Types of Summer Hair Damage

The type of hair damage is caused by the sun’s UV rays. It can cause the hair protein to break down, leading to dryness, dehydration, and frizz and affect the colour of your hair, too.

Swimming pools and showers are the biggest culprits of chlorine damage. The chemical is capable of causing breakage, dryness, and discolouration.

Salt water can contribute to dryness, dehydration, and frizz. Though a little bit of occasional salt exposure is fine, a long summer of it can cause damage.

Humidity itself doesn’t cause immense damage to your hair, but handling tresses incorrectly in humid environments can lead to concerns like breakage and frizz.

After Summer Haircare FAQs


Hair is often dry, dehydrated, splitting, or facing some other form of damage by the end of summer. Visit an expert in-salon for the best reparative treatments and use restorative products at home, too, like moisturising shampoos, nourishing conditioners, and rejuvenating hair masks.


Damaged hair or strands that are feeling a little lacklustre can be brought back to life through professional salon treatments and an at-home routine with restorative products. Speak with a stylist to find a routine that’s best for your hair type and the damage it has.


Summer itself doesn’t cause hair damage, but many conditions and elements of summer can contribute to hurting your tresses. Chlorine, salt water, humidity, and excessive sun are all often a part of summer and too much exposure can cause breakage, frizz, discolouration, and dehydration.


Use preventative measures to minimise hair breakage. Nourishing shampoos, conditioners, and masks as well as protective styling products are essential. Be gentle with your hair and avoid brushing roughly or exposing it to additional heat.


The best line of defense is a combination of good hair products and physical protection. Prep hair with nourishing cleanse and condition then use a UV or heat protectant prior to styling. If you’re outside, a hair covering like a hat, can be helpful, too.
