If you thought winter is the only season that causes frizz and hair fall, you should know that summer is a lot harsher on your locks. The high humidity levels, combined with sun exposure, damage your hair’s protective layer, making it prone to damage and hair fall. The harsh rays of the sun can zap the moisture out of your locks, leaving them dry, brittle and lifeless.
But fret not; we’re here to help. We’ve got some pro hair care tips up our sleeves that will completely transform your hair game this summer. Scroll down to find out what they are.
- Shampoo with care
- Don’t skip conditioner
- Cover your tresses
- Drink plenty of fluids
- Opt for comfortable hairstyles
Shampoo with care
Excessive sweating is common during summer; this can make your scalp greasy and sticky. Washing hair frequently may seem like the only solution. But frequent hair wash can do more harm than good for your hair. This can also lead to breakage and hair fall during summer. The key is to use a mild shampoo that also prevents hair fall. The Dove Hair Fall Rescue Shampoo is specially formulated for weak hair that’s prone to hair fall. This gentle formula is suitable for daily use and fortifies strands to reduce hair fall considerably.
Don’t skip conditioner
If you think conditioners are a winter staple, you are wrong. Did you know just three days of sun exposure can damage the hair shaft? The sun is harsher during summer, which means your hair can get damaged easily. Using a conditioner will hydrate your hair and form a protective layer and prevent it from damage. We recommend using the Dove Hair Fall Rescue Conditioner to hydrate weak hair that’s prone to hair fall. It deeply nourishes hair from root to tip and makes hair visibly fuller.
Cover your tresses
To keep frizz and damage at bay, it is essential to protect your hair whenever possible. Wear a scarf or hat while stepping out during summer — this will provide UV protection and help retain moisture in the scalp. If your hair is colour treated, this little tip will protect your hair colour from fading/changing during summer.
Drink plenty of fluids
Summer can be pretty dehydrating. It is necessary to keep your body hydrated internally and externally to guard your hair against the sun. Applying conditioners and other moisturising hair care products won’t help unless your body is hydrated from within. Therefore, drink plenty of fluids and consume water-rich foods like cucumber, tomatoes, spinach, broccoli, etc.
Opt for comfortable hairstyles
Tight buns and ponytails may seem like the best summer hairstyles to keep hair away from the face and neck. Sadly, tight hairstyles can put pressure on the roots and cause damage, especially if you have dry hair. A messy braid or low ponytail is the best hairstyle for summer as they reduce frizz and don’t put pressure on the roots.
