Summer is time for fun under the sun, but it can be damaging on your hair. If you didn’t take your luscious locks into consideration before you decided to hit the beach, you might already be experiencing sun damage. However, it’s never too late to reverse the effects of ultraviolet rays and keep them from occurring again in the future.
The first thing you should do once you notice sun damage is get out of direct sunlight! Then, Cosmopolitan magazine recommends deep-conditioning your hair to replenish the moisture it lost. To make it silky smooth, apply a leave-in conditioner – preferably one that contains SPF – to get it back to normal.
If you’re fearful of sun damage happening to your hair again, SheKnows encourages you to look at the shampoo and conditioner you’re buying for your hair. Many manufacturers will tell you on the label if they include beneficial SPF. Another option is to cover up your head before you go outside – there are plenty of cute sun hats to be bought and worn! Take these tips into account for maximum protection this summer.
