Have you ever worn your hair with a part and been outside in the sun all day, forgetting to apply sunscreen and ending up with a nasty burn? (Don't worry you aren't the only one!)
How about gone outside on a cloudy day thinking that it's just an hour and it won't be too much sun?
The best is when you love to drive with your sunroof open but can't figure out just why your hair color especially on the left side keeps fading.
WELCOME to SUMMER :)
Here's a few tips and tricks for you:
To protect you hair color in the sun there's a few things:
When swimming, apply a leave in conditioner prior to jumping in the pool or ocean. Apply it and braid your hair or put it in a bun then enjoy swimming while not destroying your hair!
Deep Condition after prolonged time in the water! Let it sink into your hair for a good 10-20 minutes for extra moisture and protection.
Utilize a color-protecting spray such as the Aveda Sun Care Spray. It's amazing at keeping your color exactly the color you started with!
For your skin there are many options to think of such as:
Loading up on a great sunscreen. Don't forget your neck and ears though!
Utilizing a tinted moisturizer with a strong SPF. Several of our stylists LOVE Aveda's Tinted moisturizers because they give a strong pigment while blocking out the sun. Great to protect you from aging, sunburns and it gives your skin an even glow!
Wearing a hat AFTER applying sunscreen everywhere!
Most importantly, remember to reapply!!
We hope this gives you a few tips and tricks to help you these summer months. Stay Cool!
