Protection from sun rays:
Ultra-violate rays emitted from the sun is dangerous to the health of your hair and skin. They cause dryness and breakage to your hair and make it lose its vitality and shininess.

High temperature and direct sun light dryness and breakage to your hair ends during the summer. To avoid damaging the entire hair strands you are strongly advised to treat the affected hair ends by using special shampoos and hair cosmetics.
Avoid chemical based cosmetics:
It is advised to stay away from chemical based hair treatments such as hair dyes and whitening products during the summer as your hair get subjected to many harming factors during this season.
Frequent hair brushing:
Hair brushing helps increasing blood circulation in the scalp enabling blood to reach the roots of the hair. The longer your hair is the larger the brush you should use and avoid by all means brushing your hair when it is still wet as doing so cause hair ends breakage and hair loss.
Avoid tying your hair tightly:
Beauty experts warn against hair styles that rely on tying the hair tightly as this cause the hair to lose its vitality and softness and prevent it from breathing fresh air.
You need to follow the following steip:
- Apply a layer of hair moisturising cream prior to swimming in swimming pools or in the salty water of the sea because such water damage your hair and dry its ends.
- Use hair sun blocker to prevent your scalp from drying by the direct burning sun rays. However, only use lite cream to avoid letting your hair become greasy in unpleasant way.
- If you dyed your hair, you are strongly advised to use protection mist for dyed hair to prolong the life of your hair colour and to protect it from getting affected by water and sun rays.
- Use water proof hair styling cosmetics to work as an extra protecting layer covering each hair strand from being subject to direct water.

And if your hair have a greasy nature to it we advise you to dye it in the summer to absorb the extra oils in its new status as a dyed hair.
- If you have a dry or curly hair we advise you to rely on effective hair moisturisers and visiting your beauty salon a number of times to have moisturising and hair strengthening sessions using recipes based on natural ingredients as sometimes hair moisturising alone does not show the desired results.
- Hair breakage and dryness due to being subject to chlorine found in water is the most common problem that women face during the summer.

And during the high humidity days use the curly hair style. However, if your hair is naturally curly you it would be enough to apply a lite layer of gel to make it look fresh and healthy.
