Deep cleansing is non-negotiable
Whether you have super oily scalp and hair or not, deep cleansing and detoxifying your hair is a must. Sweat, dirt and grime settle in the hair making it icky and heavy. Wash your hair with a detoxifying shampoo such as TRESemmé Botanique Detox & Restore Shampoo to get all the dirt and summer build-up off your scalp.
Do some damage (read frizz) control
Summer means humidity and humidity means frizz. Tame your tresses by never skipping on a conditioner after hair wash. Apply a hair serum or a leave-in conditioner to keep your hair smooth. Also, don’t wash your hair too often as this will strip your hair of its natural oils and make it frizzier.
Protect your locks from heat
Even a few minutes out in the summer sun can make your hair dull and dry. Well, prevention is better than cure. Wrap your hair and cover it with a hat or scarf when going out. Minimise the use of heat styling tools and pamper your hair with a nourishing and moisturising hair mask every week to retain the lost moisture in your tresses.
Treat your scalp with an oil massage
A hot oil massage every week will deep cleanse your scalp and ensure your mane is healthy and nourished from root to tip. Heat any hair oil or mix two-three oils and massage your scalp for 10-15 minutes. Do this every week before a hair wash.
