It’s hard not to luxuriate in the sunshine all summer, especially if you live in a place that’s covered with snow half of the year. Unfortunately, UV rays can wreak havoc on all hair types no matter where you live.
Too much exposure to sunlight demolishes hair proteins and weakens follicles. Fine locks and light-colored strands are more susceptible than thick or dark hair because the sun attacks from the outside and works its way in. On the other hand, ever wonder why darker strands look sun-kissed come September? That’s pigment damage from your hair working overtime to retain as much protein as possible.
Ergo, no matter what your hair type, sun exposure leads to dry, brittle, dull locks. Not fun to see. Even less fun to style. That’s why you need to invest in products designed specifically to rebuild those proteins, nourish damaged strands and bring your luscious locks back to their original splendor. Here are the top products, starting with cleansers, for a solid routine that will have you loving your hair again in no time.
Seaweed extract is the secret ingredient here. It infuses locks with proteins, vitamins and minerals to strengthen and naturally hydrate.
If you see a lot of flyaways, chances are your hair is experiencing breakage. This shampoo targets weak points with keratin proteins.
L’Oréal promises two times more nourishment with this formula that features camellia and sunflower oils.
Oil-based products should gently soften hair, not weigh it down, and this does the trick.
It’s important not to skip this step, as a heat protectant prepares your hair and prevents future damage or frizz.
Enter keratin. Spraying dry or damp strands with this product instantly works to rebuild protein levels.
After washing, conditioning and (gently) towel drying, spritz on a detangler with leave-in conditioner.
Now for the double whammy: Set up a good defense with heat protection plus keratin.
Now that your hair is detangled, run a serum or oil through damp strands for further protection and added luster.
This oil will make your hair shine like it’s never even seen the sun.
This trio works together to cleanse, remove buildup (without stripping the good oils) and repair any damage moving forward.
For those heads full of wildly unruly or coarse hair, this serum is calling your name.
Now for the masks. Some masks can be left in overnight, but this one should only stay on hair for a few minutes.
Antioxidant-rich fig keeps curly, coily hair looking vibrant and lustrous with vitamin C.
