Reverse Sun-Damaged Hair With 5 Easy Steps
Remember when you were told to stock up on sunscreens to protect your skin from damage? Apparently, the sun damages the hair too. Now that you know, the PURC Sun protection series has you all covered to protect those lush waves of your hair. But before jumping in and making your Rapunzel story come true, here’s all you need to know about sun-damaged hair and hair repair.
While we often follow a strict regime for the maintenance of our skin, we forget to do so when it comes to our luscious hair. Sun protection is just one step in the big world of hair care that we need to keep in mind, especially now that the world is experiencing the negative effects of ozone depletion.
The Woe Of How Sun-damaged Hair Looks:
The last time you stepped out into the scorching sun, you probably came back home feeling exhausted. Your hair probably has a similar story to narrate. This becomes very clearly visible when one has sun-damaged hair and you can identify it by these signs.
- Suddenly noticing your hair has changed colour? That must be the UV rays reacting with the melanin to lend a different shade to your hair.
- Run your hands through your tresses and if you find the once smooth texture to now be replaced by a grainy, brittle roughness, your hair needs immediate care. PURC sun protection can be your go to option.
- Split ends and strands breaking frequently could be another way sun damage manifests itself.
A Study In Cause Of Sun-Damaged Hair:
There is a very strong scientific context to how sun damage is caused. Cuticle, which is the outermost layer of the hair, is meant to safeguard the core from external factors including radiations. But consistent exposure to UV rays causes hair impairment as the amino acids react and lose their protective potential. Eventually, the core is harmed and the damage starts showing.
PURC Sun protection series, after extensive research, has created products that will help in hair repair from the onslaught of the glaring sun.
People Who Need To Take Special Care:
Some people are at a greater risk of facing the consequences of sun-damaged hair. Light-colored hair is more prone to the risks of UV damage while thicker-quality hair and darker shades provide more resistance against the heat waves. Being outdoor exposes one to more rays of the sun and this affects the hair quality more than people who usually spend their time indoors.
A product from PURC sun protection range Moroccan Argan Hair Oil will strengthen your hair and protect the shine of your hair. Made with argan oil rich in fatty acids, it prevents water loss thus maintaining the hydrated condition of the hair. With an extra layer of sesame oil, it ensures that any unwanted itchiness, irritated scalp is taken care of. The oil is extracted from the argan tree nuts found in the exotic southwestern Morocco.
Using natural products, it promotes the creation of keratin and strengthens the hair follicles thus having a positive impact at the root of the hair.
