Our partners at Julien Farel Restore Salon & Spa provided us with a few tips to protect your hair from damage after a long day in the pool and sun.  And while summer may be drawing to a close this year, you can never be too careful, so we’ve included some habits that might be good to make (or break!) year-round.


4 Tips for Protecting Your Hair During the Summer

1.  Before heading into the pool, wet your hair first. This way, your hair won’t absorb any of the chlorine or chemicals from the pool water.

2. Take extra precaution with heat styling tools during the summer. Since hair tends to be dryer this time of year, heat styling can take an extra toll on your hair. Use heat-protective products like Julien Farel Styling Balms, which protect the hair and hold the desired style in place. Also, take breaks from your blow dryer every now and then.

3.  Wear a hat if you’re going to be out in the sun for a long period of time. The UV Rays not only sunburn your scalp, but also zap moisture from the hair.

4.  After you shower, use a microfiber towel to dry your hair instead of a regular towel that may cause friction, which leads to unruly frizz. Drying your hair with a t-shirt will work just as well.

Cheers to the team at the Julien Farel Restore Salon & Spa for the great summer hair tips!
