Summer Hair Care Tips: How to Keep Your Locks Healthy and Hydrated

Summer is here, and with it comes the sun, the beach, and fun in the great outdoors. And although we love the summer, all of these activities can take a serious toll on your hair, leaving it dry, damaged, and dull. Fortunately, with the right products and a few simple tricks, you can keep your locks looking healthy and gorgeous all summer long. 

Stay Hydrated & Frizz-Free

As temperatures start to rise, a little extra hydration is essential to keep your hair moisturized and silky smooth. Our top pick is Nutriplenish Replenishing Overnight Serum. This lightweight, pillow-proof serum is designed to nourish and hydrate your hair while you sleep, leaving it soft, silky and shiny. Infused with nourishing pomegranate seed oil, mango butter and coconut oil, this serum actually restores lost moisture with nutrients overnight, helping to strengthen and protect your hair from damage, while also smoothing frizz and flyaways. Simply apply a few drops to your hair before bed, focusing on the ends and any dry or damaged areas, and wake up to beautiful, healthy-looking hair—all summer long.

Practice Safe Sun 

Another summer must-do is to protect your hair from sun exposure, which can dry out and damage your locks. We recommend Aveda’s Sun Care Protective Hair Veil. This lightweight mist is infused with UVA/UVB filters, helping to prevent sun damage and color fade, while also nourishing and hydrating your hair. Simply spritz it onto your hair before heading out into the sun, and enjoy your day knowing your hair is protected from the sun.

Perfect Your Beachy Waves 

Summer is the perfect time for loose, beachy waves and curls, but the heat and humidity can leave your hair limp, lifeless, and lacking volume. That’s where Aveda’s Pure Abundance Style-Prep comes in—it’s the perfect product to help you achieve voluminous, beachy waves all summer long. This lightweight, pre-styling spray is infused with natural ingredients like passion fruit and açai oil to help boost volume and add texture to your hair.

Vacation Mode, Activated 

Want to make the most of your summer vacation time and still look your best in your vacation photos? Say less. Aveda’s Shampowder Dry Shampoo is the perfect solution for keeping your hair looking fresh and clean on vacation. This lightweight (and propellant-free) dry shampoo is made with naturally-derived powders that absorb excess oil from the scalp and hair, leaving your hair refreshed. 

Another product we highly recommend for your summer trips is Aveda’s Rinseless Refresh Micellar Hair & Scalp Refresher. This is a serious summer gamechanger—it gently cleanses the hair and scalp to remove sweat and oil buildup between washes without stripping away natural oils, leaving your hair feeling clean and revitalized, with a natural-looking finish. Bonus: Naturally-derived styling polymers help to tame frizz for up to 72 hours, even in intense humidity—so your hair can stand up to summer’s long days and afternoon showers. 

With these Aveda summer essentials in your hair care routine, you can keep your hair looking healthy, hydrated, and gorgeous all summer long. Whether you’re lounging by the pool, hitting the beach, or exploring the great outdoors, your locks will be ready for anything. So go ahead and enjoy all the fun and sun that summer has to offer, and let Aveda help you look and feel your best.
