    Alternate your Wash

    The scalp sweats more during summer and it may lead to dandruff. This might make you feel like you have a dirty scalp, making you want to wash your hair every day, but that's not a good idea. Washing hair daily will strip your hair of its natural oils. Therefore, wash your hair on alternate days.

    It is best to condition every time you shampoo your hair to rehydrate. Choose a protein based conditioner to minimize any damage done by the shampoo. Use a moisturizer with natural hydrators, but avoid conditioners with too much protein since too much protein can leave your hair feeling brittle. Deep condition your hair once a week.

    Don't Brush too Much

    Combing can damage your hair. Summer takes away the moisture from hair leaving them vulnerable to damage from brushing. Use a natural-fiber comb to detangle hair immediately after showering.
