How to prep your hair for hot weather
With steamy days come the need to switch (or ramp) up your haircare. Chlorine, saltwater, UV rays, heat styling (and the rest!) are just as likely to cause split ends, colour damage and dry spells as the effects of winter.
Now, we’re not saying to skip the pool party - just prepare for it! At bh, we believe in planning ahead, so use products packed with ingredients to restore and maintain moisture and balance in that beautiful head of hair, no matter what summer activity you find yourself doing. .
Straight, curly, natural, thick or thin - no matter what your hair type, we’ve got your summer hair strategy sorted. Don't wait for the scorching sun to take it's toll - act now!
Sashay into summer with a fresh cut that’s wash-and-wearable. Warm weather is all about easy, breezy, low-maintenance looks that work for any occasion - but you need to get rid of those winter stragglers first. Cut those damaged strands off ASAP!
ADAPT YOUR STYLING APPROACH
Don’t overcomplicate things this season. The best kind of warm weather hair is soft, dishevelled and lived-in. It’s hair that’s rolled out of bed and gone straight down to the beach. These languid and breezy styles are synonymous with summer, and you don’t get them by slaving over your strands. Stick to updos, braids and beach-babe waves, and avoid overusing your heat tools. It’s too hot for those, anyway. Get yourself a trusty new hairbrush such as the gentle Michel Mercier Professional Detangling Hair Brush for Normal Hair and get styling.

Got three minutes to spare? Brilliant. That’s all you need to treat your tresses and make a huge difference. Apply a nourishing mask like the Dove Hair Therapy Intensive Repair Mask, and rinse it off for stronger hair, restored colour and a nourished scalp. That’s a pretty big payoff for such a small effort. For the best results, do this once a week. Make it a beauty ritual!
