Must-know Summer Hair Care Tips & Routine for Sun, Fun, & Fabulous Hair:
The Sunkissed season, Summer, is officially here! And while we're all ready to hit the beach and soak up the sun, our hair may not be as excited as we are. Spending too many hours directly under the heat of the sun or taking a dip in the pool can be harmful to your hair. The combination of heat, humidity and exposure to the sun can cause our hair to become dry, frizzy, and prone to damage.
But it’s impossible to deny oneself the joys of summer, so fear not, following the right summer hair care tips and adopting a special summer hair care routine might just do the trick!
Summer Hair Care Tips
Here Are Some Essential Summer Hair Care Tips To Keep In Mind:
1. Loose Hair Braids
Braiding your hair messily and loosely is a great way to tackle the summer heat as it not only minimises perspiration but also limits its exposure to the sun. Moreover, a messy braid will not pull on or cause any damage to dry hair.

2. Condition Regularly
For starters, know that simply shampooing your hair is not enough. You must also complement it with a sulphate-free conditioners to make the most of your summer haircare routine. Conditioning adds moisture to hair and prevents breakage during summer.
3. Avoid Heat Styling
Thanks to the scorching heat of the sun, your hair is exposed plenty already. So, it’s best to avoid using tools like hairdryers, straighteners, or curling irons as they might cause further damage to your strands.
4. Cover Your Hair
Lastly, keep in mind that physically keeping your hair protected is an equally important task of your hair care routine in summer. Don a trendy hat if possible or simply cover up your hair with a scarf when it’s directly under the sun and you’re good to go!
Summer Haircare Routine:
Here’s A Summer Haircare Routine Created By Our Experts For You To Comfortably Get Through The Season:
1. Shampoo Your Hair
Summer means you’re constantly sweating. Moreover, the accumulation of sweat on your scalp might lead to the settlement of dust and dirt. In such a situation, washing and keeping your scalp free of sweat and dirt can make all the difference! While washing your hair, consider using hair shampoo that contain natural extracts and guarantee nourished hair.
To that effect, you can use the Probio Honey Moisture Shampoo which is perfect to revive your summer locks!
The two key ingredients of the Honey Moisture Shampoo are, as the name says, honey and nourishing oils. The honey helps in retaining moisture in the hair and acts as an effective cleanser as it has antimicrobial properties. Honey also makes the hair follicles smooth adding shine to your dull hair. So using this honey moisture shampoo is the best way to reduce dryness from the heat and make your hair soft, bouncy and youthful again.
2. Apply Mask to Control The Frizz
Uncontrollable frizz is an unfortunate downside of summer. The humidity in the air can easily make your hair frizzy and dry beyond control. This is because dry hair tends to attract moisture in the air. This moisture then enters the hair cuticles and causes them to swell, making the hair look frizzy. The best way to avoid this is by using hair care products that help tame frizzy hair.
Consider using the Godrej Professional Probio Quinoa Smooth Mask which will ensure your frizzy hair is nourished and restore its sheen throughout your beachy dips.
The primary ingredient of this mask is hydrolyzed quinoa which is well-known for promoting hair health. It’s a humectant that nourishes the hair by keeping it moisturised. This mask is also rich in minerals and amino acids that helps condition the hair and even strengthen it resulting in healthy hair and an amazing shine.
3. Apply Serum to Protect Your Hair From Heat
Protecting your locks from the sun’s harsh UV rays is very important if you want healthy and beautiful summer hair. Consider donning a hat or covering your head with a scarf each time you step out into the scorching heat. You can also use hair care products that have UV-protect ingredients.
We suggest using the Godrej Professional Probio Keratin Revive Protect & Shine Serum which is enriched with elements that can protect your hair from the harmful UV rays of the sun. This product in your summer haircare routine will not only control the frizz but also protect it from harmful UV rays.
4. Use Oil for Extra Care
Adding the enhanced nourishment of oil might just be a game-changer for your summer hair. All you have to do is apply oil to your damp or dry hair for an extra coating of strength and shine.
It's recommended to consider using the Nourish Shine Argan Hair Oil from Godrej Professional’s range of hair oils to add a protective layer around your hair strands. It is infused with UV protect ingredients along with the beneficial nutrients of argan.
