Q&A: Haircare in the Summer Sun

How can I best protect my hair in the summer sun?


While the wonderful rays of Father Sun may warm your bones, it will also do a deep fry on unprotected hair. Even worse, search and destroy pool chemicals and ocean salt can vaporize all those wonderful natural oils you've spent all year balancing and building in your soft, undamaged mane. Sun and surf damage can manifest as faded hair color, fragile, brittle or dry hair and yucky split ends. Be proactive and protect your hair from UVA & UVB rays that can leave you with a head full of straw that can take months to reverse. Unless you plan on a major buzz cut at summer's end, resist the urge to "do naked hair" or dive into pools with your locks flowing freely and follow the following Safe Summer Hair Rules:

1. Start the summer season with a salon trip to remove split ends and handle hair repairs.

2. If your hair normally dries out in the summer, consider having a preventive deep conditioning treatment to ward off summer frizzies.

Follow these tips so you don't have to run from the sun, just have fun!
