Day 7 of #sunscreenweek and I'm focussing on sun haircare. .
🏼I have very long, highlighted blonde hair, which needs lots of careful looking after if I dont want it to get totally frazzled and dried out. .
🏼Before sun I like to apply plenty of sunscreen to my parting, and over the lengths to protect it. I prefer to use sprays for this to not weigh it down, and use either the Biore spray (not shown) or the Tony Moly spray shown in a previous post.
🏼If I plan to be in the sun, I like to wear a Stupid Sun Hat. I have two of these, one with a pink flower, one with a black band. I look stupid in them both. Do I care? A bit, but not enough to repeatedly burn my scalp, which I will if I dont wear them!
🏼Afterwards, I need to get all that sunscreen and chemicals off my scalp and hair! I use a scalp descaler, like this one from Missha, and leave on for around 30 minutes before washing.
🏼After lots of sun exposure, or whenever it needs some tlc, I like to deep condition it with oil treatments. Currently I'm using coconut oil on the roots and scalp for the antibacterial benefits, which I massage in as much as possible, and rosehip oil on the lengths. Loads of different oils work well though, and have used olive, argan, camellia, and jojoba in the past. Apply before washing and leave on as long as possible. .
🏼I try to use a more moisturising and repairing shampoo and conditioner after lots of sun to stop it drying out, such as the KMS SolPerfection After Sun shampoo and leave in conditioner. .
🏼I *try* to leave off the heat appliances too but am not very successful at this since my hair is very annoying to deal with unless straightened!
🏼Dont forget to vote for Angela's Sunscreen Pearls! You cant use them on your hair, but are the correct dosage of facial sunscreen in a cute ball of happiness 🤗link in bio.
How do you guys protect your hair during hotter months?
