Under the influence of high temperatures hair lose moisture rapidly, become noticeably drier.
Ultraviolet radiation destroys the top layerHair - the cuticle. Damaged cuticle is not a protective function to the full, the hair become stiff, lose elasticity, fit badly, appear split ends. Under the influence of UV hair coloring pigments are destroyed, so hair becomes lighter hair "fade" and sometimes "burn out."
