With summer in full swing, there’s no doubt that you (and your hair) will be in and out of a pool. Sounds great, right? Except swimming pools contain a chemical that’s bad for your hair’s health… chlorine.
So, what does that mean for me? Here are a few ways chlorine is bad for your hair:
“Jeffrey, I do a lot of outdoor activities in the summer. How can I protect my hair from the sun?” – Sarah
That’s a wonderful question and I think many people can relate. Damage comes from a variety of factors, but during the summer months the sun is definitely a huge contributor to dry, damaged hair and color fading.
Did you know that, like skin, hair has melanin and keratin that acts as a natural “shield” against the sun’s harmful rays? Unfortunately, it doesn’t renew itself like our skin does. Once hair shafts are damaged, they cannot be repaired. That’s when your hair will feel dry, becomes difficult to style and does not look its best.
So, what’s the best solution? Wearing a hat or covering your hair with a elegant scarf is by far the best protection for your hair. If that does not fit your lifestyle or activity, I highly recommend the Phytoplage Protective Sun Veil. This product is lightweight – doesn’t weigh hair down – SPF for your hair! It helps preserve color and prevent fading by filtering out the sun’s damaging rays, while also adding a luminous veil of shine. So this summer make sure to protect not only your body, but your beautiful hair as well!
