Summers can wreak havoc on your hair. No matter your hair and skin type, you could end up dealing with frizz, brittleness, sweat, dandruff, and other skin & hair issues. However, the right tips, when added to your hair care routine, could help you prevent hair issues that you face in the summers.
Let’s look at 6 summer hair care tips -
1. Stay hydrated
While a natural herbal shampoo for dry hair is a must, you can also achieve great results with Aloe Vera. This plant contains high water content and is a great natural remedy to fix dehydrated hair. To get the benefits, apply Aloe jelly directly to your scalp and hair strands.
2. Ensure good nourishment
Regularly nourish your hair with the goodness of Avocado. The protein and oil content in Avocado can nourish the hair while adding body and shine. Mash one Avocado into a pulp. Add a tablespoon each of brewed green tea and Fenugreek seed powder. Mix with lukewarm water to form a paste. Apply on your hair. Wash it off after half an hour.
3. Address dull hair
Lemon can be used to treat dry hair. After your hair wash, apply 1 tbsp of lemon juice to your hair. Towel dry and style as normal.
4. Oil your scalp
Using a hair oil containing Amla can help you maintain the normal acid-alkaline balance of the scalp and prevent dandruff. Take a handful of dry Amla and grind coarsely. Add this coarse powder to 100 ml of pure coconut oil. Store it in an airtight glass bottle. Keep this bottle in the sun for about 15 consecutive days. Strain the oil, store it, and use it regularly.
5. Cleanse your scalp
The heat doesn’t affect the length of your locks alone. Sweat and oil accumulated in your scalp can leave it feeling itchy and prone to more hair trouble. Washing all of it off in the right way can keep your hair refreshed. Ingredients such as Soap nut, or Shikakai, are mentioned in Ayurveda for their properties in helping wash and clean hair.
Mix together a tablespoon of Shikakai with half a tablespoon each of Fenugreek powder, Tulsi powder, Rose petal powder and Neem powder, along with a cup of curd and a tablespoon of olive oil. Let this mixture sit for 30 minutes. Apply the mask onto your scalp. After a 30-minutes rest, wash your hair with normal water and Shikakai powder.
6. Use a hair mask:
Your hair requires more-than-usual pampering for summer. Treat it right with DIY hair masks. Simple kitchen ingredients such as Lemon, Aloe Vera, and Yoghurt can be used to make hair masks.
If you are prone to issues such as hair fall or dandruff in the summers, make sure to use a good shampoo for hair fall and dandruff. To prevent and treat hair issues, it is best to opt for a clean, natural, or herbal hair conditioner. Ayurveda offers time-tested solutions, which you can make the best of by purchasing Ayurvedic shampoos and conditioners.
