While your hair may be made up of dead cells, it needs care and protection, especially from the elements. Other factors like stress contribute to hair damage too.

We’ve gathered some quick tips to help keep your hair full of shine and bounce.

The sun

Your hair might look dazzling in the sun, but over exposing it to UV rays will do it more harm than good. Products like conditioners with UV filters are available in the market today, and they protect your hair from the sun for long periods of time. The best solution to preventing damage to your hair by the sun is to invest in some headgear like a hat or a scarf.

Humidity

Frizzy hair is most prone to getting damaged in humid conditions. To prevent hair from becoming utterly uncontrollable in humid conditions, use products that enhance the moisture content in your hair like deep conditioning and anti-frizz products. This will keep your hair sleek and shiny no matter what the weather is like.

Water

No holiday is ever complete without a dip in the sea or in a swimming pool. While a dip is tempting you might not realize that this could harm your beautiful hair. Chlorine and sea water damage hair leaving it dry and straw like and, in extreme conditions, even tint it green. Although you may think it doesn’t look fashionable, the use of a simple swimming cap is the best way to protect your hair.

Use a good leave-in conditioner or a mixture of conditioner and water to rinse the chlorine or seawater out of your hair as soon as you are out of the water. As soon as you are home, you can do a thorough job of taking care of your hair by shampooing and conditioning it.

Stress

High levels of stress do lead to an increased weakness in hair, leading to breakage. And the only way to prevent this is to stop fretting so much. Tone down your schedule and take a little bit of rest. Using high quality hair products can help mend the damage a little bit.

Heat

Heat can damage hair in unimaginable ways. Temperatures above 2000 C can produce visible changes to hair like accelerating colour loss and destroying your hair’s structure. At even higher temperatures, hair strength is reduced to 50%, permanently. Certain types of hair like fine, coloured or dry hair is more prone to getting damaged by heat than thick and healthy hair. In order to prevent damage to hair due to heat, you should use gentle, high quality styling products and keep the temperatures of these tools as low as possible.
