What does that even mean?

Protect your hair from summer?? Does that even make sense?  Well I guess what I really mean is that it is important to protect your hair from all the elements that come along with Summer Time!!  What does that include?


Chlorine!!!!  It’s awful for your hair! If you are planning to go swimming it’s best to pre-wet your hair and put in a leave in conditioner before dunking into the chlorinated water.  Also, as soon as you get out, make sure to rinse your hair right away…hose water is fine if you aren’t planning on jumping in the shower right away.  If you swim a lot during the summer and start to notice a build up of pool water, invest in some clarifying shampoo and use it once or twice every two weeks (less if you have color treated hair).

Chlorine is not the only damaging element on your hair in the summer.  Let’s not forget about the sun!  The easiest way to protect from too many rays hitting your fragile hair is to wear a hat.  But if you are like me, you hate hates and just can’t seem to find any that look right on you.  So then what?  Sun screen!!!  Yes, they sell sun screen specifically for your hair…so go get some and take of your hair this summer!! Try Redken’s Color Extend Sun.  Not only will it protect from the sun but it will help keep your color in too!
