With the onset of summer, your health issues take a new turn. You’re marred by summer-related problems like dehydration, sun tan and most importantly, hair loss.
There may be various reasons for hair loss, including poor nutrition, diabetes, recovery from a major disease or pollution.
We all know that gorgeous flowing locks are sure shot head turners. And a little bit of pampering is it takes to achieve a shiny and smooth hair texture. Although shampoos help you clear the excessive grime and dirt from your hair, a good massage with hair oils followed by cleaning can definitely do the trick to achieve a glossy mane.
Given the heat and humidity in the Indian subcontinent, many avoid oiling, believing it makes the hair sticky and dirty.
But to save your hair from a major loss, you need to oil your hair every day.
Here are some useful hair oils that are recommended for sleek and healthy hair during the summers.
The dry and intense summer heat makes your hair dry and frizzy. In order to tame your unkempt hair, coconut oil works out as the best nourishment.
Coconut oil has essential fatty acids and vitamins that go deep into your scalp and remove sebum from the hair follicles. Moreover, coconut oil is rich in antioxidants and has antifungal and antibacterial properties. It also strengthens your hair roots and is free from any chemicals.
Amla or gooseberry is replete with vitamin C and provides huge benefits for both your skin and hair. Amla oil is concocted by dipping amla into any traditionally used oil.
Amla oil prevents premature greying of hair, dandruff and works as an excellent hair conditioner, adding both colour and texture to your bold tresses.
This miracle oil is native to Morocco and is derived from the kernel of the Argan tree. Argan oil is rich in Vitamin E, phenols, unsaturated fatty acids and carotene that softens frizzy hair, treats split ends and protects hair from UV rays.
Due to its non-greasy texture, it acts as an amazing shine booster and works best on damp hair.
Almond oil contains all the valuable ingredients that are essential to curb hair loss. It’s rich in Omega 6 fatty acids, phospholipids, vitamin E and magnesium. Almond oil helps strengthen your hair roots and detangles hair strands.
Not only does it improve blood circulation and stimulate growth from dormant hair follicles, but it also repairs damage caused due to styling tools such as curling irons and straighteners.
The remarkable effects of jojoba oil were discovered in the early 40s. This oil acts as a great moisturiser and prevents your hair strands from breaking or drying up. Jojoba oil fights against bacterial and fungal diseases due to its high content of iodine, while the vitamin E and B in it retains moisture in your hair.
Apply some of these wonderful oils to your hair see the results yourself. Don’t let the harsh summer steal your hair gloss. Instead, get a soothing massage with one of these hair oils.
Watch as your locks shine and sway in the summer daylight and win accolades from everyone around you.
