There are a ton of issues that summer brings when it comes to hair. I wanna share a few tips to help you keep healthy, happy hair all summer long.
Sun: If your hair color is natural, you may enjoy the natural highlights the sun can give you in the summer time. This is actually sun damage from UV rays. If your hair is colored and you are exposing it to those UV rays, you are basically just flushing that color appointment money right down the drain. Protect your hair from the sun with Joico Kpak Luster Lock Spray.
Salt: If you are a beach bum in the summer, that salty water can create tons of cute texture in your hair, which is wonderful! Free cute beach waves? Count me in! If this is you, make sure you are putting some moisture back into your hair. Salt dries out your natural moisture. As soon as you leave the beach, shampoo and condition your hair with a moisturizing formula for your hair. If you spend more than a day or two at the beach or you spend most of your summer there, it is especially important to schedule in salon treatments to repair bonds, condition and restore moisture to your overexposed tresses.
Chlorine: The chemicals that protect us from the bacteria and fungus that grows in water also do a number on our hair. Besides the green nightmare that lighter shades of hair can turn into, the chemicals also dry hair out. Moisture is important in this case too. In salon treatments and shampoo and conditioner specially formulated for your hair type are very important if you spend time in the pool over the summer.
Weddings: It's wedding season! That means lots more all day and night events. Keep your style up to 72 hours with Joico's Powerwhip and Powerspray. The extra hold lets you set it and forget it so you can focus on making memories and enjoying the moment.
