Summer is the perfect time for protective hairstyles. Natural braids styles and braids with extensions are the most common styles during the summer months. After leaving the stylist, many clients don’t have clear understanding on how to maintain the health of their hair while their hair is in a protective style for the summer. Here are 4 best practice tips that will keep your hair healthy this summer:
Tip #1: Keep your extension in your hair for only 4-6 weeks.
We know that clients put extension in their hair for time sake. We know that they are called extension but, don’t extend the life of your extension longer than the recommended time frame. If you keep your extension longer than the recommended time frame, you put your hair at risk for shedding, dryness, and breakage.
Here at Art Tech Studio, we are all about healthy hair. Here are 10 tips to add to your hair care routine:
Shampooing to often cause dryness. Instead, shampoo hair minimum of every 3 days.
The curlier the hair, the longer it takes for natural oils to travel, so always condition.
Excess heat alters the proteins that give curls their spiral shape, so reduce your heat when using a flat iron (ideal heat 250 degrees, 275 degrees, being the most)
What you eat matters a lot to the health of your hair. Starvation or fad diets will leave a mark on your hair making it thin and weak. You should try eating nuts, fruits, vegetables and seeds.
Comb gently with a comb that has wide teeth to detangle hair.
Get your hair trimmed every 8 weeks
Don’t blow dry without a diffuser
Have your stylist recommended shampoo and conditioner designed for your hair type.
Avoid excessive use of hair products.
We all know that with summer, excessive sweating comes with it. Professional shampoos and conditioners are a key to keeping our hair healthy and happy. When our body needs water, our hair need moisture. The Hair Elements Upscale Exclusive System is ideal for at home care to keep your hair in the best shape for this summer season. The Hair Elements Upscale Exclusive System feature the following products:
Entitled for its innermost hydration, this moisturizing shampoo detangles and conditions. Panthenol delivers shine while (ionic) hydrolyzed wheat proteins rebuild damaged areas of the cuticle layer.

You deserve to take care of you. You have the right to self-love. You can achieve this by reclaiming your time and give yourself permission to self-care. It may be hard to give up control of your personal responsibilities but, it’s better to lose control of your responsibilities than to lose control of your peace of mind.
We often look for the perfect time to consider if we are worthy enough to enjoy our time. Instead of looking for the perfect time, we should look for the perfect opportunity. Opportunities come a dime a dozen. They are not often planned but, they always find a way to show up in our lives. The only requirement is to be prepared for the unexpected; which shouldn’t be a problem because our lives are filled with them.
