The summer season is finally coming through– the sun’s out, hair’s out! This is the perfect time to let your beautiful locks bask under the sun but did you know that too much sun exposure can also cause damage to your hair? Find out why and how you can keep your hair happy and healthy throughout the summer heat!
When you spend a long day under the sun, you expose your hair to UVA and UVB rays which damage the outer layer of your hair strands. Because of this, your hair ends up being dry, brittle, and more prone to breakage.
Also, do you notice that dark colored-hair becomes lighter in the sun? Though this may aesthetically seem like a good thing, it actually burns your strands– a common sign of discoloration due to sun overexposure. So, what more if you overexpose your bleached hair under the sun?
What should you do with sun-damaged hair?
No matter how much you love staying under the bright sun, it is important to not take sun-damaged hair for granted. Your hair becomes very dull and dry and is difficult to style, and without proper care, your strands grow weaker and unhealthier as time goes by. But don’t you worry, there are plenty of ways to reverse the effects of sun damage– one being adding moisture and hydration to your strands with the help of the right hair care products!
