Thank you Dove for sponsoring this post. Dove Intensive Repair Shampoo and Conditioner works to repair hair and stop 90% of damage before it happens!

I am obviously not a natural blonde, so with all the stress I put on my hair between colorings I need a shampoo and conditioner that can help protect and repair the damage to my hair. This is especially true now that it’s summer because the strong sun is another factor that comes into play. Today I would like to share a few tips on how I keep my hair healthy and strong during the summer months.

Use a good shampoo and conditioner.

I have been a long time fan of Dove products. I have been using Dove Intensive Repair Shampoo and Dove Intensive Repair Conditioner to wash my hair. What I love about the shampoo and conditioner is that it actually prevents 90% of the damage before it actually happens. I wash three times a week using Dove Intensive Repair Shampoo and Dove Intensive Repair Conditioner and I notice the difference in the texture of my hair after each use.

Rinse your hair with cold water.

After washing, rinsing (and sometimes repeating), I like to do a final rinse with cold water. Using warm water during a shower will open up the hair’s cuticle to allow the shampoo and conditioner’s moisture to set in, but don’t forget to rinse with cold water to close the cuticle and lock in the moisture.

Air dry your hair in the summer time.

I seldomly use hair dryers when it’s hot out. During the hot summer months, I like to air dry my hair. You will be surprised at how quickly your hair dries! It gives the ends of your hair a much needed break and it improves the overall health of your hair.

Use heat styling tools at the lowest setting possible.

As you all know, I am huge on curling my hair. I actually only curl and style my hair once I have washed it. I leave it alone during the rest of the week and I am fortunate that my hair holds a curl very well. However, since your hair is already getting enough heat from the sun, be mindful to use your heat styling tools at the lowest setting possible.

Don’t forget sun protection for you hair.

Did you know the sun can actually damage your hair? We are quick to forget that UV rays not only damage our skin, but also take a toll on our hair as well. I can actually feel my hair getting dry after a long day out at the pool. You should always be mindful to protect your hair by wearing a wide brim hat to prevent UV rays from penetrating your strands.

I love these tips! I rarely use a blow dryer over the summer because it saves my hair plus I just get extra hot because of how high the humidity is. I do try and use my straightener on a lower setting if I do end up using it.

Your hair is beautiful. Chlorine is hard on hair. Someone had told me to wet hair and put conditioner on it before getting into the pooI to help protect your hair. I have not used this tip but once or twice so I’m not for sure how well it works.

Your hair looks so good! I’m a huge fan of Dove hair products!
