Protect Your Hair Against Heat, and Dry Weather

Stylist Asgar Saboo

Summary: Gulf News recently interviewed celebrity stylist Asgar Saboo for some advice because as the temperature increases to 40 degrees, your hair needs help.

Saboo offered five tips, which are all helpful, if a bit unusual. Read two of Saboo’s tips below:

Protect that parting

“The first step is always to protect your hair/scalp from the sun: If you’ve ever burnt your scalp on holiday you will know that it hurts. To avoid this you can use special sun screen moose or spray to prevent burning in susceptible places like the hair line and the parting, where the hair is finer.

“This will also protect against moisture loss and cuticle damage. An added bonus is that it  also gives body to limp locks and guards coloured hair from UV fading.

Oil up

“After being in the sun, oil treatments are a fantastic option to repair dry, damaged hair. They are simple to do at home and infuse damaged hair with moisture and shine.

“How to: Apply the treatment oil of choice to clean, towel-dried hair and proceed to cover your hair with a shower cap and apply heat by using a hot towel or using a blow dryer. After heating the oil, allow the hair to cool, and then rinse out with cool water. These oil treatments can be done one to three times per month on damaged hair depending upon the damage. Proper use of these treatments can increase elasticity to damaged hair and create shine, but be careful as overusing oil might cause your hair to look greasy.”
