How to Protect Your Hair from the Sun?

Want to keep your hair bouncy and glossy throughout the year? We’ll help you choose the right hair care (not just) for the summer, and add some tips on how to protect your hair from the sun.

Why Does Your Hair Need Sun Protection?

Harmful UV light makes your hair dull and less healthy by breaking down its keratin building blocks and thus causing irreparable damage to the hair structure.

  • UV protection will coat your hair in a light film which works as a barrier against sunlight.
  • The sun, salt from the ocean water, or the chlorine from a swimming pool dry out your hair significantly, which is why it needs protection, hydration and regeneration.

Sun Protection for Hair

Unlike regular hair products, summer hair care contains UV protection and nourishing ingredients, vitamins and minerals to strengthen the hair. These are usually vitamin E, panthenol and carotenoids.

  • You can pack a hair oil or spray with UV filter in your beach bag and use it quickly and easily anytime you need to. These products also often contain moisturising ingredients to prevent frizz and leave the hair shiny.
  • Conditioners, masks and shampoos with UV protection nourish, hydrate and protect your hair from the moment you wash it.
  • Hair sunscreens protect your hair during sun exposure. You can also use them to protect your scalp.

Apart from sun care for hair, there are other ways to protect your hair from sun damage. Read our tips on how to take care of your hair in the summer:

  • Rinse your hair under running water as soon as you get out of a pool to prevent the chlorine from damaging the hair structure.
  • Wear a head covering. Not just during sunbathing or sporting activities, but also during swimming.
  • Let your hair air-dry after swimming. If you immediately tie it into a ponytail, it could ruin its strength and elasticity.
