Seasonal hair care needs

Seasonal hair care needs: Weather is deeply connected to our everyday life. Our day to day routine is very much dependant on the kind of weather. We have a day planned based on what season it is. On a summer day, you would like to go to the beach. While during winters; you will enjoy ice skating.  A picnic basket to the park is great for spring. Indoors with a hot cup of coffee is what rains are for. Similarly, weather effects our hair care needs too. As season changes; so does the characteristics of our hair. While in summers, we can have sticky and oily hair, in winters our hair is dry and may have dandruff. Thus, as the season changes, you should change the priorities of hair care as well. Every season causes different problems and it needs to be tackled effectively to prevent the hair damage.
Let’s look at the effects of weather, season by season:

Summer

Summers is the time to laze around the swimming pools and get tanned by the sun. But the sun causes serious damage to our hair. Overexposure to the harsh sun has the same effect on the hair as heat styling tools. It makes the hair dry and makes it lose the moisture. You can use a scarf or a hat to prevent this. You must apply for heat protection when you go out. If you have chances of being in a chlorine swimming, wear a swimming cap and wash your hair immediately after you come out of the pool. Make sure you drink enough water and eat enough fruits to prevent your hair from dehydrating. Shampoo and oil at regular intervals. Condition well. Use a serum when the hair is damp after washing.

Winter

The most common weather-related effects on the hair during winter come from the cold. Cold, dry air can cause the cuticle layer of the hair to lift, leaving your hair, dry and frizzy. The most common problem during winters is dandruff. It is really difficult to get through it. Make sure you oil your hair regularly and massage it well so that it gets the oil into the scalp. Try to reduce shampooing but condition more. Cover your hair when you’re out in the cold or in the snow. Hot oil massages are the best remedy for hair troubles during winters.

Monsoon

Monsoons are the favourite of a lot of people. People like to get drenched in the rain and enjoy it. But the rain itself has a lot of chemicals due to pollution. Getting wet in this polluted rainwater doesn’t just affect the hair but also the scalp. The main problems faced during the monsoons is the itchiness of the scalp, dandruff, frizzy and dry hair, and the sticky feeling. Another major culprit during this season is humidity. The best way to deal with this is a perfect balance between oiling and shampooing.
Changing your routines with the seasons is a crucial part of our lives. Maintaining your hair care needs accordingly is also a necessity.
