How to avoid getting dry hair this summer?
Its summer once again. Most people nowadays are going to the beaches and to other cool areas like Baguio and Tagaytay. We can’t avoid to expose our skin and hair from the sun. Yes, you can put sunblock lotion to your skin to avoid burn and getting it dry, but how about your hair? Here are few tips for us to avoid having frizzy, coarse hair.
- Look for frizz-control shampoos and conditioners. The conditioner should be a 2-to-5 minute daily use treatment that you leave in for a few minutes and then rinse out. Just before rinsing, run a wide-toothed comb through your hair, getting out the worst of the knots. If your hair is really thick and coarse, comb it in the shower before you rinse out the conditioner.
- Shampoo less. Use small amounts of conditioner instead; rinse hair well. You should notice a difference in a few days. Some shampoos contain harsh ingredients that suds beautifully but strip your hair of moisture. This added dryness can cause frizzles.
- Once or twice a month use a good deep-conditioning or hot-oil treatment. You could also pick one night a week to leave in a conditioning treatment (make sure to sleep with a shower cap to avoid staining your pillowcase). Wash your hair in the morning.
- Avoid standard-issue coloring products, which often come with ammonia. An ammonia-free product that contains moisturizers will not only pump up your color, it’ll fatten the hair shaft and impart some great shine.
- Avoid blow-drying your hair. It is one of the worst things you can do to your hair–it increases the dryness and flattens waves or curls. The best way to avoid the problems of blow-drying is to let hair dry naturally. But if you don’t have the time, use a diffuser, which you can easily attach to your blow dryer available at certain beauty and drugstores. It emits heat evenly and with less intensity.
- Apply an anti-frizz product before blow-drying and don’t hold the diffuser too close to your head–at least 4-inches away. And don’t ever comb your hair during or after blow drying. Lift it up in bunches if you need to get underneath and scrunch the curls with your fist while letting the diffused heat blow over your head. If you brush or comb it, chances are the frizz will return.
- If your hair is coarse and curly, you probably need a strong daily conditioner plus an anti-frizz gel or pomade to control your curl. If it’s fine hair that frizzes instead of curling, you need a lighter conditioner and you should avoid pomades and gels in styling. Look instead for anti-frizz serums and mousses. Lightly squeeze it into your curls, being careful to avoid the scalp, so you don’t get a greasy look.
