The Elements

Everyday elements cause damage to your hair. This damage is caused by the sun, heat, technical services, air conditioning and central heating as well as heated appliances.

SUN DAMAGE

Hair, unlike the skin, does not have any self-regeneration properties. In fact, the hair fibre does not receive any nutrients or vitamins. Sun exposure dries the hair out, causing accelerated aging and can affect the colour of the hair.

FREE RADICALS

Tobacco smoke, polluted air, UV rays, radioactive radiation, organic solvents and chemicals all contain free radicals and are regularly encountered in everyday life. Studies show that when hair is exposed to large amounts of free radicals for long periods of time, it ages faster – just like your skin.

AIR CONDITIONING

Air conditioning removes moisture from the air affecting the natural protection of the scalp and hair fibre, which is needed to help maintain hydrated hair. With this natural protection gone, hair can become dry, dull, weak and brittle.

HEATED APPLIANCES

Heat can cause lasting damage to hair. High or excessive heat can permanently break the disulfide bonds within hair strands that give hair its strength along with protein cross-links.
