Your go-to Summer Styling and Maintenance Tips from Number 4
The best advice we can give you is to start by using botanical hair care products that protect your hair from the sun and nourish it with vitamins and antioxidants.
Moisturize Hair Regularly
With the sun beating down on your hair, it’s important to keep it hydrated. The summer rays can dry out your hair and scalp, leading to breakage and split ends. To avoid this, be sure to moisturize your hair regularly. Use a leave-in conditioner, hair oil or nourishing serum to lock in moisture and prevent breakage. This simple step will keep your hair looking healthy and shiny all summer long.
Which Number 4 products are best for adding moisture to the hair?
Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect and Number 4 Hydrating Shampoo and Condition are excellent products for adding moisture to the hair. Part of our Hydrate Collection, they nourish and protect for a soft, healthy-looking finish.
Use a Heat Protectant
Whether you’re using a blow dryer, flat iron, or curling wand, heat styling can damage your hair. To prevent this, use a heat protectant before styling. This will help to shield your hair from the heat and keep it from becoming brittle and breaking. A heat protectant can also help your style last longer, which is perfect for those long summer days and nights.

Protect Your Hair from Chlorine Damage
Trips to the pool or the beach are a great way to cool off in the summer heat. However, the chlorine in the water can damage your hair.
Top tip! To protect your hair from chlorine damage, wet your hair before you go for a swim. This will help to prevent it from absorbing the chlorine.
After your swim, be sure to rinse your hair thoroughly with clean water, and use N4 Clarifying Shampoo. It comes in 4 different sizes. A vacation-friendly mini 1.5oz through to a super-sized 64oz which you can decant into your mini for when you jetaway.
This weekly deep cleansing, therapeutic shampoo doesn’t strip moisture of color but it does reduce the impact of repeated exposure to chlorine. Let’s face it, splashing about in the pool is a vacay must-have, but chlorine tinged strands are best avoided dah-ling!
Avoid Over-Washing Your Hair
While it’s important to keep your hair clean, over-washing can actually harm your hair. Some shampoos can strip the hair of its natural oils, making it more susceptible to breakage.
Try to limit your shampooing to once or twice a week, depending on your hair type. Check out all the N4 range of shampoos HERE.
Keep Your Hair Protected from the Sun
While the sun is a great source of vitamin D, it can also damage your hair. The UV rays can bleach your hair, making it brittle and prone to breakage.
To protect your hair from the sun, wear a hat or a scarf when you’re outside. You can also use products from the N4 range that contain UV filters to shield your hair from the sun’s rays.
Summer can be a challenging time for your hair, but with the right healthy hair habits and techniques, you can keep it looking beautiful. Remember to moisturize your hair regularly, use a heat protectant when styling, and protect your hair from chlorine damage and the sun’s UV rays. By following these tips, you can enjoy the summer without worrying about damaging your hair.
