The #1 problem in the natural hair community is combating dry hair. For our textured hair this is definitely an issue. Cold weather robs our strands of moisture. The spring and summer months we can turn it around. Humidity can over-saturate the hair with moisture. Then when it dissipates the hair is left feeling super brittle.

Tips for Keeping Natural Hair Moisturized in the Summer Heat

Summer is one of the best times of the year.

A time to explore, travel, and soak up the sun. All of that sounds nice, but the same can't be said for your hair. Harsh sun rays damage hair, dry it out and can even fade your color. That’s why when summer comes around, it’s time to revisit (and revamp) your hair routine. Higher humidity levels and temperatures suck the moisture out of the hair. Because summer conditions differ so much from winter conditions for example, the products used should be modified in order to support healthy moisture levels during that time.
