: Hi,

: I open this thread to share our tricks to stay cool with long hair when temperatures rising.

: Where I live (Bordeaux in France) I suffer from extreme heat since June, it breaks all records! The city
: streets (with of course a lot of concrete!) becomes the hell on Earth with temperatures of 40 - 45C (104 - 113F) for several days. Luckily I live in the countryside which are cooler than the city, but I work in the city.

: Here is what I'm doing to avoid overheat:

: - No loose hair. It's the worst thing to do when temperatures are hot. Hair cover most of your head, and they are an insulation that prevents your head to evacuate heat.

: - Ponytail. I find that's not optimal because it covers the back of your head. Moreover, hair is in contact with sweat, which isn't good for hair.

: - Braid. Hair doesn't touch too much the back of your head, and it's thinner than a ponytail, so the back of your head can evacuate heat efficiently.

: - Bun. I think that's the best solution. Hair doesn't touch any part of your head except the scalp of course. But I never succeed to do a beautiful one.

: - Water spray can also help to chill you, but if hydrometry is high it's inefficient and even worse!

: If you have any tricks, share it!

I have thick hair and I believe heat is one reason I never grew my hair to terminal length. I find mid back is a good length for summer, but I tend to wear my hair at lower/back waist. I contemplate trimming to mid back length.
