As the weather warms up and you spend more time outdoors, you may start to notice your locks becoming dry, rough and dull. Just like the heat and sun affect our skin, they also affect our hair. Here are a few tips to deal with summer hair emergencies.
UV rays are more direct in the summer and unless you are wearing a hat, your hair is exposed to these harmful rays which cause dryness and brittleness. To protect against UV damage, apply Fekkai Pre-Soleil Hair Mist before you spend an extended amount of time outdoors. The formula contains UV filters that protect hair while controlling frizz.
If you are spending extended amount of time in the sun, chances are you are swimming either at the beach or the pool. Chlorine and salt water dry out strands and leave a gritty, rough texture that can easily become a mess. Make sure you rinse your hair immediately after you swim to remove any chemicals or debris. Rene Furterer Sun Care Repairing After Sun Shampoo nourishes and gently purifies hair after sun and water exposure.
Color-treated hair is especially vulnerable to UV and heat damage. If you notice your color beginning to fade, add a protective mask to your routine. PHYTO Phytocitrus Color Protect Radiance Mask seals the hair cuticle to prevent fading and nourishes strands so they remain soft and smooth.
Depending on where you live, humidity may also be a problem for your hair in the summer months. To avoid hair that immediately frizzes when you step outside, use a leave-in conditioner such as Klorane Leave-In Fluid with Papyrus Milk. The lightweight cream coats hair to protect it against dampness and moisture.
