Can you dye your hair in summer ?


Can you dye your hair in summer ?

Did you know that it can be trickier to color your hair when the temperature exceeds 30 degrees Celsius? In addition, summer and its particular climatic conditions can be extremely damaging to your hair and sometimes cause some damage. But why? First of all, because the summer heat causes our body to produce more sweat and sebum, which can clog the pores of our scalp and prevent the hair from absorbing the necessary nutrients. Then the sun dries and weakens our hair, making it more prone to break. Finally, frequent exposure to swimming pool chlorine and salt water can accelerate the drying process and affect the beauty of your colour more quickly. However, with a little care and care, you can always have the colored hair you’ve always dreamed of without compromising the health of your hair. So, can you dye your hair in summer? Here are our tips and tricks.

A little preparation does the best

Of course, we can dye our hair in all seasons. However, there are some things you can do during the summer months to minimize the damage to your hair. First, make sure your hair is healthy before coloring. Indeed, unhealthy hair is more sensitive to breakage and discoloration. They will be further impacted by staining products and may become very damaged.

To get it right, use a deep, revitalizing treatment and avoid exposure to heat too frequently. To make sure your hair is healthy and clean, use a clarifying shampoo to remove any build-up and impurity in your hair before coloring. This will help prevent the dye from clinging to these impurities, which can lead to gaps and uneven colour.

Remember to use a moisturizing conditioner after each wash to nourish the hair while the scales are open. You will have beautiful hair, shiny and ready to be dyed without risk. If your tips are damaged, you can opt for a natural nourishing oil such as argan or sweet almond oil in addition to the hair care. Just apply it out of the shower on the still damp hair.

Avoid hair dryers and straighteners in summer

Hairstyles made with thermal accessories like straightening iron, curling iron or blow drying can damage your hair as much as the sun. Therefore, you should avoid using them as much as possible in the summer. If you cannot do without a hair dryer, keep it as close to your hair as possible and use the coldest setting if possible.

Keep your blond in the heat

Before drying, use a heat-protective spray (in coconut water for example for a cool, light and moisturizing effect) to avoid damage. You can also use a hair dryer diffuser or choose a hair dryer with ionic function. It also reduces frizz and gives your hair shine.

Use heat and UV protection products

Sun and heat can cause extreme damage to your hair. It is therefore important to protect your hair before dyeing, but also after coloring. To do this, use heat and UV protection products in the form of hair masks or spray for ease of application.

These products protect your hair from the sun and UV rays, which can discolour and make it brittle. You can also use UV and heat protection sprays, which are designed to protect hair after coloring without weighing it down. As with day cream, we recommend that you spray it every day on your entire hair before leaving your home.

Protect your hair with a revitalizing treatment

If you have healthy, thick, natural hair, you can skip this step. On the other hand, if your hair is fine, colored or damaged, applying a care before coloring can protect it from breakage and discoloration. Use a treatment designed for colored hair.

You can apply the treatment to your hair before and/or after coloring. However, be sure to leave the treatment on your hair for the recommended time before applying the color. Otherwise, the color may take less well and cause color inequalities.

Choose the right dye and developer

The type of dye you choose can have a significant impact on the condition of your hair. Always check the label of your dye and opt if possible for products respectful of your hair nature. There are organic dyes, based on natural ingredients, that take care of the hair while offering beautiful reflections. If the dye you are using is of poor quality, it could cause irreparable damage to your hair mass.

All colors in summer

If you are using a strong colour, whether dark (dark, purple or chocolate) or bright (red, copper or blond), you may consider using an additional developer. A developer is a color enhancer that will allow your hair to better absorb color. In addition, the color will be more beautiful and brighter for a finish worthy of a hair salon. In addition, you should always use a shampoo and conditioner that protect the color when you have colored hair. This allows the color to last longer and avoid breakouts.

In conclusion, you can dye your hair in summer. Summer can even be the perfect time to change hair color or try a new style of hairstyle. However, if you want your color to last all summer, you should take into account the above tips. With a little preparation and daily care, you can protect your hair from heat and swimming in summer and keep the color you love.
