You know how to take care of your skin during the warm months - but do you know how to properly shield your hair from sun damage, too?
You don’t want to mess around with sun damage to your hair. If you don’t protect your hair from the sun, you could experience:
- Weakened and thinning hair
- More broken or split ends
- Increased frizziness in hair
- Intensified dry hair
- Improved chances of hair color fading
Keep your hair healthy, beautiful and growing this summer by following these five simple steps to shield your hair from sun damage.
1. Use a BB Cream for your hair.
2. Keep your hair straight and shiny with silk.
Hair oils and silks are designed to soften and add shine to your hair. CHI Silk Infusion is one of THE best hair products for adding indescribable softness to all hair types. It also help repair damaged hair and has a thermal protectant built in. How's that for multitasking?
3. Spray on a heat protectant before using your flat iron.
If you're a flat iron junkie like me, then you absolutely need a heat protectant for your hair - especially during the summer months when the sun is impacting your hair through natural heat. CHI 44 Iron Guard is a superior thermal protecting spray that provides outstanding heat protection. Use this product to prevent damage from the hottest heat-styling tools!
4. Buy products that contain SPF.
You'd be surprised how many hair products contain SPF, which help keep your strands stay safe when you're hitting the beach, exercising outside, or simply running errands in the summer months. Read labels and ask your hair stylist for quality hair products that contain SPF.
5. Keep your hair hydrated.
Just like you need to nourish your body by drinking lots of water while outdoors in warm weather, you should also hydrate your hair! This summer, make sure your summer hair care routine includes a deep conditioning product like CHI Nourish Intense Hydrating Silk Masque.
And if you're in the pool a lot, make sure you use a shampoo and conditioner that is designed specifically for swimmers. Malibu C Superior Swimmers Kit is the ultimate tune-up for swimmers.
