Summer Hair Care Guide: Essential Tips for Gorgeous Locks
Summer is a season of sun-kissed days and beach escapades, but it also brings challenges for your hair. The heat, humidity, and frequent dips in the pool or the sea can wreak havoc on your tresses. However, with the right care and a few simple tricks, you can keep your hair looking healthy, luscious, and vibrant all summer long. In this comprehensive guide, we'll explore four vital hair care practices that will safeguard your locks during the hottest months of the year.
Rejuvenate with a Scalp Scrub
The foundation of healthy hair begins at the scalp. Over time, it accumulates product buildup, sweat, and pollutants that can hinder hair growth and lead to irritation. Enter the scalp scrub, a refreshing treatment that gently exfoliates the scalp, removing impurities, and promoting a clean and balanced environment for hair growth. Regularly incorporating a scalp scrub into your hair care routine will help improve blood circulation, reduce flakes, and alleviate itching caused by sweat and product residue.
To make your own scalp scrub, combine the following:
100g soft brown sugar
30g avocado oil
10g castor oil
Lightly dampen roots with a water spray bottle. Massage the scrub into your scalp using your fingertips, not your nails, really working it in all over your scalp.
Wash and condition as normal. You may need to shampoo twice to remove all the oil from your scalp.
Nourish and Hydrate with Scalp Oiling
Summer's heat and humidity can leave your scalp and hair feeling dry and lifeless. Enter scalp oiling, a time honoured practice that infuses much-needed nourishment and moisture into your hair and scalp. By using natural oils, you can provide essential nutrients and hydration to your strands, combatting the damaging effects of the sun and sea salt. Scalp oiling also creates a protective barrier, shielding your hair from environmental stressors, while stimulating healthy hair growth. Incorporate this luxurious self-care ritual into your weekly routine for stronger, more resilient hair all summer.
To make your own scalp oil combine:
0.3g essential oils
Mix all the ingredients together and transfer to a bottle.
Apply the oil directly to the scalp along your parting and massaging it in.
Then continue making new partings out from the centre, applying oil and massaging each time. Once all the scalp is covered, massage the whole of your scalp with your fingertips, cover with a towel or old t-shirt and leave for at least an hour, or if you want to you can leave it overnight and wash and condition as normal the following day.
