- Protect your hair when outdoors: Remember to always wear a wide brimmed hat when the sun is shining and whenever you are participating in outdoor activities. Whether you are sunbathing, going for a hike or having a barbecue with friends during summertime, the hat will protect your hair and its color from the harmful sunrays and prevent dryness.
- Double up the protection at the pool or beach: When you go swimming, you expose your hair not only to the sun and heat but also to Chlorine or salt water, which can strip off hair of its hydration and color even more. That’s why you need to double up the protection by wetting your hair with sweet water and coating it with a conditioner like Pantene Pro-V Milky Damage Repair Conditioner before dipping in the pool.

- Stock up on the conditioner: The golden rule for protecting your hair in the summer is to lock out the moisture in the air which causes your hair to expand and look frizzy. In order to avoid that, you need to always keep your hair hydrated which is the result of regular applying Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner. So, don’t skip this step when taking a shower and use Pantene Rescue Shots Hair Ampoules for extra hydration once or twice a week and you should be safe from hair damage.
- Style your hair when wet if you have curly hair: Humidity can cause curly and wavy hair to expand even more, which turns into frizz once your hair starts to dry out right after a shower. So, the early you start styling your curly hair the better. Use a curl cream when your hair is still wet to nourish it and lock out the moisture.
- Don’t over wash your hair if it turns greasy: Heat and sweat will make your hair look greasier. In the summer, even your scalp sweats which leads to extra sebum and causes your hair to look greasy faster, which is a disaster for fine straight hair. Instead of over washing it and causing damage to your hair in the process, its’ better to use a dry shampoo in between your showers.
