How to care for your hair in summer?

1. Shield your strands from the heat & pollution

The heat and UV in the summer can damage your hair and scalp, leaving it dry, brittle, dull and prone to sunburn. Therefore it’s important to adopt protective measures, e.g. wear a hat, apply hair care products that contain UV filters.

2. Prevent hair from getting dirty and greasy

For those with an oily scalp, your hair may look greasy and dirty easily. A dry shampoo would be what you are looking for to get rid of the excess oil, making your locks and scalps look refreshed immediately by absorbing the oil from the roots. You can also easily keep the bounce and prevent hair from getting flat or deflated because of heat and humidity as well.

3. Give your strands extra nourishment

Your hair can be a bit dryer and frizzier due to prolonged sun exposure, don’t forget to keep your hair nourished by providing essential nourishment to seal summer split ends and keep them hydrated and smooth.

Micellar products for hair

Micellar water, containing tiny oil-based molecules called “micelles” suspended in soft water, is known for being gentle and non-irritating despite its strong capacity to attract, break down and remove dirt and oils. Using micelles on your hair is similar to using it on your face, which allows you to get your hair clean easily without stripping away your scalp’s natural oils.

Thus it works wonder on your hair, especially in summer, when you need to deep cleanse your hair and scalp while retaining its moisture at the same time! I have tested the micellar hair care range from Hair System by Watsons. Read on to check out my review.

Freshen your hair between shampoos with Hair refresher

Hair System by Watsons Micellar Hair Refresher purifies and revives your hair and scalp by absorbing any excess sebum. The no-rinse mist will give you’re your hair an airy and refreshing look instantly. The best thing is that it is infused with ingredients that protect hair from pollutants and environmental damage, leaving your hair round-the-clock refreshed and protected. 

I love using it after lunch, when my hair look dull and flat because of the humid and hot weather. The cooling effect and sweet scent is just what I need to get through a hot afternoon.

Alternative: Remove grease with dry shampoo

If you are looking for something that is super effective in removing dirt and grease from your hair, especially after gym or on busy mornings, this is your staple.

Hair System by Watsons Dry Shampoo absorbs oil and keeps scalp cool without visible residue. It also has a loving fragrance that leave my hair feeling fresh in an instant, while giving my hair the gorgeous volume boost that I need for hair styling.

For me, I use the hair refresher when I feel that my locks look a bit oily, dull and need some refreshment; while the dry shampoo is my go-to after workout when the strands look greasy and dirty. The latter is also great to use at night before you go to bed, so that the dry shampoo can absorb excess oils overnight and you will wake up fresh!

Maintain healthy hair with daily hair care routine

To keep your skin healthy and glowing, you need a quality skincare routine; the same applies to your hair too! Make sure your hair care routine consists of the following 4 steps, and remember pick products that suit your hair type.

  1. Comb: Before you wash your hair, brush it from the bottom up to avoid unnecessary breakage and damage.
  2. Shampoo: Wash your hair using the shampoo that suits your hair type. Shampoo your hair twice, with the first round washing away the dirt and grease, and the second round actually washing it.
  3. Conditioner: Apply conditioner in the end on your hair to restore moisture.
  4. Brush & blow dry:Squeeze the moisture out from the strand using a dry towel. Brush your hair gently to remove any tangles. Apply a heat primer to damp hair to protect its integrity before blow-drying your hair. Start with the bang and blow dry your hair until most of the moisture is gone.

Hair System Micellar range is formulated with micelles to detoxify hair, defend hair against pollution and environmental damage, as well as to energize hair from the roots. The powerful particles, micelles, can easily sweep away pollutants that settle on your hair and scalp, which would otherwise cause harmful effects to their health. Using micellar products on your hair will also make your hair look shiny and also improve its texture over time

Oily hair & scalp: Micellar Botanical Deep Cleansing Shampoo & Conditioner

The deep cleansing shampoo contains rosebay extracts to gently and deeply cleanse and revitalize the hair, remove excess sebum and impurities. The conditioner deeply nourishes, leaving your hair smoother, softer and healthier.

I have an oily scalp and dry hair at the same time, so I went for the purifying shampoo and conditioner.

The texture of the shampoo is runnier than what I expected. When used, you won’t get the rich frothy foam that most shampoos create; but it becomes rather some dense and creamy. At first, I was quite skeptical against the cleansing ability because usually more bubbles mean more cleaning power.

What surprises me is that the shampoo lather just easily spread across my scalp and strands, and it leaves my hair soft, fresh and clean after rinsing. And my hair doesn’t feel straw-like after washing!

Then I rub the conditioner over my hair, from the ends to near the scalp. Once washed away, my hair feels smooth and detangled, and I could feel that the conditioner is completely out of my hair.
