Sun baths, beach, blue oceans, swimming pools…what a lovely ! But if you do not take some precautions all this enjoyable things can damage your hair very badly.
The sun damages your skin, it can damage your hair, too. Saltwater or chlorine also dried your hair.
The sun cook the hair shaft, the color will be gone, your hair become faded and bleached. And also the UV rays dry out hair.
Swimming beats up your hair, too. Take a plunge in a pool and while you’re doing the breaststroke, chlorine is stripping your hair of its natural protective oils. If you’re a blonde, you may find your locks taking on an unflattering greenish cast. That’s caused by the copper molecules and other pool chemicals that bind to the protein in the hair shaft.
A dip in the ocean stresses hair in another way. The heavy salt content in seawater draws water out of your hair and skin.
