The sun is slowly emerging again: how to protect your hair from sun damage

With warm days approaching and the sun gradually making its comeback, we can look forward to delightful days outdoors in the sun. However, many of us fail to realize that it's just as important to protect our hair from the sun as it is to protect our skin. With these tips from professional hairstylist Fiona Franchimon, you can ensure that your hair remains shielded from the sun and external damage.

Tip 1: Style your hair with the Nº1 Hairpin

Using the Nº1 Hairpin to style your hair offers numerous benefits, especially during warmer days. Exposure to the sun, sea, and beach can dry out your hair, making it prone to breakage when using traditional elastics. By opting for the Nº1 Hairpin, you can effortlessly create hairstyles in under a minute. Its easy removal prevents hair breakage and shedding, while its sturdy grip ensures your style stays intact throughout the day. Plus, it doesn't leave any kinks behind! Shop yours here.

Tip 2: Use hair care products with UV protection
It's essential to use hair care products that contain UV protection. Unfortunately, most ordinary hair care products do not provide protection against the sun.

Fortunately, all three different hair care lines from Fiona Franchimon are equipped with UV protection: for example, the Moisture & Balance hair care contains Broccoli Seed Oil, a natural shield against heat and sun damage and the Color & Shine hair care is based on Green Tea Extract, which contains antioxidant properties that protect against sun damage. 

Tip 3: Extra care after a day in the sun
After a day in the sunshine, it's important to give your hair some extra attention. Wash your hair twice with shampoo, preferably Fiona Franchimon Haircare, rinse it out, and apply conditioner. Let the conditioner work overnight and rinse it out the next morning. Your hair will feel soft, healthy, and shiny again immediately. The Moisture & Balance line is perfect for this.

Tip 4: Use oil after a day in the sun, sea & sand
Not only is it smart to use your conditioner as a leave-in after washing, but it's also essential to add some oil daily. Especially after a day of sun/sea, it's crucial to protect your hair ends with oil, preferably our Treatment Oil Serum. And don't forget to give your scalp a massage, especially if it feels dry!

Tip 5: Use a Scalp Massage Brush
Many people don't realize how important it is to massage your scalp for five minutes every day. A Scalp Massage Brush helps purify the scalp by removing dandruff and residue. Massaging the scalp is also relaxing and makes the scalp more flexible, improving scalp oxygenation. Improved scalp oxygenation also results in better hair growth! Especially after a sunny day, it's a good idea to massage your scalp.

Tip 6: Protect your parting from the sun
Don't forget to apply sunscreen to the parting in your scalp because your scalp needs protection too! Fortunately, with our Haircare products you already have the first layer of protection as it contains UV & Heat protection.
