4C Scalp Health Tips for Summer

Before diving into summer scalp care, let's understand the characteristics of 4C hair. 4C hair is tightly coiled with a zig-zag pattern, making it prone to dryness and breakage. It has a delicate structure that requires extra care and attention, especially during the summer months.

Summer Hair Care for Brittle Hair

One of the primary concerns for 4C hair in the summer is maintaining moisture levels. The heat, sun exposure, overwashing, and increased humidity can cause the hair to become dry and brittle. 

To combat this, focus on hydrating both your hair and scalp. Here are a few summer hair care tips for men and women with 4C hair:

  • Moisturize your hair regularly using the Stimulating Scalp and Hair Balm. It penetrates the hair shaft, replenishes moisture, and can hydrate and combat a dry scalp or dandruff

  • Apply the hydrating hair mist to add extra moisture and refresh your curls throughout the day. 
  • Drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated from within.
