The summer months are truly blissful with their warm weather. Unfortunately, summer fun comes with some complications related to health. Moreover, hair damage is also high in the summer months. The hot weather of summer makes your hair dry, brittle and vulnerable to breakage, which is why your hair fall increases a bit in summer.
The summer heat dehydrates your body, making your scalp dry and itchy. When you repeatedly scratch your scalp so hard, it can damage hair follicles or slows down hair growth which eventually makes your hair weak and thin.
Here are some reasons for your hair to fall out during the warmer months.
The Hot Sun
When we go out in the hot sun, we tend to expose our heads to UV rays from the sun, which is one of the main reasons behind hair loss in summer. The UV rays emitted from the sun can do a lot of damage to your hair; it absorbs every trace of moisture from your hair and scalp, making your hair dull, dry, and discoloured. We know dry hair is more fragile and breaks easily. To prevent this, wear a cap or scarf or use an umbrella and protect your hair.
To get relief from the summer heat, most of you go swimming, where your hair is exposed to chlorine in swimming pools. The chemical properties of chlorine dry out your hair and make it dull, brittle, and prone to breakage. Wear protective caps while swimming, or apply some olive or coconut oil to keep it moisturized.
Hot weather aggravates dandruff. Higher temperatures create an ideal environment for dandruff-causing germs (Malassezia globossa) to thrive. If you neglect it, dandruff makes your scalp itchy, irritated and eventually, temporary hair loss occurs. So, use an anti-dandruff shampoo or follow any other measures suggested by your hair specialist doctor in summer.
Our hair comes into contact with water more frequently than usual in summer, as we do head baths more frequently. If your hair is wet with water, it is best not to tie or brush it since wet hair is more likely to break. The best way is to run your fingers gently through the hair to detangle it. In addition, you can also use high-quality shampoos, which are formulated with Nutrilock ingredients to strengthen your roots and reduce hair loss.
Air Conditioners are the worst enemy for your hair. Unfortunately, in summer, we use AC more often. The air conditioner absorbs moisture from your hair roots and makes them dry, leading to breakage. To prevent this, you may use hair conditioners or moisturizing hair masks at least once a week.
However, you can take certain preventive steps to avoid hair fall in summer. All you have to do is consult a hair care specialist and follow suggested preventive measures. Also, show your hair some TLC(“Tender, Loving Care”) before you do anything that damages your hair. Try the following natural methods to control your hair fall in this hot summer.
