The strength and elasticity of hair depends on the balance of proteins and lipids. When that balance is upset, problems arise. Lipids (give hair softness and elasticity) disappear due to the action of sunlight, salt water and chlorine. In the period until complete hair renewal, aggressive shampoos should be avoided and mild shampoos (with lipids) should be used daily, which restore the hair’s elasticity and softness. In addition, various hair masks and packs should be used. Women most often complain of damaged hair with chemical agents.
Hair can be full of electricity. The strands become entangled in knots. Hair color becomes uneven. One of the reasons for these problems is hard water in the continental parts of the state and in the basins. Also aggressive hair gels change the structure of the hair on the hair. They cause dandruff. On hot days, use shampoos and conditioners with a UV filter and hair protection products even during a normal walk.
A period of strong sun, salt water, and chlorine dries the hair. The most common problems are:
-charged hair (lack of moisture or lack of lipids)
-difficult combing of hair, especially blonde and long hair with a thinner structure (cystine-taurine chain has given way, which means the hair needs treatment)
-Uneven hair color (hair damage)
-the hair is stiff and the hair is dull
If your hair is stiff and has no shine then get a haircut and remove ends that cannot be regenerated. It is advisable to avoid any chemical treatment of the hair until complete recovery and hair renewal.
Preventive measures to protect hair from the sun
In percentage terms, most of the hair structure is protein. Lack of protein is seen in hair without volume and thin hair structure. The hair is soft. Very curly hair, thick matte hair show a large imbalance of lipids / proteins in favor of protein. Such hair is prone to blooming and drying. The sun has a bad effect on such hair because hair that lacks protein dehydrates faster. Such hair is more prone to damage. The basic prevention is intensive hair care. This means washing your hair often with mild shampoos that do not act aggressively on the hair. It is desirable to use a hair mask with a UV filter that will protect the hair from harmful UV radiation.
