As summers set in, it is essential that you protect your hair from the scorching sun rays. Sun damage to the hair can manifest as faded hair colour, brittle and dry hair. The UV-rays can cause permanent damage to the outside covering of the hair which is the cuticle and it can penetrate into the center of the hair, which is the cortex and do all sorts of damage. Hence, you need to take special care of your hair during this season.
With onset of summers the sweat and sebaceous glands get hyperactive, resulting in scalp problems. To prevent this one needs to increase the frequency of shampooing and conditioning. With the changing seasons one has to keep changing the shampoo and conditioner.
For normal to dry hair one can use mild shampoos but avoid heavy conditioning. People with normal to oily hair can preferably use shampoos with citrus extract and a very light conditioner. It is a myth that oily hair does't need conditioning! All hair types should use a conditioner, but the one specially made for their hair type.
Home remedies can be adapted to beat the blues of Indian summer. Follow the simple hair care regimen and flaunt a healthy lustrous mane this summer!
