Here’s Your Summer Hair Care Routine
The heat wave seems to get worse each year and accompanying it, is a host of hair and skin care problems. If you have a hectic work schedule, your hair is the part of you that probably gets neglected the most. Neglecting hair care brings along a host of undesirable hair and scalp conditions including hair fall, baldness, and dandruff. Here is a list of some great summer hair care tips you must keep in mind so your tresses can look their fabulous best under the sun.
#1 Cover it up
Like your skin, your hair too needs protection from the sun’s harsh rays. Cover your head with a scarf or wear a hat if you plan to be outdoors for long. UV rays are a known cause of hair lossas they damage your scalp and leave you with brittle hair. If you’ve had chemical hair treatment done – such as straightening – your hair is even more at risk from heat damage.
#2 Use sunscreen
Using hair sunscreen is an important part of your summer hair care routine. Even under your swim cap, your hair should be protected with sunscreen. Many shampoos and conditioners are available with a high SPF. If you’re running late and have forgotten to shampoo, simply apply sunscreen on your skin and run the residue between your fingers through your hair.
#3 Switch to a wide toothed comb
In summers, you tend to sweat a lot. This causes your hair to tangle up. Softly take care of those knots with a wide toothed comb. Avoid combing out knots with a hair brush as this may cause your hair to break and fall. Never comb wet hair.
#4 Keep hair away from heat
During summer put away that hair dryer and those curling tongs. As much as you might be tempted to style your hair before wearing that sundress, don’t. Your hair is already exposed to so much heat from the sun and sweat. Avoid any additional chemicals and heat based hair treatment that will further dry out your scalp.
#5 Adopt some comfortable hairstyles
Avoid tying your hair in a tight bun or straining your fringe back sharply with a plastic hairband. Opt for a comfortable plait, a loose ponytail or simply go short. Sweat, oil, and pressure on your tresses can lead to hair breakage especially in summers.
#6 Shampoo less, condition more
Summers make you sweat and the scalp can get a bit smelly and itchy. Shampooing too often can strip your scalp off its natural oils. If you gym or go running, use a dry shampoo to keep your hair clean. When you do wash your hair, use a coin sized quantity of shampoo to avoid drying out your scalp. Condition your hair length well, avoiding the roots.
#7 Stay hydrated through the day
We often overlook the importance of diet in good hair care. The harsh summer sun dries out your scalp, leaving your strands brittle and prone to breakage. Drink plenty of water, fresh fruit juices and even coconut water to keep your hair hydrated. Avoid energy drinks and sugary packaged juices.
Homeopathy and your hair
If you still face severe hair loss, scalp irritation issues and hair thinning in summers, inspite of following a good hair care regime, it might be time to seek the help of a professional. Homeopathy treatment for hair loss and other scalp conditions is safe and chemical-free. Moreover, homeopathy does not produce any of the common side effects of regular medication such as hormonal imbalance, decreased libido, indigestion, and mood swings.
Homeopathic hair fall treatment focuses on holistic healing. Rather than merely targeting the symptoms, it aims to find and eliminate the root cause. Additionally, homeopathy offers individual solutions to each patient depending on current scalp condition, lifestyle, and medical history. Customized treatment leads to better long term results. If you are facing any hair and scalp issues this summer, don’t hesitate to contact your homeopathic doctor for hair fall treatmentsolutions uniquely designed for you.
