Summer heat is notorious for causing intense dryness, excessive oil production and worse, hair fall. Unfortunately, all that shedding is noticeably happening on your head not on any other part of your body that would save you a trip to the waxing salon. Still, the dreaded summer molting doesn’t have to be inevitable. You can add these professional tips to strengthen and hold your hair together.
A person can lose about an average of 100 strands of hair every day. In the summer this can peak to more than 200 strands a day causing some real concern over hair loss. Luckily seasonal hair fall is, for the most part, a natural occurrence. It's part of a hair cycle called telogen, or a resting phase where we are extra prone to hair fall. But sun exposure and heat can aggravate this phase causing premature shedding of an otherwise still viable strand. The good news is that in most cases the cycle just restarts and hair regrows. Still, if you're worried that those extra strands clogging your drain are too plenty for comfort, here's how you can keep it under control.
The benefits of hydration are well established. It helps your body function against the heat, it’s great for your skin, and of course it’s great for your hair as well. A lot of things can be solved with just remembering to take your 8 to 10 glasses of pur clean water every day. Your hair iis comprised of one quarter of water, so don’t forget to drink up.
