Investing in Hair: How Summer Kills Your Hair and What to Do to Prevent It

This summer will change everything. But any summer will do that for your hair if you don't take care of it. Depending on the right summer care, your hair will be shiny or dull, silky or brittle next season. Marika team presents an ultimatum guide about protecting from the sun and a list of the best summer products for your hair.
- What's so special about summer hair treatment?
One day, in the winter or autumn, you realize that your hair quality is far from being in good condition. They lost their shine, felt like straw, and began to fall out more often. The sun is the one to blame here. From April to October, we walk outside without hats because the weather allows, and in some regions, this period is even longer. Every time we appear in the sun without head protection, we damage our hair. In summer, the sun is closer to the Earth, which triples the negative effect. It makes your hair lose its color, and it also evaporates all the moisture, which makes it brittle. The head skin is also being damaged, and we are not explaining to you how awful it is. Add seawater or chlorinated water from hotels' pools to this, and you get ruined hair in a few months as a "gift." Your hair gets worse not all at once; it has a cumulative effect that you notice only later when there is nothing you can do. That is why you should care about your hair and pay even more attention to the treatment in the summer.
- How do I protect my hair and head skin?
You can start with the legendary mother's advice that won't cost you a bunch of money on cosmetics: wear a hat. Today, even children know that the sun's rays affect your skin and its condition. If you do not protect your skin, it will age faster, become dehydrated, and get sunburned. The condition of your head's skin has an impact on your hair. Once you burn it, your hair will fall out much more often, be thinner, and be more fragile. It is like if you were to grow something on unprepared soil. You wouldn't get a good harvest. So hats are your savior, and SPF products, like spray, are your backup friend. The second cosmetic should be put all over the sunny day.

Hair needs care as well. In return for the time spent on treatment, you will not encounter the problems of tangles, dullness, and fading hair.

1. Use a shampoo with UV filters. Yes, they exist and don't cost more than usual.

2. Remember that the sun evaporates moisture from your hair too, so switch all your hair cosmetics to those with the words "nourishing" and "moisturizing."

3. Introduce an indelible hair serum into your care. Only non-washable products protect against the sun's rays. If a shampoo works as a cleaner, indelible products function as protectors during the day.

4. Do hair masks every week during the summer. If your hair is dry or thick, do it even more frequently. It is the best way to rehydrate your hair.
- Is there something to avoid to protect my hair in the summer? I heard chlorinated water damages the hair.
It does. More than that, seawater is also not good for the hair. One product for water will do all the work on your vacation. It is a non-washable SPF product with oil. Applied cosmetics will repel chlorine and salt, and your hair will not absorb them. And that's a plus for your karma and a little piece of love for yourself.

And if the contact with water is okay and you can handle its negative effects, there's something you must avoid. So the sun heats up; no surprises. Imagine what it would do to your already-hot hair. Spoiler: It will destroy your hair. If you don't want such a result, do not use aggressive or hot hair styling. Turn your dryer to cold mode, forget about bouffant, and say "Hell no!" to curling irons and hair straighteners. Naturalness is everything, and for special occasions, do brush styling.

And the last here is when you have washed your hair, gotten a cup of coffee, gone out in the backyard, and now you enjoy your drink while the sun is drying your hair. Perfect? Absolutely no. The summer sun burns so hard that it triggers the evaporation process. Once again, your hair loses moisture, dries out, and becomes brittle. If you like to dry your hair naturally, it is better to do it only at home.
- I have dyed/bleached hair. Is there special treatment for them?
Hair loses its color saturation faster in the summer. It can be explained by the ultraviolet light that affects the coloring pigment in the hair. Without the pigment, the color "fades." Walk under the sun with your freshly dyed, dark brown hair. You'll be light-colored just a few weeks later. From June to August, colored hair needs more treatment and attention. Use cosmetics with SPF and "color save"-labeled shampoo and conditioner.

Bleach-haired women should know that their hair is considered damaged in the professional environment. The pigment has literally been burned out of them, and exposure to the sun worsens their condition doubly. Nourishing and moisturizing items are a must-have. Don't spare any of them to keep your bleached hair smooth and shiny.
Best Hair Products for Summer
Three absolute rules to remember before picking a summer treatment for your hair. Firstly, choose products with an SPF value greater than 15. Secondly, use cosmetics with a light texture if you have thin hair; otherwise, they will contaminate it faster than usual. Thirdly, get rich products if you have curly or thick hair; it needs more treatment than you think.
