If You're Not Protecting Your Hair from UV Damage, What Are You Doing?



Sun protection is a must for your skin and your hair. "Hair could be compared to a beautiful piece of fruit, having an outside 'skin' like the hair's cuticle to protect it. Once the outside of either gets damaged, the inside loses its excellence," says Kate Reid, editorial colorist and Design Director of COLOR.ME by Kevin Murphy. "Color, strength, and moisture all [get] lost much faster as it has no protection."

"If you don't protect your hair, the sun can actually shift your hair color and also change your hair texture by drying it out," adds Frédéric Fekkai colorist Daniel Sanchez, who has worked with Karlie Kloss and Kate Hudson. "On brunettes, the sun can bring unwanted warmth to the hair. On blondes, the sun can make the color fade faster and create serious dryness."

Those without color-treated hair aren't off the hook, either. As Reid explains, "uncolored hair still breaks down from sun and chlorine, salt and the cuticle becomes damaged creating a rough, dull outside on your hair which then doesn't reflect light and shine in the same manner."

Convinced yet? If you're in the market for the perfect sunscreen for your hair (that will protect your sheen and color) here are a list of 11 great options. Now go out and enjoy the sun, responsibly.
