4 Ways To Keep Your Hair Healthy In Summers!

Summers can be the worst time of the year for your hair and most people complain about, hair getting sticky, tangled and unmanageable when the temperature rises. This can be due to the fact that the hair loses its moisture in the heat and often become dry and lifeless. With the onset of summers, your hair care routine should also change according to the climate so that they are healthy and moisturized.

Here are a few tips which you can follow in the summers to keep your hair healthy

1. Cover your head - Cover your head with a hat or a scarf and protect it from direct sunlight. You can also wrap your head with a scarf before putting on that hat which will also protect your hair from getting tangled with the material. Wearing a hat will keep your hair from getting dry and lifeless. Heat can damage your hair and give you split ends hence it is necessary to employ some level of protection.

2. Wash Often - Make sure your hair is getting the moisture it needs. Drink plenty of water and keep your body hydrated, and your hair will also draw benefit from it. Shampooing every day can make your hair dry and frizzy so make sure that you oil and condition it regularly. Rinse your hair properly after a swim because the chlorine in the pool water can damage your hair. Clean your scalp while washing so that it stays healthy.

3. Deep Condition Your Hair - With the temperature rising, you must deep condition your hair at least once a month or once in two weeks depending on your hair type and length. Deep conditioning helps in keeping the moisture locked, strengthens your hair and prevents breakage and hair fall. Deep conditioning requires a plastic wrap which helps the conditioner to penetrate.

4. Style Them With Care - You can style your hair in a way which will keep them away from your face and neck and at the same time and makes you look more presentable. You can try braids, topknots, buns, high ponytails, etc. These hairdos also help prevent unwanted breakage and tangling of hair.
