Protect your Hair from Sun Damage this Summer

You are here

The holiday season is fast approaching and for many of us this means a week away in sunny bliss.

A relaxing getaway is amazing for our well-being but can sometimes take its toll on our hair. Here’s a guide on a common holiday hair mishap and how to prevent/repair it…

Sun Damage

There are two kinds of ultraviolet radiation the sun exposes our hair to, UVA and UVB. UVA is responsible for damage such as colour changes, and UVB radiation is responsible for hair protein loss; this can make hair dry, frizzy and hard to manage. There are a couple of steps to minimize this damage.

Step 1: Limit sun exposure to a minimum. When on holiday, cover hair with a hat or scarf to avoid direct sun exposure which can damage the hair.

Step 2: After sun exposure, use an intensive conditioner to restore your hair and prevent it from feeling dry.

If you do over expose your hair to the sun, don’t worry, your hair will just need a little extra TLC to get it back on track. The Hairapeutix pre-shampoo treatment is perfect to help replenish hair after sun exposure, as it is a 100% natural oil product. A unique combination of natural and organic ingredients designed to soak into the hair, replenishing the condition, as well as helping to control frizz. If you have over exposed your hair to the sun, or if you are suffering from dry, frizzy, unmanageable hair, this treatment is for you!
