Summer is almost here and the sun is shining mercilessly upon us. An adequate amount of sunlight is necessary to nourish our body with vitamin D. But excessive exposure to the sun can be detrimental to our health. It can cause dehydration, fatigue, skin burn, and heatstroke. The scorching heat and harsh sunlight can cause serious damage to our skin and hair as well. It is crucial to take special care of our health during the summer season. We really need to pamper our skin and hair to protect them from the harsh Sun.
Here are 5 tips to take care of our hair:
1. Say NO to the hair dryer
Use of hair dryer on hair can result in chronic dryness of scalp and split ends. It’s better to let the hair dry naturally, on their own. Excessive use of heat on hair can make them lose their natural shine and moisture.
2. Do the ‘champi’
This summer, make herbal hair oils your best friend. Constant exposure to Sun can make hair brittle and limp. Hence they need regular pampering of warm oil massage. Pick any herbal hair oil and gently massage your hair. This must be done at least once a week to achieve desired results.
3. Avoid the sun
It goes without saying that to protect your hair from the sun is to avoid going in the sun. But that doesn’t mean you have to stop stepping out of the house in the daytime. Make sure you cover your head with a scarf or a hat to avoid direct contact with sunlight with the hair.
4. Condition your hair
If you notice that your hair is losing their natural flair and shine over time, then it’s probably time to start using a good hair conditioner. It is important to pick a conditioner that suits your hair type. Also, the hair conditioner should be Ph balanced. Just a coin-sized a dollop of conditioner on wet and shampooed hair can do wonders for your hair.
5. Natural moisturizing
Fancy bottled hair conditioners are not the only things that can save your dry and dull hair. Alternatives can be found in the kitchen of your house as well. Natural hair masks and conditioners can easily be made at home with simple kitchen ingredients like eggs, banana, olive oil, lemon, yoghurt etc. These items are natural and free of artificial chemicals.
