Skin suffers in heat and sun, but what about hair? Summer elements can wreak havoc on it.

Consider the effects of sun, heat, sweat, chlorine and salt water. A head full of luscious locks in spring can become dry, color-faded, greasy, frizzy — or all of these — by fall.

Last June, Allure magazine provided some tips to maintaining healthy hair before and after partaking in summer fun:

— Use a moisturizing or shielding product with UV protection.
— Wear a hat.
— Wet hair slightly and add a leave-in conditioner.
— Blot with a towel and then air dry instead of using a hair dryer. Run hands through to style straight hair, but consider a mousse or curl
cream for curly hair and simply separate curls when hair is dry.
— To add back shine, ask stylist to treat with a clear gloss, which gradually washes out. Or, purchase a do-at-home glaze or try the DIY trick of one cup water with two tablespoons apple cider vinegar in a spray bottle. Massage in after shampooing, wait three minutes, then apply a conditioner.
— Use a hair mask, which can even be applied before going out in the sun as the sun’s intensity will cause the mask’s nutrients to penetrate deeper into the hair shafts.

Summer frizz is a problem for many with thick and naturally curly hair due to high humidity. Allure’s recommended solution: a replenishing oil such as argan, camelia or pracaxi. For the opposite problem of limp, straight hair due to humidity or sweat, try a dry shampoo.  

Reader’s Digest lists hair restoration home remedies as a mixture of avocado and egg applied to wet hair for 20 minutes; butter massaged in and left for 30 minutes; or a half cup of warmed olive oil for 45 minutes. With all hair treatments, cover with a shower cap or plastic bag and shampoo and condition afterwards. RD.com also reminds to eat enough omega-3s or take a supplement.  

The takeaway, asserts Allure, is moisture, moisture, moisture.
