Dermatologists preach the importance of daily sun protection for our skin. But what about for our hair?
“Hair suffers sun damage as much as skin and needs daily protection, especially if it’s been chemically treated,” says Kris Sorbie, Redken's global artistic director of color. While UVB rays can make your hair brittle, UVA rays can dull its color. Bleached strands are particularly at risk. Without protection, "they could turn yellow if exposed to sun," says Sorbie.
Thankfully, as with skin care, hair care products help solve the sun conundrum. Here are a few leave-in strand-savers that will keep your hair shiny, soft, and safe from the sun’s rays.
