You protect your hair from the sun, not just like that. You protect your hair from excessive sun exposure. Sun in itself is very good for our health. Thanks to sunlight, vitamin D is produced, because the body cannot make this vitamin itself. However, too much sun rays damage your hair, especially if you spend a lot of time in the sea or in chlorinated water.

And that can be done very easily these days with a number of tips & good hair care.

Why is your regular shampoo, conditioner and treatment not enough during the summer? That is actually very simple to explain. Hair care especially aimed at the summer is not a special hype, there is really a thought behind it. In other words, it is there for a reason.
Hair care specifically aimed at protecting your hair from the sun always contains one of the following points:
Hair care specifically aimed at the sun often contains UV filters. UV filters protect your hair from the UV radiation contained in the sun's rays. Excessive exposure to the sun and therefore UV radiation will fade your hair color. Whether it's painted or your own. Even though we can imagine that turning your natural hair color a little blonder can be desirable.
Hair care that protects your hair from the sun often contains oils. Oils nourish your locks intensively and they give a beautiful shine!
Hair care that protects your locks from the sun's rays often contain antioxidants. These antioxidants are not just in there, they ensure that the cells of your hair repair and protect.
Hair care that protects your locks from the sun often moisturizes enormously! Logically, excessive exposure to the sun's rays causes dry hair. That is why the hair products often contain substances (such as glycerine) that have the special property of binding moisture from the environment. This ensures that your hair is hydrated, and you want that in the summer!
Hair care that protects your hair from the sun often contains silicones. Silicone is water repellent and therefore ensures that salt and chlorine repel. We recommend that you be careful with this, especially if you have curls. Oil-based silicone eventually dries out your hair and causes a build-up. Water-based silicone is recommended, but please note that if your hair has been wet, the silicones are out of your hair!
One does and the other doesn't. It all depends on what you find most comfortable. One loves that his or her natural hair becomes blonder. Then you are actually good with extra hydration in the form of a hair mask or an oil that nourishes intensely. If your hair is dyed it's a completely different story, then of course you want to prevent your beautifully dyed hair from fading. That is of course a great shame! Then you actually want to do everything you can to protect your beautiful locks from the sun.
Are you going on holiday and are you lying at the beach all day? Then it is definitely recommended to take extra care of and moisturize your hair, the so-called 'straw hair' is often present during the summer. Of course you want to avoid this :-)
