Hair Care For Summer:
Summers can be really harsh not just for your skin but also for your hair. Sun can damage your hair too. Within a few weeks of the summer season, your once shiny and supple hair can look all dry and fried. Here fried isn’t a metaphor. The strong UV rays of the sun can actually cook the shaft of the hair. This damage is evident especially in the color-treated hair as they start looking brassy, faded, and bleached.
Even hair that is not colored will face sun damage. The UV rays roughen the smooth cuticle or outer layer of the hair shaft. Dry hair is more likely to become frizzy and unmanageable. Also, swimming to beat the summer woes can take a toll on your hair.
Summers don’t have to be the season for bad hair days. With some TLC, you can manage your hair and make them look great even during summers. Here’s a look at some tips that can help in taking care of your hair during summers:
Welcome the summer season with a trim
Getting a trim will help in getting rid of the split and rough ends and also refresh your hairstyle. Hair really grows fast during summers and you might need a midseason hair cut too. There is more hair in the growing stage during spring/ summer as compared to the dead of winter.
Protect the strands from direct sun
You should make a daily habit of applying proper hair care products which can protect your hair from UV rays. These products protect the hair from sun damage and also prevent the fading of colors from color-treated hair. If you are going to spend a significant amount of time outdoors, it is advisable to use wide-brimmed hat. The hat will not only protect your hair but also your scalp and ear from scorching sun rays.
Cover the stands before taking a dip
Here’s a tip that you must follow before hitting the swimming pool. Keep your hair wet with clean water or apply a leave-in conditioner. This will prevent your hair from absorbing much of saltwater or pool chemicals. It is also recommended to rinse your hair after a swim. If you are not able to find a shower nearby, it is better to keep a spray bottle filled with fresh water.
Switch to deeply moisturizing shampoo and conditioner
It is common to wash hair more often during summers due to sweat and dirt. It is recommended to use a deep-conditioning treatment after every wash or at least after every 2-3 washes. You can also use anti-residue or clarifying shampoo once a week.
Reduce usage of hot tools
You should limit your use of tools such as straighteners, tongs, blow-dried, etc., especially during summers. Wash your hair at night and pile up your hair in a bun, ponytail, or braids. When you wake up the next morning, you will have nice beachy waves. This way you will be able to style your hair naturally without using heating tools.
Despite taking all the precautions, you might experience hair fall irrespective of the season. Sometimes, the remedies and regular treatments don’t show results as hair loss treatment.
It is best to consult the most experienced hair transplant surgeon –Dr. Kedarnath Pandya, for your hair loss issue as they will guide you further about the transplant. The hair transplant doctor will analyze the reason for hair loss and also find out if you are the right candidate for hair transplant surgery.
