As soon as summer approaches, many hair and skincare issues welcome you. Dry, fragile, lusterless hair that are more prone to breakage and develop split ends and dandruff are some of the conditions that give you sleepless nights. But these issues must not deter you from drawing pleasure of the summer. Let’s discuss five common summer hair issues and ways to fix them effectively:
Dry and Scorched Hair
The hot summer days work havoc on your mane leaving it dry, brittle and lackluster. Not only the strands, the sweltering heat causes your scalp as well to dry out which ultimately give way to scalp boils and even hair fall.
To avoid these conditions, give your hair oil massage on regular basis. Rinse your hair twice using a gentle shampoo and never forget to offer your hair enough protection from the blazing sun and other harmful environmental factors before hitting outdoors.
Before exposing your hair to heat, use sunscreen or a leave-in conditioner with SPF or get your tresses into a brimmed hat to protect your hair.
Frizzy and dehydrated hair is another common condition people complain about during summer. This is because of high level of air humidity. The cuticles suck up the moisture from air and puff up leading to frizzy hair.
If you’re hair has turned frizzy and you want to tame it effectively, channel your regular shampoo and conditioner and switch to hydrated, rich one. Moreover, put the dryer down and let your hair air dry after washing. Also invest in a quality anti-frizz product to tame the frizzy hair.
While swimming can offer you relief from excessive incalescence during the summer season but it subjects your hair to adverse chlorine damage at the same time.
To keep the metals present in the pool water which tend to give your hair a greenish look from inflicting damage on your face, don’t forget wearing a swimming cap before jumping into the pool. Rinse off the hair immediately after step put of pool. Massaging the hair with a solution of baking-soda and water before washing can help you retain the natural color of your hair.
The heat of the sun together with hat styling and blow drying often results in brittle hair that is more likely to split at the ends.
When it comes to mend the split ends, hair experts and dermatologists recommend you to use as less shampoo as possible. This way, natural oils of your hair will be retained ensuring the health of your mane. Moreover, trim your hair regularly every 4-6 weeks throughout the summer and never forgo a deep conditioning treatment once or twice a week. They will give your hair much-needed nourishment plus prevent split ends.
The harsh climate, sweating along with excessive sun exposure lead to dandruff which’s a menace itself.
To avoid scaly scalp it’s vital to keep the hair and scalp clean. Usually shampooing your hair at least two times a week is considered enough for keeping the hair clean, but if you get dandruff, it’s suggested to shampoo your hair on daily basis.
