It’s that time of year again when we want to absorb the sun’s rays but not lose our hair color in the process.
Sun damage to the hair can manifest as faded hair color, brittle and dry hair shafts, and split ends.
Here are a few tips on keeping your color from fading in the sun and keeping it healthy all summer long:
● Keep your hair covered as much as possible whenever you are outside.
● Use a salon product that is formulated for the outdoors and has SPF or sunscreen in it.
● Before going into a pool, wet your hair, or wet hair and add conditioner to it. Having your hair wet or by applying conditioner to damp hair, it will be more resistive to chlorine penetrating into the hair and lightening your color.
Blondes will also benefit from this. Chlorine can make blond hair look gray or green.
