Save your hair from summer nightmares fashion trends

If you thought that the summer sun only affects your skin, then you are wrong. The sun does a number on your skin as well as your hair. UVA and UVB rays from the sun can lead to a loss of proteins in the hair shaft which further leads to dryness and breakage.

You should always set a hair care routine for the hot season of the year to do some good to your sunburned locks. Here are some ways to keep your mane healthy, happy this season.

moisturize your mane

It is important to remember that as the weather becomes hotter and more humid, hair tends to become dry and frizzy. This can make your hair strands even more frizzy. Therefore, it is important to make up for the lack of moisture to keep your hair from becoming dry, lifeless and frizzy. People with thick and frizzy hair will benefit the most from adding moisturizing hair care products to their routine as they are more prone to drying out.

stay away from straighteners

When frizz becomes uncontrollable, many of us turn to straightening our hair to make it look straight. While this may seem like a temporary fix, it further damages your hair which is already dehydrated due to moisture and sun damage in the summer months. Instead, opt for DIY or natural styling techniques that create texture than using a hair straightener.

sunscreen for your hair

Like your skin, your hair needs both moisture and UV protection during the summer months. Exposure to the sun without protection can also cause your hair’s natural color to fade. Use a mild sunscreen to protect your natural hair color and apply color locking products with UV protection to maintain colored hair.

wear a hat

The old trick of wearing a hat under the sun can work wonders, as it protects your hair from direct damage. You can wear a trendy hat or hairband/dupatta and protect your hair to make it your Summer 2022 statement look. Applying a leave-in conditioner before going out in the sun will also help to nourish and rehydrate the hair.

hair wash is a must

The summer season brings with it a lot of natural hair, including sweat, and that’s why it’s important that you don’t skip your hair wash days. Replace your regular shampoo and conditioner with sulfate-free versions, and end your washing routine with a pea-sized amount of hair oil or serum applied to the ends. To avoid frizz, dry with a microfiber towel.
