How to Protect Your Hair from the Sun (and Why)?
It's important to protect your skin from the sun, but don't forget about your hair! Here are some tips to keep your hair looking beautiful.
If everyone knows more or less that it's necessary to protect the skin from UV rays, it's not the same when it comes to hair protection. Changing color, split ends, porous lengths. Here are some tips to keep your mermaid hair during the holidays!
Why Protect Your Hair from the Sun?
If UV can cause significant damage to the epidermis, you can imagine that it can also be very harmful to the hair!
Indeed, they penetrate deep into the hair fiber and sensitize the lengths, damaging the keratin. As a result, the hair breaks more easily, loses shine, and becomes rough like straw!
And it's even worse for colored hair that, already damaged by various chemical processes, is even less resistant to the sun's rays and literally burns.
Since sunny days are often accompanied by very aggressive exposure to salt, sand, or chlorine, it's also important to remember to repair the hair after each prolonged exposure to minimize damage.
Yes, even if the hair shaft is biologically dead, it's important to take care of it to avoid having to cut it all off!
How to Protect Your Hair from the Sun?
Use a specific care to protect your hair from the sun
Don't panic, protecting your hair from the sun is not complicated at all and doesn't excessively prolong a beauty routine!
Every morning, on dry hair, apply a special care with UV filters, in addition to a high level of protection. Depending on your hair type, choose a mist (lighter) or an oil (richer) to protect your lengths from the sun.
If you engage in water sports or might end up in the water, some products offer protection against salt and chlorine. As with sunscreen, don't hesitate to reapply regularly.
In terms of protection, the best is never the enemy of the good!
Protect your hair from the sun with a suitable shampoo.
Once at home, it happens in the shower!
Hair already attacked by the sun and external elements offers a moment of relaxation with a gentle shampoo to remove the oil and a repairing mask to strengthen the lengths.
Don't perform this ritual every day: twice a week is more than enough. On the rest of the week, if needed, just wash your hair with clean water, not too hot or too cold. If your hair is very dry, don't hesitate to provide a vegetable oil bath to nourish it deeply. One night a week, before going to bed, cover the lengths with oil and make a cap. The next morning, wash your hair with a mild shampoo. You'll see that your hair will have gained in softness and shine!
