It is believed that hair is damaged and falls mostly during summer. Particularly there are many reasons behind hair fall including excessive sweat, sun, tight hairstyles, and frequent washing can weaken the strands and cause breakage and hair fall. Some effective hair care tips can prevent hair fall and keep your hair looking healthy and fuller.
1. Indulge in deep conditioning treatments
Deep conditioning treatments are also a good option to prevent hair fall and give the hair more nourishment. This treatment is not done only in winter but also in summer. Using a deep conditioning treatment like a simple hair mask can strengthen the hair cuticle and prevent problems like split ends, frizzy hair, and hair fall.
2. Use a mild shampoo and conditioner
During summer hair gets greasy and oily quickly, due to excessive sweating and oil production. Washing your hair regularly is essential to maintain a clean and fresh scalp. But frequent hair washing can cause dryness and weaken the roots leading to hair fall. For this, you can opt for a mild shampoo that will prevent hair fall and also will not damage the hair.
3. Hot oil massage
Warm oil massage not only rejuvenates your senses but also does a whole lot of wonders for your hair. You might feel applying oil to hair can be a bad idea but it is not. One can avoid the scalp area if you have an oily scalp. You can give nourishment to the length and ends which will make them stay healthy and look shiny. Hot oil massage helps to stimulate blood flow to the scalp and facilitates the growth of new hair.
4. Reduce heat styling
During summer the sun’s rays absorb moisture from your tresses which leads to dry and brittle scalp. Using a heat styling tool in the summer will damage your hair and make it brittle and frizzy. Regular heat styling can lead to hair breakage and thinning. To prevent this, use some heat protectant before styling, and keep heat styling to a minimum.
5. Stay hydrated
Dehydration can be a problem during summer as it causes the hair to get brittle and break off because we sweat a lot. Drinking enough fluids during summer ensures that your body is thoroughly nourished from the inside. If the scalp is well nourished, it will prevent hair fall, damage caused by the sun and strengthen the roots of the hair. Make sure you increase your fluid intake. You can also consume water-rich foods like cucumber, watermelon, and tomatoes.
