Can Sun Exposure Damage Hair?
By Elizabeth Lilly for Fabulosamente Latina
The enviable sunlit look has inspired a multitude of sun-activated hair bleaching products. Unfortunately, the lightened look that hints at wellness and outdoor fun is actually a sign of UV damage. UV light has been shown to break down hair pigment and cause it to lose protein, making protection from the sun essential.
Lighter Hair, Beware
On days when hat hair may be an issue, style your hair without parting -- it will help you avoid a painful sunburn that will peel and flake off like dandruff. Also, use hair products that contain UV protection to help guard your tresses on a regular basis.
