We have a love/hate relationship with the summer sun. Love it for the bronzy glow it leaves after a long beach weekend, sundress and bikini season, and the subtle natural highlights it tints your locks. Hate it for the lobster red burn that often precedes the bronzy glow, sweating through sundresses, and the damage that comes along with the highlights. While sweat and the occasional sunburn are inevitable, we’re sharing some tips on how to protect your hair from the harsh summer sun:
- Harsh UV rays can cause hair to look lackluster. Prevent dullness and damage with our Be Gentle, Be Kind Superfoods Shampoo and Conditioner. They both contain Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, which is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the skin and hair from the damaging effects of free radicals such as smoke, UV rays, and pollution. It is also believed that green tea helps to thicken thinning hair and encourage hair growth, in addition to promoting overall hair health!
- Excess exposure to sunshine can cause dry and brittle hair, making it easier to develop split ends. To repair damage and avoid new breakage, add our Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask to your hair once a week. This intensive weekly treatment utilizes nutrients from B-vitamins, rosehip and argan oils, algae, and biotin to restore essential hydration and make your hair stronger to protect against future damages.
- The sun can also strip the hair of color, causing it to fade. Protect your color with our Be Gentle, Be Kind Avocado + Quinoa Co-wash. This product is safe for color treated hair and its 4-in-1 formula cleanses, conditions, detangles, and nourishes your lovely colored locks.
