Protecting your skin from the sun during the summer is very important, but did you know protecting your hair is equally as important? The sun’s rays can negatively affect hair follicles if the hair is exposed long enough. Therefore, to have the healthiest hair possible, your hair should be protected from the sun. Here are some tips on how to protect your hair during the summer months.
Tip 1: Moisture! Moisture! Moisture!
Hydrating your hair is the first tip to keeping healthy hair during the summer. The sun’s rays are on full blast in the summer, and if your hair is not hydrated, the rays can do some serious damage to your hair. Thankfully, all Honey Baby Naturals products include honey as an ingredient. Honey is a natural moisturizer that can help protect the sun’s rays from drying out your hair.
Tip 2: Treat your hair to a masque
Sometimes, knowingly or unknowingly, you can cause damage to your hair during everyday activities. In the summer, fun things like laying on the beach or swimming can hurt your hair. Thankfully, you can heal your hair by using a hair masque like the Honey & Ginseng Energizing Hair Masque! This particular masque gives intense moisture to the hair, while also restoring elasticity and strengthening hair cuticles for stronger and healthier looking hair. Once a week, after washing your hair, a hair masque should be coated onto the hair and left on for 5 to 10 minutes. After the 5 to 10 minutes, wash out all off the hair masque. You will be left with moisturized, energized hair.
Tip 3: Prevent any further damage to your hair
Protecting your hair is an essential key to keeping strong, healthy hair. Because your hair is already majority protein, it’s important to rebuild the protein if it was lost. Protein can be lost from heat, including sun rays, and different chemical processes. A product like the Milk & Honey Leave-In Conditioner is a great addition to your hair routine to help protect your hair. This dual phase leave-in conditioner helps strengthen hair cuticles and protects hair from heat damage. The milk protein phase binds to the hair to prevent breakage, while the honey phase leaves the hair shiny and full. This product can be used before you go play in the pool or on the beach for added hair protection.
