Summer hair care must-haves
Time spent under the sun means you’re exposing your hair to its drying effects, which can leave your hair feeling brittle. With the right hair care products from our cruelty free sun care collection, you can help protect and summer-proof your hair before and after spending time in the sun.
We created the sun care line with UV protection to help defend hair from the drying effects of the sun. Think of it as a summer essential for your hair.
To help you understand how our sun care hair products work, we’ll explain a little further about what happens when your hair is exposed to the summer elements. UVA/UVB exposure creates free radicals and breaks down the protein structures in hair, including melanin. This means that sunlight can weaken your hair and cause your hair color to fade. And when your hair color fades from the sun, this is ultimately damaging your hair.*
The drying effects of the sun can also deplete it of moisture, causing it to look and feel dry. That’s why it’s so important to give your hair the daily care it needs both pre and post-sun exposure.
If you spend time at a pool or the beach this season, it’s vital to understand the effects of chlorine and salt, too. Chlorine penetrates and also weakens hair, and can cause discoloration. Meanwhile, salt coats hair, leaving it feeling dry and rough. Read on for the routine and products you’ll need to protect your hair from these elements.
