Improve Your Hair Naturally

With spring coming to a close, it’s time to prepare for the summer heat. The heat of the sun or styling tools can damage hair, causing it to feel dry and brittle resulting in breakage and split ends. It’s important to maintain hair health by using natural ingredients and deep conditioning treatments. These self-care services help revive and restore hair’s luster by protecting hair from the heat, sun and salt of outdoor activities. At Under The Sun, we pride ourselves in using all-natural ingredients in ALL our products. Below we have highlighted 3 of favorite natural treatments that help encourage total hair health.

1. Scalp Massage: Increase blood flow + promote hair growth

There are a lot of factors that contribute to hair health but one of the most over-looked is stimulation. Massaging dilates small arteries within your scalp that increase the blood flow to the follicles. They can also improve hair texture, making it thicker and stronger over time. Giving yourself a scalp massage on the regular, in addition to using natural ingredients can help your hair grow faster + appear healthier looking.
