Hair can get sun damaged? Who would have thought? While you hair shaft can’t suffer from sunburn or develop cancer, the ultraviolet rays from the sun can damage the shaft, rendering your hair dry, dull and brittle, making it susceptible to split ends. There is a real chance that you scalp can suffer from sunburn too. And let us tell you, sunburns, although not as common on darker skin, are very painful to deal with. Not to mention, rather icky, when the skin begins to peel.

 

Since we at the beauty desk are absolutely committed to making you the best, beautiful you, allow us to offer you an umbrella to protect your luscious locks from sun damage. You can invest in a hair serum, and apply that to your hair before styling. It is advised that you apply your favorite hair oil to your hair and scalp and don a swimming cap before jumping into a pool, as prolonged exposure to chlorine is something of a kiss of death for your tresses.

 

You can also protect your hair after sun exposure; like getting a pedicure after a night of dancing in painful (but beautiful) heels. Whip up a hair mask with equal parts coconut oil, yogurt and aloe vera gel. The oil and aloe will restore moisture and shine to the shaft, while the yogurt acts as a cooling pack for any parts of your scalp that may be singed. Leave this mask on for 30 minutes, then shampoo it out. Lastly, for an additional boost of love, don’t forget to condition your hair as well. Pull your hair up into a mid-level ponytail and apply Dove Intense Repair Conditioner to the length. Rinse out with cool water and let it air dry.

 

So go forth and frolic in the winter sun! Just don’t forget your UV protection for face and hair. Stay beautiful!

Go for a trim

Tease the roots

Backcombing is an age-old technique to make hair seem fuller and voluminous. Tease your hair around the crown area to make it look big and healthier.

Use a moisturizing shampoo

Damaged hair needs extra care and extra oiling which is why it’s better to switch to a moisturizing shampoo like Dove Intense Repair that gives your hair that extra hit of moisture it’s craving without stripping off the natural oils from root to tip.

Wash with cold water

Cold water seals in the natural oils while hot water strips it away. If you’re someone who enjoys hot showers, end your hot shower with one last cold blast of water to seal cuticles and pores.

Sleep on a silk pillowcase

Cotton pillowcases tug at your hair and absorb all the moisture from your hair in the night, making it weak and brittle. Switch to a silk pillow for a luxurious napping experience and a happier head of hair.
