Summertime fun brings a whole new set of hair care treatment problems from the intense heat to the severe damage salt and chlorine water can cause these next few months can be a nightmare for your mane!

Proper hair care, especially as the summer season heats up and everyone is looking to enjoy some outdoor fun, so to go from pool or beach to evening pop up parties without looking like you’ve just survived the humidity wind machine can be a challenge.

Enter hair restoration expert Dr. Baiju Gohil of Robotic Hair Restoration Long of Island (RHRLI), who provides the perfect solutions to the most common summer hair problems.

Swimming in the ocean

Sea water has a high concentration of salt, which can cause leaching of water out of your hair, thus making it dry and brittle. This can harden the overall texture of the hair, predisposing split ends.  Apply a conditioning treatment prior to entering the ocean. Leaving the conditioner is vital to keeping hair moist and soft. Finally, use a protective hair cream with SPF rating. 


Safe Solutions for Six Common Beach Body Concerns


Days at the pool

Chlorine water strips your hair of oils that are essential for keeping hair soft and natural; without the oils hair would eventually look like hay. The application of oil and silicone-based products is best in combating the effects of chlorine water.  Another option is to apply coconut oil, which helps slow down the absorption of chlorine into the hair.

Sunbathing

Prolonged exposure to the sun will damage the outside cover of the hair strand, called the cuticle. This can cause the hair to discolor, become dry and brittle, and even create split ends, thinning and frizziness. Wearing a hat is the best solution. You can also apply and leave in conditioner and/or a protective SPF hair cream.

 

Ten Fool Proof Ways to Change Your Skin and the Science Behind It - 

Humid Days

Human hair is extremely sensitive to humidity. Straight hair becomes wavy and curly hair turns frizzy or even curlier. Humidity causes hair to absorb water differently and unevenly, making it difficult to style.  Extra conditioning will help slow down the absorption of excess water. Trimming dried out split ends will help minimize frizzing of your hair on humid days. Use a silicone based sealer and limit exposure to the sun's rays, which can cause drying and damage to your hair.
