Summer Care for Men’s Hair

With the winter blues solidly behind us and the warmer months ahead, it’s time to get ready for summer! And with all of the fun in the sun to come, you should also get ready to take extra good care of your hair. Here are some essential tips for keeping your hair looking and feeling great while you enjoy your summer.

Shampoo More Often

In general, it’s a good idea to shampoo about three times per week if you want to keep your natural oils and enjoy the healthiest hair and scalp possible. But during the summer, you’ll be busy sweating outside and taking dips in the ocean or pool, resulting in more opportunities for your hair to get dirty.

While you still want to avoid shampooing your hair every day, it’s a good idea to shampoo every other day or to at least shampoo on the days when you are the most active. Be sure to stick to lukewarm water when you shower to prevent your hair and scalp from drying out.

Consider Getting a Shorter Haircut

While this may sound like blasphemy to those of you who love your long hair, it’s simply more difficult to manage during the hotter months of the year. Plus, you may find yourself wanting to shed some locks to help keep yourself a little cooler.

If you have long hair, consider getting a medium cut, such as a classic bro flow. This will make it easier to restore your hair length when the temperatures dip down again later on. And if you’ve been sticking to a medium cut, you might want to consider going shorter to make it easier to manage your hair during the summer.

Wear a Hat if You’ll Be in the Sun

In the same way UV rays can damage the rest of your skin, they can also be taxing on your hair and scalp. Wearing a light hat can be an effective way to keep your hair and your scalp safe from the effects of intense sunlight.

Removing your hat while indoors is not only respectful, it also ensures you aren’t increasing your chance of hair loss by keeping it on day and night. So put your hat on when you head outside and take it off when you come inside to maintain your hair’s health.

Use the Right Products

While it’s always a good idea to have quality hair products in your daily grooming routine, the summer is a perfect opportunity to step up your game. You should have a good conditioner on hand to provide your hair with nutrients and replenish its oils without leaving you with a greasy look.

A good go-to you can stock up on is Lavender Mint Moisturizing Conditioner by Paul Mitchell. You should also consider adding a leave-in conditioner to your routine to supply your hair with extra moisture. Tea Tree Hair and Body Moisturizer is perfect for providing a natural-looking hold while providing your hair with natural oils and moisture. It’s also a great multi-use moisturizer and post-shave product as well.
