Protect hair from UV sun damage

Summer is a time for fun, and we love to spend it outdoors. However, if you’re not careful, summer can also be hard on your hair. To keep your locks looking radiant and healthy this season, make sure to protect them from the sun’s damaging rays with sunscreen!

Wear a hat when outside

Hat-wearing habits vary depending on where someone lives and what their profession is, but for most people, the best way to protect against UV rays is by wearing a hat when outdoors. Hats can keep hair looking fuller and prevent breakage in extreme weather conditions like heat waves or cold snaps.

As you can see, it’s hard to keep your scalp from getting sunburned. But what if I told you that there is a way to prevent this and make your hair look shiny and healthy? Yes! Just put sunscreen on the top of your head before going out in the sun.  This will not only protect your scalp but also help with those flyaways when they start to get frizzy after being out in the heat all day. And one more thing: don’t forget about the back of your neck too!

Use sunscreen on your scalp, too!

In order to prevent this from happening, you should use a quality sunscreen on your scalp and hair before going outside in the sun. There are many different products available for purchase that contain SPF protection such as: spray-on lotions or sprays containing an SPF 30.

How many times have you heard this from your mom? “Don’t forget to put sunscreen on your scalp!”  This is a good reminder because the skin on our scalp is prone to UV damage just like any other type of skin. The difference between using sunscreen and not using it, though, may be more noticeable for those with hair loss or thinning. If you are concerned about thinning hair, sun exposure can make things worse by triggering the release of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) in the body which will eventually lead to follicle death.
