Changing weather can play havoc with your hair. Some days it gets dry and frizzy or some days it goes totally limp. Rarely would you find a woman who is at peace with her hair. Still, hope this all weather guide helps you keep your mane manageable.
Summer- Bright sunshine Common worry: UV damage, fading of colour
Like skin, heat and direct sunshine damages hair too. So best is to shield it. Wear hats. Try to twist and braid hair so that minimal strands get exposed. Use heat protecting hair serum. It is best to go easy on heat styling as over processed hair is more prone to UV damage. Use subtle shades of colour so that fading doesn't look appear obvious.
Wind Common worry: Brittleness, Static, Volume loss
The biggest challenge in windy weather is static. If hair is already dry, the problem amplifies. Use a quick deep conditioner to moisturise hair. This will make combing easier and prevent breakage. The key is to keep hair as hydrated as possible. So its best to invest in hydrating serums, sprays or mists. Also try installing a humidifier at home, trust me, it will do good to your hair.
Rain and Humidity Common worry: Frizzy or flat, limp hair
Humidity is a big spoiler for hair styles, so save yourself the frustration. Let your tresses take their natural form. It is a good time to flaunt those waves and curls. Though its humid, you must still use a conditioner. Ditch the blow dryer and flat irons. They make hair dry and frizz-prone. Fine hair might go more limp, so you may try a volume-pumping mousse. Remember to use anti-frizz serums every time you dry your hair.
Dryness Common worry: Brittleness, Loss of shine
Dryness causes loss of elasticity. Such hair is brittle and breaks easily. Key is to retain hair's natural oils and moisturise as much as possible. Apply conditioner to your hair ear down before shampooing the scalp. If your hair is coarse try mixing a treatment oil to your shampoo. After hair wash, let your hair dry naturally instead of tying up in a towel or blow drying. Top your mane with hydrating serums or light coconut water oil, argan oil.
To sum it up, hair care is not a difficult task. Just a few pointers and you can easily take on regardless of the forecast.
Moisturise: Less dry, less brittle. Use a hydrating shampoo, conditioner and serum. Argan oil is the new sensation in hair care, definitely worth a try.
Sulfates: Sulfates are the lathering agents in a shampoo. Get one which is sulfate free. It robs your tresses of their natural oils.
Stay away from heat: Blow dryers, flat irons, hot curlers damage hair. Minimise use as far as possible. When unavoidable, remember to protect your hair with serum first.
