It’s not only your skin that needs to be protected against the sun’s harmful UV rays
We all know the importance of SPF in our skincare regimen, but did you know that hair sunscreen is just as important for your scalp and tresses? The problem is UVA and UVB rays can really do a number on your strands. Along with water, salt, and the heat, the sun’s rays can leave your hair dry, brittle, and if you have colour-treated strands, faded.
While the best way to protect your hair in summer is to stay out of the sun or by wearing a hat (the bigger, the better), if you really want to let your locks loose, make sure you spritz in one of these UV hair protectants first.
