Shampoos to purify dusty and dirty scalps in summer

Summer is a literal hotbed for dirt, dust and grime. While most of us fight this problem by washing our face and body, we forget to do the same thing properly for our scalp. This is why the hair becomes greasy, tangled and dirty. This causes the follicles to become irritated and clogged, making the hair look dusty and dull.

If you can relate to this problem and want a solution, here are some scalp cleansing shampoos that will leave your head feeling refreshed, light and clean.

1. Biotique Bio Green Apple Fresh Daily Purifying Shampoo and Conditioner

79 rupees

This fruity, apple-scented shampoo and conditioner is ideal for those who wash their hair daily because it doesn’t strip hair like other shampoos if you use them daily. You don’t have time to condition your hair every day, so it makes sense to get a nifty two-in-one product that does both. That said, it’s not overly hydrating, so if your hair is dry, you might need some extra nourishment.

2. Dove Dandruff Clean & Fresh Shampoo for Dry, Flaky & Itchy Scalp

Rs 158

If you have a dry, dusty scalp filled with tiny flakes of dandruff, this is the perfect shampoo for you. It won’t get rid of chronic, heavy dandruff, but cleans up bits of dry flaking here and there. The scent is nice and leaves hair feeling smooth, but you still need to use conditioner after using it.
