When it comes to sun protection, we only think of our face and bodies. However, your scalp and strands need to be shielded from the sun’s rays too! Apart from causing damage to your scalp, UV rays can also make your hair more brittle and dry. Luckily, there are some incredible products out there that can help stop these issues from cropping up.
