Now that summer is officially here, combating humidity and sweat is on our list of priorities, especially when it comes to our hair. In this post, I would like to share with you some of my best curly girl hacks that I have learnt over the years that have actually worked for me.
#1: Seal in the moisture
Moisturizing and conditioning are no strangers to our curly hair routine. However sealing in your leave-in conditioner with a non drying gel like Eco Argan Oil Gel
can help retain that moisture and keep your curls intact and frizz-free.
#2: Get your mane trimmed
Ideally, getting your hair trimmed every 6 to 8 weeks should keep your hair frizz free.You can just get a hair trim this summer and you’ll see the difference.
#3: Don’t brush the curls
Brushing your hair will only cause more frizz and breakage. Use your fingers or a wide tooth comb instead.
#4: Protect your hair from the sun
Just like skin, hair can get damaged from excessive exposure to the sun. Wearing a scarf or a hat can help protect your hair from the sun’s harsh UV rays(You're definitely thriving in this department if you're a hijab!).
Another tip would be using hair products that contain UV filtering properties like Shea butteror Sesame oil.
#5: Co -Wash
Because we tend to wash our hair more often during summer, a condition wash is the way to go, so you don't strip your hair off its moisture leading to that frizz that were trying to avoid.
#6: Wash n Go’s
Enjoy your wash n gos during summer since your hair will dry quickly and will look great throughout the day. I also try to avoid tying my hair up when its wet to avoid split ends.
#7: Deep condition weekly
Here I go again with the weekly deep condition. Its the solution for every curly hair problem (literally). Trust me on this, deep condition your hair once a week for a month and your hair will thank you.
Love and light,
