How you can protect your hair from damage caused by the sun and UV rays - with sun protection powder
Hey you! Summer is here and we all love to enjoy the sun. Unfortunately, sun rays can also damage our hair. UV rays cause our hair to fade more quickly, become dry and brittle. But don't worry, there's an easy solution: sunscreen powder! In this blog post I'll show you how you can protect your hair from harmful sun rays with this natural product and also protect the environment.
1. Why UV rays damage your hair
UV rays are not only bad for your skin, but also for your hair. If you spend a lot of time in the sun, the UV rays can damage your hair and weaken it. The rays penetrate deep into the hair and destroy the keratin, which is responsible for the strength and elasticity of the hair. This can make your hair brittle, break or split more easily. The color of your hair can also be affected by UV rays and cause it to fade or discolor. To protect your hair from the harmful effects of UV rays, you should use special products that contain sunscreen. A good option is sunscreen powder, which is easy to apply and protects against both UV rays and moisture. This means you can enjoy your day at the beach worry-free without having to worry about damaging your hair.
2. How to protect your hair on the beach
Sunscreen powder is effective protection. This contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, which reflect UV rays and thus protect your hair. The advantage of sunscreen powder is that it is easy to use and does not leave a greasy residue like many other products. Simply apply a small amount to the palm of your hand and then distribute it evenly throughout your hair.
As an alternative, you can also use our DryBun, which actually keeps your hair dry when showering. DryBun is very suitable as sun protection because your long hair is enclosed as if in a capsule.
However, note that sunscreen powder or DryBun are not a replacement for a hat or scarf, as neither covers the entire head. So if you are particularly sensitive or want to spend a long time on the beach, you should also wear a hat.
3. Why sun protection powder is particularly helpful
Sunscreen powder is a great way to protect your hair from the damaging effects of the sun and UV rays. Unlike other products such as sprays or lotions, which are often heavy and sticky on the hair, sunscreen powder is easy to apply and feels almost invisible. In addition, it has the advantage of not only protecting the hair but also protecting the scalp from burns. Sunscreen powder is made up of tiny particles specifically designed to absorb and reflect UV rays. When you apply it to your hair, it forms a layer on the surface that acts as a barrier against harmful rays. It is also waterproof so can be used at the beach or pool. Another great thing about sunscreen powder is that it doesn't weigh down or make hair sticky like other products. There are no residues or greasy stains on your clothes or towels. Instead, you can easily comb and style your hair without making it look stiff or unnatural. So if you're looking for a simple and effective way to protect your hair from sun and UV damage, then you should definitely consider trying sunscreen powders.
4. How to use sun protection powder correctly
First, you'll want to section your hair to make sure you cover all areas. Then put a small amount of the powder on the palm of your hand and apply it to the scalp with light movements. If necessary, repeat this process on any areas that will be exposed to the sun. Make sure to distribute the powder evenly and avoid a layer that is too thick. When you're finished, gently comb your hair to remove excess powder and create a natural look. It's that easy to protect your hair from UV rays with sun protection powder!
Using DryBun as an alternative is much faster. Simply make a bun, put on the DryBun, DONE! As a nice side effect, you not only protect your hair, but are particularly environmentally friendly as there are no residues on the beach or in the water.
5. What alternatives to sun protection powder are there
If you're looking for alternatives to sunscreen powder, there are a few products you can try. One option is hairspray with UV protection. It forms a protective layer on your hair, preventing it from being damaged by the sun. Leave-in conditioners with UV filters are also an option. They not only protect your hair from the sun's rays, but also provide additional care. If you prefer something more natural, you can also use coconut oil or shea butter. These oils have a natural sun protection factor and also protect your hair from UV rays. However, you should be careful not to use too much, otherwise it can weigh down your hair and pollute the environment at the same time.
Conclusion: Sun protection powder offers good protection against UV rays and is easy to use
The conclusion is clear: sun protection powder offers good protection against UV rays and is easy to use. Especially on the beach, where the sun's rays are particularly intense, using it can be a real “lifesaver” for your hair. Most people think of sunscreen products as creams or sprays, but powder has several advantages: It's easy to apply and doesn't leave a sticky residue or greasy film on the scalp. It is also easy to apply in windy conditions. Another plus point: The powder not only protects against UV rays, but also against moisture and salt water. This means your hair stays shiny and supple even after hours in the sea. So if you haven't tried sun protection powder yet, you should definitely do so - your hair will thank you!
On the negative side, it should be noted that the powder is not particularly environmentally friendly.
