Nope, just slathering sunscreen all over your body isn't enough to keep the summer sun at bay, you need to amp up your hair game too. From going heat tools-free to getting oil treatments, experts Audrey D'Souza from TIGI and Sangeeta Velaskar from Kaya tell you how to get you hair summer-ready in your home. 

Get dirrrty

Not literally, but you can definitely benefit from not washing your hair every day. Frequent washing strips your scalp of its natural oils, which in turn stimulates additional oil production and makes you feel the need to wash it even more. If you must, try rinsing in the shower after a day at the beach or pool, and see if that gets rid of some extra oil. Use a natural dry shampoo, instead of regular shampoo to go a bit longer without washing. 

Make oil your bae

Summer season can make your hair dry and frizzy. Try using a coconut, olive, and avocado oil weekly treatment. They penetrate easily into the hair shaft and moisturise your mane. Then, shampoo and condition as usual. This will instantly make your hair feel softer to touch and much more hydrated.

Keep the straightener or curler at bay

With the sun rays being strong, additional use of any heat styling products will damage your hair even further. If you want to get some bounce in your hair naturally, use a volumnising shampoo and braid your damp hair. Then, open them up when they dry to get beachy waves. Similarly, you can also straighten your hair without heat by pinning damp hair tightly at the back and letting the dry before taking out the clips.

Hair-sessions at night

Apart from sleeping on a satin pillowcase, you can do other things to ensure you wake up with frizz-free hair. Just wrap a towel around your hair after applying a leave-in conditioner to the dry and frizzy hair areas and leave overnight. Voila! Wake up with tamed, soft and unfrizzy hair.

Do's and don'ts

The ultimate triple threat for your hair during summers is the combination of heat, sun and humidity. You can prevent major damage by using a heat protector serum that would also work as UV protection for your hair. Also, try use a wide tooth comb, especially on wet hair to avoid split ends. These combs are most gentle for untangling hair, as hair brushes can pull and tear when they snag strands.
