Here, find our favorite summer hair care tips and products for healthy strands all season long.

Shampoo with Care

Wondering how to take care of hair in summer? Strong, healthy hair starts in the shower. Wash without worry thanks to our Brazilian Joia™ Strengthening + Smoothing Shampoo formulated with reparative, hydrating ingredients to keep your hair looking healthy, feeling soft and smelling amazing thanks to our irresistible Cheirosa ’62 fragrance.

Our sulfate-free shampoo effortlessly hydrates, allowing your hair to feel cleansed, but never stripped. Not to mention, the Brazilian Joia™ collection includes our patented and clinically proven SOL Seal Technology™ to repair and restore your hair’s peak strength. How? With plant-based keratin micro-capsules that ionically bond to split ends— and anywhere there’s damage. Think of it like a treatment hug for your hair.

Always Add Moisture

Saltwater, chlorine, and UV rays can zap away much-needed moisture your hair needs to thrive. Our conditioner and mask are some of the best products you can use for dry hair care in summer. Our new, buttery mask combines a medley of rich, nourishing butters (Cupuaçu, Murumuru, and Tucumã) and SOL Seal Technology™ to stop damage before it begins.

Debating whether to use a mask or conditioner? When considering how to take care of hair in summer at home, determine the dryness and thickness of your hair — fine hair types may prefer our Brazilian Joia™ Strengthening + Smoothing Conditioner, while those with curls, coils, extra-thick or long hair need extra hydration by way of our Triple Brazilian Butter™ Hair Repair Treatment. P.S. Both our mask and conditioner are formulated with SOL Seal Technology™ too!

Drink More Water

Your scalp needs body loving, just like the rest of your skin! If you’re not drinking enough water, you might notice unwanted flaking. Staying hydrated and using SOL hair care products will help keep your scalp and strands properly moisturized.

Protect Your Hair After Swimming

For your next beach or pool day, make room in your bag for our versatile Brazilian Joia(™) Milky Leave-In Conditioner. Not only will it keep your hair feeling soft and tangle-free in between swims, but UV-protectant properties will help prevent color fade, too. This lightweight conditioner works for summer care for hair at home, too. Spray it on to hydrate strands and fight frizz for up to 72 hours. Made for all hair types and textures, we’ve infused it with our SOL Seal Technology(™) to repair split ends and protect against heat damage

Comb Your Hair Gently

Some of our favorite summer elements – sun, salt water, wind, chlorine – can cause some not so favorable conditions to our hair including, dryness and knots. Avoid breakage and detangle hair gently with our SOL Yellow Wide Tooth Comb. Strong and stylish, it glides through fine, delicate strands as well as thicker, coiled hair textures too. When it comes to summer hair care for curly hair or thicker textures, always comb starting from the ends and work your way up to your roots.

Swap Your Tools For The Right Product

Summer is the perfect time to embrace your natural hair and put hair tools away. The sun can already turn healthy strands dry. Add a hot tool on top of that, and you’re more susceptible to breakage and color fade. The secret to fabulously air dried hair is the right products, and our Brazilian Glossy(™) Nourishing Hair Oil is the one that does it all, including fight frizz for up to 72 hours, add mirror-like shine, repair damage and deeply moisturize thirsty strands. You’ll leave the house with healthy, heat-free hair that sways, bounces and moves naturally (in Brazil, we call this Ginga).
