Expert-Approved Tips for Sporty Strands
Add Sweat Control
There’s no better time to remember the importance of treating your scalp with care than when perfecting your backhand or getting active, especially during the summer months.
Sweat is a natural byproduct of physical activity, but when left on the scalp it can impair scalp health and the hair growth environment. Sweat contains salt, minerals and other compounds that can accumulate on the scalp and clog follicles. It can also mix with bacteria and fungi on the scalp, leading to an imbalanced scalp microbiome.
If you’ve been rallying against a sweaty scalp, the Clarifying Scalp Scrub is the perfect solution to get your scalp back on match point. Formulated with powerful active ingredients, MONPURE’s Clarifying Scalp Scrub effectively removes excess sweat, impurities, and buildup while moisturising the scalp. Regular exfoliation, especially after a sweaty workout, maintains a healthy scalp-skin environment, promoting optimal hair growth and overall scalp health.
Shield Strands from UV Rays
Outdoor workouts are an essential part of any summer routine. However, UV radiation can cause significant damage to both the hair shaft and the scalp. UVB radiation breaks down essential proteins in the hair, such as disulfide bonds, leading to a weakened hair structure, increased porosity, and loss of colour. UVA radiation penetrates deep into the hair's cuticle and cortex layers, resulting in colour fade, brittleness, and surface irregularities.
MONPURE harnesses the power of vegan silk peptides to provide a physical and breathable barrier a physical and breathable barrier against these environmental aggressors, reducing the damage caused by UV rays and heat. Introduce the Shampoo + Conditioner, and Nourish and Stimulate Scalp Mask into your regime to rally against oxidative stress, shield strands from heat damage, maintain colour vibrancy, and improve overall hair health with every use.
Keep Sporty Styles in Place
When serving up your workout hairstyle, swap out elastic hair ties for silk scrunchies. Elastic hair ties can cause tension on the root of the hair, leading to breakage down the hair shaft and split ends. Hold your sporty styles in place minus the snags, with the Style & Protect Scrunchie Trio.
