How to Protect Your Hair from the Sun

I’ve been lucky to spend most summers of my life at my aunt’s country house in a hot and sunny region. The sun gives you so much energy and joy, le alone all the Vitamin D. But the exposure isn’t all that good for your hair and your skin. Today we’ll go over the hair part.

I’ve tried all the methods in the world to protect my hair from direct sunlight. I’ve covered them with all kinds of hats and headbands. Yet, you can’t live your life with a covered head. At some point, it just becomes too much. That’s why I have this to-do list for the hot season.

1. Trim your hair more frequently

It’s crazy how the malnourished ends react to the heat. The reaction will then spread all the way to the roots unless you take care of them at the very beginning of the season.

2. Avoid extra heat

The sun is already getting to you with its hat, so at least don’t add to it. Use blow dryers and flat irons as little as possible. Or at least choose the light mode.

3. Don’t forget your conditioner

Your conditioner not only moisturizes, but also protects your hair. Look for a brand that allows the most frequent use and try to stick to it.

And that’s my top 3. Share the post on your social media and add your magic method of protecting hair from the Sun.

Flat or Wavy: How to Decide

I’m leaving curly out to dedicate a separate post to my favorite and the most difficult shape of the hair. Let this one be just about straight and wavy.

Before getting to choose any hairstyle, remind yourself about the natural structure of your hair. That’s most likely what suits you best. But it’s not a reason to not try anything else. So go ahead and choose your next hairstyle counting in these factors:

1. Length

The longer your hair, the more space you have for waves. Use it! See, women with shorter often straighten their hair to make it look longer. With really long hair, you can curl your hair all you want.

2. Thickness

Here’s the rule: the thicker-the straighter. Straightening is the last thing you want to do to thin hair: it will look even thinner. But the thicker it gets, the better straight styles start to look.

3. Face shape

Basically, there’s no restriction as to what hair you can wear with a certain shape of the face. But there are some patterns you might want to check for yourself. Waves usually look great around triangular faces. People with round faces tend to straighten their hair more often. And lighter waves are a great choice if you have a square face.
