PREVENT SCALP AND HAIR SUNBURN
 

Many people forget the importance of protecting your hair and your scalp from the damaging effects of over exposure to the sun.  Protective sunscreen should be applied to your hair and scalp prior to going out in the sun. Sunburn or any form of sun induced tissue damage on the scalp can trigger an inflammatory response, damaging the hair follicles and resulting in hair loss. Although your hair does not contain living cells, ultraviolet rays (UVA & UVB) may wreak havoc on your hair by altering the chemical consistency of color treated hair and perms and lead to a host of problems such as split-ends, breakage, loss of pigmentation and even premature hair loss.  Dr. Ziering suggests using Phytoplage High Protection Sun Spray
