Summer is the perfect time to go out and have fun under the sun. You want to feel confident and free, so nothing will stop you from all the great things that await you. The hair plays a major role on your overall look. The right style and color will improve your appearance a lot. However, hair tends to get easily dry during summer season because of the hot weather. If you want to keep your hair healthy and beautiful this summer, here are some tips on how to do this.
Use Conditioner or Natural Products
Shampoo removes the oily look on your hair. However, since it’s summer, the natural oil that’s being released on your hair can prevent it from getting dry. Instead of shampooing everyday, do this less often. You may use conditioner to keep your hair clean and smelling nice. There are hair care products that contain specific ingredients that may not be good for your hair. It’s best to use natural hair care products as much as you can as the hair is more sensitive during hot season. There are also hair products that were designed to protect the hair from sun damage. Use trusted brands to make sure that they will work as promised. Invest in a hair conditioner that contains sunscreen. This will prevent your hair from harmful UV rays of the sun
Wash Hair Before and After Swimming
Chlorine from swimming pool and salt water from the beach can easily damage hair. To prevent this from happening, wash your hair with tap water before swimming. This will fill the open shafts on your hair instead of the water on the pool or beach filling it that can cause the damage. Wash hair thoroughly and use conditioner to make your hair softer after a day in the pool or beach.
Style with Care
As mentioned, stay away from hair products with chemical ingredients that may damage your hair, that’s including the styling products that you use. Since the temperature is hot, avoid using hair styling tools that use heat like irons and blow dryers. If you want to use bands to put your hair together, use those that are covered with cloth to prevent hair breakage.
Cover your Hair
Before going out, make sure to cover your hair with a scarf/Cap to protect it from pollution and dust. This will prevent your hair from harmful UV rays of the sun, heat, dehydration, dust & sand
Get your hair trimmed every six to eight weeks. This will help your hair grow faster and also prevent it from drying out during the summer. Cutting off dry & split ends always glamourize your hair
The sweltering summer heat can cause your hair to become lifeless. It is therefore recommended for you to massage your hair with oil at least once a week. This not only keeps the hair in good health but also helps retain its moisture balance. The oils of Aloe, Almond, Olive and Coconut are best for massaging you. Massage warm oil into the dry hair & leave up to 30-40 minutes. Wash as usual. Do not rub oil into your scalp to prevent greasiness.
Drink plenty of liquids to keep roots and strands flush with fluids. Water will also keep your skin soft. Water is always the best choice for your tresses. Drink plenty of water. Water not only hydrates your body, it helps give you healthy, shiny hair. Summer hair care can be easy if you maintain it.
Stay sexy during the summer!
