Summer months have its own pros and cons and so we need to take special care of our skin and hair. Especially taking proper care of hair during these months can be quite challenging due to the scorching heat, pollution, dirt, dust, humidity, and the tendency to sweat a lot.
Without care, hair will lose it beauty, shine and will start looking lifeless. So, during the summer, we have to take extra good care of our hair and for this we need certain products.
Here is a list of must have products that you must have:
During the summer it is advisable not to keep your hair loose. Always tie down your hair in a simple ponytail, braided bun, or French braid. This way only some part of your hair will get exposed to the sun rays and the wind. Open hair will also become unmanageable. For a great hair style you can use bobby pins or hair combs or hair sticks. With these accessories you can sport a great summer look and protect your hair too.
Wearing a bandana is a great way to protect your hair during the summer days. Go for a cotton bandana available in various prints. With a bandana you can enjoy various hair styles such as half up hairstyle, a bandana wrapped around top of hair while the rest of it hangs loosely down or even a simple ponytail with a bandana wrapped around it.
Cap or hat:
By wearing a cap or a hat, you can easily protect your hair from the harmful sunrays and the scalp will get protection from the heat. Also it will protect the color of your hair. But you need to make sure that it is not too tight or else it will hamper the blood circulation to your scalp. Even when you plan to go for swimming you must wear a swimming cap so that chlorine in the water does not have much effect on your hair.
Wide tooth comb:
A comb is used for two reasons. First it helps in separating and detangling hair so that you can brush it easily. Secondly it assists in cutting and styling hair. During the summer you must use a wide toothed comb for all hair textures and lengths. Wide tooth combs can detangle wet or dry hair. But it is advisable to comb when your hair is slightly moist so that you don’t have to struggle with your hair. Avoid combing, when your hair is very wet as during this time hair is very fragile and can break easily.
Leave in conditioner:
If you don’t prefer to wear a cap, hat or a bandana while going out in the sun, you must use a leave in conditioner with sunscreen on your hair before going out. A leave in conditioner will keep your hair tangle free. If your leave in conditioner with sunscreen is not available, you can apply a regular sunscreen. While using a conditioner, you must always you must rinse out the conditioner with a deep cleansing shampoo at the end of the day.
