Top Tips To Prevent Hair Sun Damage
With warm months just around the corner, it is essential to inform and advise clients on summer hair care routines to avoid thinning and frizzy hair, broken and split ends, and discolouration and dryness the prolonged exposure to the sun can cause. Here, the experts at Notino round up the best tips on keeping hair protected from sun damage.
The importance of protecting against sun-damaged hair
The UVA and UVB rays damage the outside cover of the hair cuticle, acting very similar to bleach on hair, slowly weakening the protein structure, sapping out moisture and reducing hair elasticity. The hair is harder to style, looks and feels dry, and breaks easily.
Advise clients plan ahead for summer. Just follow these simple rules…
Extra moisture and nourishment
A proper moisturising routine can do wonders. Reverse the damage with a protein-rich shampoo, conditioner and hair mask and add nourishing leave-in products that can be left post-wash and allow to nourish the hair daily. The Syoss Keratin line includes shampoos, intense conditioners, and leave-in treatments full of natural ingredients with a complex of amino acids that nourish and regenerate hair and keep it strong, healthy and protected.
Level up the hair protections and add SPF products designed for the scalp and hair. Powder or a leave-in spray with SPF, protects the hair against UV radiation, prevents colour fading and eliminates chlorine and saltwater damage.
Healthy scalp = happy strands
Our scalp is not used to getting much direct sun. However, an occasional sunburn and extensive dryness on the scalp may damage the roots and lead to other hair problems. Always keep in mind that healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp. Before sunbathing, advise clients to apply SPF to their part or use a hair mist with SPF that protects the scalp and hair at the same time. Also, moisturise the skin regularly with a soothing scalp treatments and serums.
Follow the latest trends
A physical barrier such as a light headscarf or a hat will naturally protect hair from sun damage. A hat with UPF (ultraviolet protection factor) will minimise the damage caused by sun exposure the best.
The sun, pool, or swimming in the sea can make all types of hair prone to damage, leaving it weak and fragile. But with the proper protection, your clients can enjoy the sun-kissed look with no harm to their locks.
