After trying to tame our hair for all these years, we know one thing for sure — it has a mind of its own. There are (rare) days when your hair looks luscious and bouncy and then there are days when your hair looks super dry and dull… sigh. While it’s vital to follow a hair care routine to maintain the health of your hair, it’s also necessary to switch your products based on the season. Why? Because weather change can wreak havoc on our hair if not treated properly.
Ahead, the perfect hair care routine to follow this summer:
- Start with a gentle shampoo
- Apply conditioner from the mid-lengths to the tips
- Use a leave-in conditioner
- Spritz on a heat protection spray
- Treat your hair to regular oil massages
Start with a gentle shampoo
We get it, you want to use a deep cleansing shampoo that will help get rid of the icky and greasy feeling in your scalp. But do you realise this harsh shampoo also robs moisture from your tresses making it look dry and lacklustre? Thus, it’s necessary to use a gentle shampoo with atleast one moisturising ingredient like the Love Beauty & Planet Coconut Water and Mimosa Flower Aroma Volume and Bounty Shampoo. This volumising shampoo helps replenish and hydrate hair leaving it voluminous, soft and gorgeously glossy without weighing it down.
Apply conditioner from the mid-lengths to the tips
If you think conditioner makes your hair greasy in summer then sorry to break it to you, but you’re using it wrong. Applying conditioner to the scalp will only make your roots oilier than they naturally are. Thus, conditioner should only be applied from the mid-length to the tips of the hair to moisturise them. A detoxifying conditioner like the Love Beauty & Planet Radical Refresher Conditioner with Tea Tree and Vetiver Aroma will instantly refresh and add volume to your hair.
Use a leave-in conditioner
The rays of the sun are particularly damaging during summer. It steals moisture off your hair and makes it look fried and dull. Applying a few drops of a leave-in conditioner along the lengths of your hair will keep it protected. The TIGI Bed Head Ego Boost Leave-in Conditioner and Split End Mender will make your hair soft and add a natural shine.
Spritz on a heat protection spray
Other than applying a leave-in conditioner to keep the moisture intact, spritzing on a protective layer of heat protection spray will further protect your hair from the damaging rays of the sun. Spritz the Tresemme Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray before stepping out of the house to keep your locks protected.
Treat your hair to regular oil massages
The frequency of oil massages depends on your scalp type. If you have a naturally oily scalp, treat it to an oil massage every 15 days. Whereas, those with dry scalps should indulge in hot oil treatments once a week. The Clinic Plus Nourishing Hair Oil strengthens and nourishes the hair to make it soft and shiny.
