Types of conditioners available to protect and repair natural hair in the summer and list of conditioners that are Fine Natural Hair improved. Not too long ago I shared how to take advantage of humid weather for hair growth. In that post, I mentioned the importance of protecting your hair from the sun’s UV rays (UVA and UVB). Your conditioners (rinse out, leave in and deep) are powerful allies in your arsenal of hair products for summer hair care. They protect and repair, providing your hair with prophylactic and therapeutic benefits. I’ll list them by type as well as share the brands I highly recommend:
- Rinse Out Conditioners – This type of conditioner not only helps to smooth the hair shaft but it also imparts nutrients to the hair that help restore moisture, shine and flexibility. Recommended rinse out conditioners: Herbal Essences Hello Hydration, Dove Nourishing Oil Care Conditioner, renew Moroccan Argan Oil
- Leave in Conditioners – This type of conditioner provides the same benefits as rinse outs with a few additional benefits: helps impart needed moisture to the hair strands and also provides your hair with a layer of antioxidant protection that can serve as a barrier between your hair and the sun’s UV rays. Recommended leave ins: Kinky Curly Knot Today, Karen’s Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia, Salerm 21, Eden’s Heart Oatmilk ‘n Honey Daily Conditioner
- Deep Conditioners – No matter what you use to protect your hair from environmental factors, your hair still needs additional therapy on a regular basis. It’s important to take the time to use a deep conditioner because it will help repair damage, strengthen the hair from within and impart moisture.. Recommended deep conditioners: Shea Moisture African Black Soap Purification Masque, Camille Rose Naturals Coconut Water Deep Penetrating Hair Treatment, Aubrey Organics GPB
It can not be overstated the importance of using all 3 types of conditioners. Summer can take a toll on your hair if you don’t properly protect it and treat it. In some cases, you can even use your rinse out as a leave in. The key is to keep your hair deeply conditioned and moisturized so that dryness and breakage can be kept at bay.
Are there any conditioners that you use specifically for summer hair care?
