Preventing Hair Damage From the Elements

Spending time outdoors can be good for you, but bad for your relaxed hair. I love the summer sun, but I've learned too much of it can be just as bad for my hair as it can be for my skin.

When spending a lot of time outdoors, there are things you can do to protect your relaxed hair from the sun and the wind.

1. Use a UV protectant to block UV rays thus protecting your hair from sun damage. We think about protecting our skin when sitting out in the sun, but not our hair. You can use sunflower oil or aloe vera which is all-natural UV protectants or store bought ones.

2. Moisturize before heading outside and after. Look for conditioners with vitamins C and B5 or acai berry antioxidants as they can help protect against environmental aggressors like the sun, wind, and pollution.

3. Wear hats, scarves, and protective styles such as buns or braids. They can help protect your hair and scalp from the sun rays and also help minimize tangles caused by the wind.
