It’s hot, it’s sticky and it’s probably so humid that all you really want to do is throw all your stuff in a beach bag and hit the rooftop pool, beach or neighbourhood park. When temperatures are high, the last thing you want to have to deal with is temperamental curls. There’s also the worry that eventually the scorching temperatures could be damaging to your hair. We’ve all seen what environmental damage looks like—breakage, split ends, hair that was once lustrous is now dull and dry. This stuff can really make it easy to hate having curly hair. However, with a few tiny modifications and additions to your haircare routine, you’ll be taking in all of the relaxation summer has to offer, without the frustration.
