Summer is a great time to enjoy the outdoors, but it can also be a challenging time for your hair. The hot and humid weather can cause your hair to become dry, frizzy, and difficult to manage. In this blog, we will explore some hair care tips to help you keep your hair healthy and beautiful during the summer months.
1) Hydrate Your Hair
One of the most important things you can do for your hair in summer is to keep it hydrated and moisturised. The hot weather and sun exposure can cause your hair to become dry and brittle, which can lead to breakage and split ends. This hastens hair loss and hair fall. To keep your hair hydrated, use a herbal shampoo that is gentle for your hair type. Also ensure that you drink adequate water and eat a good, healthy diet - which is rich in micronutrients.
2) Protect Your Hair from the Sun
Just like your skin, your hair can be damaged by the sun's UV rays. To protect your hair from sun damage, wear a hat or a scarf when you are outside. You can also use an ayurvedic hair oil for weekly hair massage to ensure adequate hair nourishment. Keeping your hair covered is also a good way to reduce the risk of sunstroke and tan.
3) Avoid Hot Tools
During summer, it's a good idea to avoid using hot tools on your hair, such as flat irons and curling irons. The heat from these tools can cause your hair to become dry and brittle, which can lead to breakage and split ends. Choose hair cuts that are easy to maintain and do not need chemical treatments.
4) Use a Wide-Tooth Comb
When your hair is wet, it is more vulnerable to breakage. To prevent breakage, use a wide-tooth comb to detangle your hair instead of a brush. A wide-tooth comb will be more gentle on your hair and will help to prevent damage. Weak hair leads to hair loss, hair thinning and hair fall. Try and avoid friction that will weaken the hair.
5) Rinse Your Hair After Swimming
Chlorine and saltwater can be very damaging to your hair. To prevent damage, rinse your hair with fresh water after swimming in the pool. You can also use a mild and sulphate free shampoo once or twice a week to remove any buildup that may have accumulated in your hair.
In conclusion, taking care of your hair during summer is essential to keep it healthy and beautiful. By keeping your hair hydrated, protecting it from the sun, avoiding hot tools, using a wide-tooth comb, and rinsing your hair after swimming, you can keep your hair looking great all summer long. By following these tips, you can enjoy the season without worrying about your hair.
