One of the many popular topics regarding summer care is protection from the sun. We always hear about protecting our skin from the sun's rays, but what about our hair? Our delicate tresses need to be shielded from the sun to remain in tip-top shape. Check out these SPF-filled products that are always on the job:
1. Paul Mitchell Sun Protection Kit: This limited edition kit is designed to protect the hair from the sun's harshness with its UV absorbers while hydrating strands and keeping color intact. That means it's a must for curlies, especially color-lovers. Use the whole system (Sun Recovery Hydrating Shampoo, After-Sun Replenishing Masque, and Sun Shield Conditioning Spray) for best results.
2. Aveda Sun Care Protective Hair Veil: Headed to the beach? Make sure that you toss Aveda's Sun Care Protective Veil in your bag. This naturally-infused mist of shea butter, oils, and green tea extract protects hair from UV rays for up to 16 hours. To use, spray a small amount onto dry or damp hair before and during sun exposure. Reapply after swimming.
3. Redken Color Extend Sunscreen SPF 12 Unisex: Those seeking sun protection for the scalp should look no further than Redken's Color Extend Sunscreen SPF 12 Unisex. Mist your roots with this lightweight spray to prevent sunburn and add a few spritzes to your hair to de-stress sun-damaged tresses. There's no downside to nourished hair, so give it a whirl.
4. Ojon Color Sustain Pro Fade-Fighter Weekly Conditioning Treatment: Leave-in sprays are great, but let's just lay it on the line: NOTHING beats a moisturizing masque. Pump up your strands with Ojon's color sustain treatment. Filled with SPF, this masque will intensify your hair's moisture levels while locking out harmful UV rays.
