It’s never too early to start prepping your hair for the summer.

From making regular trips to the hairdresser to using rich, moisturising products, there are plenty of ways to protect and nourish your hair to help it look and feel its best.
Hair extensions tend to dry out in higher temperatures, so adding moisture is a must. To learn more about caring for your hair extensions in the spring, take a look at our useful blog post on Hair Extensions During Spring: Everything You Need to Know.
It’s no secret that your natural hair and any type of hair extension can be damaged by the sun. Excessive heat causes the hair to become dry and brittle, making it more prone to breakage, and staying in the sun for too long can fade coloured hair. When you’re making the most of the summer months, you’ll want your hair to look soft, hydrated and vibrant, and there are plenty of ways to achieve this.
Protecting your head with a hat, using sunscreen and nourishing your hair with oils, serums, and deep conditioners can help maintain your hair and extensions throughout the summer. If you’re looking for more tips on how to get the most from your extensions, our blog post on 16 Summer Hair Extension Care Tips You Should Know is for you.

Before you swim, it’s important to take steps to prepare your hair to minimise damage, so you can enjoy yourself without having to worry about your locks. To find out everything you need to know, read our blog posts ‘Salt Water and your Hair Extensions: What to Know Before Taking a Dip’ and ‘What to Know When Swimming with your Hair Extensions on’.
When you’re abroad, there are many elements that might affect your hair and extensions, especially if you are in a warmer climate.
