While it’s time to bring out your cute, strappy dresses and head for regular dips in the pool; summer has its flip-side too. The harsh sun rays and excessive sweating can bring your hair game down, and how!

Did you know? Regular sun exposure can cause dry and brittle hair, split ends, lack of shine, hair fall and also fade your hair colour. Frustrating, isn’t it? It is, therefore, important to give some extra TLC to your mane in the hotter months. To prevent damage, here’s how you need to care for your hair to keep it soft, shiny, healthy and bouncy all through the season...

Clean your hair twice a week
 

Clean your hair twice a week

Dirty and greasy hair can wreak a havoc in summers. The sun, sweat and pollution can ruin the texture of your hair beyond your imagination. Therefore, we suggest you shampoo your hair twice a week using the Dove Environmental Defence Shampoo and follow it up with the Dove Environmental Defence Conditioner. However, keep in mind that over-washing can dry your hair out. So, avoid that!

Say no to heat-styling tools

While you may be tempted to use your curling irons and straighteners; take a break from them, especially in the humid months. We understand that styling your hair will simply save your day, but the heat from those styling tools have the power to suck out moisture from your hair, leaving it limp and dry. You don’t want more damage, do you?
