Yesterday I shared some tips on how to cycle and stay fresh in the summer. Although I swear by all of them, there is one issue I struggle with the most in handling the heat, my hair. I have long, thick and heavy brunette hair. It keeps my head warm during winter and overheats me during summer.
I love to wear my hair down but during the warmest seasons, I just cannot. I won't even bother wearing a helmet! One way I have dealt with this (while not wearing a helmet by choice) is by wearing it up, be it a messy or stylish bun, braids, pony tail you name it, I'm throwing my hair up when it's sizzling outside. It keeps me cool and still looking good on my bike.
I'm a huge fan of up-do's during summer and probably have almost tried all of these styles. What are some hair tricks you use during the summer to beat the heat?
