Hair Dryness, not just limited to Winter!

Hair dryness, split ends and a damaged hair for you is just not limited to winter season. Even summer has its own set of surprises for you… here are some summer hair care tips, if followed can protect the ‘beauty’ of your hair;

If you know you are going to be in the sun for a long time and if you don't want to wear anything on your head, use a leave in conditioner with sunscreen in it before you go out.

If you are outside and forgot to put leave in conditioner with sunscreen in your hair, you can put regular sunscreen in your hair, but make sure you rinse it out with a deep cleansing shampoo when you get home.

Limit your use of "hot" items on your hair such as a blow dryers and curling irons.

Avoid taking hot showers or washing your hair in hot water. Use warm or cool water instead; the heat can dry out and/or damage your hair and skin.

Try washing your hair less often; shampooing your hair strips the moisture out of your hair.

Try using a dry shampoo if you need to wash out your hair. One dry shampoo you can use is baby powder, simply sprinkle some onto your hair and use a comb to comb it off. Use a moisturizing shampoo that is gentler than your regular shampoo for the summer.

Get your hair trimmed every six to eight weeks. Your hair grows faster in the warmer months and splits in hair are more common in the summer months due to the heat and moisture.

Hair products that have the word "Replenish" on it is made to moisturize your hair.

Knotting your hair, braiding it or wearing it up or in a bun will help contain frizzies.

Putting conditioner on the frizzy areas of your hair and sleeping with your hair up or with plastic around your hair will help remoisturize the dry areas of your hair.

Once you have your hair moist, lock in the moisture by running your hair through cold water; this will also give your hair an extra shine.
