While pool time and beach vacays during summer are all fun and games; it’s your hair that cannot stand the heat. Precisely why, it’s important to switch your hair care routine for luscious and smooth mane all through summer.
The biggest hair concern most women face in the scorching summers is nothing but frizz. The heat and pollution together can dry out your strands, thereby making your mane weak, dull and dehydrated. This however, does not mean you have to sport a ponytail all summer. With a little extra care, love and effort, your locks can look as clean and healthy as they do on their best days.
Here are a few remedies that’ll help you flaunt frizz-free mane all through summer...
- Use a moisturising shampoo
- Pat your hair dry
- Coat damp hair with serum
- Say no to heat-styling tools
- Treat your hair overnight
Use a moisturising shampoo
Dry hair is most prone to frizz. Precisely why, it’s important to keep your locks nourished and moisturised all through the season. This prevents hair strands from getting too thirsty. We suggest you get your hands on the Dove Dryness Care Shampoo and follow it up with the Dove Dryness Care Conditioner as it promises to repair hair damage and leaves you with shiny, frizz-free mane.
However, remember that over-washing can strip your hair of its natural oils leaving it more susceptible to frizz. Wash it 2-3 times a week to keep it healthy.
Pat your hair dry
Avoid using a towel to dry your hair because towels tend to cause frizz. Instead, use a cotton T-shirt or a lint-free towel to gently squeeze out excess water from your hair and pat it dry to prevent outer hair cuticles from getting frizzy.
Coat damp hair with serum
Once you’re out of the shower, apply serum on damp hair and run a wide-tooth comb through it. Doing so will detangle your hair and reduce frizz. Remember that the best time to comb your hair is when it is damp. Once your hair is dry, you can reach out for a soft brush or just use your fingers to smoothen your hair.
Say no to heat-styling tools
Blow-dryers and other heat-styling tools are not your hair’s best friend in summer. You don’t want your hair becoming any dryer, do you? Therefore, allow your hair to air-dry as it’ll keep the moisture locked in and your tresses frizz-free.
Treat your hair overnight
Infuse your hair with extra moisture and let it work overnight. Apply either a styling cream or hair oil and tie your hair in a bun before hitting the bed. Shampoo in the morning and you’ll find your hair to be much softer and smoother.
