Summer is here, and with it comes sun, sand, and surf. For surfer girls, the beach is not just a place to hang out - it's a way of life. But all that sun and saltwater can take a toll on your hair and skin. In this blog post, we'll share some summer haircare tips from surfer girls, and introduce you to some of our favorite products from Surf Soap that can help keep your hair and skin looking and feeling their best.
Tip #1: Protect Your Hair from the Sun
The sun's UV rays can be harmful to your hair, causing dryness, split ends, and even hair loss. To protect your hair from the sun, wear a hat or a scarf, or apply a leave-in conditioner that contains UV protection. Surf Soap's Rehab Balm conditioner is perfect for this - it contains a blend of nourishing oils and UV filters that protect your hair from the sun's rays while also nourishing and hydrating your strands.
Tip #2: Rinse Your Hair with Fresh Water
Saltwater can be extremely drying to your hair, so it's important to rinse your hair with fresh water after you've been in the ocean. This helps remove salt and other impurities that can cause dryness and damage. After rinsing, apply a deep conditioning treatment like Surf Soap's Muku Milk conditioner, which contains a blend of nourishing ingredients like coconut water, chlorella extract, while carrot and kale provide moisture and improve hair's barrier function.
Tip #3: Use a Natural Lip Balm
Sun, wind, and saltwater can all contribute to dry, chapped lips. To keep your lips soft and hydrated, use a natural lip balm like Surf Soap's Better Butter lip balm. Made with a blend of nourishing ingredients like calendula, cocoa butter, and coconut oil, it provides long-lasting hydration and protection for your lips.
Tip #4: Avoid Heat Styling
Summer is the perfect time to embrace your natural hair texture, and avoid heat styling tools like flat irons and curling wands. These tools can be damaging to your hair, especially when combined with sun and saltwater exposure. Instead, opt for a natural, beachy look by applying a styling leave-in conditioner like Muku Milk to your hair and letting it air dry.
Tip #5: Get Regular Trims
Regular trims are essential for keeping your hair healthy and free from split ends. Schedule a trim every six to eight weeks to keep your hair looking its best, and use a nourishing hair balm like Surf Soap's Rehab Balm as a leave-in treatment to keep your ends hydrated and protected between trims.
