healthy summer hairstyles


Just like in any other season, during summer, it’s essential to pay attention not only to protecting our skin but also to how we wear and care for our hair. The mostly dry air, high temperatures, and UV radiation can cause significant damage to our hair both structurally and aesthetically, from the roots to the tips.

However, with some awareness, we can gain significant advantages and effectively defend ourselves during the hot summer days. This way, our hair can shine in its full glory in the late evening summer sunset.


Experts cannot emphasize enough to avoid using styling tools at too high temperatures for hair shaping, such as blow-drying, curling, or straightening, as this can lead to damage to the hair structure. In other words: the hair ends become split, and the hair becomes dry, weak, dull, brittle, and rough to the touch. Who wouldn’t want to avoid this?! However, exposure to high temperatures also leaves a mark on the scalp: our skin may become red, and dry, leading to uncomfortable itching, skin tightness, or even dandruff.

UV radiation does not spare us either because, in addition to impacting the integrity of our skin, the carefully prepared summer hairstyles for holidays also suffer during these months. Besides the still-popular balayage technique with lightened or fully bleached, dyed summer hairstyles, the untouched, healthy hairstyle is also significantly affected by harmful radiation. Not only does it destroy the pigments in the hair, but it also depletes one of the hair’s most important components, keratin, or rather its moisture content. Thus, the hair crown not only suffers damage equivalent to an improperly performed bleaching but also loses a lot of its elasticity.

Primarily among men – in the case of baldness on the crown, but many women also experience that after prolonged exposure to the sun, not only their nose, shoulders, chest, or any other part of their body gets sunburned, but their scalp is also capable of turning red if they are not careful enough. If you plan on spending a lot of time under the sun, it is also worth applying sunburn prevention measures to your scalp as well, depending on the surface, with sunscreen, or even with a hat or scarf.


For those who are not afraid to innovate or switch to something bolder, there are numerous opportunities to surprise yourself and your surroundings. Healthy yet trendy summer hairstyles can not only enhance your appearance but also have a positive impact on your comfort during hot days.

The most practical options during this time are various forms of pixie and bob hairstyles, as the latter can also be varied in many ways, such as layering or asymmetrical cuts, just like the pixie. Among the advantages of these styles is that they dry faster and can be easily tousled, eliminating the need for other hairstyling techniques.

These styles not only leave the neck and ears exposed but also are lighter on the scalp, resulting in less sweating and scalp irritation.

For those who are attached to their carefully grown and maintained hair crowns, we recommend loosely tied ponytails or braids. While tightly tied hair is unhealthy for the scalp and hair in any season, it’s especially important to pay attention to this during summer. A ponytail tied too tightly with a hair tie not only breaks the hair strands but also stresses the scalp, as it can weaken hair follicles, leading to hair loss. Moreover, in the summer heat, sweating can lead to the proliferation of fungi, causing further issues.


Just like everything else, our eating habits also affect our hair and scalp. If we don’t consume enough and appropriate nutrients, our scalp and thus our hair can weaken. Therefore, it’s advisable to consciously pay attention not only to protecting your hair externally but also to nourishing it from within.
