How to Keep Your Hair Hydrated This Summer

Posted by Janell Hickman on

Can you believe that summer is starting to come to a close? Yeah, us either. And though the low Caesar still reigns supreme, more and more guys are options for longer styles. That's been the trend in recent years and this season is no different.

Even if you aren’t a fan of the look — one thing we can all agree on is that dry hair is an absolute no-no. Keeping your hair healthy— even in the heat of summer — means it needs to stay hydrated. To help, we've compiled some of our favorite tips to moisturize your hair all summer.

Tip No: 1. Wash Less

You read that right. Some shampoos help to retain moisture, but part of the cleaning process is actually stripping the hair and scalp of oils and build-up that can clog your pores. Instead of washing with shampoo everyday, limit shampoo use to 3 times a week. That way, you allow your hair to recover some of its natural oils and keep it feeling fresh. 

Tip No. 2. Condition More

For more men, time is precious — and getting out of the door in ten minutes (or less) is a priority. But that doesn't always work if you want to take your grooming seriously. And it starts from the top, having healthy hair makes it easier to style. Dry hair is the enemy of your tight schedule. 

To avoid dry hair, make sure that you are replenishing moisture to your hair. Make sure you use hair conditioner the right way. After shampooing with warm water, coat the hair and scalp with conditioner. Let it sit for at least two full minutes, then rinse with cool water to lock in the moisture.

When you get out of the shower, allow the hair to air dry slightly before applying any products or use a T-shirt (or microfiber towel) to dry the hair. Why? It’s gentler on textured hair. 

Tip No. 3. Moisturize Often

Here’s a fact: Summer heat leads to air conditioning. It may feel great to cool down, but the changing elements throw your hair and skin’s moisture levels out of whack —just like going from the cold into a heated room in the winter.


Thankfully, you can combat dryness by being proactive and using a leave-in moisturizer is your best bet. Not only will it maintain moisture in natural hair throughout the day, but also keep anything from deep waves, loose curls to locs looking fresh this summer.
