sun damage

Are you a sun worshipper like me? Then you know that protecting your skin from harsh UV rays with a good SPF lotion is a must. But did you also know that your hair should be protected too? It’s true! Hair follicles are really just specialized skin cells that can also be damaged when overexposed to the sun. Dry, brittle and damaged hair? Not so touchable! Even worse, overexposure can lead to hair loss (did anyone else just cringe a little?) Keep reading and you’ll be well on your way to basking in the sun worry-free!

Hats aren’t your thing? That’s okay — try zinc oxide. This can be found in Enza Essentials Advanced Protection SPF. Just massage a little through your hair and enjoy the benefits of smooth and luxurious hair – with the bonus of protecting your follicles!

Look pretty with a ponytail

If your hair is long enough, try pulling it back into a ponytail. This will ensure that your scalp is fully protected from the sun – although I recommend applying a bit of sunscreen to your crown area!

Treat your hair as you would your skin

Sounds a little crazy but you can actually apply SPF directly to your hair as well as your skin! I opt for an oil-free based SPF so my hair doesn’t look greasy.
