With the sun out and more beach trips up on your itinerary, the chance of damaging your hair is inevitable this season. We often forget that our hair can be damaged just as easily as our skin, if not more so. Apart from sun exposure, blame all that hair dyeing, heat styling, other chemical-loaded treatments, and other stressors (like metal ions that you get from showering in tap water).
