It is Carnival time again in Trinidad and Tobago. For nationals and tourists alike Carnival means fun in the sun! Whether you are jumping up in the band or laying in the sand the sun is going to affect you and your hair. You probably never thought as you slather on the sunscreen on your skin that you should protect your hair but; the sun rays can bleach and over-dry your hair and can result in breakage.
Green People discusses how the sun affects your hair:
Everyone knows that the sun damages your skin but have you ever thought how the heat and UV rays might affect your hair?
The sun’s rays are very powerful – we can all recognise that through how fast sunburn can develop on unprotected skin – so it is only logical that they will have an effect on your hair. UV rays cause the most environmental damage to hair, more than blow drying and chlorine, so it is an important factor to consider if you want to look after your hair.
Whilst it won’t be damaged forever – it will eventually re-grow – it will suffer breakages and lack of moisture, leaving it looking weakened and unhealthy. If you wish to keep your skin in good condition this summer, why not complement your beautiful skin with beautiful hair?
