During summer, the sun is working overtime beaming down the harmful UVA/UBA rays on our head making your scalp drier and weakening your hair roots. Not only the rays but the humidity and heat work against the hair health making them limp and lifeless. The high humidity content in the atmosphere settles on the hair and weighs it down so that there is no natural bounciness left. These humid days can also bring in a lot of hair problems, like itchiness of the scalp, hair fall, dandruff, fungal and bacterial infections etc.
The harsh sun can play havoc with hair, so covering hair with a scarf or hat will protect our hair from UV rays and retain its moisture. Also keeping hair loose or short works wonders during summer because it helps the air to flow out and prevent the accumulation of sweat.
However, in humid weather, most of us tend to wash our hair regularly due to the humid weather which is wrong. Regularly washing strips off natural and protective oil from our scalp. Instead washing hair daily, we suggest a maximum of thrice a week.
Due to summer, our scalp is already exposed to a lot of heat. So avoiding tools like blow dryers and flat irons during summer would save our scalp from getting exposed to more heat. However, applying hair masks and cooling packs will reduce the amount of heat. Not only do they cool our scalp but also nourishes and increases its health and condition.
