Well, now that summer has taken over, you need to rock the hairstyles you always dreamt of, without hassles. So, let’s get down to the crux of the matter. Here’s the summer hair care routine that you need to follow:

A] Use the Right Shampoo

Shampooing your hair keeps it clean and adds volume to it. With summer comes the sweat and dirt that makes your hair all dirty and dry. So, to keep it clean and maintain your hair quality and hygiene during summer, make sure you shampoo your hair at least twice a week. Pick a shampoo that will help you battle hair fall while also keeping your hair healthy. We recommend Pantene's Advance Hairfall Solution - Hairfall Control shampoo because it comes with Provitamin formula that nourishes your hair from the inside and strengthens it against hair fall**.

Make sure you wash your scalp rather than using loads of shampoo on your hair. If you wash your scalp nicely, your hair will automatically get rinsed.

B] Use the right conditioner

Summer brings humidity, so using the right conditioner to hydrate, moisturize and restore your hair's vitality is essential. Pantene's Advanced Hairfall Solution Conditioner is recommended because its Provitamin formula nourishes and moisturizes your hair from root to tip, keeping humidity at bay. Because during summers, your hair gets all dry, it is very important to moisturize it with the right conditioner post your shampoo routine. A very strong tip to protect your hair during summer is to cover it when you are out. Wear a scarf or a cap that goes with your OOTD and look super cool while protecting your hair.

C] Avoid frequent hair washing

Humidity, heat, and sweating can prompt you to develop a habit of frequent hair-washing. Though you would feel extremely relaxed after every hair wash during summer, but, the natural oil level in your hair would reduce leading to them getting damaged and unmanageable. Hence, as a best practice, cut down the number of hair washes during hot weather to prevent hair frizziness.

D] The right post- wash regime

When we wash our hair, there are times when we aggressively try to dry it out. During summer, hair gets weak because of all the sweat, dryness, and heat. So, when you’re out from a shower let your hair dry as naturally as possible. If you want to dry it a bit with a towel, do it gently. Always make sure that you use a good shampoo and moisturize your hair well with a conditioner as it acts like sunscreen for your hair and protects your hair during summer.

E] Slow down on the heat

The heat of summer dries out your hair, while the humidity dehydrates it. As a result, avoid using style irons and curlers after you've washed your hair. If you must use them, make sure to wash your hair half an hour ahead of time to provide enough time for it to dry. You can use some natural ways to style your hair but avoid using hair stylers on a regular basis.

F] Say bye to split ends

Summer does a lot of damage to the tips of your hair, resulting in split ends and dry tips. To minimize further damage, make sure you trim your hair at regular intervals to maintain a fresh cut and reduce split ends. Split ends not only make your hair look all frizzy but also cause hair breakage and dryness. Following the right summer hair care routine can reduce the split ends and keep your hair fresh and summer-ready!

G] Shield your hair from swimming damage

When it comes to hair damage, chlorine extends the biggest contribution. This chemical element (present in swimming pool) weakens hair, causes split ends, strips away the natural oil from the hair and sparks chemical reactions within it. As a result, you may notice a change in your hair colour and experience hair fall during summer. Hence, it is recommended to wear a swimming cap, wash your hair and avoid dryers post-swimming.

H] Protect your tresses from the sun

The sweltering summer season casts negative effects on your beautiful locks. Hence, to protect your hair from harmful UV rays and to ensure that the hair moisture is retained consistently, you must cover your hair by wearing a scarf or a hat. Women’s hat especially a sun hat (that comes with a wide brim around the circumference) or fedora can give you optimal protection from the sun and damage caused by wind. Those who have colour-treated hair which are prone to tangling must cover their hair whenever they step out in the sun.

I] Drink lots of fluids

Ever heard of the quote ‘Hydration is the key?’, if not, let us say the five important words: Hydration is actually the key! Even if you follow the above summer hair care routine, you still have to drink enough water and maintain a balanced diet. As a practice, throughout the summer, try to drink enough fluids and eat nutritious meals to keep yourself and your hair hydrated.

J] Oil treatment

Your hair is at its best when it’s moisturized. Having a simple oil treatment at home can help it rejuvenate. Just take a few drops of oil and massage it on your scalp for about 10 minutes. Let your hair breathe for an hour and rinse it off with the right shampoo followed by a conditioner. For a good summer hair care routine, you can try the Pantene 2in1 from the Advanced Hairfall Solution range that has the goodness of both shampoo and conditioner in one so that your wash takes less time and effort and gives amazing results.

During summer, your hair gets thinner and even more brittle. So, it is very important for you to shampoo and condition it properly while keeping it clean and healthy. Experience the power of bamboo with the Pantene Bamboo shampoo that gives your hair strength* and flexibility and helps reduce hair fall**.

So, while you’re all ready with your summer dresses and vacation plans with your besties, rock every outfit by styling your gorgeous hair and taking good care of it because summers are meant to be fun!
