Applying sunscreen and avoiding time in the sun is the key to having healthy skin. The same applies to your hair as well. Sun can dry out the skin, so too can the sun cause excessive hair dryness and lead to extreme damage to the cuticle. Here are important tips you can follow to keep your hair protected:
Know Your Hair Type
One of the first steps in protecting your hair from the sun is to figure out what your hair type is. Certain types of hair are more susceptible to sun damage. Darker hair is far more protected from the sun, much like darker skin being more resilient to the sun. Hair texture plays a huge role in sun protection. Oily, moisturized hair is less likely to dry out than brittle, dry hair.
Go Easy on Your Hair!
To ensure a healthy head of hair, be careful not to overdo it when it comes to coloring treatments and blowouts. Additionally, even if you only treat your hair, still be careful with your hair! Fewer hair treatments put your hair at risk for sun damage. So always be diligent about keeping your hair protected.
