One way to ensure your hair is healthy BEFORE you tackle the sun this summer is to take vitamins daily. Vitamin C and Biotin (B vitamin), are both essential for preparing your hair to stay healthy and strong not only during the summer months, but throughout the entire year. Hat or patterned scarf– Wear a hat to avoid direct sunlight on your hair while you are out and about in the sun. If you aren’t much of a hat-person, wear a cute patterned scarf to cover your hair instead. Try it with a sleek, low-tied bun or a fun, half-up half-down look.
UV Protection Spray
The variety of these products are endless but really serve one main purpose; protect your hair, like sunscreen protects your skin! I’ve tried numerous brands but continue to go back to these to get the job done, Biolage Color Care Therapy Shine Shake Spray and Wella Sun Protection Spray. To maintain the most moisture and shine possible for your hair, always apply the spray to wet hair. This will allow your hair to absorb the spray and lock in the moisture better.
OH the many ways we can use coconut oil! From lip balm, to moisturizer, to coffee creamer and makeup remover – someone stop me because I could go on for days! But for this purpose, coconut oil can be used as a natural sunscreen for your hair, when applied right before you venture outside. Pro tip: make sure your hair is wet when applying oils to your locks. There have also been whispers through the grapevine that avocados and olive oil are good natural sunscreens for your hair too.
Deep Conditioning Treatment
Take the time to condition your hair about twice a week to help restore sun-damaged hair or even hair damaged by coloring-chemicals. Wella Enrich Moisturizing Treatment is one of these great hydrating treatments. Leave in conditioners are also beneficial to use in order to let your strands soak in all the goodness.
