If you are wanting to protect your hair from sun damage, there are several things you can do, as well as several things you should not do. Here are the best hair sun care tips.
Don’t apply sunscreen or sunscreen spray to your hair. Because hair is already dead, SPF protection won’t help your hair (but it can protect your scalp, if you tend to burn your scalp).
Before you hit the pool or the ocean, rinse your hair first with fresh water. You hair will absorb the fresh water first, allowing less chlorine or salt water to be absorbed by your hair.
If you find the sun is causing your hair to dry out, or that your color is being stripped by the sun, use a leave-in hair condition on your hair for added protection. The extra hydration will counteract the negative affects of the sun on your hair.
