Summer Curl Care 101

by Linda Ripoll in News on 12th July 2013


This has already been an epic summer season and we’re only half-way through. With so many wild fluctuations in temperature, climate and weather, it can be hard to figure out a hair care regimen that will keep your curls healthy, shiny and frizz-free. Fortunately, our entire mission here at Mixed Chicks is to keep your hair looking its best! Here are some of our best tips for gorgeous curls all season long:

  • Take a spray bottle and fill it with 1 part water and 1 part Mixed Chicks Leave-In Conditioner to help define curls and protect from sun and water while working on that tan!
  • Whenever you take a dip in the pool, river, lake or ocean, be sure to wash hair with Mixed Chicks Sulfate-Free Shampoo hair and condition with our best-selling Leave-In Conditioner immediately afterwards in order to rid hair of chlorine, saltwater and other environmental pollutants and restore nourishment to parched curls.
  • Keep hair and scalp covered as often as possible especially if you plan on spending several hours outdoors. Opt for a great hat, scarf or bandana to protect the delicate skin on the scalp from sunburn and your strands from drying out.
  • If you plan on doing lots of outdoor activities, ramp up your deep conditioning treatments to twice a week since you need more moisture and hydration. For added benefit, add a hot towel which helps the conditioner penetrate the hair shaft and nourish your curls from the inside out.

These are just a few of our favorite summer curl care tips. We welcome you to share some of yours! What are your favorite ways to maintain your curls during the summer season?
