Haircare Tips For Warmer Weather

While you should take good care of your hair at any given time, come the warmer months, it becomes more critical.

The sunny weather lifts spirits, but now you need to get it ready to brave the humidity and climate changes that are heading your way.

The best way to prepare begins with what you eat to the types of products and styles you wear. 

What Hair Care Products Should I Use?

Choosing the right hair care products is something every woman ponders. Advertisements bombard us with different choices and applications making it hard to find the best products to use.

Finding the best products begins with understanding your hair’s texture and natural state. If you doubt your choice of shampoo, here are some tips and details that can help. 

First, you need to choose products based on your hair type and texture rather than following the recommendations of people whose hair may not be the same as yours. 

Here’s some helpful tips:

1. Dry, Coarse Hair

If you have dry hair then you should use a hydrating shampoo. Look for creamy, moisturising products with ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter, grape-seed oil, etc. These ingredient types trap the water inside your hair by forming a coat on the hair shaft.

Deep conditioners with essential oils and fatty alcohols are the best for hydrating your hair and getting it smooth and well-moisturised.

2.Oily & Fine Hair

Stay away from shampoos that have moisturising or deep conditioning properties. Otherwise, you may aggravate the issue, particularly during springtime. 

Instead, go for products specially designed for your hair type.

Clarifying and clear shampoos with ingredients like wheat protein are the best to remove excess oil from the scalp and hair. Add a volumising shampoo to make your hair look fuller and bouncier.

Choose lightweight conditioners and use the right amount to avoid making your hair feel greasy. A leave-in-conditioner is an excellent alternative to keep your curls hydrated and fresh.

3.Curly Hair

If you have curly hair you’ll often have problems managing your locks, and the humidity in spring and summer can give you a harrowing time.

Most curly hair is thick and dry, so go for a luxurious shampoo with natural ingredients like shea butter. Remember that harsh chemicals can make your hair drier, so avoid products where you see chemical additives listed as ingredients.  

Conditioners that have proteins and silicone work best on thick and curly tresses. For frizz control, choose products with soothing, moisturising ingredients like wheat protein and soy.

4.Colour-Treated Hair

Colouring your hair can prove at times to be expensive, so you don’t want it to fade sooner than it has to. Colour-preserving shampoos with fewer chemicals are the safest bet. These shampoos also keep your hair well hydrated and shiny.

For a conditioner, pick one designed for colour-treated hair. Usually, these contain sunscreen-like UV filters that protect your hair and make the colour stay on for longer.

It’s no secret that harsh chemicals do a lot of damage, so avoid products that contain sulphate, ammonium, and sulphur. Read the labels on shampoo and conditioner bottles thoroughly to ensure you are choosing a healthy option.

5.Frizzy Hair

Frizzy hair is a common problem in humid weather conditions. 

Refrain from using heating products like a flat iron as these add further damage. Instead, go for hair mousse or gels that have polymers or copolymers—ingredients that coat your hair to fight the frizz.

Co-Washing & Can It Help?

The chances are that you have already heard of this trend. Co-washing is conditioner-only washing, without using shampoo. It’s cleaning hair only with conditioner.

The method retains your scalp’s natural oils more compared to using shampoo. It’s a good option for those with dry, thick, or curly hair. 

However, if your hair type is oily or you have scalp problems, co-washing is not for you. 

Regardless, keep a check on your hair texture. Talk to your professional stylist, and have an occasional wash using a gentle shampoo to clean your scalp and hair if you plan to co-wash regularly.
