Shoo away summer hair problems
Colouring your locks or taking a cool dip in the pool may be a problem for your hair during summer. Know how to protect your precious locks.
Kiran Lohia, managing director, Lumiere Dermatology suggests the following tips:
* Hair colour fading: The sun's strong rays can often cause your hair colour to change due to its temporary bleaching effects. Wear a hat to protect hair. If not that, you can wear products with sun protection on your tresses.
* Green hair: Swimming is a great way to cool yourself, but the chlorine present in it can make your hair turn green. Look for chlorine-removing shampoos so that your hair can return to its natural colour! And, try to wear a swim cap to reduce the amount of chlorine your hair is exposed to.
* Forehead breakouts because of bangs: Greasy bangs sticking to the face can block your skin's pores leading to breakouts. Try to keep your bangs or hair off your face so that your skin can breathe.
