What Summer Brings: Protecting Hair and Skin Amidst the Fun and Sun

Summer is a season that brings with it a lot of excitement and anticipation. With warmer temperatures, longer days, and plenty of sunshine, there are many things to look forward to during this time of year.

Here are some of the things that summer typically brings:

Summer outfits

One of the most enjoyable things about summer is being able to wear light, comfortable clothing that lets you feel the warmth of the sun on your skin. From shorts and tank tops to flowy dresses and sandals, there are so many fun and stylish outfits to choose from.

Along with the excitement about summer outfits comes the fear of exposure to the sun. The hot weather and sun's UV rays can damage the cuticle of your hair. The cuticle on exposure to the UV rays tends to become rough and swell up. This causes frizz in the hair which becomes unmanageable and prone to breakage.

What can you do

You must apply sunscreen at all times when you step out or even while you are indoors. Remember to wear a sun glass, hat or cap to keep your eyes, skin and hair protected from the harsh rays of the sun. 

More pool time 

As the weather heats up, many people start spending more time at the pool. Whether you're lounging on a float, playing games with friends, or swimming laps for exercise, there's nothing quite like cooling off in the refreshing water on a hot day.

However, more pool time means more skin and hair exposure to the chlorine water. Regular exposure to chlorine makes your hair highly porous. Chlorine can change the color of your hair, weaken your hair strands, resulting in split ends. If your skin is sensitive to chlorine, it can result in an itchy and irritated scalp too. 

What can you do 

Summer heat tends to get you to spend a lot of time in the swimming pool, so you must keep in mind that while chlorine disinfects your pool it can also damage your skin and hair. Make sure you use a swimming cap to protect your hair and scalp from chlorine. Use a hard-water and chlorine shower filter to rinse off the chlorine water after swimming. 


Summer is a popular time for vacations and holidays, whether you're planning a big trip or just taking a long weekend to relax. From beach getaways to camping trips to city breaks, there are plenty of destinations to choose from.

Meanwhile, the holidays also bring with it the overnight drinks, sleepless nights, busy schedule, tendency to eat unhealthy food, poor food timings and overall stress. All of which affects our overall health along with the health of our hair and skin. 

What can you do 

Make sure you enjoy your vacation with caution from the effects of the hot sun, dust and pollution when you travel. Always use sunscreen to protect your skin, make sure you get enough sleep and try to eat healthy while you travel to different places.

Frequent showers 

With all the heat and humidity of summer, it's not uncommon to take more showers or baths than usual. Not only is it refreshing to rinse off after a long day, but it can also help you feel more comfortable in the warm weather.

While frequent showers are just a way to cope with the weather, taking frequent hard-water baths can cause multiple issues. Hard water is the excessive calcium and magnesium in the water that stick to the hair and skin leaving it dry, rough, itchy and prone to breakage. Most of the households get hard-water in the taps and showers in the bathroom.

What can you do 

The average temperature during the summer season in India can span about 32–40 °C (90–104 °F) which compels you to take multiple showers in a day to cool off. However, more shower time means exposure to hard-water. To avoid the effects of hard-water, you can get shower and tap filters that condition the hardness causing agents from the water making it safe for use. They help reduce hair fall and protect your skin.


Overall, summer is a season that brings a lot of fun, relaxation, and enjoyment. Whether you're soaking up the sun, exploring new places, or just spending time with loved ones, there's always something to appreciate about this time of year. However, it's important to keep a few things in mind while you enjoy the perks of summer. Keep your hair and skin protected even in the harsh summer sun at home, work or even in your favorite vacation destination.
