When it comes to summertime beauty, you're all about protecting your skin. You already know that too much time in the sun can be harmful to your complexion. You've heard about the dangers and have been taught to limit your exposure to the sun. But there are some bad summer habits that can ruin your hair that you may not even be aware of.
Believe it or not, swimming, sunbathing, and even wearing a ponytail can do some pretty major damage to your hair. But things like wearing a protective hat and thoroughly washing your hair after a swim can help prevent some of the dryness and discoloration that can make your locks look less than perfect.
Your summer social calendar is probably already filling up, and the last thing in the world you want is to have to run from the camera in fear every time someone wants to post a pic to Instagram. But if you stay away from some of these bad summer hair habits, you can keep your hair healthy and looking great all summer long. And that's enough to get you a picture that's worthy of becoming the new profile pic — at least for a few months.
