In summer the hair suffers more than in other seasons. The sun, the sea, the many washes and then the "drying", suffer the hair more than anything else!
Summer is denser than any other season, while the normal seasonal shedding is observed in the months of September and October. So, enjoy them now that they are denser than at any other time of the year. And above all, don't bother them unnecessarily!
our hair in the summer
During the summer, we should all, even if we have extremely rich hair, not expose it to the sun, as we cause oxidative damage to the hair follicles. Excessive exposure to the sun - mainly - hurts them, causing even hair loss due to the sun.
Useful tips for women and men to protect and what to do in case of hair loss:
You should not sit for a long time in the sun, especially if the hair is wet.
After swimming, you must rinse your hair from the salt water, otherwise, combined with the dehydration of the hair from the sun, it causes hair breakage and thinning of the hair.
If you already have thinning hair, the use of a hat and sunscreen (for men and women) is essential because you risk burning the scalp.
Balding men must use sunscreen on the scalp. The skin is very thin on the bald head, the sun hits it straight and the risk of long-term problems is huge.
Silicone-based products give the hair. Liquid keratin can be used to treat damaged hair, which gives volume, smoothes the hair and protects its cuticle.
