Summertime is not just harsh and damaging for your skin alone; it can be trying for your hair as well. The rise in humidity levels, coupled with the harsh UV rays and inadequate sun protection, can all leave your hair dull and lifeless.
Even though this seems like a major problem, it can easily be prevented by regularly using a conditioner after each hair wash. But, instead of picking just about any conditioner, we urge you to use one with nourishing, moisturising and repairing ingredients for better results. Scroll down for a list of our favourite conditioner ingredients (along with our top conditioner picks, of course!) that will keep your hair soft, supple and problem-free throughout the summer.
01. Coconut water
Coconut water may not be as commonly used as coconut oil in hair care, but it is an excellent ingredient to add to your summer hair care routine. Not only does it help in reducing frizz and smoothening out the hair, but it also does an excellent job of adding bounce and volume to your strands without weighing them down.
BB picks: Sunsilk Coconut Water & Aloe Vera Volume Hair Conditioner
Exposure to pollution, sweat and sun can leave your hair dull and damaged. But one ingredient that can help in repairing your hair and repairing damage is ginseng. Not only does this ingredient help in strengthening the strands to prevent breakage, but it also refreshes dull-looking strands to make them look healthier.
BB picks: Tresemme Botanique Detox & Restore Conditioner
03. Oat milk
Brimming with omega-6 fatty acids and vitamin B, oat milk is an excellent ingredient to add to your summer hair care routine. Oat milk’s ultra-calming and conditioning properties help smooth out frizz while leaving your hair super soft, supple and nourished. Additionally, oat milk is a really effective natural ingredient to repair the damage, strengthen hair and reduce frizz.
BB picks: Dove Healthy Ritual For Strengthening Hair Conditioner
Honey is one of the most loved haircare ingredients ever. Apart from the intense hydrating and softening benefits that honey provides, it also minimises frizz and adds an enviable shine. Rich in antioxidants, this ingredient also protects your hair against environmental damage to keep it looking healthy and nourished.
BB picks: Sunsilk Almond & Honey Conditioner
If you are prone to dandruff in the summers, we suggest you include menthol-based hair care products in your routine ASAP. Menthol helps in keeping dandruff in check by cleansing your scalp thoroughly. Additionally, the cooling properties help calm severely dry, chemically processed and heat damaged hair and keep them super soft, supple and clean.
