9 Tips for summer hair care

Summer brings sun, sea, and sand, but it can also be challenging for the health of your hair. To help with these summer challenges, we share nine clinically-backed tips to keep your hair in optimal condition all summer long. 

1. Protect your hair from the sun

Just like your skin, your hair needs protection from harmful UV rays. Wear a hat or cap when you’re outside to prevent your scalp and hair from burning. If you’ve already sustained damage, Neofollics' Scalp Therapy Nourishing Mask is ideal. This non-greasy leave-in mask nourishes and restores the scalp, repairing damage and improving scalp condition. 

2. Hydrate

The sun and heat can dry out your hair, making it more prone to dryness and breakage. Ensure you drink plenty of water and use hydrating products. Our Hair Growth Conditioner is perfect for keeping your hair nourished and soft, especially after a day at the pool or beach.

3. Avoid excessive heat usage

Using heat tools like hairdryers, straighteners, and curling irons can exacerbate the sun's harmful effects. Try to let your hair air dry and opt for natural hairstyles as much as possible.

4. Rinse your hair after swimming

Chlorine in pools and salt from the sea can be very damaging to your hair. Thoroughly rinse your hair with clean water after swimming to remove these residues. Then, use the Hair Growth Conditioner to restore softness and reduce frizz.

5. Trim split ends

Heat and sun can cause split ends. Schedule regular trims every 6-8 weeks to keep your hair ends healthy and prevent the damage from spreading.

6. Use weekly nourishing masks

Treat your scalp with a nourishing mask. Neofollics' Scalp Therapy Nourishing Mask not only deeply hydrates but also nourishes your scalp, contributing to healthier hair from the roots.

7. Avoid tight hairstyles

Regularly wearing tight hairstyles like ponytails and braids can strain your hair. This tension can, over time, impair blood circulation to the hair follicles. Opt for looser, more comfortable styles to minimize damage.

8. Choose quality products

Using high-quality hair products can make a significant difference to the health of your hair. Neofollics products are carefully formulated and free from harmful substances such as SLS and other sulfates, silicones, and parabens.

9. Wash your hair less frequently

Washing your hair daily can strip away the natural oils that protect and keep it healthy. Try to wash it every two to three days using mild and nourishing shampoos and conditioners.


While summer can present challenges for your hair's health, these tips can help you keep it strong, healthy, and in optimal condition. Don’t forget to incorporate Neofollics products, such as the Hair Growth Conditioner and Scalp Therapy Nourishing Mask, into your summer hair care routine for the best results. Enjoy the summer while keeping your hair healthy and strong!
