Easy Homemade Masks For Sun Damaged Hair

By Somya Ojha

Sun rays can cause severe damage to your tresses. That is why, hair care experts urge people to avoid prolonged exposure to it, as it can damage the cuticle. This, in turn, can leave you with dull, brittle and discoloured hair. If not taken care of, the sun damage can also lead to split ends and hair fall.

That is why, it is imperative to treat sun damaged hair. While you can always head to a salon for a damage treatment, it is also better to try homemade treatments that are effective and safe.
