Tips and Tricks for Great Summer Hair (2)

Previous Page
 
Styling
 
      Many women naturally adjust their styling habits in the summer, but these changes are generally born of convenience or comfort and generally address the short term, rather than making a more dramatic shift. But summertime is the perfect time to try out that shorter style. Lose some length, let go of some of the weight and make sure your hair is all set to make you look and feel your best.
 
      Itís also the perfect time to give your hair a break from all the styling stresses. If you have naturally curly or wavy hair, and are using a flat iron to straighten the hair every day (or if you curl your straight hair daily) maybe you should consider letting your hair have the summer off. Talk to your hairdresser and discuss simpler, low-maintenance looks that take advantage of your hair natural texture and wave. When winter arrives, youíll find your hair is in much better condition after a well-earned vacation.
 
      Finally, remember that many of the classic summertime hair accessories may not be the best thing for your hair. Ponytail holders that are wound too tightly, or barrettes that are overloaded, can both damage the hair and cause breakage. Instead, use combs and clips that are designed to hold the hair gently. Even hairpins are preferable to having to deal with a halo of broken strands from a ponytail that breaks the hair while trying to confine it.
 
      And as a bonus, for those women who want to enjoy the summer air (driving with the windows down, sunroof open, or in a convertible) a scarf is your best friend. Get yourself a silk-type scarf and stow it in your glove compartment. You can use it to wrap your hair and enjoy the blowing wind without wrecking your hairstyle. There are a wide varieties of scarf tying techniques that can make life infinitely more interesting (and can even combat a bad hair day.
