The sun, the sea or pool water, your sweat, and the string of activities you’re busy with this summer– they can all take a toll on your hair. It’s quite easy for your hair to turn into a frizzy, tangled mess these days, even if you’re not yet halfway through your day! You may also start noticing your locks look and feeling unhealthier every time you catch a glimpse of them, or even as you flick through your photos on your phone or Facebook page.
Getting summer-ravaged hair may be inevitable, but there are ways to tame those tresses and keep them healthy and manageable this season. Consider the following tips:
Don’t go into overdrive with cleaning your mane
Although you become desperate to get rid of stubborn sand in your hair, don’t drown your hair with shampoo! As much as possible (especially if you have hair extensions), wash your hair only every other day (or less if you can afford it), so your hair and scalp won’t dry too much. Also ensure you’re using a salon-recommended shampoo – avoid the cheap products and your hair will thank you for it!
Nourish your hair with conditioner
After shampooing and in-between those washes, use deep conditioners to moisturise your hair. Think of your hair as parched, which is why it feels dry and brittle; conditioner soothes the thirst and keeps your hair healthy.
Get salon treatment as needed
Seek a professional stylist for special hair treatments to revive your hair’s lustrous, healthy quality. While you’re at the hair salon, consider getting a more manageable (shorter) cut, which can make summer hair care much easier.
