Hair Tip of the Week

Rapunzel Hair Studio in Langford, BC – August 2nd, 2016

Having great hair does wonders to one’s confidence. Hair can can be a reflection of one’s personality, appearance and subconsciously it tells others how healthy we are. Did you know that sun damage is the most common cause of damage to hair shafts? Hair protein essentially breaks down and breaks down the integrity of hair protein, specifically Keratin, when exposed to UVB radiation wavelengths between 254 and 400nm. UVA radiation wavelengths are responsible for the fading or changes in colour. As these UVA wavelengths are absorbed, a photochemical reaction causes degradation of the amino acids in hair producing free radicals. Look for products that have UV blockers like Melanin and make sure you work it in from the hair tip right down to the roots.  Ask a Rapunzel stylist about what products might be best suited for your hair.
