Keeping Your Hair Healthy In The Summer

While we all love the summer, prolonged exposure to the sun and heat could take its toll on our bodies. Especially our skin and hair. Yes, you may apply sunscreen every time you go out and you may reapply moisturizer every few hours and soak up all the sun your skin could absorb, but do you do the same for your hair? If the answer is no, you would know how your hair gets all frizzy and unmanageable and how it takes a lot of time out of your day, just to keep your hair manageable. While ironing your hair every morning can keep it frizz-free for a while, it can damage your hair even further and it is only a temporary solution. So what can you do about it?

Well, for starters, there are rebonding and straightening treatments available. These will make your hair look good, but they can dry up your hair faster and damage your hair in the long term. Keratin treatment Booragoon is a fairly new type of treatment that is increasing in popularity because it will make your hair shiny and healthy, without damaging it. Keratin is naturally produced in your hair to protect it against drying, but it declines with age and poor nutrition.

A keratin treatment done at your hairdresser’s could last as long as six months, with proper care and maintenance. The best thing is, your hair won’t lose its natural structure and it will grow back normally once the treatment wears out. By that time, you can go for another treatment and it can be done over and over again without having to worry about hair damage. The time it takes for the treatment depends on how much hair you have and on the type of hair you have.

It’s also important to make sure your diet provides all the necessary nutrients to keep your hair healthy. Vitamin E is especially important when it comes to this. Vitamin E will also increase your body’s immunity and help maintain healthy skin and eyes. Vitamin E is found in plant oils, nuts and seeds so make sure your diet includes plenty of these. Also, make sure you drink plenty of water as it will naturally replenish the moisture throughout your body. It is recommended that you drink around 2-litres of water per day, depending on your body size, but this can vary during the summertime. So make sure to carry a bottle with you whenever you can and keep drinking water throughout the day. Your body will thank you for it.
