Dandruff and oily hair are a bit tough to manage and especially during summers. The heat makes us sweat and heavy sweating makes our hair more dirty and sticky and on top of that if you have oily hair then it is more difficult to take care of them during summers.
The dust and dirt sticks to them very easily and it is very tough to keep them clean during summers. A summer is the season when the sebaceous glands become more active on our scalp and secrete a lot of sebum which make sour hair more sticky and oily during summers. When the scalp remains dirty it starts producing dandruff and it starts sticking to our scalp due to oil in the scalp.
This sticky dandruff if not taken care of leads to itchy scalp and ringworm infection can also develop during summers which will cause excessive hair fall. So it is very important to take care of hair during summers and keep them perfectly clean because everyone wants to sport beautiful and glossy hair to look beautiful.
Daily hair care routine
During summers you should clean your scalp and hair with nice shampoo twice in a week and if you are a working woman and move out in the sun then your scalp will get dirtier so you should wash your hair three times in a week.
Conditioning is also very important for all types of hair and a good conditioner should be applied once in a week to keep your hair healthy and untangled.
If you wash your hair more than two times in a week then use a mild shampoo like an herbal shampoo or a natural shampoo is best. The conditioner should also be mild and if possible you can use a good hair mask which is available in market.
If you have dandruff problem then always use an anti-dandruff shampoo. After applying shampoo and conditioner always rinse them with water thoroughly so that no shampoo is left on your scalp. Any shampoo or conditioner if left will give rise to more dandruff.
Always try using herbal based shampoo because detergent based shampoo will give instant cleaning but too much use of these shampoos will harm your scalp. Always apply conditioner to the hair lengthwise and never to the scalp and the right way to apply conditioner is on wet hair when they are drip dry means no water should be dripping from your hair.
Apply hair mask on your hair after every 15 days. Using hair mask will help in cleaning your scalp and it will remove dandruff from hair and reduce the oiliness too thus your hair will not look sticky.
Remember to wash your hair with cold water always because hot or warm water will make your skin more dry thus producing more dandruff on your scalp. So cool or normal water is the best for rinsing your hair.
