The harsh and dry weather in summer play spoilsport on our hair. While most women tackle this ‘hair-raising’ summer woe with ease, men continue to remain clueless about hair care in summer. MetroMela speaks with Suresh, one of the leading hairstylists in Mysore and the owner of Macho Hair Dressers, for some useful hair care tips for men…
First and foremost, get your hair done in a comfortable and easy-to-maintain style.
In summer, wash your hair regularly to avoid dirt and sweat settling on the scalp, which can lead to dandruff and hair damage and breakage.
Also, stick to a short hairdo, to avoid these problems and to also keep the resulting itching and irritation of your scalp at arm’s length.
Avoid coloring your hair in summer, since hair tends to lose its natural shine and it also becomes susceptible to shedding.
Preferably, use herbal-based shampoos and conditioners, twice a week, to protect hair from turning dry and frizzy.
Also, for frizzy hair, use either gel or any other styling product. But make sure that you do not overuse the same.
Apply oil thrice a week to protect your scalp.
Warp a scarf over your hair when it is windy to avoid tangles, knots and breakages of your hair.
Choose a hairbrush with soft teeth to avoid damage to scalp while combing.
A diet that is rich in protein, complex carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals is essential for healthy hair.
