Sun protection for hair and scalp
With a sunscreen for hair you protect your hair and scalp from the UV rays of the sun. Therefore, many brands have special care lines for sun-stressed hair. Among others, L'Oréal Serie Expert Solar Sublime, Paul Mitchell Sun, Kérastase Soleil, Goldwell Dualsenses Sun Reflects, Keune Care Line Sun Sublime, Redken Color Extended Sun, Schwarzkopf BC Bonacure BC Sun Protect and from Wella Care Sun and SP Sun. Some of our best sellers are:
- Wella Sun Protection Spray: effectively protects hair from UV rays and moisturizes hair with a vitamin complex.
- Redken After Sun Shampoo: Revitalizes hair damaged by sun exposure, cleanses and moisturizes.
There are also special after-sun products to gently regenerate the hair after sunbathing. Wet hair is particularly sensitive to sunlight. After a bath in chlorine or salt water you should shower to wash out any deposits and thus protect your hair.
Professional hair care in summer
30 degrees in the shade, blue sky above your head and the pool or the sea in front of your nose: that's summer feeling at its best! Now quickly put sunscreen on your skin - and you're ready for your bath in the sun and water.
Stop - there is definitely something missing: your sunscreen for hair! This is often forgotten in the midst of all the summer fun and is treated like a stepchild in comparison to skin care. A deficiency that becomes annoyingly noticeable at some point.
This is exactly the danger you can counteract with little effort: with sun protection for hair and a moisturizer that works from root to tip. Especially in sunny months, your beloved hair needs a lot of care in order not to lose its healthy shine. Each individual hair consists of 10 to 15 percent water; the sun, as a natural enemy of moisture, causes the water to evaporate, making the hair brittle and dull.
Why does hair need sunscreen?
Almost everyone is looking forward to summer and the sun. But the UV light can harm not only our skin, but also the hair. Sun makes happy, but if you want to stay happy longer, you should protect yourself! However, most people like to forget about the hair. However, sun care does not end with the skin - a fact that many people have never considered!
Why does our hair also need to be protected from the sun?
The first ray of sunshine in spring is something special for most people. You look forward to the hot summer season and can hardly wait to lie in the warm sun. However, if you get too much of the warming power, you run the risk of damaging not only your skin, but also your hair. The hair structure can suffer from the radiation, scalp and hair itself can quickly dry out, fade and also the keratin layer of the hair is quickly damaged.
A hat or a scarf can help. Nevertheless, the hair can dry out despite the hat. Special sun protection oils for the hair are therefore particularly suitable for massaging into the tips. They provide moisture and prevent dehydration. By the way, chlorine and salt water also damage the hair. You should also avoid using metal hair clips. These can heat up particularly quickly in the sun and thus also damage the hair. If the hair is colored or tinted, the radiation can also remove the color pigments from the hair. The hair then often becomes "blotchy".
In addition, one should not underestimate the danger of getting a sunburn on the scalp. Especially people with thin hair should be careful in the sun and not take any risks.
Sunscreen hair - the right protection
We have already become accustomed to the appropriate sun protection for our valuable skin. But the hair is unfortunately often forgotten. But it actually needs special care and an extra portion of protection. Unfortunately, hair can dry out and quickly become brittle when exposed to too much sunlight. But how can you counteract this fact and what exactly should you pay attention to?
First of all, you should pay attention to the quality of the products that are used to protect the hair. On the international market today you can find an incredible number of products from a wide variety of brands. It is not always the price that matters, but the ingredients and composition of the product are much more important.
Which products are suitable for the perfect sun protection of my hair?
The choice of products today is enormous: numerous products from different manufacturers can be found practically on every corner. Some of them have equipped the products with a special UV protection in the summertime. The rays are then usually absorbed by UV filters. In addition, most products moisturize the hair and scalp. But also very special products can be found again and again in the summer. Thus, there are very specific products that are especially suitable for sun-stressed hair and thus not only protect the hair, but also care for it at the same time.
Many sprays and oils form a protective film around the hair and often improve combability. In addition, in the hot season, you should always reach for special intensive hair treatments or hair masks, as these also improve the structure.
Sun protection hair - wet hair is particularly sensitive
The water temporarily dissolves the shaping shell of the hair, which consists of salts and water bridges. Brushing or rubbing your hair too vigorously in this condition can damage it. Also too hot blow-drying or regular use of a straightening iron can lead to hair breakage in the long run. The keratin layer of the hair is destroyed by this extreme heat exposure. Excessive sunbathing can also damage the keratin in the hair, which is why reaching for keratin products is highly recommended, especially during the hot season!
After Care on for the hair
Today, you can find numerous after-care products not only for the skin, but also for the hair. Mostly they consist of nourishing active ingredients such as aloe vera and can help the hair to relax after a hot summer day and refuel it with moisture. It is also important to ensure a sufficient supply of water from the inside out. Especially in hot weather, you should never forget to drink water, because water is not only good for our skin, but also for our hair!
UV rays are also not really good for our hair. Therefore, if you want to keep your mane well-groomed even in the hot time of the year, you should rely on the appropriate protection for the hair and thus not take any risks. The right hair care is therefore particularly important in the summer months and should not be neglected, especially during this time. Who reaches for the right care, can look forward to beautiful, shiny and above all healthy hair in the heat!
