Protect coloured hair from summer sun

Darpan News Desk IANS, 04 Jun, 2019
  • Protect coloured hair from summer sun

People with coloured hair need to take extra care during summer as there is a possibility of the colour fading faster, says experts.

Here are a few tips by Sameer Hamdare - Technical Manager, Streax Professional, and Shuba Dharmana, dermatologist, Lejeune Medspa Bengaluru, for coloured hair during summer:

* Choose hair care products made especially for colour treated hair eg. colour safe shampoo and conditioner, use serum or live-in conditioner with SPF and UV protection specially for coloured hair.

* Try to avoid exposing your hair to direct sunlight as much as possible as it may fade your hair colour. You can cover it up with a cool scarf or a cap.

* Also use a wide-tooth comb to avoid breakage.

* If you have colour-treated hair or chemically processed damaged hair, a sulphate free shampoo is a lot gentler. Curly, frizzy hair retains a lot more moisture with a sulphate free shampoo. Other shampoos that have sulphates can strip the hair and scalp of its natural oils and make it dry.

* If you have dry, flaky scalp opt for regular hot oil massages. Leave the oil in for 40 minutes and wash off.

* Eat iron and calcium rich foods. Ensure you are eating enough protein.

* Minimise stress. Get a good eight hours sleep every day.
