Artichoke: The ultimate repair for sun-damaged hair

The ultimate repair for sun-damaged hair

Whether you’re at the beach or by the pool this summer remember sun care doesn’t stop with your skin - your hair needs nurturing too. Even if you don’t colour, bleach or use daily styling tools your hair still suffers damage from external factors such as pollutants, smoke and of course sun radiation. This strain on the hair shaft can leave the lipids in the cuticle damaged, leading to dull, frizzy, dry, weak and brittle hair.

Restore shine and intense condition

Now you can get super soft, sleek hot-weather hair with Green People’s Sun & Sports Shampoo and Conditioner, featuring an exciting new ingredient: Artichoke leaf extract. Working as a protective shield to the cuticles in the hair shaft, Artichoke Leaf extract leaves the hair’s surface flat and smooth giving you shiny, sleek and frizz-free locks.

In sunlight, the lipids that protect and give shine to the hair are oxidised, causing damage which affects their performance, leaving hair dull and lacklustre. Artichoke Leaf extract preserves the surface of the hair leaving both natural and coloured hair with high shine and brilliance - hair that looks thick, healthy and tangle-free.

Perfect for poolside

Green People Sun & Sports Shampoo is an effective yet gently cleansing shampoo, excellent for removing chlorine and mineral deposits left on the hair. Both shampoo and conditioner boast Plant Proteins to restructure damage to the hair shaft. They also include Pineapple extract, which is high in natural enzymes to remove dead skin cells and debris that accumulate on the hair and scalp with the use of heavy styling products and hairsprays. Marshmallow and Chamomile extract are added to gently soothe sun-damaged hair and scalp.
