your hair from sun damage
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.
