Summer hair care… 11 steps
Summer hair care… 11 steps
The scorching sun in the summer can damage your hair, just as it can affect the skin, so you have to plan well, and take appropriate precautions to take care of your hair, which we review in this report, according to the “Skincraft” website, in 11 steps.
1- Use hats and scarves
The sun can dry out your hair, and to protect it from its harmful rays, you should wear a hat or scarf.
You can choose from wide-brimmed hats and beanie hats, and for an extra layer of protection, try wrapping your hair in a silk scarf before putting on the hat.
2- Apply UV protection
Today’s hair care products come with ingredients that are effective against harmful UV rays.
And we advise you not to use (shampoo) that contains UV protection because it is full of toxic chemicals.
While hair care experts advise, gently pass your hands through your hair after applying sunscreen to your face or hands.
3-Modify your hair washing routine
In the summer, the temperature and humidity increase, which may lead you to wash your hair more often.
But be aware of the fact that overusing (shampooing) can dry out your hair even more by stripping your scalp of its natural oils.
However, you can continue to wash with moisturizing cleansers 2-3 times a week.
Regular haircuts ensure that you don’t have split ends, and trimming makes your hair easier to manage.
And you don’t have to worry about the length, hair grows faster in the summer because most of the strands are in the anagen or anagen phase during this time.
5- Deep hydration
Deep conditioning, helps add a layer of protection to the scalp.
And in the summer, you should consider using deep conditioning treatments for extra hydration.
6- Drink water
You have to drink a lot of water and fluids in the summer to moisturize your locks, this is a tip that you cannot ignore.
7- Tie your hair up
Tie your hair up not only to limit sun exposure, but also to avoid sweating.
Sweaty hair is not fun! You can try hairstyles like braids, ponytails, or buns.
Hairstyles guarantee you hair that is free of split ends.
8. Avoid heat tools
You should reduce the use of heat styling tools such as hair dryers and irons.
9. Use appropriate lotions
If you go swimming, chlorinated water can ruin the health of your hair, so you should use shampoos and conditioners made specifically for swimmers, which reduce the effect of chlorine on your hair.
10- Massage with oil
Massage with oils such as coconut oil, olive oil, or sweet almond oil can increase blood circulation to the scalp and moisturize your hair. You can add a few drops of essential oil such as lavender oil.
11- Dyed hair care
Heat can affect colored hair greatly. You should avoid coloring your hair in the summer.
Try organic ingredients in your color treatments, and always use hair care products that are suitable for color-treated hair so that hair stays healthy.
