When it comes to sun protection we tend to focus only on our face and body, forgetting completely about the hair.  In the beginning, hair damage from the heat and sun isn’t noticeable, but with time it results in dry, brittle hair. Also, don’t even get me started on what’ll happen if you have dyed hair and don’t protect it. 

The best tips to protect your hair during summer:

 

1. Protect your scalp from sunburn 

Use a cap or a cute scarf every time you go out and know that you’ll be spending time under the sun. You can also try slicked-back hairstyles, this way you won’t burn your scalp. Don’t forget to wear sunblock on your ears, forehead, and neck as well, because you could develop cancer from a sunburnt scalp.


2. Avoid hair elastics

It’s likely that you tend to tie your hair up because of the high temperatures and the humidity. Use silky scrunchies or hair scarfs instead; this will avoid hair breakage.

3. Use leave-in to control frizz

Moisturizing your hair during the warmest days of the years is E-SSEN-TIAL. Stock up on masks, conditioners, oils, and treatments with ingredients that seal water inside the strands. Try The Hair Routine’s multifunctional Conditioner as a leave-in to keep your hair hydrated even after long hours of heat and sweat. You can also use it before and after going to the pool or the beach. Also, follow your routine and make sure you don’t skip the Moisture step, your hair will need all the panthenol and coconut oil it can get.


4. Avoid using extra heat-styling at all costs.

The weather is already warm enough and dries your hair; avoid that extra damage. But if you have to then #useprotection.
