The sun affects both our skin and our hair, and those UV rays can be harmful to our hair and scalp. Now it is up to us to protect our hair and scalp from them. To create good protection, we need a product that contains UV absorbers as well as sunscreen. Why? Because the absorbers will deflect the UV rays from the hair and the SPF will make sure our scalp is protected as well.
The scalp damage
The sun makes our skin age faster, and it does the same to our scalp and hair. They might not get wrinkly, but the scalp could lose its ability to regenerate cells and maintain healthy follicles when it loses its moisture. When we are exposed to the sun, our scalp loses that very same moisture.
The hair damage
The sun can burn unprotected hair similarly to how it burns unprotected skin. Hair that’s been exposed to the sun has open cuticles, which results in lower levels of moisture and melanin. This is when we start getting weak, dry, and frizzy hair, and the damage is even worse with dyed hair, which will lose its colored effects. Protecting your dyed hair means you won’t have to visit the salon as frequently because the color will stay on better. Yay for saving money!
The bottom line
Protecting your hair and scalp from the damages of the sun will help you get healthier, stronger hair, and keep it in good condition for longer. Start incorporating it into your daily beauty routine and thank us later.
