Summer at the Jersey Shore promises sun, sand, and surf—a trio that, while fun, can be tough on your hair. Preparing and protecting your hair for this environment is crucial to maintaining its health and vibrancy. Whether you’re planning to soak up the sun on the beach or enjoy the nightlife, here’s your ultimate guide to keeping your hair looking its best.

Understanding the Summer Hair Challenges
The main challenges for hair during the summer at the Jersey Shore include UV hair damage, saltwater, and humidity—all of which can lead to dry, brittle, and frizzy hair. But don’t worry; with the right hair care practices, you can tackle these issues head-on.

Kick off with a trim

Begin your summer with a fresh trim. Cutting off split ends reduces the chance of further splitting and breakage.  Plus, a neat trim will keep your hairstyles looking clean and fresh.

Moisturizing Hair Treatments

Before heading out to the beach, apply a leave-in conditioner or a hair oil treatment.  These products help lock in moisture and keep your hair hydrated against the drying effects of saltwater and sun.  For deep nourishment, consider weekly moisturizing hair treatments.  Treat yourself!

Opt for Natural, Effortless Hairstyles

Summer is the perfect time to embrace natural hair textures. Opt for loose, comfortable styles like braids or a messy bun to minimize exposure to elements and reduce the stress on your hair strands. Beach-ready hairstyles not only look chic but also keep your hair under control in windy beach conditions. Book an appointment now and we’ll show you how. 

Chlorine and Saltwater Defense

After a swim, rinse your hair with fresh water as soon as possible. Salt and chlorine can build up and dehydrate your hair. For extra care, use a clarifying shampoo once a week to remove any residue and follow up with a rich conditioner. 

Schedule a weekly blow out and add this treatment. 

Frizz Management

Humidity at the shore can make hair frizzy and unmanageable. Anti-frizz hair products or humidity-resistant hairstyles can be your best friends. Look for products that seal the hair cuticle and provide a barrier against moisture. Give us a call, we’re here to help!

Sunscreen isn't just for your face and body

Your scalp is skin and can burn just like any other part of your body.  Use a hat or scarf to cover your head when the sun is at its strongest.  Products with built-in SPF can also protect your scalp without weighing down your hair.
