Summer Haircare: The Essential Tips

Every year, summer brings with it the promise of warmer weather. But it’s also accompanied by renewed warnings about the power of the sun and the damage it can do to our skin. And while people are becoming increasingly aware of the skincare benefits of sunblock and sun protection creams, there’s still surprisingly little knowledge about protecting hair from the sun’s harmful rays too.

Here are five tips to keeping your hair healthy this summer:

1. Detox

Hair care starts with you. Maintain a well-balanced diet in your daily routine. For example, a high intake of dietary fat can increase oil on the skin which can lead to greasy hair, so it’s best to avoid it.  Include as many fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet as you can to maintain those lustrous locks.

2. Use a shower filter

Using a shower filter helps remove any impurities in water which can directly damage the hair follicle.

3. Minimise stress or de-stress

Stress is a key factor that aids in hair loss. Whether or not hair loss is genetic, stress can work as a trigger to speed up the hair loss process.

4. Maintain good hygiene

By maintaining your hygiene, your body is more prone to absorb Vitamin D levels and promote healthy hair growth. This can be done through having a healthy diet, exercise and shower regularly.

5. Opt for a wash every other day

Don’t wash your hair as frequent during the harsh summer days. Opt for a wash with only your conditioner, rather than shampoo.
