Summer Hair Troubles, Kaya Solves It
It is made up of 10 to 15% of water and on hot summery days, part of this moisture evaporates. Heat from the sun also damages the protective protein present in hair, which can render your luscious locks brittle and dull. Extreme heat can even damage hair follicles leading to frizzy hair. Also, if you are a water baby, the sea (saltwater) and pool (chlorine) will make your hair look dry and dead.
So what can you do to protect your locks against summer heat and keep it healthy and strong forever? Let’s take a look.
Moisturize Your Hair
Yes, just like the rest of the year, hair needs nourishment during summers as well. It helps retain moisture and fight frizz. So use a good hair gel which adds moisture to your hair and imparts protein. Best ones are the leave-in ones. Kaya’s Health Gel has herbal extracts like Saw Palmetto, Gingko biloba and Hibiscus which provide essential proteins and minerals thus promoting stronger, beautiful hair.
Shampoo and Nourish Your Hair
During summer, scalp tends to get oily as heat prompts to overwork the sebaceous glands. It leads to the production of more oil and sweat, making your hair dirtier. So you eventually end up washing your hair more frequently. Excess washing is also harmful if a shampoo does not suit you. It could lead to hair-fall, breakage and excessively entangled hair. But, Kaya’s Nourishing Shampoo is mild enough to be used every day. It has Hibiscus extracts which adds lustre to your hair and almond oil which prevents breakage.
Due to sebaceous glands on an overdrive, your hair will be greasier and attract more dirt. This will lead to an itchy scalp, scaling and invariably, to dandruff. Use an anti-dandruff shampoo or lotion, that will prevent dandruff. Regular use of Kaya’s Anti Dandruff Lotion with OT complex can effectively curb dandruff and reduce itching. It also nourishes and conditions your scalp.
Besides following suggestions and products, protect your hair from the scorching sun. Cover your hair with a scarf, hat or a cap when you are out for long hours. Make sure it does not wrap around your head too tight, else it can restrict blood circulation.
If you plan to head for daily swim to the pool, prep your hair by rinsing it with tap water both before and after swimming. This is because chlorine builds up a residue on your hair making it dry and brittle. Do wear a swimming cap to further protect your hair. Also, irrespective of whether you swim or not, tie up your hair in a braid or bun or ponytail.
Summer is the best time to head for a trim as hair grows fast; so just head to your favourite hair salon. Split ends are more likely to occur during summer as hair dries easily and therefore, trimming helps.
Looking after your hair in the summer is not as difficult as it seems and with these tips, you will be able to maintain your luscious locks no matter what.
