*Hair colour fading: The sun’s strong rays can often cause your hair colour to change due to its temporary bleaching effects. Wear a hat to protect hair. If not that, you can wear products with sun protection on your tresses.

* Green hair: Swimming is a great way to cool yourself, but the chlorine present in it can make your hair turn green. Look for chlorine-removing shampoos so that your hair can return to its natural colour! And, try to wear a swim cap to reduce the amount of chlorine your hair is exposed to.

*Forehead breakouts because of bangs: Greasy bangs sticking to the face can block your skin’s pores leading to breakouts. Try to keep your bangs or hair off your face so that your skin can breathe.
