Easy healthy hair tips to help protect your tresses while on your adventures this summer and the latest products from Matrix Canada.
Summer is here! We are now into July (what?!?) and enjoying some heat and that dreaded humidity. That means it’s time to change your winter hair-routine to your summer routine. I’m always so excited during this time of year, because that means I can try new hair products and improve my hair-care. Matrix Canada sent over some of their latest Matrix hair products and I couldn’t wait to try them out!

Many of us are getting out and enjoying the warmer weather, it’s important to remember that even just a few days in the sun spent on that tropical vacation (or Vancouver lately), can create a total downhill spiral for your hair, especially when salty ocean water and sandy beaches are involved. Dry, frizzy ends anyone?

I’ve always been one to wash and air-dry my fine hair as often as possible, especially in the warm-weather months, believing that the less additional heat I use, the less dry and damaged my fine, fine hair will be. But since we live in Vancouver (not the desert), there’s a whole set of haircare obstacles to overcome, including humidity and heat, which I’ve found creates annoying, unwanted frizz and dryness.

5 Summer Hair Tips with Matrix Canada

1. Use a Leave-In-Conditioner any time you will be outside for more than a few hours. This is an easy way to protect hair no matter what activities you will be participating in outdoors. Spray onto hair evenly and scrunch with fingers to help your hair absorb the conditioning agents. Extra points for placing your hair in a braid to help keep salt, sand, and sunshine from penetrating much of your hair.

2. Wear a Hat. Especially when you’re anticipating a full day of sunshine where shade may be scarce. The bigger and wider the brim, the better! And thankfully, big sun hats are always in style, for this very reason! I’ve been wearing mine literally all season so far! This is also double duty since you’ll be protecting your face and skin!

3. Dampen Hair Before Dipping Into The Pool. If you know your hair will get wet, this is an absolute must. By wetting your hair first, it helps prevent nasty, harsh pool chemicals from absorbing into the hair. Getting some swimming in for your workout? You can do one even better here, by applying a deep conditioner or hair mask to hair before putting on your swim cap. The conditioner will provide a super hydrating deep treatment while you swim! Be sure to rinse hair well after getting out of the water.

4. Treat your hair to some major TLC by regularly applying a repair treatment. Hair is in need of some major hydration during the hot humid summer months, and a product that can work overtime by both restoring hair to its natural, healthy state, while also protecting it from the sun, is a complete lifesaver and one that should be on a frequent rotation in your beauty routine this summer.

5. Spend less time washing your hair, and more time conditioning it. Shampoo can be drying and strip hair of the natural oils it needs to protect itself from the sun, humidity, salt, and sand. Try to limit your shampoos to twice a week, but always condition hair whenever you wash it. Use a handy dry shampoo throughout the week to keep hair shiny, healthy, and clean, without stripping it of the much-needed hydration it needs to protect itself from hot weather.

I also add the collagen in this post, to my morning tea that I feel has helped my hair strength and shine.

    I love the packaging and I am always looking for new products for my hair especially since I have flat, thin hair. I will have to see if these are available in the US.

    You know, I never have used conditioner. I think because I never have my hair doesn’t need it now. I think if you start using it you need it more. I was sad that my current brand of shampoo just changed the fragrance. I don’t like the new fragrance. These look like good products to use.

    Enjoy the journey!
