Sun Damaged Hair
Scientists at Living Proof have discovered that hair is damaged just as much by the average tropical vacation as it is when bleached. Yikes! And if that's not horrifying enough, expert hair stylist Ward Stegerhoek shines light on how the sun can wreak havoc on our tresses. "[The sun] breaks down the protein in the hair's protective cuticle layer and its internal cortex, thereby weakening it and making it more prone to breakage." But before you fret too much, know a cure is in sight: Alterna's Summer Sun Recovery Spray ($20) not only quenches hair with moisturizing benefits and adds shine, but will also protect hair from future harm. Whew, crisis averted!
