Desk Report: Damage caused by sun often turns black hair into brown.
Here are a few tips to help you prevent sun damage:
Use a leave-on conditioner after every wash and before you step out in the sun.
Cover your head with a scarf if you are scheduled to be out in the sun for a long duration.
Avoid using harsh chemical-based products on hair regularly. It is always preferable to use herbal products.
Do not go out in the sun with wet hair as it lets dirt stick to your freshly washed mane and makes it dry and unmanageable. Dry it completely before you step out.
Use an umbrella to avoid sun damage. Make it a habit.
Use a protein-rich hair mask once a week. Beat up one egg with a cupful of yoghurt and keep it on for 30 minutes before washing it off. It helps in repairing intense damage.
