How to care for your hair in the sauna

Did you know that sauna heat can be beneficial to your hair growth and quality? Hair stylists will tell you that exposing hair to high heat, such as using straightening irons or curling tongs, can dry out your hair and cause it to become brittle and damaged. In actual fact, the heat of a sauna can promote hair growth and quality. The heat and humidity in the sauna boost blood circulation to the scalp. This means more oxygen and nutrients reach the hair follicles, which results in healthier, stronger hair as well as improved hair growth. Whilst sauna bathing is beneficial to the hair, it’s still important to take some steps to care for hair in hot and humid environments, such as the sauna. We’ve collected a few of our favourite tips from stylists and sauna enthusiasts and shared them with you below. Sources: Sauna From Finland, 2023; Yamada et al., 2008
