Summer is in full swing and that means we are enjoying long days, sun-kissed beaches and refreshing dips in the pool. But did you know that the sun can be harmful to your hair? Just as you protect your skin from the sun, it is important to give your hair the right sun protection too. In this blog, we share useful tips and information to keep your hair healthy, strong and natural during the summer months.
Understand the impact of the sun
To understand why sun protection for your hair is important, we first need to look at the impact of the sun's rays. UV rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation that comes from the sun. Ultraviolet radiation can damage the outer layer of hair, the cuticle. This leads to weakening and breakage of the hair, making it brittle and dull. In addition, exposure to UV rays can affect the hair's natural pigmentation. Hair frequently exposed to the sun can fade or fade, especially in coloured hair.
Excessive heat can also cause significant damage to your hair. Exposure to high temperatures can deplete the moisture in the hair and dry it out. Heat can change the protein structure of hair, which can lead to loss of elasticity and resilience.
So it is essential to protect your hair from these damaging effects.
Opt for a wide-brimmed hat
One of the most obvious ways to protect your hair from the sun is to wear a wide-brimmed hat or a nice scarf. This not only provides shade for your scalp, but also protects your locks from direct sun exposure. Choose a hat or scarf that suits your style and enjoy the extra protection as well as a fashion statement!
Avoid the hottest hours of the day
The sun is at its strongest between 11am and 3pm. Try to avoid direct sun exposure during these hours. This way, you limit the damage to your hair and give it a chance to recover.
Invest in a quality Salt Spray
A subtle but effective way to protect your hair and create a beachy look is to use a high-quality Salt Spray. This spray moisturises your hair and protects it from drying out in the sun. It also gives your hair natural texture and volume, as if you have just come from the beach. Spray a little Salon B Haircare Salt Spray with sunflower oil and extra UV and heat protector into your hair before going out in the sun and enjoy stylish protection!
Rinse your hair after swimming
A refreshing dip in the pool can be lovely, but chlorine can dry out and damage your hair. For extra protection, use Salon B Haircare Highlight Protector Spray before diving into the water. Always rinse your hair thoroughly after swimming. Preferably use lukewarm water to remove the chlorine and then moisturise your hair with a nourishing conditioner. Salon B Haircare's Moisture shampoo and conditioner are perfect for this!
Nourish your hair from within
Besides external sun protection, it is also important to nourish your hair from within. A healthy diet with sufficient nutrients, such as vitamins A, C, E and omega-3 fatty acids, can contribute to strong and shiny hair. Consider foods such as avocados, nuts, salmon and sweet potatoes.
Enjoy the summer and take good care of your hair!
With these practical tips and information, you can best protect your hair from the sun's harmful effects. Opt for a wide-brimmed hat, avoid the hottest hours of the day and invest in quality hair products like a Salt Spray for an extra boost. Also, don't forget to take good care of your hair after swimming and nourish it with a healthy diet. This way, you will keep healthy, strong and natural hair throughout the summer months.
So, protect your hair and enjoy a carefree summer!
