How UV Hair Protection Product Ingredients Work
Untreated hair fibres are progressively damaged by
exposure to UV radiation resulting in a decrease in
the tensile strength of the hair.
Destructive effect of UV concerns especially such
hair which was previously damaged by hair styling, for
example: dying, peroxiding or permanent contouring.
The efficient protection against UV damage by the
pre-treatment of hair with Lactolan® LS 5879 or
Seanamin® FP LS 5988. Lactolan® LS 5879 not
only gives photoprotection on normal hair but also on
Seanamin® FP LS 5988 - a protective and repairing
effect against UV radiation. It increases the photoprotecting
action up to 30%.

and condition, all the way from the root by forming
a protective shield on the hair. Using 1% and 5% active
