Tour de tête
(article translated from French)
If we are more and more conscious about protecting our skin from the sun, we often still tend to neglect our hair. Serious mistake!
“UV rays create an erosion of the hydrolipidic film that protects our hair from aggressive factors such as free radicals, salt and chlorine. When it is empeded, this natural protection makes the scales of our hair more vulnerable, which can ultimately lead to a loss of keratin and cause a break in the fiber,” says Yannick Brisebois, co-owner of U Salon Boutique, in Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville.
Yannick Brisebois adds: “We often associate solar products with holidays, but UV filters should be applied throughout the summer season to preserve the color and health of the hair!”
