Healthy Summer Hair

 We all know that the sun is a great source of vitamin D and if you want to quickly increase your levels, spending some time outdoors will do the trick. However, what most people don't know is that excessive sun exposure can be damaging to your hair. UVA and UVB rays are known to damage the outermost layer of the hair shaft called the cuticle. It’s the protective layer of your hair, hence the most important layer. Sun damage can come in the form of dry and brittle hair, discoloration, broken or split ends, thinning and frizziness. It’s very important that you protect your hair if you plan on spending an extensive amount of time outdoors this summer. Below are a few tips to keep those beautiful tresses summer ready.

1. Keep your hair moisturized and conditioned.

If your hair tends to be dry, sun exposure will only make matters worse. A good moisturizer and leave-in conditioner will make all the difference and cut down on frizziness. If you’re on the go, try our Herb Infused Hair Growth Oil to seal in the moisture. You wont’ be disappointed.

And don’t forget about your scalp. A healthy scalp is the foundation of healthy hair. Our Pink Himalayan Salt Scalp Exfoliator will do just the trick to thoroughly clean your scalp in preparation for your moisturizer and leave-in conditioner.


2. Minimize how often you shampoo your hair.

Over-washing during the summer months removes the oil your hair naturally produces to protect it from the sun. Shampoo is designed to strip your hair of dirt and oil buildup from the surface of the hair fibers. If you can go at least three weeks, that would be perfect. However, if you shampoo your hair weekly, opt for a moisturizing shampoo or even a dry shampoo if washday is daily.

3. Try not to use hot styling tools as often.

If you must blow dry and straighten your hair, be sure to wrap and tie it up at night so in the morning all you have to do is comb it down into your desired style. Doing this each night will minimize having to flatiron it for at least a week or two. 

4. Wear a hat, preferably a wide-brimmed hat, instead of a baseball cap.

It allows for maximum hair protection. And there are so many cute options. If you’re planning to wear a straw hat, be sure it is tightly woven as most don’t protect your scalp and hair from the sun’s rays.

Enjoy your summer! ☀️
