Like everything else in the world. Some people care and some don't care about their hair. Some never have to deal with it. Maybe because they don't have enough or have too much and don't know what to do with it.
We live in the hottest driest place on earth. Life is EXTREME.
Some people are obsessed with it. Sometimes people lose it more because of stress or illness. Some people are absolutely nuts, crazy, like over the rainbow nuts.
Most likely your somewhere in the middle. Let's hope.
I personally think it should be illegal to produce heat in any way in your home or outside during the Phoenix summer. Think about it. We heat our bathrooms with a hot shower. Then blow our hair with a hot blow dryer. Then turn on a iron be it straight or curling. It's all hot. Then we are off to work or school leaving our hot steamy bathroom for our overworked AC unit to hopefully cool it off before we get home. Think about the energy and cost. Think about it.
Here are a few tips to keeping your locks healthy in the summer heat and the whole year through.
Stay inside in the middle of the day. If you do go out, wear a hat. It will keep your whole body cooler.
Rinse your hair and body with the hose if you can before you hop into your pool to It helps even the porosity of your hair.
When my hair was long I always had conditioner near the pool and used it all day long.
Comb your conditioner through, It will help you in the long run.
Clarify your hair when you need it. If you swim a lot, do it every day. Clarifying also allows your conditioner to penetrate the way it should. Deep.
Stick to products that don't build up and are made for dry climates.
If you; Ride a motorcycle. Drive a convertible. Race dirt bikes. Swim a lot or anything fun and exciting your hair will live with you and suffer the consequence. But living is fun and we can't let our hair dictate our lives.
Tie it up, and put it away but it's always there. The pull and tug. The knots. The weight on my shoulders. The Tickling of my nose as I sleep or ride my bike. Or driving the car with my windows open. Or wailing on an electric guitar. The shower drain.
The worst was finding it in my tooth brush.
It comes and it goes. It's cut and it grows. What some do with it nobody knows what they are thinking but who are we to decide. Have you looked in the mirror or pictures of yourselves?
That's what sold me. I saw a photo of myself taken from someone else's point of view. I said, Damn! You need a makeover. I couldn't have done it alone. If its not a full makeover you want, remember to get those dry ends trimmed more often during the damaging summer heat.
I am so happy I cut my hair. I forgot what summer was like without a ponytail.
One good haircut goes a long way.
