●  EXPOSURE TO UV RAYS

Before stepping out, cover your head with a scarf or hat to create a barrier between scalp and environment. It helps protect your scalp and hair roots and prevent them from weakening and drying out.

●  PROTECTIVE HAIRSTYLES

Keep your hair protected by hairstyles like loose braids, buns, ponytails. This reduces the scalp exposure to pollution, sun and environment.

●  UV SPRAY

You can also use UV filtering sprays if you can't minimize the sun exposure. This can also protect your hair to an extent.
