5 Natural Tips to Protect Your Hair During Summer
Tip #1. Protect your hair from the sun's rays
Vitamin D plays a crucial role in hair health. Vitamin D deficiency can lead to hair loss as well as dull hair. When our bodies lack vitamin D, hair follicles weaken, which can lead to reduced hair regrowth.
A recent study also found that lack of vitamin D can lead to increased sebum production on the scalp. This creates a real vicious circle, because the oilier our hair is, the more frequently we tend to wash it. However, over-washing can cause hair to dry out, making it more brittle and prone to falling out.
But then how can we really protect them?
- Wear a hat ! Simple but effective
- An all-natural protective oil such as sesame oil
Tip #2. Rinse with spring water after swimming
After swimming in the sea or pool, rinse your hair with spring water or filtered water to remove salt or chlorine. These elements can dry out your hair and make it brittle. Rinsing with clean water will help preserve your hair's natural moisture.
Tip #3. Use apple cider vinegar to remove residue
Hair products, seawater and chlorine can leave residue on your hair. To eliminate them naturally, mix one part apple cider vinegar with two parts water. After your usual shampoo, use this mixture as a final rinse. Apple cider vinegar will help remove residue and rebalance the pH of your hair.
Tip #4. Avoid tight hairstyles
During the summer, opt for relaxed hairstyles and avoid styles that are too tight which can cause tension and breakage. Leave your hair free or opt for loose braids or low buns to protect your hair while still looking stylish. This will also allow your hair to breathe and enjoy the fresh air.
Tip #5. Balanced diet for healthy hair
Remember that the health of your hair also depends on your diet. During the summer, choose a diet rich in essential nutrients such as vitamins A, C, E, omega-3 fatty acids and proteins. Include foods such as green vegetables, fresh fruits, nuts, seeds, oily fish and eggs in your diet to nourish your hair from the inside out.
Bonus: During the summer, hair certainly grows and we must not forget that after summer there is autumn. With leaf fall comes hair loss.
Remember that your hair deserves special attention throughout the year, and especially during periods of seasonal change. Prevent hair loss by regularly integrating oil baths into your hair routine, and trust the ROOTS Growth Booster duo for optimal results.
