Summer is soon going to knock on our doors and it will bring a guest along – sweat. While it is essential to the body’s healthy functioning, excessive sweating can leave you feeling uncomfortable and smelly. Especially, a sweaty scalp which not only feels icky but is also one of summers greatest hair woes. Whether you face this problem in summer or all through the year, these tricks mentioned below will ensure your scalp remains fresh and dry.
Wash every alternate day
Wash your hair more frequently in summer to get rid of dirt and sweat build up on the scalp. Use a refreshing formula to wash your hair such as the Pure Derm Mint Cool Anti - Dandruff Shampoo which is specially formulated for oil/greasy scalp. It also prevents dry and itchy scalp so your hair feels clean and fresh for a long time.
Chop it short
Summer is the best time to experiment with a short haircut. Chopping them off will allow your hair to get better ventilation and keep your scalp and dry and cool.
As much as possible avoid using heat styling tools such as blow dryers and flat irons in summer. The heat emitted from these tools adds more heat to the scalp producing oil and making your scalp sweat excessively.
Excessive grease and sweat can be curbed using some DIY masks. A concoction of three tablespoons of lemon juice with two tablespoons of coconut water can do wonders. Massage it in your scalp, let stay for 15 minutes and wash off with lukewarm water.
Add few drops of peppermint
Peppermint contains anti-bacterial properties and keeps the scalp fresh. Adding a few drops of peppermint essential oil to your shampoo or oil will keep greasy and itchy scalp at bay.
