But wait, are we forgetting something? Is our hair summer ready? One look into the mirror and pop! the bubble bursts!! Frizzy, limp, thinning and greasy … could it have been any.

Some quick fixes and hacks that will treat your hair making it beach-ready. 

• Chlorine-damaged Hair

• Oily, greasy Scalp 

Nothing can be worse than an oily greasy scalp weighing down your hair making it look like the otherwise sleek version. 

Solution 

In summer the best solution to maintain your hair is to wash it on a frequent basis to keep off the oil and dirt that it so lovingly attracts from the air. Dry shampoo is a miracle hair product on-the-go. Invest in a good one according to your hair type for the summer months. Nothing deals with greasy scalp issues better than a dry shampoo.

Whenever you are going for a day-outing, spritz your hair with a hair spray that is UV filtered. Also to restore the lost nutrients in your hair, do use a deep-conditioning hair mask to add volume and body.
