The per­fect sun­screen for hair

Too much sun can dis­turb the scalp and pro­mote hair loss. Hair bleach in the sun, become cracked and brit­tle. Sunburns on the scalp can cause seri­ous dam­age to fol­li­cles and the upper lay­ers of the skin. Those who love their hair should always pro­vide suf­fi­cient sun pro­tec­tion in sum­mer.

Why does sun damage skin and hair?

There has long been increased sen­si­tiv­i­ty when it comes to pro­tect­ing the skin of the body. Skin can­cer rates speak for them­selves. Only a few reck­less and risk-tak­ing peo­ple expose them­selves to the sun indef­i­nite­ly and with­out pro­tec­tion.

The sun’s UV radi­a­tion has become more aggres­sive due to changes in the Earth’s atmos­phere in recent decades. We peo­ple in Central Europe in par­tic­u­lar must adapt. Our sun screen is not as good by nature as the dark-skinned human type.

In the case of scalps and hair, the new­found sen­si­tiv­i­ty stops strange­ly quick­ly. Too many peo­ple still think the hair would pro­tect the scalp from sun­burn.
In part, that is true. However, the apex and hair attach­ments remain dan­ger­ous weak points. If the main hair clears, becomes thin­ner or if it has already par­tial­ly failed, sun pro­tec­tion must be oper­at­ed.

Natural hair loss due to sun and warmth

In addi­tion to hair loss due to sun, there is a very nat­ur­al increased hair loss dur­ing sum­mer time. If the tem­per­a­tures rise, we throw off humans’ head hair, just as many ani­mals do.

Especially in late sum­mer, after brush­ing or comb­ing, there may be more hair in the brush than is oth­er­wise the case.

In nor­mal peo­ple, this nat­ur­al sea­son­al hair loss of over­all appear­ance of hair splen­dor is not notice­able any fur­ther.

In the case of those affect­ed by hair loss, on the oth­er hand, they do. They want to pro­tect the last sur­viv­ing hair and not lose it by sun or oth­er fac­tors.

Hair loss due to sunburn

The scalp is one of the most sen­si­tive areas of the skin. Normally it is cov­ered by the main hair and to a cer­tain extent so pro­tect­ed in a nat­ur­al way.

People who wear the hair shaved, suf­fer­ers of hair loss or bald­ness car­ri­ers can get a sun­burn on the scalp espe­cial­ly quick­ly.

Scalp does not brown as eas­i­ly as oth­er parts of the skin. Normally, so-called melanocytes (pig­ment cells) pro­tect the skin from sun­light.
The num­ber of melanocytes in the skin varies indi­vid­u­al­ly. On the scalp and in oth­er hid­den parts of the body it is sig­nif­i­cant­ly low­er than on the arms, on the shoul­ders or on the face.

Southern Europeans and dark-skinned peo­ple gen­er­al­ly have more pig­ments and thus bet­ter nat­ur­al pro­tec­tion against sun expo­sure. Central and north­ern Europeans, on the oth­er hand, are sim­ply not made for a per­ma­nent stay in the scorch­ing sun. The head is par­tic­u­lar­ly endan­gered by the almost ver­ti­cal inci­dence of the sun’s rays.

Aggressive sun­light and UV radi­a­tion do not stop at the skin sur­face. They pen­e­trate into deep lay­ers. There, they can cause seri­ous dam­age to stem cells. Stem cells car­ry the infor­ma­tion for opti­mal renew­al of skin and hair cells. Damage in this area can lead to last­ing dis­tur­bances in hair growth and the beau­ty of the hair. Existing hair is repelled or infe­ri­or hair is repro­duced. At worst, the fol­li­cles cease their work com­plete­ly.

Best of a one-off

Sunburn will not imme­di­ate­ly per­ma­nent­ly dam­age the scalp and hair. In order to cause irre­versible dam­age with hair loss, the scalp must be per­ma­nent­ly exposed to extreme stress from the sun.

The dan­ger can be creep­ing. A slight sun­burn caus­es no more than feel­ings of ten­sion on the scalp. If the sun­burn is not rec­og­nized as such and tak­en seri­ous­ly, the stress con­tin­ues unhin­dered.

If you like to be out­side in sum­mer, have thin hair and light skin, you should always think of suf­fi­cient sun pro­tec­tion for your hair.

Sun and sea – a dangerous mixture for hair

In addi­tion to pure UV radi­a­tion, salt and chlo­rine water do a good job of their hair and scalp.

Who does not know this, after the bath in the sea the hairs are unusu­al­ly full and grip­py.
This may seem pleas­ant at first. Especially thin hair looks fuller again in this way. In addi­tion, it lies won­der­ful­ly styled on the head due to the heavy salt and remains in shape by itself.

But the salt in the hair is dan­ger­ous. It removes mois­ture from the head and dries out the scalp. The struc­ture of the hair is rough­ened and opened for harm­ful influ­ences.

Experts advise to show­er your­self imme­di­ate­ly after bathing in salt water with fresh water. Where the sea is wild and far and wide no show­er avail­able, a sup­ply of drink­ing water in plas­tic bot­tles helps. Beware of tap water in the south­ern coun­tries. This is also mixed with a cer­tain amount of chlo­rine, espe­cial­ly dur­ing sum­mer time. Therefore, pre­fer to use cheap drink­ing water from the super­mar­ket.

