Our Best Recommendations to Repair Dry or Damaged Hair

What is Hot Girl Summer Doing to Your Hair?

We’re here for ‘hot girl summer,’ but not if it means dry and damaged hair! Check out these tips from the pros at Menagerie Style House to manage healthy hair while persevering all the heat and humidity North Carolina’s summer has to dish out.

1. Turning Up the Heat

Overusing heat styling tools could be taking the “hot” in “hot girl summer” a little too far, creating dry and damaged hair. Our best recommendations? Skip heat styling tools like curling or straightening irons and opt for natural styles. Braids could be an easy way to obtain beach waves without added heat! If you must use heat styling tools, make sure to use heat-protectant products too.

2. Skipping SPF

UV Warning: Prolonged exposure to UVA and UVB rays can damage cuticles, or the outer part of hair strands, leading to dry and brittle hair, split ends, frizziness, and/or discoloration. Protect your hair against the sun’s harsh rays with your favorite hat or scarf. You can also use an SPF product to shield against the sun.

3. Under Hydrating

Hydrate yourself, girl! We’re convinced the keys to hot girl summer are a giant glass of water and effective hydrating products. That’s taking on the battle from the inside out and outside in! Everything about summer is attempting to take your hair hydration away: high temps, saltwater, sun exposure, and more.
