Long Hair Tips: It’s that time of the year when the days are long and hot, very very hot. We all know how bad the heat can be for your hair. Here are 7 easy tips that can help keep your hair shiny and healthy all through the summer, in the most natural and chemical-free way possible!
Let them loose:
A messy bun or a ponytail is the way to go. Tightly tied hair can lead to hair fall and damage. It reduces the chances of all your hair is exposed to the sun and also looks chic.
No Extra Heat:
Try to keep away from hair styling appliances that involve heat, like curling tongs, straightening rod etc. Also avoid the hair dryer as much as possible. Your hair would air-dry quickly in this weather, anyway.
Scarves, Caps, Hats:
Stepping out with your head covered is probably the best way to protect your tresses from the harsh sun. Not only does it prevent damage, wearing a hat also helps retaining moisture on your scalp. Plus, they can make a phenomenal fashion statement.
Comb, don't brush:
A wide-tooth comb is probably the best way to untangle your hair. Given the dry weather, hair fall increases and so brushing might lead to excessive pull and tear.
Oil, to avoid spoil:
Oiling is still the best trick in the box. Use light and cooler oils like coconut, and apply it at least once a week, if not twice. It is definitely time-consuming, but the results are noticeable. Check out this awesome article by Vineeta on DIY Salon Like Oil Spa at Home!!!
A tad bit of sunscreen:
There are shampoos which have sunscreen in them, but generally, they are heavily chemically formulated. Instead, once you are done applying sunscreen on your body, just run your fingers through your hair. It is just the right amount, without making your hair look greasy.
Eat for healthy hair:
A protein-rich diet is best recommended for healthy hair. Natural meat and dairy products are a rich source for the same. You can also indulge in delicious fruits like guavas, mulberries (shahtoosh), apricots etc that the summer has to offer.
Apply these super simple rules in daily life and rock beautiful hair like a Diva!!
