WaverWednesday: 3 tips for staying cool in the summer
Depending on where you live the heat and humidity in the summer can be tough on your hair. Last week, we talked about maintenance when wolfing and applying product. This week we’re going over a few tips that can help keep you cool in the summer while on your wave journey.
Keep a low cut
We already discussed wolfing and its purpose. If you’re starting out, wolfing is not really necessary to gain progress. Keeping a low cut when starting will help keep you hair manageable even when you sweat. A low cut is also ideal for building your foundation; your go-to brushes should be your medium and soft when keeping a low cut.
Wash with conditioner
During the summer you might find yourself needing to wash your hair more often. Shampoo is obviously the step to clean your hair, however shampoo can strip the natural oils from your hair if over used. This is where washing with conditioner comes in, or what some would call “co-washing”. This can help you retain moisture between the times you’re not using shampoo and clean your hair at the same time.
Drinking water should be done all year, but in the summer months it’s definitely a must if you want to get the best out of your hair. If you already drink water daily you’re already in a good position to protect your hair from the heat. If you don’t drink water daily, start now and within the next two weeks you should start to see a difference. For additional moisture it’s recommended to use a cream or oil during the summer months.
There are many things you can do to help protect your hair in the summer months. Following the tips above will give you a good head start in the right direction.
