Summer is just around the corner and obviously all of us are banking on our scarves and bandanas to cover our hair but the sun is mightier than that! Just as it can damage your skin, the sun can also damage hair and scalp.
Which is why it is important that you practice a little more TLC when it comes to summer hair care. Follow these simple tips and tricks to flaunt healthy hair all through the season...
- Make conditioner your BFF
- Care for your colour
- UV protect your hair
- Cover your strands
- Drink lots of fluids
Make conditioner your BFF
The summer is extremely drying and tends to zap away moisture from the strands. This is why it is important to use a conditioner to help restore the lost moisture and life back into your hair. If you are going for a swim, remember to put on a leave-in conditioner on your hair and wear a swimming cap.
Care for your colour
Coloured hair demands for extra caring and pampering in the summer months. Hair sustains maximum damage with chemical treatments leading to color fading and excessive hair dryness. This is why select hair care products that are specially crafted for colour or chemical treated hair.
UV protect your hair
When caring for your hair in the summer, pick shampoos, conditioners and serums that contain UV protection. A quick tip to sun protect your hair is to lightly run your fingers through your hair after applying sunscreen to your face and body.
Cover your strands
Each time you step out in the sun, cover your hair using a scarf or a hot. This helps provide extra UV protection and also prevents moisture loss from the scalp. Hats and scarves can reduce the damage caused by wind, especially if your hair is prone to tangling, and protects colour-treated hair.
Drink lots of fluids
A great way to keep your hair and scalp hydrated all through the summer is to drink as much fluids as you can. Not drinking enough water immensely dehydrates your scalp and makes your hair extremely dry, brittle and prone to breakage.
