3 Tips For A Quick Summer Wash Day Routine

Natural Hair Shampoo for Summer

The summer sun is finally here which means it’s time to start changing our wash day routines. This may include using lighter products, skipping steps you may have added during the colder months to give your hair that added bit of extra moisture, or just creating a quicker routine so you can spend more time enjoying the warm weather. Along with our 3 tips, our natural, plant-powered product range is a great start for creating a quick, easy and healthy wash day routine. 

Tip 1: Pre-poo the night before

Pre-pooing the night before can cut wash day in half as your best oils get to work by infusing your strands while you sleep. This is one easy hair hack you can do as you don’t have to wait around on wash day for your oils to work. This effective step will prevent your hair from becoming stripped, add more moisture to your tresses and will help with the detangling process. Have you used our African Citrus Superfruit Hair Oil yet? It has 10+ potent plant oils that nourish split ends, minimises frizz and provides protection from the sun and repair damaged hair all while adding a healthy shine to your curls.

Tip 2: Use a moisturising and hydrating shampoo or co-wash

The idea of a quick wash day is to have our products do all the work for us, that way we don't have to do any extra steps to add moisture back into our hair. As heat can be drying on our tresses, it is a great idea to use a sulphate-free shampoo that is moisturising and gives energy back to your dry curls in this summer heat. Something like our African Citrus Bloom Superfruit Shampoo will do the trick. Removing product build up, it is made without silicones or sulfates and restores the balance of the scalp, all without striping our strands.

Finding the right co-wash to cleanse your hair can cut out the idea of using a conditioner afterwards. This can be used on your main wash day or as part of your midweek wash to refresh your curls with a conditioner-based cleanser.

Tip 3: Hot oil and deep condition at the same time

This is a big life saver for anyone who has a limited amount of time on wash day. Whether sitting under a heat cap, hooded steamer or sitting in the sunshine, hot oiling and deep conditioning will not only bring back any moisture lost from shampooing, but will also make your hair shiner, less dense, stronger and improve the overall health of your hair while the oil will deeply condition your scalp.
