Basking in the azure blue pool during the summer feels like a dream come true until the holidays are over, and you take a closer look at your hair, and reality bites. Between the sun, sea, and sand, our hair takes a beating during summer holidays. The harmful sun rays, coupled with the drying effects of saltwater and chlorine, can leave our locks feeling lifeless and damaged. Our usual ‘leave it and hope for the best’ approach won’t cut it. But fear not! With a little care and attention, you can revive your hair and restore its natural shine and health. Here are some tips to save your hair from post-sun frazzle:
Deep Conditioning is Key: Invest in a good quality deep conditioning treatment or hair mask and use it at least once a week. Look for products that are specifically designed to repair and hydrate sun-damaged hair. We recommend SACHAJUAN’s Hair After The Sun, our Haul of Fame of the month. If you want to revive your sun-kissed mane and restore its shine and vitality, this lightweight cream, enriched with protein-rich algae and minerals and powered by an innovative Ocean Silk Technology, is the ultimate summer saviour.
Trim Those Split Ends: Sun exposure and other environmental factors can cause split ends, making your hair look frizzy and unhealthy. Schedule a trim at the end of your summer holiday to get rid of those split ends.
Protect Your Hair from UV Rays: Just like our skin, our hair needs protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Wear a hat or a scarf to shield your hair from direct sunlight when you’re spending extended periods outdoors. Additionally, consider using hair products that contain UV filters for added protection.
Rinse with Fresh Water: After swimming in the sea or pool, rinse your hair with fresh water. This will help remove salt, chlorine, and other impurities that can damage your hair over time.
Limit Heat Styling: Give your hair a break from heat styling tools, especially during the post-summer period. Embrace natural hairstyles or let your hair air dry whenever possible to minimise further damage and breakage.
Use Leave-In Conditioner: Incorporate a leave-in conditioner into your daily hair care routine. Leave-in conditioners provide ongoing hydration and protection, making them perfect for combating post-sun dryness and frizz. The Hair After The Sun can be used as a leave-in treatment for an extra boost of hydration, leaving your strands replenished and easier to manage while minimising the risk of breakage.
When it comes to protecting our hair from the harsh effects of sun exposure during summer, having an effective after-sun hair care product is essential. SACHAJUAN’s Hair After The Sun lightweight cream is a game-changer in the world of haircare, offering nourishment, shine, and protection.
