7 Summer Hair Tips from Pigtails & Crewcuts

Trim early and often. Dry and dead ends will become even more unruly-and unsightly-when exposed to sun and chlorine. Beat the heat with a trim and schedule regular appointments throughout the summer to keep hair looking healthy.


Shampoo gently. Go easy on your hair! Find a shampoo that’s free of sulfates and detergents. Your natural oils are important, and the chemicals in some shampoos can strip those oils away. Talk to your Pigtails & Crewcuts stylist about what shampoo is best for your hair.


Soak then swim. Take a tip from professional swimmers and get your hair wet in the shower before diving in the pool. Hair acts like a sponge when it takes on water. If it’s already wet, it will absorb fewer pool chemicals.


No green from chlorine. Chlorine has a way of turning even the prettiest hair green and straw-like. Speak with your Pigtails & Crewcuts stylist about an anti-chlorine shampoo you can use to protect your lovely locks.


Detangler detour. Pools and beaches are a surefire way to a head full of tangles. Use a detangler before you brush so that you’re not ripping through a head full of knots.


Condition yourself. Sun, wind, water-they can all wick the moisture right out of your hair. Be sure and condition consistently to give your hair what it needs all summer long to truly shine. Talk with your stylist at Pigtails & Crewcuts for recommendations on a good shampoo for you.


You are what you eat. Research has shown that omega-3 fatty acid is great for healthy hair. So eat your spinach! Along with salmon, tuna, eggs, walnuts, olive oil and other foods.
