We're always told to protect our skin during the warm summer months, but what about that other age-telling element— our hair?
To keep our tresses in top form this season, I've asked celebrity colorist Rita Hazan for her expert advice:
Create a Shield
To keep hair shiny and your color vibrant, use products containing SPF. My favorite product is Phyto Plage Protective Sun Veil, it’s a great SPF for the hair and helps preserve your color, without being greasy.
Think Outside the Box
I always keep a mask with me in my beach bag. Every time I go in/out of the ocean or pool I always put the mask in my hair— it offers two-fold protection: 1) The sun acts as heat, which allows the mask to really penetrate the hair, giving me a treatment all day 2) It keeps my hair from getting frizzy on the beach. Any mask will do the trick!
Be sure to use a conditioning treatment to keep hair healthy, at least once a week, and use a shampoo and conditioner for color treated or damaged hair to pump up the moisture and protect your color from fading.
