Summer means many warm days spent by the pool, at the beach, and dining outdoors. Even though we are diligent when it comes reapplying our sunscreen, don’t forget that all the sun-soaked activities can cause damage to your hair and scalp. Protecting your scalp is key to preventing sun damage. Your best option is to cover your hair with a hat or scarf, or to wear a protective hairstyle, such as a bun, so that your scalp isn’t exposed to the sun’s rays.

When you are applying sunscreen your face and neck, be sure to apply some to your scalp. The products you choose should set your hair up for success. High quality hair masks and oils can nourish your scalp to fight off damage. Next time you visit your NJ hair salon, ask your local hairdresser what types of products are available for preventing UV-damage. High quality shampoos and conditioners, such as Orbie hair products, will provide your hair with the moisture and strength it needs.

Sun-damaged hair takes time to repair. If you’ve experienced damage caused by UV rays, you will need to schedule regular trims with your local hair stylist. Use a moisturizing Orbie shampoo and conditioner, and never brush your hair while it is still wet. In the warmer months, try to skip the heat tools and opt for an air-dried style. Your summer of fun doesn’t have to be cut short if you follow these simple tricks. For more helpful tips, contact the experts at Razberri’s Salon by calling (732) 506-0110!
