Does your hair need protection from the sun? Absolutely, it does. Exposure to the sun is exposure to the sun; it doesn't only affect the skin. It dehydrates. It scorches. It is the reason your hair is dull and lifeless at the end of the summer. The reality is the summer brings last minute vacations, outdoor adventures and days when your hair takes a back seat to most things. In an effort to help you keep your tresses as healthy as possible, I put together a few tips to help you keep your hair protected this season.
The hat option
4 Ways To Identify The Perfect Summer Hat
Get The Right BRIM size A Brim is the edge around the hat. The brim should be 4" around to fully protect your neck, ears, and head from ascending and descending sunrays.
Go for hats made of UPF 50+ material This material keeps you safe from UVA and UVB sunrays. Look for natural options like straw, raffia, cotton, and hemp. Or, synthetics like nylon or polyester.
Look to protect your face The shape of the brim is just as important as the size. Find a brim that curves down and sits close to the face because it will provide better protection from the sun.
Repel sunlight Darker colored hats will absorb the heat from the sunlight making it unbearable to continue wearing the hat. Pick a white, tan, or pastel colored hat to help keep your head cool and your hair, face, ears, and neck protected from the sun.
Styles of Texture
I can count on one hand the amount of times that I have styled my hair since May 19; the last day of the school year. We have been swimming, fishing, and lounging none of which require me to look fancy. Now, you on the other hand may have clockable work hours in front of boring adults who expect you to look presentable all the time. My deepest apologies. Don't let them steal your summer from you. Take a cue from these beautiful texture styles and move through your day with confidence and little to no hassle. All that you need is a great leave in conditioner, 1 braid or twist technique, and satin scarf. My fellow Arizonians can step outdoors for few moments to air dry and the rest of ladies can dry while you sleep. Wake up a few minutes later and finger comb your tresses right on out the door.
