How you protect your hair from the sun?


Sun, sea and wind can discolor, dry out and make our hair look dull. In addition to sunscreen for your skin, it is therefore better to take extra care of your hair in the summer.

The best protection for your hair is a headgear or scarf when you sit or walk in the sun, and a swimming cap when you go swimming. After swimming, it is important to rinse your hair thoroughly.

How you protect your hair from the sun?

Since the sun makes your hair paler, maybe you can wait until after the holidays to color your hair?


In addition, we have these tips:

• There are all kinds of shampoos that supposedly strengthen, nourish and so on your hair. There are even special shampoos that contain a UV filter for sun protection. However, a shampoo stays on the hair too short to really have much effect. An ordinary mild shampoo for daily use is more than sufficient. Do not use too much shampoo in the daily wash.

• Apply a moisturizing conditioner after shampooing. Preferably choose a product that contains no alcohol and as many natural ingredients as possible.

• To protect your hair extra, you can apply a protective lotion or gel. Especially with dyed hair, this can help to prevent the rapid discoloration. Do not use products containing silicone or mineral oil (petrolatum, vaseline, paraffin...). Do not forget to rinse the products well at the end of the day.

• You can apply a nourishing hair mask once a week. There are different products for this, but regular olive oil works just as well and is much cheaper. In any case, avoid products based on silicone or mineral oil. Apply the product to the hair with a cotton ball, wrap a towel and leave for several hours before rinsing thoroughly.

• Preferably let your hair air dry and do not use a hairdryer during a holiday in the sun.

• Small children, adults with thin hair and those who are bald (or balding), better use sunscreen on the head to protect the scalp.
