As the temperature and humidity rise, you’re more likely to pull your hair up, back and away from your face. Unfortunately, this can cause strain on your scalp and the hair follicles, causing hair loss. Losing strands in the summer is pretty common for everyone, but particularly those with certain diseases, taking medications or just genetically prone to hair loss. But fear not! Wig-A-Do has some easy tips for how to reduce hair loss in the summer.
Treat Your Scalp to a Massage
Hair growth, and loss, often starts at the scalp. A warm oil massage is not only relaxing, but it helps your hair get stronger at the roots. Use coconut oil and even add a few drops of essential oil to enhance the sensory experience. The massage also stimulates the scalp to promote more hair growth. There are many scalp-centric hair products designed to stimulate the scalp in a similar way, using caffeine, fruit extracts and even tiny, tingly little scrubbing beads. Just be careful not to over wash your hair and dry out the scalp.
Keep it Natural
Using more natural products removes many toxins and chemicals from doing damage to your mane. Coconut milk is a great natural ingredient that can help add moisture to hair. Aloe vera also adds moisture while calming the scalp and helping to fight hair loss. And don’t forget to work on healthy hair, skin and nails from the inside out. Staying hydrated with plenty of water can make a huge difference in your hair health, and it’s something many people don’t keep up with in the summer heat.
