Summers are like autumns for hairs. If you don’t take proper care of them, they get weak and fall off in large amount. During summers, our hairs are more exposed to sun, heat, and humidity so you need to be extra careful to prevent the heat toll on your hairs.
We all wait for summers to enjoy some basking under the sun with chilling beers at the beach. Running my beauty salon in Dubai for 10 years in dealing with all kinds of hair, I learned some useful tips that will help you beat the heat and go outdoors in the scorching sun without any worries of hair fall,
Wash Less Often
In summers, people tend to wash their hair too frequently than it is required owing to the greasy, itchy scalp. Try just rinsing in the shower after a day at the beach or pool, and see if that gets rid of some extra oil. But be careful not to do it too much since it can lead to dry scalp and your hair may lose its natural oils and moisture. Another quick fix is to dab a cotton ball soaked in witch hazel along your scalp to dissolve excess oil.
Another great summer hair care tip is to opt for a hat or use a scarf to cover your head when you’re out in the sun. This provides extra UV protection and helps your scalp to retain moisture and it will also save you from damaging your hair from the dust and pollution outside causing dull hair.
Apple Cider Vinegar Massage
Apple Cider Vinegar consumption and hair massage stimulates growth and prevents hair loss in summers. It stimulates better blood circulation to the hair follicles that is vital for encouraging growth, preventing hair loss and even is effective against split ends. It reduces itchy scalp and dandruff and adds shine to the hair. Apple Cider massage is the best tip for hair growth and is recommended twice in summer months.
Apply Some Sunscreen and Conditioners
If you are going for a swim, apply a thin layer of coconut oil or conditioner in your hair before swimming to protect it. One quick way to add some protection is to run your hands lightly through your hair after applying sunscreen to your body. Try a natural deep conditioning treatment once a week to get that extra bit of moisture into your hair. If your hair is greasy and oily, then shift to Dry-shampoos. It does a good job soaking up excess oil without causing your scalp to produce even more and let your hair dry naturally.
Right diet and loads of water not only works well for a healthy body and mind but also for our hair, especially in summers. Regular and plentiful water consumption improves the color and texture of hairs and also keeps the scalp clean by building new cells properly. Consume fruits and vegetables with high water content, fiber content like melons, carrots and spinach and drink plenty of water to keep them hydrated as well as shiny from root to tip.
