As we know, in summer our hair is very oily because the heat of summer damages our strands. Here are 6 tips for taking care of your hair.
1. Reduce heat
We can apply a deep conditioner containing SPF protection or use a hat to cover the scalp if we are going to have a long day in the sun. Avoiding heat as much as possible is a good way to protect hair.
2. Limit damage caused by chlorine
We can prepare the hair before taking a bath, avoiding the greenish color and the damage caused by chlorine. We can use tap water to rinse the hair before swimming to make sure it will absorb significantly less chlorine, as dry hair behaves like a sponge. After swimming, rinse the hair with apple cider vinegar and water to limit the damage caused by chlorine.
3. Keratin treatments
As heat and the sun oxidize the color of our hair, we can use Kertain treatments to revitalize and rehydrate our hair and bring it back to life.
4. Wash less
In summer, it is better to wash your hair less, as frequent washing will stimulate additional oil production. Rinse the hair with cold water on the day of the break because they close the cuticle and hide its moisture. We can mix 2-3 tsp. coconut water with lemon juice, then apply this mixture to the scalp and massage for 5 minutes, then rinse with cold water to control the secretion of oil in the scalp. Do this as a weekly treatment for best results.
5. Fighting frizz
For frizzy hair, we can create an easy taming spray mixing argan oil and water to hydrate the hair while protecting it from moisture. Apply hairspray to the hair and run it well to help lock our frizzy and rebellious hair. Do not brush the hair with regular brushes, as this would make natural curls in frizz.
6. Drink more water
As we know, water always hydrates hair and scalp. We’d better drink 2-3 liters of water a day. In addition, we should eat delicious healthy foods that can stimulate hair growth.
