Hey, Busy Queens!

Are you ready to unleash your stunning textured hair and conquer the summer like a boss? Get ready for some sizzling tips to keep your locks looking fabulous in dry and humid climates. It's time to dive into the ultimate summer hair care guide for optimum hair wellness.

1. Hydration is Key: Whether basking in the desert heat or embracing the tropical humidity, moisture is your best friend! Deep condition regularly to keep your hair hydrated and happy. Opt for moisture-rich, concentrated products packed with nourishing ingredients.

2. Embrace the Power of Leave-Ins: Leave-in conditioners are your secret weapon against summer frizz. Did you know you don't need to rinse our conditioner butter bar? It will provide extra moisture and protection, taming frizz while keeping your curls defined and luscious throughout the day.

3. Sunscreen for Your Strands: Just like your skin needs protection from the sun's harmful rays, your hair does too! Look for styling products with built-in UV protection, or wear a hat during prolonged sun exposure. Protect your hair from the sun's damage to keep it vibrant all summer. 

4. Protective Styling: Give your hair a break from daily styling and embrace protective hairstyles. Braids, twists, buns, and updos look effortlessly chic and shield your hair from the elements. Plus, they're perfect for a quick and easy summer look that keeps you cool and stylish. Remember to switch it up often, as you don't want to apply too much tension to the hair or cause breakage from hair ties.

5. Fight the Frizz with Anti-Humidity Products: Humidity can be the arch-nemesis of textured hair, but fear not! Invest in anti-humidity hair treatments like our HYDRASILK® Hydrating Bond System which creates a barrier around your hair, locking out moisture and keeping your curls defined, even in the most humid environments. Find a salon that offers this service here.

6. More touch, less brush: hair manipulation should happen more with fingers and less with tools. Resist the temptation to comb or brush your tresses constantly. Summertime is hair's prime growing season, so massage that scalp for top-tier circulation and detangle while your textured hair is wet or damp and easier to comb through.

7. Moisture Sealing with Oils: Seal in moisture like a pro by incorporating natural oils into your hair care routine. After applying a leave-in conditioner to wet hair, apply a lightweight oil like argan oil, jojoba oil, or grapeseed oil to lock in that moisture and add shine. As your hair dries, the oil will prevent some moisture from escaping, and your curls will thank you!

8. When in doubt, HYDRATE: Is it time for a visit with your stylist? If your hair feels dry and brittle, it might be time for a treatment with our HYDRASILK® Hydrating Bond System. This professional service will repair hair on a molecular level to restore integrity and moisture into the hair. Let HYDRASILK® get you right and help restore any parts of your hair pattern that were damaged from mechanical, physical, environmental, or chemical stress.

9. Satin is Your Friend: If you have trouble keeping scarves and bonnets on your head at night, swap out your cotton pillowcase for a satin or silk one. These smooth fabrics minimize friction, reducing breakage and frizz. Your hair will glide effortlessly against the pillow, preserving your curls and keeping them intact for longer.

10. Hydrate from the Inside Out: Remember, healthy hair starts from within! Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. A well-hydrated body means well-hydrated hair. Fuel your body with a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and omega-3 fatty acids to promote healthy hair growth and maintain that enviable summer shine.

Armed with these top 10 tips, let's all agree to confidently rock those fabulous textured tresses this summer!
