Top Picks for Summer Hair Hydration & Revival

As the sun starts shining brighter and the temperatures rise, it’s time to show our hair some extra TLC during summer. The combination of heat, humidity and UV rays can take a toll on our locks, leaving them dry, frizzy and in need of some serious hydration.  

But don’t worry, with a few simple tips and tricks like a hydrating hair mask, you can keep your hair looking fabulous and healthy all summer long. Let’s take a look at how to hydrate hair and make sure your mane stays gorgeous, no matter how high the mercury climbs.

1. Summer-Friendly Shampoo & Conditioners 

Yes, we all know a shampoo cleans out all the build-up and grime while a conditioner softens the hair and at times moisturises it. But if we are to brave the strong Indian summers, we need a little extra help for hair hydration by tweaking our hair-washing combos like a hydrating shampoo for dry hair.

For Hydration

TRESemmé Moisture Boost with Hyaluronic Acid Shampoo & Conditioner is the best way on how to hydrate hair during the hot summers. To avoid turning your hair all dry and scraggy, you need to replenish moisture. And hyaluronic acid is a natural humectant which means it attracts moisture from wherever possible and binds it to your hair. It also has other moisturising ingredients like aloe vera and coconut oil while having no parabens so your hair is bound to stay healthy and soft

Dry Scalp

A handy ingredient for hydrating hair products that can do wonders is niacinamide aka vitamin B3. You must have heard of it being used for skincare, so why not give your scalp the same love? The Dove Hair Therapy Dry Scalp Care Shampoo and Conditioner uses this niacinamide to moisturise your scalp and keep it healthy which is needed to grow strong and healthy hair. So, if you tend to have a dry and itchy scalp, this is for you. And it is free of harsh chemicals like sulphates and parabens, so you are in safe hands.

To Repair

If your hair is damaged whether it is from chemical treatments or from a rough lifestyle, it can get worse during the summers. If you are from the coastal side, the humidity can turn your hair frizzy and if you live in drier interiors, well, your hair may get drier than a broom.  

But don’t worry, the Love Beauty & Planet Olive Oil & Peptide Bond Repair Shampoo & Conditioner is the defence you need. It not only protects your hair from further damage but also works to reverse it all while doing its best to hydrate your hair. And it’s done with a completely plant-based formula like olive oil to repair and strengthen each strand! 

2. Hair Masks

If you live in a hot and dry climate, hair masks are what you need for some extra pampering. A hydrating hair mask basically gives an extra boost of moisture. On top of that, some also work on a cellular level to reverse any damage. One such mask is the Dove 10 in 1 Deep Repair Treatment Hair Mask. It uses a high-tech formula like that of bio-protein fusion to reverse hair damage that may have occurred as far as 3 years ago. 

For those who love organic haircare, we have an alternative so you too can learn how to hydrate hair. Like the rest of the range, the Love Beauty & Planet Olive Oil & Peptide Bond Repair Hair Mask is free of harsh chemicals while using natural ingredients like olive oil. But don’t worry it also helps repair any damage that may have been done by strengthening the hair bonds that make up your hair. Just apply the mask to the length of your hair and wash it off after five minutes. 

3. Hair Serums

A hydrating hair serum is perfect for styling your hair before you head out as it adds a touch of shine and infuses moisture while coating your hair so most of the time it is protected from outside adversaries. Some also double up as heat protection so you don’t have to completely forego your straightener or blow dryer if you have dry hair. 

Frizzy Hair

Love Beauty & Planet Argan Oil & Lavender Hair Serum is the best one out there to get all that frizz under control. The best part is that it uses natural argan oil to manage your hair and lavender extracts for a soothing floral fragrance. And as usual, it is free of parabens while using eco-friendly packaging. 

Dry Hair

Like its shampoo and conditioner, the TRESemmé Moisture Boost Hair Serum with Hyaluronic Acid has the same hydrating formula that infuses moisture to bring life into dull and dry hair. It also helps detangle, tame flyaways and keep your hair silky smooth for 3 days straight. And don’t worry, it doesn’t weigh down your hair so you can style with ease while getting some much-needed hair hydration.

FAQs on Haircare in Summer

Q1. Is there sunscreen for hair? 

Yes, there are hair products specifically formulated with UV filters to protect your hair from sun damage. These products come in various forms such as sprays, creams and leave-in conditioners. Look for hair sunscreens that offer broad-spectrum protection and apply them before heading out into the sun. They help to shield your hair from the harmful effects of UV rays, such as dryness, brittleness and colour fading if you have dyed your hair. 

Q2. How frequently should I wash my hair during summer? 

The frequency of washing your hair during summer depends on various factors such as your hair type, activity level and exposure to sweat and environmental pollutants. Generally, a two- to three-day gap is a healthy balance. However, if you're swimming frequently, sweating a lot or exposing your hair to saltwater or chlorine, you may need to wash it more often to remove build-up and prevent damage.  

Q3. What is an easy hairstyle during summer? 

An easy but pretty hairstyle for summer is the classic bun or top knot. Simply gather your hair into a high ponytail, twist it around itself and secure it with a hair tie or bobby pins. This hairstyle keeps your hair off your face and neck, making it perfect for hot and humid days. You can also customise your bun by adding braids, twists or hair accessories for a unique look.
