Summer means many things. For some, it is going to the beach and getting an envious tan; for others, however, spending time outside may not be their favorite part, because their hair may pay for all those fun hours under the sun. If you belong to the last group, you don’t have to worry. Morrocco Method’s got your back! In the following lines, you will find the most common summer hair problems and how to fix them.
Lifeless, Weighed Down Hair
Fine, straight hair can become limp when exposed to humidity. Moisture from the air settles on the surface of this type of hair instead of getting into it, hence the weighed down effect. Our Sapphire Volumizer Mist Conditioner and Moisturizer will do the trick for this type of hair; with its natural grapeseed extract, the humidity cannot stay on the shaft, it will make your hair look thicker and fuller soon after use.
The heat or any outdoors activity can make your body sweat more. As a result, some people experience sweaty and oily hair. Although, some recommend showering more often to get rid of the excess oil, some people don’t have the time to take several showers throughout the day. For a quicker and safer fix, we recommend using our Volcanic Dry Shampoo, whose main ingredient, bentonite clay, will help absorb excess oils and give your hair an added boost of volume.
Swimmer’s Damaged and Dull Hair
Chlorine and salt water sap moisture from already dry hair. The reason behind this lies on the fact that these substances make the cuticle of the hair start to lift. When these layers lift, they allow chlorinated or salty water to get into the center of the hair and make it more brittle. To reduce this effect, spraying your hair with our Diamond Crystal Mist Conditioner and Moisturizer 15 minutes before swimming can help protect your hair; you can also coat your hair with a layer of Pearl Essence Crème Rinse. Putting a swimming cap on would reduce the damage even more. Also, applying some Euro Oil on the ends of your hair can help restore some of the lost moisture. Lastly, the scalp can be in danger too if you are under the sun for too long. To treat a sunburned scalp, you can apply our Blood of the Dragon Styling Gel, to the sunburned areas. With its high concentration of aloe vera, it will refresh and soothe the areas that need it the most.
Puffy and Frizzy Hair
Curly, coarse and chemically treated hair is often moisture depleted, making the cuticles on each strand rise, making them more porous. This type of hair absorbs moisture from the air which makes the hair shafts swell up. This begets a big, wild hair style. To tame the frizz down, we recommend using our 24/7 Styling Dragon Pomade which, thanks to its beeswax, will help you define and style your hair naturally for hours.
Taking care of your hair in this time of year is essential. To maintain its health and shine, besides the advice given above, using our 5 element hydrating shampoos and conditioners can help restore your hair’s vitality. One more thing! Don’t forget to wear a hat or scarf whenever you go outside.
