The Ultimate Summer Hair Care Routine: 2021

With July in its full swing, it’s the perfect time to get started on your summer hair care routine. Throughout the years, you may have seen the world of hair care evolve. Well, this summer is the summer of love, and you’ve got to love your hair. 

Recognizing what your hair needs in terms of nutrition, moisturization, and growth is the key to formulating a summer hair care routine that works for you. Lucky for you, Botanic Hearth has the best summer hair care tips to let you know how to take care of hair in summer at the comfort of your home. 

Natural Hair Care Tips for the Summer 

The most incredible tip for all seasons is to keep it natural. When you start using products that contain harsh chemicals on your hair, you are bound to cause damage in the long run. In the summer, your hair is already so vulnerable to damage because of the scorching heat. To avoid this, incorporate natural ingredients such as oils in your summer hair care routine.

This brings you to our first tip:

  1. Protection from the Sun 

The sun emits harmful UV radiation, which can damage your hair and skin by making it look burnished and dull. Just like we protect our skin from the sun with sunscreen, we must also protect our hair. And no, we don’t mean you need to start lathering your hair with sunscreen! 

Other forms of protection, such as scarves and hats, can protect the hair quite effectively, especially if you’re out in the sun for prolonged periods of time. 

  1. Managing Grease  

Our next tip is about grease – not the movie Grease but the grease on your scalp. While oil in your scalp helps the hair stay moisturized, too much oil could be bad for your hair. Not only does it weigh your hair down, making it appear flat at the roots, but it also blocks beneficial nutrients from entering your scalp. 

To manage a greasy scalp, get a good shampoo that cleanses your hair thoroughly. The Botanic Hearth Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo is perfect for precisely this. It is specially formulated to clarify your scalp and nourish your hair without drying it out. Shampoos like these are exactly what you need to find the balance between grease and moisture.

  1. Avoid Heat Styling 

Heat styling should be a big no-no all year round, especially in the summertime. When you style your hair with excessive heat, your hair tends to frizz up due to the humidity. This leads your hair to become dry and makes it more prone to breakage. 

If you still want your hair to look flawless and styled each time, try an alternative to heat styling. Heatless hair is back in fashion, so definitely give some heatless hairstyles a go this summer! 

  1. Don’t Skip Conditioner! 

Conditioner is an essential part of any hair care routine, through all seasons, especially summers! A good conditioner will help reduce frizz caused by humidity and provide moisture and hydration to the hair. Moreover, it will give your hair added shine. 

One way to recognize a good conditioner is by checking its ingredient list. If it contains mostly natural ingredients, it is definitely worth having in stock. Botanic Hearth Top 6 Essential Oils Shampoo and Conditioner Set is the perfect example of this type of conditioner. It is made with a vibrant blend of Lavender, Tea Tree, Peppermint, Rosemary, Ginger, and Eucalyptus oils, perfect for hair growth. Another tip would be to get a set of shampoo and conditioner because they usually complement each other nicely. 

  1. Hair Serums are a Must 

Hair serums are part of every hair care routine that we often forget. Botanic Hearth is here to remind you to never forget hair serums. 

They effectively protect your hair against harmful environmental pollutants after a wash and help combat frizz. They also add a layer of luster to your hair, especially if it’s drier than usual. 

Botanic Hearth Keratin Anti-Frizz Serum contains olive oil and silk protein that deep condition and smooth hair, promoting moisture retention for a smooth finish. Hair serums can also be applied before using heat on the hair, minimizing long-term damage. 

  1. Mask Up 

Last but not least, always squeeze in a hair mask once a week to complete your summer hair care routine. A mask helps to revitalize the hair and restore nutrients into your hair. Botanic Hearth Argan Oil Hair Mask detangles, hydrates, and deeply nourishes dry and damaged hair in the summertime. Use it once a week for visibly softer and fuller hair.
