Minnesota Summer Hair Care
The summer season in Minnesota can be disastrous for your hair. Rain and moisture makes hair frizzy and damaged. Fortunately, there are ways you can reduce the impact of moisture on your hair. Follow these 7 tips for to keep your hair looking and feeling great.
7 Haircare Tips for Minnesota’s Summer Season
Keep Your Hair Dry. Keep your hair dry as much as possible. Unless you are stuck in a downpour, avoid the temptation to get wet in the rain. Rain water has an acidic quality which can damage your hair. Swimming is probably a bad idea too.
Shampoo 2x a Week Thoroughly shampoo your hair with a high quality shampoo product. This will remove deposits left on your scalp from rain drops or excess moisture. The right shampoo will sustain your tresses and prevent bacterial or other contagious contaminations. Additionally, you should always shampoo from the root of the hair to the tip.
Use Appropriate Conditioner The biggest mistake people make with conditioner is using too much of it. Additionally, people tend to use it heavily on the tips and body of their hair while neglecting the scalp. Invest in a quality conditioner similar to your shampoo. Use a wide tooth comb or brush to massage the scalp. Finally, rinse your hair with cold water.
Invest in a Comb or Brush “Using a wide tooth comb or brush is an effective way of treating your hair during monsoon season,” said Christine Flipp, owner of Hair Loss Solutions. “It amplifies the effects of conditioning and keeps your hair untangled.”
Massage Hair with Oil Massaging your scalp and hair with an appropriate oil is another effective tool during monsoon season. Hair oil reduces dampness and revives dried and frizzy hair. However, be sure not use too much oil. Otherwise you will end up using too much shampoo trying to remove and rinse the oil.
Avoid Tying Your Hair Tying up your hair is an invitation to allow moisture in. Consequently, if you must tie your hair, choose simply styles like a ponytail or bun.
Invest in Waterproof Clothing Purchase some waterproof clothing to wear out in the rain. Raincoats with caps or hoodies are perfect for wet conditions. An umbrella will also do the trick, but your hair will still be exposed to moisture without a hood or cap.
