The Effects of Sun Exposure on Hair

Sun Exposure on Hair

We know our bodies need vitamin D, and the sun provides it. Vitamin D stimulates our hair follicles, supporting complete hair growth cycles. Hair loss is one symptom of vitamin D deficiency.

To supplement this deficiency, you could spend more time in the sun. Sunlight gives beneficial vitamin D, but UV rays can harm your hair and body. Overexposure to the sun often damages the hair shaft, the visible part of our hair. Too much sun can produce superoxide, which disrupts hair growth and causes thinning. Such disruptions can make hair follicles jump from the growth phase to shedding.

Damage from too much sun exposure can also have a negative effect on thinning hair by triggering compound superoxide production, which can temporarily interrupt the hair growth cycle. This interruption can cause hair follicles to skip from the growth part of the hair cycle to the shedding part.

While sunlight offers vital vitamin D, other sources won’t worsen hair loss like the sun can. A better option is taking supplements and eating foods naturally rich in vitamin D.

Wear a hat and avoid sunlight from 10 am to 4 pm to safeguard your hair. Always apply sunscreen to your scalp outdoors if you’re balding or have thin hair.

While balding lacks a cure, you can protect your scalp and consider scalp micro pigmentation. Through scalp micro pigmentation, specialists inject pigment, creating a natural, fuller hair appearance. It’s perfect for those with thinning hair or bald men wanting a shaved look.

It is an ideal solution for men or women facing a thinning head of hair, or for men who are bald that want to create a clean-shaven look. We offer Scalp Micropigmentation in over 50 US cities.
