Summer is the harshest season for the scalp. Neglecting scalp care during this season can cause hair loss and thinning. Let’s make sure we take the proper measures to prevent this.
Lots of smells and thinning hair on my scalp in the summer!
In summer, the scalp becomes dry due to sunburn, and dirt tends to accumulate due to heavy sweating and excessive sebum production. This causes sebum to accumulate in the pores, leading to hair loss and odor.
In addition, when hair is exposed to ultraviolet rays, nutrients inside the hair are leached out, leading to dryness, damage, and color fading. Hair is slightly acidic in a healthy state, but exposure to alkaline substances such as ocean or pool water can also open the cuticle, causing the nutrients inside the hair to leak out and damage the hair.
How to prevent it! How to Protect Your Scalp from Summer’s Greatest Enemies
How can we protect our hair and scalp from summer harm that can cause hair loss, odor, and damage?
Good protection against ultraviolet rays
Wearing a hat when going outside, sunscreen applied to the scalp, and hair care products that protect the hair from UV rays.
For sebum control, scalp massage after bathing is recommended.
Scalp care removes sebum from the scalp!
Those with a sticky scalp should use scalp shampoos that cleanse the scalp and scalp essences that nourish and hydrate the scalp.
Easy scalp massage at home
Blood circulation in the scalp causes hair loss. In addition to taking care of your scalp using the above methods, you should also massage it.
Firmly massaging the scalp from the top of the head, moving the scalp, will soften the scalp and improve blood circulation.
The scalp is located above the heart, making it a difficult place for blood to reach. In particular, people with stiff shoulders are thought to have blood stagnating in their shoulders. Relieving stiff shoulders can also improve the health of the scalp.
