Ceramides are a completely natural component of lipids, which are found in skin, hair and nails. Their main function is to strengthen the cells, which makes them the ideal ingredient to combat the negative effects caused by environmental factors and the inevitable passing of time.
CERAMIDES: RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR HAIR’S HEALTH
Due to their lipid composition, ceramides repair the whole hair, from the exterior layers that appear with dryness or damage, to the internal structure. Their function is highly important, as they unify the cuticle and the cortex, acting as a sort of glue.
Aggressive environmental factors such as heat, sun, wind and humidity, aging and the chemical treatments that are part of today’s beauty regime are factors that leave our hair dry and brittle.
Summer is the worst time of year for our hair
UV rays weaken and affect the colour of hair, as do agents such as sea salt and chlorine in swimming pools, and make it doubly difficult to keep hair healthy during the summer months, which means that it is important to protect it and keep it hydrated, and highly recommended to take precautions before sun bathing.
The best way to protect hair during the summer
