Summer is here!!! As we know this is the time of the year when most of us spend lots of time outside doing countless outdoor activities. Our hair locks then become more vulnerable to suffer the effects of the sun’s UV rays.
What are UV Rays?
According to the American Cancer Society UV radiation, are rays of energy emitted (sending out) from any source, there are many types of radiation. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is a form of electromagnetic radiation. “The main source of UV radiation (rays) is the sun, although it can also come from man-made sources such as tanning beds and welding torches.”
Therefore, prolonged exposure to UV rays can damage the outside cover of the hair strand, called the cuticle. Signs associated with UV Ray’s damage to your hair include discoloration, brittle strands, split ends, and even thinning and frizziness. To avoid any hair damage due to UV Rays we recommend to always wear a hat during outdoor activities as this will help protect your hair and skin, when a hat is not an option look for hair products that contain components that can combat against UV Rays.
Tec Italy has a patented component to protect hair against UV rays called TRICEL-R. This patented component is a combination of active natural elements of plant origin, potentiated for a greater defense against free radicals, agents that cause hair deterioration. TRICEL-R is found in many Tec Italy products, and to make it easier, we have curated a list of products we believe can help you protect your hair from UV rays while adding hydration and nutrients for overall wellness. Furthermore, these products can be used in all hair Types and are color safe!
