Don’t go into the warm summer months still clinging to your old hair habits. After getting that hot new look from your recent hair cut at the salon, you’ll want to take notes.

Don’t Wash with Hot Water

This should be easy to avoid as we approach summertime, but you might be surprised at how many people constantly wash their hair with scalding hot water. However, using hot water is damaging to your scalp and hair follicles. Washing your hair with hot water causes drying or in extreme cases, scalding your scalp. Be sure to set the water to a temperature that is lukewarm.

Deep Conditioning 

One of the top ways to keep your hair healthy is to deep condition your hair. By deep conditioning bi-weekly, your hair will be softer, healthier, and hydrated.

Stay Heat-Free

Staying away from blow dryers, curling irons, and other heat-infused methods of styling, you will be doing your hair a huge favor. Using heat can be highly damaging to your scalp and hair follicles. If you do opt to use one of these tools, be sure to use them on a lower setting.

Keep it Trimmed 

Due to the fact that the ends of your hair tend to become dry, brittle, and damaged over time, regularly having your hair trimmed prevents this damage from spreading to other areas of your hair.
