• HOW TO PROTECT YOUR HAIR FROM THE SUN

     

    We all know that sunscreen is an absolute MUST when it comes to being outside in the summer months. A good SPF is a girl’s best friend. However, your luscious locks need the same protection as your skin does. If not properly protected before spending time out in the sun, your hair can be prone to dryness, breakage, and color-fading (a huge NO-NO for anyone who spends a good chunk of money on coloring their hair). Here are a few quick tips to keep your hair healthy, even as the temperatures rise.


    BEFORE YOU HEAD OUTSIDE:

    Give your hair a spritz with a hair sunscreen! Yes, they do exist. Not only do they protect your  hair from harmful UV rays, but they also protect your scalp. Sunburn on the top of my head? No thanks! Redken makes a fabulous easy-to-use spray that is good for both color treated and non-color treated hair. Check out Redken Color Extend Sun Screen SPF 12.


    AFTER SUN EXPOSURE:

    You know how you always feel dry after spending all day outside? Well, your hair feels the same way. Use a deep conditioning mask to give your locks some moisture and to also prevent any color fading. Also, it’s absolutely necessary to get all of that SPF, salt and chlorine off your hair as well, to prevent any buildup. Frédéric Fekkai has a great Summer Hair collection. There is a Detox Shampoo, to get all of the gross off, and an After Sun moisturizing mask to give your hair the hydration it needs.

     

    THE EASY SOLUTION:

    Don’t have time to make these changes? Wear a hat. It will protect the majority of your hair, your scalp, and your face from the sun. Simple!
