The upside of summer for your hair is that you finally get to enjoy your hair and not keep it tucked away because of the wind and cold. On the downside, you spend more time outdoors, which comes with some hair care challenges. 

However, it is possible to keep your natural hair healthy during this time. This article takes a look at tips that can be of help.

Tips to keep your hair healthy and hydrated during the summer months

  • Keep your hair covered: You want to cover your hair to keep it healthy and hydrated. Before spending time outdoors, you wear sunscreen to protect your skin from UV rays. Just like the sunscreen that protects your skin, hair covers also protects your hair. You can use hair covers like a turban, scarf, or hat. You also want to protect your hair with a swim cap before entering the pool.

  • Stay hydrated: Summer is that time of the year when you need to take your hair care routine serious. Hair loses more moisture during the summer. Therefore you need products with high moisture level like the Yes moisture Shampoo. This product leaves a mild and powerful cleansing formula that adds moisture and keratin protein to every strand while it refreshes, so you get the clean, soft, healthy hair you want. You can also use the Yes Moisture Leave-in Spray to keep your hair hydrated during the summer. Also, remember to drink a lot of water. 

  • Check product ingredients: Harmful ingredients in hair care products like petroleum and mineral oil will do the most damage to your hair during summer. Switch products with these harmful ingredients for paraben-free and rich in vitamins, UV filters, and antioxidants. You also want to stay away from rich silicone products because this ingredient can damage hair over time, especially with the added effects of summers.

  • Stay away from heat: Summer already comes with a lot of heat, and you shouldn’t stress your hair with more heat. Thus, you should stay away from heat tools during the summer. Keep a heat-free summer and avoid using a blow dryer or straightener on your hair during summer.


During summer, your hair is exposed to harsh elements, especially when you spend time outdoors. This is why we encourage you to keep your hair in a comfortable style that doesn’t cause extra stress. You should wear protective hairstyles like afro, braids and cornrows that keeps your hair healthy and ensures regrowth.
