Summers can be absolutely brutal, especially for your long luscious locks. The heat can seem to literally burn your hair and leave it matted. Moreover, the heat and humidity can make the hair strands sticky and oily. Yes, hair type does play a role but the summer does seem to have the upper hand. So, out here we shall discuss a few effective tips for hair care in summer and how to keep your hair silky and oil free.
Tips for oil-free silky hair
- Maintain clean hair
It all starts with good hygiene. If you have oily roots then you cannot have silky hair at the same time. Running your fingers through your hair will soon spread the sebum along your hair strands leaving you with sticky and oily hair. So, keep hair clean by shampooing with a mild shampoo and rinsing with cold water. Shampooing frequently and with warm water is not a good idea because it will simply dry out and damage your hair shaft. Moreover, it shall further increase oil production in your scalp. So, shampoo only when you begin to find your hair getting too greasy.
- Condition the ends
Most people make the mistake of applying conditioner all over the head. This is a big NO if you want oil free hair. Applying conditioner from the root to tip will not only make your scalp greasy but will way your hair down as well. So, only apply conditioner from mid lengths to the roots to get that silky hair look.
- Use dry shampoo
This is a great product for avoiding having to shampoo for people with very oily hair. All you have to do is sprinkle some dry shampoo on your head and work it into your hair and scalp. Not only will the dry shampoo suck up oil from your scalp and hair shaft but it will also give you more time to do without shampooing. This will also make hair less greasy in the long run through decreased oil production in the scalp.
- Reduce brushing
This is a must for having silky and oil free hair. Over brushing the hair causes damage to hair shaft making it rough. This is will make your hair frizzy and puffy. Moreover, brushing frequently shall also stimulate oil production and distribute oil along the hair making it greasy. Try and keep the brushing to only once a day after washing and drying your hair.
- Choose products wisely
To have the very best hair that you can have, you need to choose your products wisely. This needs to be based on scalp type, hair type and so on. So, always chose products such as shampoos and conditioners that balance your hair and scalp. Mild and natural products are always good in the long run. Avoid using mousse, gel, wax and other products that cause build up.
