Hair protection from the sun How to Keep Hair Moisturized in Summer

Our hair is the basic element of our femininity and because most of us suffer with dyes, hairspray and styling, they need special care to maintain their health and shine, especially in the summer with the Sun and Salt.

Just like the skin, our hair needs to be well hydrated. Especially in the summer months, prolonged exposure to the sun and sea salt put a strain on the hair, causing it to become dehydrated and break.

Therefore, to keep it healthy and shiny, we need to take care of our hair and its proper hydration!

"What allows us to have beautiful hair in the sun in the summer is melanin, the natural pigment found inside the hair that mainly has a protective effect. And while in the skin its production gradually increases with prolonged exposure to the sun, on the contrary in the hair decreases!"

Some steps that will help our hair to be beautiful and shiny even in the summer!

  1. Wet your hair with fresh water before diving into the sea or pool water. So they will be less affected by salt or chlorine.
  2. We spray our hair with sunscreen in the sea after swimming, first rinse it with fresh water and then gently wipe it with a towel.
  3. We comb our hair with a comb that has fine teeth, to reduce the risk of hair breakage.
  4. If our hair is dry and dehydrated, before the sunscreen spray, apply a conditioner like Kerastase Lait vital from the middle of its length to the ends for deep hydration!

Of course, beautiful hair takes work, but be sure that the result will reward you!

Some steps that can help our hair stay hydrated and shiny in the summer

  1. We find the right shampoo for our hair type. Many times, we ignore the labels of the products and thus do harm to our hair without realizing it.
  2. We don't forget to apply conditioner and 2-3 times a week to do a care mask. And that's because in the summer the hair - even if we don't go to the beach - gets dehydrated and breaks much more easily.
  3. The oil on the ends is useful and immediately gives "breath" to the hair.
  4. Essential for the beach kit is a moisturizing product that will protect but also give the hair what it needs.
  5. None of us likes dehydrated and dull hair, so along with face and body sunscreen, put Sunscreen on your hair too! In the market you will now find many types of sunscreens especially for hair in the form of sprays or creams that will surely meet your needs.

Heat, chlorine, the sun and the sea can cause irreparable damage to our hair. But that shouldn't keep us away from all the summer fun.

There are smart ways to fix them and not waste a minute of your summer thinking about your hair!

So let's see a few more steps you can take to keep your hair shiny and healthy during the summer.

  1. Cut the ends, not only because your hair grows 10 to 15 percent faster during the summer, but also If your hair feels dry and limp and the ends have a straw texture, it's time to get some edges. A finger or less is enough to clean your hair.
  2. After the treatment, there was a treatment program for sun-damaged hair, including a moisturizing shampoo, conditioner and styling products.
  3. Use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner Sun-damaged hair is dehydrated and desperate for moisture. To restore lost moisture, use a shampoo and conditioner with nourishing oils such as coconut, jojoba and argan. Try to find products without added sulfates and parabens. These toxic ingredients tend to cause hair breakage.
  4. Make a treatment mask After a summer when the hair has suffered enough the need for repair is essential. You can try an avocado mask handmade or at a hair salon. A nutrient-rich treatment mask with protective oils and extracts to repair sun-damaged hair and dry, damaged ends.
  5. Take a break from the press We already know that these machines damage our hair and we need to limit their use in the summer months and let our hair rest. It's the perfect opportunity to try different hairstyles and help your hair return to its natural shape.
  6. Opt for a silk pillowcase Cotton pillowcases are absorbent and can actually draw moisture from your hair and skin while you sleep. Silk will not leave your hair perfect but it will definitely prevent dehydration. Additionally, it will reduce electricity and tangling.
  7. Massage your scalp often Take a few minutes a week to massage your head in a circular motion to stimulate circulation in the scalp. Once a week, massage with a nourishing hair oil. Tension on the scalp can make hair growth weaker, slower and hair more brittle.
