There is truly not a better feeling in Cape Town than when you feel the seasons change, preparing the world for summer. The beautiful sunsets, longer days and getting ready for all the fun activities and destinations the mother city has to offer. However, changing seasons also means changing hair routines, and we are here to help you with that.
Why should you change your hair routine for summer?
In summer, the humidity levels are much higher and therefore, your hair naturally retains more moisture, which can weigh your hair down. In addition, we get more exposure to UV as the weather is much better in summer and we spend more time outside, which can get damaged. Furthermore, the wind is known to make hair frizzier as well as dehydrated. Therefore, if you live in Cape Town, it is vital to change your hair routine as the weather changes.
Changes that need to be made for your summer hair routine
- Hair Cut or Trim – Getting rid of those dry winter ends is essential for you to start your healthy hair journey for summer. Everyone gets dead ends, but if you do not maintain it or go for a cut every two to three months, it can cause a lot of damage to your hair and make your hair look lifeless.
- Treatments – Everyone deserves a treat every now and then and so does your hair. Your hair goes through a lot every single day. Therefore, with summer creeping up, you need to strengthen your hair to prevent damage due to the weather.

- Food – We all know food plays a huge role in our health, including your hair. This is something that a lot of people forget. Your hair needs certain vitamins and nutrients to reach optimal health and to be ready for summer. A great tip to ensure you get the food in your body that your hair needs are to ensure you always have snacks around that contains these nutrients. Snacks you might want to look at include melons, grapes, nuts, strawberries, and whole grains, just to name a few.
