The day is not far when stylish summer clothes and taking ‘sunkissed’ pictures but with summer comes lots of hair-related issues where you can have a few ‘bad hair days.’ Extreme hot and humid climate harms our hair, making it frizzy, and dry. Here are five essential tips which can help to keep your hair healthy and shiny during summer.
Cover Your Hair
Sun emits more UV (Ultra Violet) light during summer which is harmful to both our skin and hair. For skin, you can apply sunscreen and to save your hair from these harmful UV rays, wear a comfortable hat or scarf to cover your hair. If you are a girl then you can tie your hair in such a way that a scarf or hat will cover it nicely and won’t let UV rays reach your hair especially when you are riding a scooter or bike. Along with protecting your hair from UV rays, it also retains moisture in your hair. It also saves your hair from humid wind, especially if your hair is coloured and prone to tangling. Also using a leave-in conditioner with SPF will protect your hair from harmful rays.
Deep Conditioning Hair Treatment
Your hair mostly becomes frizzy and dry due to summer heat, and in such a weather a leave-in conditioner with SPF can protect your hair from harmful rays. You can also go for a deep conditioning treatment per week. It’s done by creating a hair mask which you can make at home also by using natural ingredients such as shea butter, coconut oil and honey, that will keep your hair nourished and hydrated. You can even visit a salon where they provide deep conditioning hair treatment that makes your hair shiny and less dry.
This one is especially for girls where they can trim their hair because it leads to less or almost no split ends. Trimmed hair is in vogue nowadays and in summers you should definitely try it. Hair always grows fast during summers because most strands are in the anagen or growth phase, so there is no need to worry at all, and who knows your newly trimmed hair might look more cool and stylish.
Try to avoid Heat Styling Tools
In summer, the humid and hot climate might make your hair more susceptible to various harms if you regularly use heat-styling tools such as flat irons, blow dryers, and curling irons. In summer, you should not use these heat-style tools and air-dry your hair or use a diffuser from drying the hair. In the summertime, heat styling tools may cause more harm than benefit so better to avoid them. Also don’t use heavy shampoos with many chemicals, instead use mild shampoos which won’t cause harm to your hair and give your hair a shiny look.
Don’t Use Shampoo Everyday
We all are aware that summer causes heat and humidity that tempts you to wash your hair quite often but you should know that using shampoo every day is not good for your hair as it may dry out your hair further by stripping off the natural oils of your scalp. You can use shampoo once in three days or you can wash your hair with conditioning cleansers 2-3 times a week.