Chlorine addi­tions and oth­er chem­i­cals in the pool dry skin and hair also in an unpleas­ant way. Here, too, clear water should be rinsed as soon as pos­si­ble. A nat­ur­al mois­tur­iz­ing pack in the evening can bring stressed hair back into shape.

The mar­ket now offers a rich selec­tion of sham­poos and care appli­ca­tions espe­cial­ly for the hol­i­day sea­son. The care sub­stances can pull chlo­rine and salt per­fect­ly out of the hair and rinse it out. In addi­tion, they form a pro­tec­tive film to pre­vent the pen­e­tra­tion of harm­ful sub­stances.

Sunscreen spray for hair

Sun sprays are now also avail­able for hair. In prin­ci­ple, the sprays work just like oth­er sun­screens. They block to some extent the pen­e­tra­tion of harm­ful UV‑A and UV‑B rays.

The sprays are arranged in such a way that they lie on the scalp and hair like a pro­tec­tive film. Instead of min­er­al fil­ters, these sprays use only chem­i­cal fil­ters. The min­er­al solu­tions would weigh the hair too much.

Good sun­screens for the hair do not grease and do not form an oily shiny film. In addi­tion, there are prod­ucts only for the scalp. With a dos­ing trunk, these sun­screens are applied specif­i­cal­ly to the apex and the hair attach­ments.

Biological sun protection for hair

Those who are sen­si­tive to chem­i­cal sun­pro­tec­tion sprays do not have it so easy at the moment. So far, there is no pure­ly organ­i­cal­ly pro­duced sun screen only for the hair. In any case, no spray.

If you want, you can spray nor­mal bio­log­i­cal sun lotion on your hair and scalp. However, men and women must expect that the case and the sup­ple­ness of the hair will change as a result. In order to get the sun­screen off the head again after­wards, this exper­i­ment should only be done with water-sol­u­ble sun sprays.

Otherwise, sen­si­tive skin and hair types with spe­cial care prod­ucts can lim­it dam­age. Cures and mois­tur­iz­ing packs strength­en the hair and pro­vide it with a lot of good mois­ture.

Otherwise, there is only one solu­tion for sen­si­tive nature types – cap up and down in the shade!

Sunprotection with hats, hats and scarves

Of course, the good old sun hat also pro­tects against sun­burn on the scalp. But beware, not all chic and fash­ion­able mod­els are equal­ly suit­able as a pro­tec­tive mea­sure in sum­mer.

Wide-mesh edstraw hats still allow too much sun­light to pass through. The sit­u­a­tion is very sim­i­lar with thin fab­ric caps or caps.

Even a fan­cy cloth can only allow burns all too quick­ly. Black scarves, hats and hats attract the sun almost mag­i­cal­ly.

When the sun pops the most or in very hot regions, only spe­cial hats and hats with safe UV sun pro­tec­tion help.

Such mod­els can be found in high-qual­i­ty retail­ers for out­door cloth­ing or at very good hat man­u­fac­tur­ers. They are made of par­tic­u­lar­ly tight­ly woven nat­ur­al fibres such as cot­ton, wool or linen and can be sun-repel­lent coat­ed.

A sun hat with­out spe­cial UV pro­tec­tion must not be care­less. Sitting on the beach for hours in the sun, the hat or a cap can con­vey decep­tive secu­ri­ty.

Caution with metal on the head and sun

In addi­tion to the col­or black, met­al attracts sun rays. Hair clips with met­al, acces­sories on sun hats or glass­es with met­al parts should be taboo in high sun­light.

The glit­ter­ing sur­faces reflect and ampli­fy the sun­light. At the same time, they can gen­er­ate a ver­i­ta­ble elec­tri­cal volt­age on the head. The hairs are per­fect receivers for these ten­sions. In the hair they cause dam­age and put the scalp addi­tion­al­ly under stress.

Many man­u­fac­tur­ers of hair gums and co. now pro­duce their goods com­plete­ly free of met­als.

Colorations, curling rod and styling in summer

Those who suf­fer from hair lossshould refrain from gru­elling styling meth­ods any­way. Chemical hair col­or can be replaced by nat­ur­al pig­ments.

In sum­mer, hair is sim­ply exposed to greater stress. Freshly coloured hair can fade unat­trac­tive­ly after sun­bathing. In the pool water, blondes can get an unpleas­ant green stitch.

Many cheap hair gels, sprays and styling pastes stick hair pores and scalp. In sum­mer and at high tem­per­a­tures, these prod­ucts often react quite dif­fer­ent­ly than in the cool­er sea­son. Gel becomes hard and brit­tle. The hair can­not sit prop­er­ly despite hair­spray. Those who share these expe­ri­ences should give their hair a styling break at least in the sum­mer.

Also stress­ful are treat­ments with curl­ing rods, wave iron, the hair dry­er (if it has to be, then bet­ter blow dry eradry) or even per­ma­nent waves.

Natural prod­ucts and organ­ic hair care are less stress­ful than chem­i­cal prod­ucts. Summer can be the best time to switch to tol­er­a­ble hair prod­ucts. The scalp and hair will sure­ly thank their wear­er.
