There is only one month left of summer which means it’s time to squeeze in as much time outside, either in a park, by the pool, or at the beach. However, all this time spent in the sun or water can wreak serious havoc on your locks and can lead to moisture loss, unruly frizz, breakage, and color changes.
We are all well-versed on the importance of sun-block, but few people realize that UV exposure has a similar effect on hair as it does on skin. According to hair expert and Curl Talk author Ouidad, “UV Exposure can dry hair out, making it vulnerable to breakage much the same as the sun makes skin flake and peel from too much exposure.”
In addition to damage caused by the sun, salt water and chlorine can deplete hair’s moisture levels, leaving it flat, dry, dull and prone to breakage. And we can’t forget other issues like frizz and excess oil buildup- just some other lovely side-effects of nice weather!
There’s no need to worry though. With the right products, your hair can withstand any environmental abuse and become healthier and more radiant than ever!
