Tips for maintaining a healthier scalp and hair during the summer months

Taking care of our hair is super important, especially when the summer heat kicks in and things get extra hot. You know how it is in the Philippines – it's like summer all year round, right? 😉 So, if you're heading to the beach and planning to soak up the sun, here are 9 tips to keep your hair in its best shape.


  1. Protect from UV Rays: Wear a wide-brimmed hat or use a scarf to shield your scalp and hair from the sun's harmful UV rays. This helps prevent sunburn on the scalp and protects your hair from damage and dryness caused by sun exposure.

  2. Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, as dehydration can lead to dry scalp and hair. Aim to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day to maintain moisture levels in your scalp and hair follicles.

  3. Rinse After Swimming: After swimming in chlorinated pools or saltwater, rinse your hair and scalp thoroughly with fresh water to remove chlorine, salt, and other chemicals that can cause dryness and irritation.

  4. Use Moisturizing Products: Switch to hydrating and moisturizing hair care products during the summer months to combat dryness and frizz caused by sun exposure and heat. Look for products containing ingredients like coconut oil, aloe vera, or hyaluronic acid to hydrate and nourish your scalp and hair.

  5. Limit Heat Styling: Minimize the use of heat styling tools such as hairdryers, straighteners, and curling irons during the summer to prevent further damage to your hair. Opt for heat-free hairstyles like braids, buns, or natural air-drying whenever possible.

  6. Protect from Chlorine and Saltwater: Before swimming, apply a leave-in conditioner or hair oil to create a protective barrier between your hair and chlorinated or saltwater. This helps minimize damage and dryness caused by these harsh chemicals.

  7. Avoid Tight Hairstyles: Avoid tight hairstyles like tight ponytails or braids, as they can cause tension on the scalp and lead to breakage and hair loss. Opt for loose, relaxed hairstyles to reduce stress on your scalp and hair follicles.

  8. Regular Scalp Massage: Gently massage your scalp regularly to improve blood circulation and promote healthy hair growth. Use your fingertips to massage in circular motions, starting from the front and working your way to the back of your head.

  9. Protective Styles: Consider wearing protective hairstyles like braids, twists, or buns to shield your hair from the sun and reduce exposure to environmental elements. Just make sure these styles are not too tight to avoid scalp irritation.


Prevent scalp irritation caused by harmful chemicals. Switch to an effective, yet gentle hair care!


"Lovely texture I am so surprised this worked SO WELL. I’m a curly girl and it’s really really hard for me to find shampoo and conditioner that doesn’t dry my hair out but not only does the shampoo not dry my scalp the conditioner works so well hydrating my hair. Will definitely use this for a long time!"
