The sun protection conversation almost never includes hair – but it should. Exhibit A: feel the top of your head. You’ll probably notice that the top layers feel coarse and dry – that’s probably because they’re getting blasted by UV rays on a daily basis. Now, compare it to the hair underneath, at the nape of your neck. Baby soft.
Your hair may not show damage as obviously as skin, but if you pay attention, the signs are clear. UV rays are super-drying, leading to brittle strands and breakage. Add chlorine and/or salt water to the equation, and the damage intensifies.
The good news is, tons of our stylers are UV protective, and help protect hair from the drying effects of the sun. So, try to use at least one in your daily regimen.
