5 Tips to Protect Your Hair From Summer Fun

Don’t let salt and sun wreak havoc on those lovely locks!

Before you step out into the summer sun, you lather up with sunscreen. But do you protect your hair from sun damage?

That’s right – just like skin, your hair and scalp need protection from the sun and fun of summer. Here are five tips to keep in mind as you move through the hot summer months.

Throw on a Hat

We’ll take any excuse to buy new clothes for a new season. Wide-brimmed straw hats are so chic—and in addition to protecting your face from getting too much sun, they’ll protect your scalp from getting sunburnt. (Of course, you should still keep the SPF handy!) Keep your hair out of the sun all day...and look great doing it. Win-win.

Create a Protective Barrier

The most enjoyable things about summer—warm weather, time outdoors, exploring and swimming—can really take their toll on the hair. Before you indulge in summer fun, pre-soak your strands with fresh water, and slather it in a leave-in conditioning cream. Already soaked in pure, nourishing, protective things, hair will be less likely to absorb damaging elements like chlorine and salt.

Cleanse The Day Away

Chlorine and salt have a dehydrating effect on hair that can cause a loss of elasticity and lead to damage. Effective, gentle cleansing and deep moisturization are key to protecting hair from the sun. An ultra-moisturizing shampoo and conditioner like the House of Dear Resurrecting Wash and Rinse, which is packed with clean hair healing ingredients, should be part of your routine.

Keep Your Scalp Healthy

We know that a healthy scalp means healthy hair. A leave-in treatment like the House of Dear Resurrecting Balm is not only great for all over your scalp and strands post-shower, but it's lightweight enough to refresh and protect your hair throughout the day without ruining your 'do. Since it has Rose of Jericho, Sunflower seed oil and Pure Aloe Vera, it strengthens, hydrates, and restores your hair and scalp instantly.

Plus the sunflower oil in all of our products contains vitamin E and acts as a natural sunscreen which can absorb UVB light.

Make SPF Your New BFF

This is just solid advice all around, for hair and skin. Apply sunscreen throughout the day to your face, arms, legs, back...any part of your body that’s being exposed to the sun. And that includes your hair.

It Comes Down to Proper Protection

The sun is — and will continue to be — a problem for hair. But by learning how to protect and restore your hair from sun damage you can maintain a healthy head of hair without sacrificing fun in the sun.
