Must-Follow Hair Care Routine During Summers In India

The scorching heat, sweat, and the continuous urge to wash the hair define the summer season in many parts of the world. Adorning the perfect summer look with well-set hair and flawless makeup is a struggle. While winter calls for regular oiling to keep the hair moisturized, summer is more painstaking as along with the skin, the hair also needs equal attention and care. Neglecting a proper hair care routine during the summers in India can lead to bad hair days, breakage, and oily scalp.

The Indian Summer-Weather

Indian summer sets foot in the sub-continent during March to mid-June followed by the monsoon. The summers in India are hot and dry.  An added feature to the summers in India is ‘loo’, blowing winds that are hot, dry, and dusty. The temperature can shoot up to 50 degrees or even more.

The Indian climate during this season exposes people to direct and strong sun, dry winds, and unbearable heat. But as the sub-continent is varied in demographics and topology higher altitude areas of the Himalayas and Plateau bring ease to the heat keeping these areas relatively cooler than the plains and Ghats.
