How Can You Keep Your Hair Safe From The Sun?
Those who are passionate about beauty and skincare will tell you that no morning routine is complete without their sunscreen. Being a vital and essential product, you’re sure to find it in all morning skincare and beauty routines. But before you apply sunscreen, you need to understand what the term "sun protection factor," or SPF actually means.
SPF is a measure of how much solar energy or UV radiation is necessary to cause sunburn on your covered skin i.e. in the presence of sunscreen compared to unprotected skin. Sunburn protection increases as the SPF number rises. SPF-enriched products function as a shield to keep your locks smooth and moisturised while preventing them from becoming dry and brittle.
Is There A Sunshield For Your Hair?
We take great care of our skin and prevent it from sun damage. Before going outside, we wash it, moisturise it, and apply a substantial quantity of sunscreen. But we constantly overlook and disregard our hair, which is equally susceptible to UV rays and sun damage and requires the same amount of pampering and protection. Prolonged sun exposure damages the cuticle and causes pigment loss, which can result in extreme dryness of the hair. Sun rays can also strip moisture from the hair shaft, resulting in frizzy ends.
This problem only intensifies in the summer, as manes are entirely destroyed from the root to the tip by a combination of salty ocean water, chlorine-filled swimming pools, and severe sunlight. That is why sun protection for hair and scalp becomes critical. It has become extremely essential to apply hair care products that provide UV protection.
They are an excellent approach to protect your hair from sun damage. As these products provide a barrier that protects your scalp and moisturises the hair, preventing it from becoming further dry and damaged. These products have a significant function in preventing ultraviolet (UV) rays from penetrating the skin. Using these products, however, does not guarantee that no damage will occur; it only prevents it.
Benefits of using UV hair protection:
- Protecting against damaging UV rays.
- Fighting the frizz
- Tames unruly threads.
- Provides moisture to dehydrated hair.
- Enhances manageability.
- Tames flyways.
- Restores moisture to dry, frayed hair.
