Just as you swap your outfits as a new season arrives, you should also evolve your hair care. Utilizing a too-light conditioner when the air is chilly and dry will not provide your hair with the necessary care. Here’s how seasonal changes affect your hair and what modifications you can make to your routine to help your hair adapt.
When you add sun to the equation (regardless of season), hair suffers from a new set of issues, notably due to UV exposure. As you travel the seasons in search of cooperative, perfectly balanced hair, keep these changing environmental conditions in mind.
Here are some advice from Beauty Garage team on maintaining your hair balanced year round, despite primary environmental hurdles, to learn about seasonal hair care and the priorities that develop with the calendar year.When it’s cold and dry
When the air is dry, it draws moisture from any source it can find, including your skin and hair. That’s why we get chapped knuckles and parched hair in the winter.
The best dry hair products for reviving and fortifying parched strands: This is followed by a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. Following that, a weekly deep-conditioning hair mask, heat-styling protectants, and potentially a leave-in conditioner or hair oil are recommended.
Considering the environment in which you live (as well as what time of year it is). So, if it’s winter, you’d probably add extra-hydrating chemicals like hyaluronic acid and a potpourri of oils like Argan, Sacha, and jojoba to your hair care regime. A lack of moisture can also weaken hair by making strands more brittle and prone to snapping.When it’s warm and humid
Because you can feel the moisture in the air when it’s humid, it’s your hair strands’ turn to pull in the surplus water, as opposed to the problem you have in cold, dry months. (This is especially problematic if your hair is porous, whether naturally or as a result of chemical processing or frequent heat styling.) As hair absorbs moisture from humid air, it expands, resulting in the headache we all know as frizz. Worse, wet air can increase moisture on the scalp, providing a breeding ground for bacteria.
First and foremost, consider shorter intervals between shampooing. Humidity and heat may cause a lot of damage to your hair, We normally recommend shampooing every other day or two, because our hair can become more sweaty and oily than usual.
To treat frizz, use hair care products that have substances that smooth and close the cuticle of the hair (its outermost, protective layer). This makes it more difficult for your strands to absorb extra water, preventing your hair from frizzing out of control.
Formulas containing hair-repair chemicals also reduce frizz by reinforcing weak places along each strand and limiting how much moisture can get in. They work together to heal damaged and weakened hair, while also keeping out undesirable water.
To reduce the inflammatory impact of bacteria on the scalp, use a shampoo designed to deep-clean scalp skin. In this scenario, we recommend pre-shampoo scalp treatments since they limit excessive oils and help eliminate flakes and bacteria build-up.When it’s extra sunny
Just as your skin requires protection from dangerous UV radiation (all year), your hair requires protection from sun damage. While many of us think of hair as a barrier for our scalps, it’s also important to protect the strands themselves from direct UV exposure.
To begin, wear a hat whenever feasible, especially during the sun’s hottest hours (between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.). While it’s impractical to urge you not to go outside during the brightest portion of the day, keep in mind that this is also when you should beef up your sun protection approach. One method is to utilise hair care products that counteract the damaging effects of the sun.
Beauty Garage suggests of first, applying a lightweight leave-in conditioning spray when you know you’ll be in the sun. Oil can also be a good moisture keeper on days when you are out in the sun for an extended amount of time. Most of the time, our hair isn’t styled when we’re out in the sun, so even if the oil weighs your hair down a little, it will work as a sunscreen for your fragile strands. It’s a powerful barrier against the sun’s heat and UV damage, as well as the extreme heat of a blow-dryer.
For hair care products to be used in a hot climate, wheat and soy amino acids, as well as arginine are used to reduce the drying effects of heat; coconut and karanja oils to provide an extra protective (and hydrating) layer; and oat lipid and sunflower seed extract to protect your hair color and reduce oxidation and fading.
On hot days, keep track of how much time your hair is exposed to salt water or chlorinated water. Chlorine and salt water can also be very drying on the hair, Use conditioner frequently and follow up with a leave-in spray. The more moisture there is, the better!
Don’t tie your hair back when it’s damp, either, Allow it to dry completely before putting it up, or your ponytail holders will shatter.
