Although we are glad to be just weeks away from summer, the strong sun, high temperatures and the humidity in the air are factors that will affect our locks leading to the appearance of dry, frizzy hair, hard to care for and arrange. No matter what hair type you have, in the summer the hair will suffer unless you follow few simple steps to keep it healthy and hydrated.
1.Wash your hair twice a week
In summer washing your hair has to happen once every couple of days to allow your hair to absorb the natural oils of the scalp. If it seems to you that you can not skip washing your hair daily, it is imperative to switch to a natural moisturising shampoo because during the warm season the hair needs a more delicate care than in the rest of the years. It is important to choose a shampoo containing natural ingredients or at least choose a shampoo with a very gentle formula. As much as possible, try to rinse your hair with cold water to straighten hair cuticles.
2.Opt for natural products
During the warm season, the hair has a tendency to dehydrate, so it is best to limit the number of chemicals
you use on your hair (hair dyes, hair straightening chemicals, styling products).
Depending on the type of hair, its texture and its condition, you can take into account the fact that it is beneficial to avoid hair care products that contain ingredients known to dry hair ( parabens, different types of alcohol, perfumes) Choose to use natural hair care products with a high percentage of natural ingredients that will protect, moisturise and nourish your locks.
3. Stay away from the styling devices that use heat
If you normally use heat to style your hair (dry, straighten, curling) take a break during the summer. Try to let your hair dry naturally or opt for simpler hairstyles, for which you do not need a dryer or a curler.
4. Do not skip on your hydration sessions
Hair frequently exposed to heat regularly needs treatments that will intensely hydrate it. Use quality masks appropriate to your hair type, or choose to use homemade masks. Leave hair products to act for at least half an hour to get into dehydrated hair. Try Coolherbals Spa Hair Masque containing mineral-rich Gopichand Clay in a marine extract base. Its natural ingredients help with dry itchy scalps, lifeless hair, split ends and lustreless hair.
5. Look out for split ends
Hair oils and hair serum are the perfect ally in the fight with split ends. Applied to clean, dry or wet hair, hair oils will provide protection throughout the day. Natural oils are also recognized for their beneficial effects on hair, including the prevention of split ends, improving hair thinning and dehydration.

6. Do not forget to trim your hair regularly
During the summer you will notice that it becomes almost obligatory to trim a few centimetres of hair once every 4-6 weeks. Hair can be sunburned just like skin. The only way to get rid of burned and degraded hair is to trim the affected locks otherwise the hair does not recover.
7. Hydration in the first place
To have a shiny healthy hair it’s not enough to apply moisturising products. Hydration is obtained to a large extent from inside, so make sure you drink enough fluids, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, and take vitamins so the scalp skin is well hydrated and your hair grows healthy and beautiful. Water is always the best choice.
