It’s a well-known fact, that sun despite is enticing allure can cause havoc on your hair. The sun produces ultraviolet rays, UVA and UVB, which can with prolonged exposure cause damage to the outer layer of the hair. Flavex Lima, our hair health expert and treatment specialist warns, that unless you protect your hair from the sunshine you may experience discolouration, dehydration, broken or split ends as well as thinning.
Considering the current situation surrounding Covid, you are likely to be in dire need of some sunshine and a holiday. So, to ensure that the only thing turning green is your holiday destination and not your hair, we’ve put together a list of tips to protect your precious tresses from sun damage.
Flavex advises that you should treat your hair with the same care you would your skin, and that means protecting it!
There are several options to consider:
- Wear a sun hat preferably a wide brim that will not only cover your hair and scalp but provide additional protection to your neck and face.
- Apply Hair SPF before and throughout exposure. Most haircare brands now retail these.
- Try to cut back on the amount of shampoos as they tend to strip your hair from natural oils which protect your hair.
- Try and reduce how many times you use hot appliances on your hair if you are regularly exposed to the sunshine as this will stress the hair out and also dehydrate it.
In addition to the protective measure to be taken during exposure, Flavex recommends having some high-tech treatments. At Neville we offer the Hair Botox treatment, which is exclusive to Neville and is a great pre and post treatment to have. Hair Botox acts as a deep conditioner for a month and also helps make hair manageable by reducing frizz.
It’s high tech components, which include the famous tannin, help replenish the water, PH and keratin in your hair. Aside from the Hair Botox, Flavex offers a multitude of hair treatments to repair every case of hair cuticle to guarantee you with a summer of healthy hydrated hair.
