Does summer make your hair dry and brittle? Does it fade your color and make your scalp uber oily?  Well, there are some rules about protecting your hair, especially in the summer, that you should definitely be following if you want your hair to look gorgeous and your color to stay vibrant.

I swear we are so high maintenance.  We can't even go swimming without worrying about effects on our hair but that's just how it is if you wanna take care of your hair and skin.   Not to mention the sweating and greasy scalp that comes from the really hot and humid days.  You want to shower every day and wash your hair, but that's not the best thing for it.  So what do you do? Well check out these rules!

Rule #4: TIE IT BACK
If you're going to be in a pool, around salt water, or around dirt and mud, tie your hair back.  It will keep it from getting dirty and tangled and you won't have to wash it excessively during the summer which causes it to dry out.  Consider using dry shampoo to help cut back on grease and oil so you can longer in between washes.
