Why UV Protection Is So Important For Your Hair...

We have all started to wake up to how important sun protection is for our skin; but when lathering on that factor 50 to protect your youthful looks from harmful UV rays, have you ever stopped to think about the effects the sun could be having on your hair and scalp?

Whether you’ve managed to grab a ticket abroad (you lucky thing!) or are enjoying a UK mini break to the beach this summer, remember your scalp is an extension of your skin and it deserves the same care and consideration when it comes to sun protection. 

And sun damage isn’t limited to your skin, it can play havoc with your hair, causing side effects like dehydration, reduced strength, poorer elasticity, decreased shine and colour fade. Luckily, we have an array of sun safe products that provide UV protection, ready to save your hair this summer, no matter what the British weather may throw at you!
