As the summer season approaches, many of us are getting excited about long days spent soaking up the sunshine. While the summer sun is a great source of joy and vitamin D, it can also take a toll on our hair. Let’s talk about protecting your hair from sun damage!

So what are the effects?

According to celebrity stylist Ric Pipino, stepping outside without protection can put our hair at risk for faded color, lack of moisture, and overall distress. These effects make strands look and feel dull and dehydrated, the longer-term problem is premature hair aging. Yes, you read that right – your hair has an aging process too! The sun’s rays can lead to a depletion of volume. Which means that your thick, luscious locks may gradually become thinner and less voluminous.

The summer season also brings with it a host of other hair-harming elements, such as wind, chlorination, and salt water. These harsh seasonal foes can weaken the hair’s integrity, leaving you with an overall withered and brittle appearance. When you add loads of heat styling into the mix, you’ve got a recipe for disaster.
