How much burden does Ultraviolet rays cause to the hair

Advice for your hair from a professional hairstylist.

 

Singapore experiences many days of sunshine in a year, resulting in extended exposure to UV rays for your hair. Let us explain the effects of UV rays

 

UV rays cause the colour of the hair to change

 

For a country like Singapore that experiences neverending summer, the key point is that UV rays will cause the colour of the hair to change.

 

Uv rays cause new grown hair and dyed hair to become brighter and the colour of the hair to change. There is a tendency for the hair to beome more yellowish depending on the change. 

 

Furthermore, the colour changes tend to be larger in dye hair compared to new grown hair. The reason being that colouring causes the melanin pigment to be broken down. This leads to the hair becoming yellow quickly 

 

The changes in the hair due to uv rays

 

Following the change in colour, the cuticles in the hair will also change, Explosing the cuticles to uv rays causes them to peel off easily which causes damage. UV rays also cause the protein inside the hair to escape easily, causing the hair to empty on the inside and you may not be able to save the hair. 

 

When this happens, the best option will be to cut the hair away. Thus, let us be careful of the effects of UV rays 

 

 

 

How to protect your hair from UV rays?

 

 

 

There are various methods to protect your hair from UV rays. You can use an umbrella when going out or use a leave-in type of out house treatment with UV ray protection.
