Did you know the sun can fade your hair color? Give blonde or grey hair unwanted yellow tones? It even breaks down hair proteins, causing it to look dull and weaken the bonds. If you don't already use hair products with UV protection, then now's the time to start! It is just as important to protect your hair from the sun as it is for your skin...
Here's a breakdown of our FAVORITE UV protectants to keep your hair healthy and bright all summer long:
I honestly feel like I have mentioned this product in almost every blog but I just can't help it - it's that good! For someone who has never been able to use dry shampoo because it doesn't work, this is a god send. It removes all build-up and odor on your scalp, leaves no white residue like other dry shampoos, and maintains the richness of your color (it comes in dark tones for brunettes, and light tones for blondes). PLUS - it protects your hair from UV rays, helping maintain your protection on day 2, 3, or 4!
This is the perfect go to for an all-in-one product. What DOESN'T this CC cream do?! It moisturizes, smoothes, softens, provides shine, protects from heat damage, and makes your hair more manageable with light hold. OH - and obviously provides protection from the sun and UV rays. Say hello to your new favorite summer product, because once you have it you won't need anything else!
This is a huge time-saver in the morning if you take forever to blow dry your hair. It cuts down your blow dry time up to 50%, smoothes and conditions while keeping frizz at bay. Plus, it protects your have from both heat and UV rays. Try it once and you'll be hooked!
We can't leave out products that start the protection right in the shower and I obviously have to mention one of my favorites - AG Colour Savour shampoo and conditioner. The great thing about this combo is you don't necessary need to have colored hair to use these products. It obviously protects your color, vibrancy, moisture, and is reparative but it is an amazing combo for someone with fine to normal hair. It's not too heavy, but it's also not too light so you can still feel the cleanliness and hydration of your hair! Right - it also provides you with both UV and environmental protection. Great way to prime your hair for what your day has in store!
