Keep your hair healthy and shiny this sea­son

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle -

Sum­mer is ap­proach­ing, and you know what that means for your hair—dry, dull and pos­si­bly greasy hair. How­ever, with a lit­tle care, this doesn’t have to be a sea­son of bad hair days. Ex­pert Man­isha Chopra who’s a se­nior con­sul­tant, der­ma­tol­ogy, has listed down few tips for you which you can swear by this sea­son.

Cover up: The dust and pol­lu­tion causes dull hair. So, cover up your head with a scarf when you’re step­ping out of the house. Don't wash too much: We

tend to wash our hair too fre­quently than re­quired ow­ing to the greasy, itchy scalp. But be care­ful not to do it too much since it can lead

to a dry scalp and your hair may lose its nat­u­ral oils and mois­ture.

Hair dry: Dur­ing sum­mer, avoid us­ing hair dry­ers or styling prod­ucts since the weather is al­ready adding to the fuzzi­ness and dry­ness of your hair. Let your hair dry nat­u­rally in or­der to have healthy shiny hair.

Eat right and stay

hy­drated: Eat­ing right works well for a healthy body and mind, but also for our hair es­pe­cially in sum­mers. Eat fruits and veg­eta­bles with high wa­ter con­tent, fi­bre con­tent like mel­ons, car­rots and spinach and drink plenty of wa­ter to keep them hy­drated as well as shiny from the root to the tips.

Use a mois­tur­is­ing sham­poo dur­ing sum­mers to pre­vent hair dry­ing, and don't for­get to use a con­di­tioner.

If you colour your hair, don’t do it at short gaps as it dam­ages the hair.

Don't leave oil in your hair for too long as it can give rise to fol­li­culi­tis or hair root in­fec­tions.
