Is It True That The Sun Can Damage Your Hair?

Ellips - Is it true that the sun can damage your hair?

Is it true that both hair and face need protection from the heat of the sun?

We have definitely not skipped putting on sunscreen at some point in our life before going outdoors. Especially if it’s a full day activity, a sunscreen in the bag is definitely a must for a re-application every 2 hours. Now, have you ever thought that it’s not just our skin that needs protection from the sun? It turns out that our hair needs protection too Ladies! Here’s why: 

UVA and UVB rays can damage the outer layers of the hair cuticle called keratin and melanin. Constant damage to these 2 layers can cause hair to look dry and difficult to manage. Something that has become a sort of public secret is the fact that hair can change colour with enough exposure to the sun, but it doesn’t end there, your scalp can also get sunburnt, causing itchiness and dandruff. Oh no!! 

Do you want beautifully healthy hair? Then what you have to do is protect every strand of hair from the harmful heat of UV rays. Here’s what you can do to protect your hair from the damage!

Avoid The Sun

Avoid being exposed to the sun rays between 10am to 3pm as much as possible! The ray of the sun during this period can cause hair to break easily, leading to split ends. If you must be outdoors, make sure to wear a head cover to protect hair from sun exposure. We’ve always been told to save for a rainy day, well, this time round be sure to hat up for a sunny day! 

Say Yes To The Right Haircare Products

Do you guys know how hair becomes dry and easily broken? It’s because a lot of people assume that hair doesn’t need extra protection, however one of the most common mistakes occurs in selecting your haircare. 

As mentioned previously, hair that is constantly exposed to the sun can deplete important proteins in hair. To restore hair’s keratin levels, you need a haircare product which also contains keratin! We’d love to introduce you to our small yet mighty hair saviour that is Ellips Hair Vitamin Pro Keratin Complex!

The pro-Keratin Complex in this Ellips Hair Vitamin Pro-Keratin series can restore the keratin levels depleted by the heat of hairstyling tools and the hot sun. Not only that, Ellips Hair Vitamin Pro-Keratin Complex also has other ingredients which allows it to nourish deep into the hair strand. Hair looks healthier, shinier and easier to manage. One example of this can be found in our Hair Repair variant of the Ellips Pro-Keratin Complex Series which also contains Jojoba Oil to maintain hair moisture and stimulate new hair growth. 

On the other hand, the Silky Black variant from the same range contains candlenut and Aloe Vera oil to overcome dandruff and make black hair shiny. Another variant that you can’t miss out on is the Smooth and Silky with Aloe Vera and Pro-Vitamin B5 to strengthen each hair strand. Hair becomes smooth like silk and easier to manage. 

Since you’re aware of the dangers sun rays have on unprotected hair, let’s keep reminding ourselves to take better care of our hair from now on!
