The outward part of the hair, “hair shaft”, is sensitive to external effects; whether they are mechanical (heat styling), physical (sun/pollution) or chemical (color/perm/straightner).
Excessive sun exposure is the most frequent cause of hair shaft’s structural damage. Sunlight damages the hair through the loss of hair proteins as well as degradation of hair pigment. Hair protein degradation is induced by
UVB radiation – responsible for hair protein loss and
UVA radiation – responsible for color changes.
Absorption of radiation in photosensitive amino acids of the hair and their photochemical degradation produces free-radicals. Melanin can partially immobilize free radicals and block their entrance in keratin matrix, it also absorbs and filters adverse UV radiations. Therefore, melanin is important for direct and indirect protection of hair proteins. Protecting the cuticle is very important for keeping hair shaft’s integrity. SunPotion with UV filters can help shield the hairs keratin and protect the hair’s melanin.
SunPotion, with Aloe and White Nettle Extract offers a nutitional barrier that, not only control frizz and hydration but shields the hair from the sun and pollution.
