Can the sun damage your hair? Yes it can

It can change your hair colour

You may notice that a few days on vacation can cause you to come home with slightly lighter strands, depending on your hair type. Yes, that’s right, even without bleach, your hair can change colour in the sun. While this might be good news to some, this is a sign that your hair has taken a hit from the sun's rays. 

It can make your hair dry and brittle

The sun can cause significant damage to your hair, just like overusing your straighteners. If you notice that your hair is starting to feel ‘straw-like’, it may be a sign that it's getting damaged. This can lead to a repetitive loop of even more breakage and split ends over time. 

How to reverse sun-damaged hair

Keep your hair out of the sun

If you really care about the health of your hair, opt for a hat when the sun starts shining. We know, it's not ideal. But to guarantee the health of your hair, this is always an option. 

Use a hair growth serum 

Our UKLASH Hair Growth Serum is formulated to help fight hair loss and boost hair density. Packed with vitamins for thicker, denser, fuller and healthier hair growth, this is an excellent serum to apply daily, especially after a dreamy day in the sunshine. 

Take it a step further and invest into some UKLASH Hair Vitamins for fuller and thicker-looking hair. Including essential vitamins like Biotin, Vitamin C + E, Folic Acid and many more antioxidants to maintain healthy hair growth throughout summer and beyond. 

Can I use sunscreen on my scalp? Yes, you can! 

While the desire to protect your hair from the sun may mostly come from the idea to keep your hair shiny and manageable, it’s important to note that our scalp requires more hefty protection from the sun.

Here’s how to apply your hair sunscreen before going out in the sun: 

Start with clean, dry hair. You can either apply the hair sunscreen before or after styling it. 

  • Hold the bottle about six inches away from your hair and spray evenly across your hair.
  • Focus extra time on the top of your head (where your hair splits into a part). This is where your hair is most exposed to direct sunlight.
  • Use your fingers or a comb to distribute the product throughout your hair, covering all areas.
  • Let the hair sunscreen dry completely before going outside.
