Summer Hair Problems Solved

How to Take Care of Hair in Summer – Top Tips from ZIGZAG Hair Salons

The long awaited summer season is finally here which means we may be spending more time outside.

But as many of us are aware, the summer heat doesn’t come without risks! As much as we need to protect our skin, our hair also needs some extra care during the summer months.

 Summer hair care can be a challenge as the hot sun, humidity, salt and chlorine takes their toll on our hair. Whether you’d like to know how to protect your hair from chlorine, protect hair from sun or protect hair from heat, the hairstylists at ZIGZAG are here to solve your summer hair problems.

Keep your hair happy and healthy all summer long with our expert hair tips brought to you by the experts at ZIGZAG hair studios.

How to Protect Your Hair from Chlorine

Frequent swimming in pools has noticeable effects on your skin and hair. Most swimming pools contain chlorine, which can make your hair brittle and can even give blonde hair a green tint! 

So if you plan to spend your summer days cooling down in a pool, be sure to protect your hair and prevent chlorine damage to hair, by wearing a swimming cap when in the pool. You can also invest in a chlorine-removing shampoo. 

Protect Hair from Fading During Summer

As hair colour is prone to fade in exposure to the sun, wearing a hat on a hot summer’s day helps to keep your hair colour glossy as ever. If you do need to swim or expose your hair to heat, we advise using a hair serum that helps hair colour last longer or a colour protecting shampoo and conditioner to prevent hair colour fade.

At ZIGZAG Hair Studios, we stock a full range of Goldwell Dualsenses Serums which are designed to give your hair the boost it needs – whether that is to lock in colour, add shine, revive curls or rejuvenate dull and lifeless locks. Find out more here.

The Best Way to Prevent Frizz During Summer

As one of the biggest summer hair problems we hear about, how to prevent frizz in the heat and humidity is a must cover.

in order to prevent frizz, we need to put moisture back into hair.  Frizz free hair can be achieved by using anti-frizz products for summer hair problems such as serums and hair oils. The hair experts at ZIGZAG Hair Studios can help advise you on the best anti-frizz products for you.

To lock in moisture before spending time in the sun, book a conditioning treatment at one of our ZIGZAG hair salon ‘serum bars’, to reduce the chances of frizzy hair on holiday.

How to Protect Hair from Heat

As the summer sun continues to shine, this can cause your hair to become dry and prone to breakage.  Wearing a hat in the sunshine is always a good idea to protect hair, however, a good heat protection spray and hair products containing UV protection is the best alternative for maximum protection. 

We can also rescue your tresses from heat trauma (as well as the damage that can be caused from bleaching and colouring) by using Olaplex’s innovative No. 3 Hair Perfector. Formulated to reconnect bonds that have broken down over time, it works by multiplying and rebuilding strands to prevent further breakage – hair is left looking and feeling revitalised.

Olaplex Hair Perfector provides deep and permanent hair repair. It helps prevent hair breakage and damage. Ideal for use on bleached hair, pre and after bleaching. Use once a week between chemical services to strengthen hair.

Cost £32.00 for 100ml.
