As we all know, the summer sun can be dangerous. That’s why we lather our skin in all kinds of different lotions and potions that can best protect it. Keeping hydrated and making sure there is enough shade to step under is important to having a happy, skin-safe, burn-less summer. The really is nothing worse than not being able to move around at work on Monday because you forgot to re-apply that layer of sunscreen at the pool.
Just as your skin needs protection, so does your hair. The affects that UVA and UVB rays can cause are pretty serious. Hair cuticle damage is the most common damage during the summer months. The harmful rays break down cysteine, which is an important component of Hydrolyzed Keratin Protein. Cysteine gives HKP strength so when it’s attacked by the sun, the hair cuticle is weakened. When this happens, it leaves your hair dry and brittle and more susceptible to further damage.
The very best way to keep your hair out of the damage zone is to wear a hat. Understandably, that may not always be the best look or appropriate for whatever function you’re at, so using some sort of thermal protection like hair oil or heat spray will help absorb any harmful rays. Also, hats don’t do a great job at protecting your ends, which are the most important area to keep healthy.
Also make sure you’re using plenty of protection on your scalp. General high SPF sunscreen will do the trick and keep your scalp stay moisturized, providing the optimized environment for healthy hair growth. Making sure your scalp is hydrated will keep dandruff and peeling at bay.
