How do you protect your skin and hair from UV rays?
Skin and hair are damaged by ultraviolet rays daily.
UV rays cause the oxidation of hair because hair is made of protein, and oxidation produces a substance called cysteic acid, which is the cause of hair damage and has a major effect on the hair. This can lead to roughness, dryness, split ends, breakage, dryness, and colour fading
When ultraviolet rays reach the scalp, inflammation occurs, just as it does on the face and body, and the circulatory function of blood vessels and the lymphatic system decreases.
This causes the blood vessels and lymphatic circulation to deteriorate and prevent sufficient nutrients from reaching the hair follicles. In addition, the cells that aid with hair growth are also damaged, which can lead to hair loss.
Another cause of damage is the lack of UV protection for the hair and scalp, even if the skin is protected from UV rays.
The first thing to do is to take care of your hair.
One way you can use to protect your hair from UV rays is to keep it well moisturized.
Just as you apply sunscreen to prevent UV rays on your skin, you should also apply sunscreen to your hair. Whether it is an oil, cream or spray, as long as it contains a high amount of SPF so apply it before you leave the house.
Another way is to use a moisturizing treatment when you wash your hair.
For any suggestions for moisturizing products, we would recommend Adjuvant’s “COOL” series.
If you have a sensitive scalp, we recommend washing your scalp more gently than usual with lukewarm water and the tips of your fingers to avoid further irritation.
It is also recommended to moisturize your scalp with a scalp treatment or scalp remedy.
