Keeping your hair protected in the sun is essential if you want soft, shiny and healthy locks when you return from your tropical and paradisial holiday. Just like SPF for the skin, it’s so easy to use on your hair, and there are lots of different sun protection formulas and textures you can use, such as oils, spritzes and creams, depending on your hair type and needs.
Why do I need sun protection for hair?
Just like your skin, your hair can burn and become damaged in the sun. Damaging UVA and UVB rays penetrate the hair-shaft, and although they can cause hair lightening for a short period of time, they inevitably cause dulling, split ends and breakage in the long-term.
