Top 10 tips for dry hair in summers

Summer plays havoc not only with your skin but also your hair. If you have dry hair, hot weather can lead to stickiness, frizz, excess oil production, itchy scalp and dandruff. Here are some simple ways to keep your mane smiling and happy.

  1. Hydrate from the inside out: Drink plenty of water and eat  skin but a balanced diet with lots of fruits and vegetables to keep your body and hair hydrated.

  2. Use a gentle shampoo: Choose a sulfate-free shampoo that is gentle on your hair and scalp. Sulfates can strip your hair of natural oils, leading to dryness. Check out our sulfate & paraben free shampoos here.

  3. Condition regularly: Use a deep conditioning treatment once a week to moisturize your hair and prevent dryness.

  4. Avoid hot styling tools: Try to avoid using heat styling tools like blow dryers, straighteners, and curling irons as much as possible. Heat can damage your hair and make it even more dry and brittle.

  5. Protect your hair from the sun: Cover your hair with a hat or scarf when you're out in the sun to protect it from UV rays. This will help prevent dryness and damage.

  6. Don't over-wash your hair: Washing your hair too often can strip it of natural oils, leading to dryness. Try to wash your hair every other day or every three days instead of every day.

  7. Use a leave-in conditioner: Apply a leave-in conditioner to your hair after washing to keep it moisturized and protected.

  8. Avoid chlorine: Chlorine can be extremely damaging to your hair, so try to avoid swimming in chlorinated pools if possible. If you do go swimming, wear a swim cap or rinse your hair with fresh water afterwards.

  9. Trim regularly: Regular trims will help prevent split ends and breakage, which can make your hair look even more dry and damaged.

  10. Use natural oils: Coconut oil, argan oil, and jojoba oil are great natural oils that can help moisturize and protect your hair. Apply a small amount to the ends of your hair to keep them hydrated and healthy.
