How to protect your hair from the sun this summer

Between the heat and UV rays, the sun isn't really your hair's friend. But it's still possible to enjoy summer sunshine without harming your locks. Follow the guide!

No matter if you're in the city or at the beach: the sunlight can cause damage to your hair, as well as your skin, so it's very important that you follow a meticulous hair care routine before exposing yourself. Also, don't forget to drink water (lots of water), because moisturizing starts from the inside. Water evaporates faster and faster from our body as the temperatures rise, so stay hydrated!

Work on your good habits, and get equipped, to face summer

To fight the dehydrating, and bleaching, effects of UV rays, you can now find haircare with SPF protection. If you team up with a hair oil like Solar Sublime by L'Oréal Professionnel, you'll give your hair great nutrition, shine and protection from the sun altogether!

Reapply your protective hair oil every two hours during exposition to the sun, especially while on the beach or hiking in the mountains, just like you already do with your regular sun block. Also, keep in mind that it's even more efficient to stay under an umbrella or wear a hat during the sunniest hours of the day because your scalp can also get sunburned.

These tips are also very good to prevent a heatstroke, so don't underestimate them if you want to have a carefree and beautiful summer!

What about after being in the sun?

The last step of this summer hair routine is, of course, haircare! Because even with all of these precautions, the sun will have at least a little impact on your locks. You should opt for a nourishing and repairing range of products that will rehydrate and reinforce your hair fibers. Absolut Repair Lipidium or Pro Fiber by L'Oréal Professionnel are both really great choices to do so. Last but not least: don't forget to regularly apply hair masks because they really satisfy your hair's thirst for nourishment and hydration.
