Summer means the beach, pool parties and fun in the sun. It also means hair frizz, dryness, color fadeout and split ends. Unfortunately with the good comes the bad and summer can be a trying time for a woman's hair. The main culprit is dryness caused by the intense sun and the high temperatures. Wetting hair and letting it dry in the sun can cause a number of problems and if you are struggling to keep your locks looking great follow a few hair tips courtesy of the Beauty Bar.
Let's face it the number one threat to women's hair in the summer is lack of moisture caused by excessive dryness. This dehydration of the hair leads to those frizzy fro's, breakage and color fading that turns good hairstyles bad. Your fist concern needs to be keeping your hair moisturized. Look for shampoos and conditioners that are specially designed and formulated for moisturizing dry hair.

Using an intense hydrating mask once a week it a great way to care for hair that is weak, damaged or color-treated. Look for product that is rich in argan oil and protein so you can fortify and restructure hair that has been damaged by lack of moisture.
