Can You Reverse Sun Damage in Your Hair?

It’s the middle of summer, and as you enjoy time at the beach, bbq in the backyard, or swimming at the local pool, you’ll want to be sure you’re also doing everything you can to protect your hair. 

Protecting your skin with SPF is a given — sun damage can be extremely harmful to your skin in both the short and long-term. But did you know that the sun can also damage your hair, as well?

“The sun’s rays act very much like bleach on hair,” says Wilma Bergfeld, dermatologist. “The good news is that you can take precautions to protect your hair from the summer sun.”

Not only that but yes, you can actually restore your hair’s natural texture. Here are our tips on preventing and restoring sun-damaged hair.

Protect, Protect, Protect!

The follicles in your hair produce natural oils. When your hair is sun-damaged, the cuticle, or the outside coating of your hair strands, will be noticeably damaged. So, if your hair is dry, discolored, brittle, thinning, frizzing or splitting at the ends, those could be signs of sun-damaged hair.

To protect your hair at the outset, we recommend using the following products:

Color Goddess — this salt-free formula works to prevent color fading with UV ray protection, so you can keep brightening every room you walk into.

Diva Sleek — this kit comes with our Hypersilk Replenishing Shampoo + Conditioner, so you can moisturize and restore hair strands. Also including the Hypersilk Smoothing Balm and Advanced Serum, you can control your frizz and give your hair the maximum shine.

Hypersilk Volumizing Hairspray — perfect for those humid moments, this Keratin-infused formula can be used on wet or dry hair to protect your strands against the power of humidity. 

LASIO Keratin Protector — this might look like your ordinary spray, but it’s anything but that. Spray on your hair to improve keratin performance by 40%, and protect your hair from salt, chlorine, and harmful UV rays!

Soothe & Restore Dry, Sun-Damaged Hair

The second part to protecting your hair from the sun is going on the offensive — when the sun has done it’s worst, we’ll make you look your best.

To give your hair a little TLC, we recommend the following products:

Hypersilk Replenishing Shampoo — This is the ultimate tool for dry, damaged, or aging hair. This formula is salt-free and keratin-infused. It works to gently lather and saturate dehydrated strands in your hair.

Hypersilk Replenishing Conditioner — Salt-free and cool to the touch, this hydrating conditioner works to prolong your keratin treatment and repair any damaged hair for a powerful shine.

LASIO Hypersilk Advanced Serum — This powerful formula works to tame frizz and flyaways, and give you an extra sheen.

Hypersilk Revitalizing Masque — Frizz and sun damage has met its match with this multi-purpose reparative keratin-infused conditioner. Use before swimming as a shield against salt and chlorine, or after a stroll in the sun.
