During April and May, America’s hottest cities like Miami, Orlando, Tampa, San Antonia, and Phoenix have daily temperatures that reach above 80 degrees Fahrenheit (27 degrees Celsius). All other major cities have warmer temperatures that average between mid-50 degrees Fahrenheit (13 degrees Celsius).
Because of the impending hot weather, it is expected that your Natural Hair Beauties’ will spend most of their time outdoors. Her curls would equally be affected.
But gladly, we are here to make your NHBs prepare and all ready for the summer so her summer fun outdoors does not stop.
Here are 5 ways to get her curls ready for summer!
- Get a fresh trim
To keep a healthy curly hair, it is important that curls should be trimmed. Not only does trimming keep her curls at the desired length, but it also keeps her curls from tangling up or becoming really frizzy. Curls are advisable to be trimmed every 8-10 weeks.
- Use a frizz-free shampoo
As you may have noticed, hot weather is an ingredient to frizzy hair because of the amount of humidity in the air. To avoid this, applying oils and serum keeps fizziness at bay. Shampoo specifically cleans off sweat, dead skin cells, and hair products, that keep her hair healthy.
- Put on some conditioner
Shampoo is best paired with conditioner. While shampoo cleans the curls, conditioner makes hair softer and easier to manage. It even protects hair from damage. If your NHBs are heading to the beach, it’s also a great option to put on some leave-in conditioner to keep her curls from all kinds of breakage.
- Keep her curls protected
There’s no such thing as overcareful when it comes to your NHBs’ curls. Keep her hair protected by wearing brimmed hats with satin lining, satin scarves, or any protective covering for her hair.
- Drink more water!
Her curls do not only need water from the outside, but also from the inside. Keeping your NHBs hydrated gives moisture to her curls. Don’t make her miss a good amount of glasses of water to keep her curls moisturized and healthy!
