5 Tips to Deal with Harsh Summer Weather

by Carson Life March 26, 2018

Summer is the time to enjoy and have some outdoor fun in most parts of the world. Water sports and activities are a staple of summer vacations. While you are having fun in the salty sea water or swimming in the chlorinated swimming pool – it is important to take care of your hair. It does not matter how long you stay in the pool for, the copper and chlorine will do the damage nonetheless. They oxidize and cause your hair to lose color. Chlorine breaks apart the top cuticle layer of your hair causing them to become brittle the longer you stay in the pool. You know how your hair feels after an hour of swimming in the pool – that’s chlorine taking its toll on their health.

The dirt your hair collects on the beach is another big problem. While it is said that washing too much can damage your hair, washing too little can cause the dirt on your scalp to become gunk a few days later. And that sun shining on your head beats down your hair keratin, making your hair look lifeless. Thanks to that cruel humidity in the air, summers can become a nightmare for women with curly hair because of the worsening frizz. Last but not least, the scorching heat of the sun is nothing less than the hot air from your blow dryer. The UV rays along with wind deprive your hair of any moisture and what you get as a result is split ends.

While the situation can be quite frustrating, there isn’t a problem without a solution. Mentioned below are 5 very easy and important tips you should implement to keep your hair healthy this summer:

5 Ways to Bring Life Back to Your Damaged Hair in Summer

1.     Use Coconut Milk Mask

Coconut milk

Coconut milk is one of the best hair repairing products because of its high content of vitamins, folate and niacin. The fat in coconut milk can also provide your hair with a layer that protects every strand from the scorching heat of the sun. There are many treatments for damaged hair that use coconut milk as the main ingredient. In one of the methods you would heat coconut milk in the pan for 3 to 5 minutes. The pan should already be heated before you put milk in it. Put the milk at room temperature for it to cool down.

After the milk has cooled down, put it in the freezer. Let the milk freeze for one night. Now, take 4 tablespoons of this coconut milk and mix it with 2 tablespoons of honey. Apply this smooth mixture on your head and massage it gently on the scalp and on to the tips of your hair. Once applied, use a shower cap to protect your hair for the next one hour. Remove the shower cap and wash your hair completely. In another method, you would mix coconut milk with yogurt and camphor. Repeat any of the methods at least once a week to see your hair healthy, shiny and soft. 


2.     Mayonnaise Treatment

Known as the best salad dressing, mayonnaise can do wonders for your hair. The treat is pretty simple as you don’t need anything other than mayonnaise. You would ideally need half a cup of mayonnaise to cover your head. When applying mayonnaise, slather it on your head and work your way to the tips of your hairs. Do not massage harshly if you have light and weak hair since this can result in hair breakage. Focus more on the tips of your hair. Once applied, put a shower cap on and let mayonnaise do its work for half an hour. Wash your hair thoroughly to make sure the oily effect of the mayonnaise is gone.

Repeat this process at least once every week to get the best results. You can also mix almond oil and eggs in mayonnaise if you want to particularly work on the frizz of your hair. The end result will be soft, silky and shiny hair that every woman dreams of.

3.     Say No to Hair Styling Tools

Some hair drying tools can be very damaging for your hair more so when you use them frequently. Curling tools, irons and blow dryers are among the top hair styling components that can damage your hair. Now, if you already have damaged hair, they will worsen the problem for you. This is why it is highly recommended that you limit their use till your hair is healthy again. Try various treatments mentioned here to repair your hair first.

The best way to dry your hair is through natural air. However, if you have to use the blow dryer, try using it at the lowest setting possible. Fortifying leave-in conditioners are often recommended to prevent hair damage after you blow dry or iron your hair, but you can never be too sure about this type of protection.  

4.     Eat the Right Diet

It is a proven fact that no topical solution will work for you unless you are fit from the inside. The most important thing for your hair, skin and nail health is the diet you take. If you are fit internally, you will be fit externally as well. There are certain foods that you should eat more in order to keep your hair healthy. As a first rule, you should avoid stuff that’s too oily, greasy, sugary and starchy. Alcohol is also damaging for your hair and so is anything that is deep fried.

Some of the best foods for your hair include almond butter, spinach, tangerines, Greek yogurt, salmon, eggs, guava, etc. You should also include foods with omega-3 fatty acids in your diet. When it comes to vegetables, you should pick more and more of those leafy greens. Lean meat is a great choice, and as for dairy ditch high fat products and replace it with low-fat dairy food items. Keep in mind that the real energy your hair gets is from the inside i.e. the blood circulating and carrying nutrients to every organ of the body.

You can’t expect your hair to be healthy no matter which masks and protein-rich topical treatments you are using unless you are healthy. Take a look at some of the foods that are rich in omega 3 fatty acids.

  • Mackerel
  • Walnuts
  • Cod Liver Oil
  • Flaxseeds
  • Salmon
  • Anchovies
  • Hemp Seeds
  • Egg Yolks

The best thing about these foods is that they are good for your heart health in addition to being great foods for your hair.

5.     Use an Effective Hair Care System

If you are someone who does not like experimenting with their hair, you should trust the professionals. However, when you approach beauty experts to fix your damaged hair, you are highly recommended to go for a complete hair repair system rather than picking up one product and fixing only half of the issue. Carson Life, a company focused on hair health with natural products, has such a complete, affordable and effective hair repair system.

One of the best hair care products from them is the coconut hair repair system bundled with cream leave-in conditioner. There are 5 easy steps to use this system to return the life back to your hair. Here’s how you use it:

  1. You use the intense repair shampoo just like a regular shampoo, but this one is equally good for color treated hair too.
  2. In the second step you apply the conditioner to get back that silky effect in your hair.
  3. This is the most important part of the system. You use the cream as a leave-in conditioner, or you could opt for a spray version. This step makes your hair all natural and beautiful looking even if excessive blow drying has parched them.
  4. In this step you apply the restorative mask that directly works on the damage you have done to your hair in summer.
  5. This last step is designed to get rid of the annoying split ends using the healing qualities of shea butter, amla oil and coconut oil.

Using this system after regular intervals will take away all the complaints you ever had about your hair. Not to mention you will be prouder and more confident when you have shiny, healthy, natural and silky hair.

The Bottom Line

As you look around for solutions on the internet to repair your damaged hair, an important thing to keep in mind is keeping things natural. One of the biggest mistakes that most women make is choosing strong chemical products to repair the damage – which sounds more like repairing the damage with more damage. While these harsh products are successful at making your hair look great temporarily, their long term damages can never be ignored.
