It’s peak summertime, and you know what that means: time to hydrate! It’s no secret that UV rays and ocean waves are rough on otherwise healthy locks. But why is moisture so crucial to maintaining salon-fresh locks, and what products do the trick?

Nutriplenish Summer

Look Great & Hydrate

Hydration is our summer superpower! While keeping hair moisturized is always key to luscious locks, the increased heat, sun exposure, chlorine and salt during the summer months make this even more challenging.

Luckily, we have locking-in moisture down to a science. Here are our favorite tricks to beat the heat:

  • Protect hair from UV rays: You’re likely aware of the damage UV rays can cause to your skin—but did you know that they’re equally as damaging to your hair? Look for products that shield from UV damage.
  • Use heat protection products: Protecting from hot tools is always a good idea, but it’s especially important during the summer months when hair dries out more quickly. A heat protection spray is a crucial step in your styling routine.
  • Moisturize often: Your first line of protection against the summer elements? Moisturizing hair care. A leave-in conditioner is perfect to spray after a dip in the pool, during a beach trip and throughout your day. Add a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner for a little extra TLC.
  • Check ingredients: Certain ingredients are drying and harsh on your hair—so know which ingredients to look for (and which to avoid!) Sulfates, parabens and sodium chloride can leave hair dry and brittle. Instead, look for extra moisturizing elements like butters, water, glycerin and oils.
  • Seal-in moisture with oils: Finish off your hydrating routine by locking in moisture with oil-based products.
