Summer Sun Protection

Summer can mean time spent outdoors in the sun and heat. While a day at the beach is a fun outing, it can play havoc on your hair. We all know how important sunscreen is for your skin, but did you know it is also important to keep your hair color from fading? Exposure to the sun and elements of summer can not only fade your hair color but can also make your hair dry and brittle. Your stylist can recommend professional products to help keep your color fresh and your hair looking and feeling its best during the hot days of summer.

How Does the Sun Fade My Color?

The sun’s rays contain ultraviolet A and B rays. These rays react with your hair much like your skin when it tans and can cause your color to fade. Oxidation occurs within your hair shaft and eventually leads to brassiness and unwanted gold tints in color treated hair. Products that contain sunscreen will protect your hair from this effect and protect your color.
