the morning. Voila! Instant waves without hot tools!

3.) Nourish your locks // Using Nioxin’s Deep Repair Hair Masque, using it 1-2 times per week to give your hair a little treat! It strengthens your hair shaft against damage and in turn, reducing breakage!

4.) Protect your Scalp // Wearing your hair in a ponytail will help and if you want to wear it down, just make sure to hit that scalp with some SPF! A lot of people will forget that the scalp also needs SPF! They make an SPF powder specifically for scalps that you can buy! 🙂

5.) Cut your hair // Make sure to get a fresh trim in time for summer! It will reduce breakage and ultimately keep your hair healthier, longer!

    I spend a lot of time at the beach (I’m looking at the ocean right this minute) and I tend to have dry hair anyway, so I have to be extra careful during the summer months. I really need to try the deep repair hair masque!

    That is my dream as well! We are hoping to move to Florida within a couple of years, so I’ll be sure to check these out. I don’t need damaged hair!

    I definitely could use those products. My hair gets so dry it almost feels like it’s brutal or will break. I am about to go on a beach vacation so I definitely need a nourish my hair before hand.

    I’m from Florida and the humidity is the worst during the summer! My hair also gets dry from the outdoors so I must try out this product. Looks fantastic!

    One thing I never do during the summer is use heat on my hair. I go for the natural, wavy look.

    It’s funny because people think about protecting their skin from the sun but I doubt many people remember to protect their hair. These are great tips to keep hair healthy during the hot summer months.

    These are some great tips my hair is an awful state as I’ve neglected it for many months as I’ve not been able to take proper care of it for a few reasons. So now I can I’m hoping to pep it back up.

    YES! I just got my haircut yesterday! (a good looking man -stylist cut my hair and I felt like I was in heaven) anyways, I’ll have to try that brand of hair products over the summer, esp when swimming a lot because that dries my hair out (kids too!)

  12. May 26, 2017 / 11:50 pm

    I was just thinking I need to get something to take better care of my hair! We have had humidity and rain a lot here, which means my hair is a frizzy mess. I want to try and keep my hair as healthy as possible, and maybe not as crazy looking.

  13. May 27, 2017 / 12:04 am

    I need to give Nioxin a try. I’m shedding a lot of hair right now. Maybe this would help!

    Great hair tips for the summer moths. I totally use great products to nourish my hair and I do air dry, but, sadly, I have super kinky frizzy hair – so no foregoing the hot iron for me! ☺

    My daughter has long hair and spends a lot of time outside and at the pool in the summer. I have never heard of this brand before so I will have to look into it for her.

    These are all great summer month things to do to protect your hair. I have not really ever wore hats but this is a great idea. Using the Nioxin’s Deep Repair Hair Masque is a great idea too. I have used Nioxin’s products in the past and really loved them. Thanks for sharing the tips.

    I love my hair. I don’t want it to get damaged. I will take your tips to heart. I am currently thinking about re-styling it to make it look even better.

    I need good products for my hair in the summer because it is double processed. These sound really good will look into them.
