How many times do you apply sunscreen at the beach? ….to your hair.
If never is your answer, its okay! Most people haven’t. The unknown reality is that the sun damages not only your skin, but your hair. In addition, so many of today’s products are loaded with chemicals that repel sun, but still aren’t great for your hair’s health.
The Science of Sun damage on your Hair
Your hair is made of proteins — prominently keratin, DNA coded color pigment, and 25% water. This is all protected by your hair cuticle which keeps your strands strong and shiny. So what happens to your hair in the sun?
When your hair is exposed to excess sun, ultraviolet radiation breaks down the protective layering on the hair shaft and according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information deteriorates the color pigment making your hair dull, dry, and brittle.
