When summer rolls around, we stock up on sunscreen and drink water by the bottle – all in an attempt to minimize sun damage on the skin. Too often we forget that the sun wreaks havoc on our hair as well. Fortunately, there are many ways to protect your hair from damage during the summer, as listed below:
Summer calls for UV protection on all exposed surfaces of your body. This means hair too. Hair sunscreen is usually available in a spray form, which you can spray on your hair during the day. However, UV protection shampoos and conditioner are also available.
Cover up with a hat or a scarf to avoid sun damage on your hair. Prevention is the best medicine, as they say. It also helps your scalp retain moisture and prevents from tangling. Wear your hair in loose braids or buns to minimize the damage.
Bonus: Covering up acts as protection for your skin too.
Turn Down The Heat:
Heat is the most damaging thing for hair. Heat dries out the hair and strips it of its natural oils. Your hair is already getting exposed to heat thanks to the boiling summer sun. Using heated hair styling products every day can lead to burnt hair in the long term. Using a heat protectant and a lower heat setting will do wonders in avoiding the damage caused by the iron and blow dryer.
Summer comes with dry hair and split ends, so conditioning is key for your hair during the summer. Conditioning your hair on a regular basis allows the hair to retain moisture. It also keeps your hair shiny, bouncy and healthy. Switch to a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner for the summer to keep your tresses at their best.
Hot Oil Treatment:
Castor oil, coconut oil, sesame oil, jojoba oil and almond oil all have various nutrients that help your hair retain its shine in the summer. Instead of using one or the other, use a mix of these oils to really infuse your hair with the nutrients it needs. These oils are rich in vitamin E and antioxidants. They fight off dandruff, reduce hair fall and frizz and nourish the scalp. Regular oiling gives you healthy, thick, shiny, and moisturized hair.
The best way to ensure long and strong hair is to eat a balanced, real food based diet that includes nutrient-dense foods (both plants and animals). Drinking plenty of water during the summer helps keep it moisturized and fruits and vegetables provide the building blocks. Proteins found in meat, eggs, fish, beans, nuts and whole grains keep your hair healthy, thick and shiny.
However, supplements like Inversion Femme can be necessary when it is impossible to get enough from the diet alone.
