How to protect hair from the sun
Summer is already very close, which means the period of active sun, UV rays and their harmful effect on hair begins. Dermatologists advise that it is very important to apply sunscreen not only to the skin of the face, but also to the scalp and hair, especially if you spend the whole day outdoors – even in the city, at least in the woods, even on the beach.
Also, experts note that the scalp, like in any other areas of the body, is not immune from melanoma. And hair under the influence of rays of type A and B becomes dry, brittle and dull. Some dermatologists advocate the use of chemical filters – they are invisible on the hair, easily applied, others – for rubbing the sanblock in the scalp, which is also exposed to radiation, as well as other open areas. The truth is somewhere in the middle: the best protection from the sun is the headdress, and a protective spray can be applied to the hair, which also has the function of a moisturizing and antioxidant agent.
