It’s summer which means your hair needs a little extra TLC. Not to worry we’ve got summer hair tips that’ll help save your strands from chlorine, UV rays and heat waves. Read on for healthy hair tips that will help preserve your hair’s color, hydration, and texture.
SUMMER HAIR TIPS: AVOID CHLORINE GREEN HAIR
Everyone wants to avoid the dreaded green chlorine hair. But few manage it. If your hair turned green, chlorine isn’t the only one to blame, copper is just as equally a culprit. To learn more about why your hair turns green, check out this blog. To stop the effect of green chlorine hair, look no further than Dream Filter. It removes ALL minerals and metals (even chlorine!) in just three minutes. To use: spray onto hair in sections and let sit for one to three minutes, then shampoo off.
Summer heat makes your scalp sweaty and ramps up oil production. This can cause irritation, clog follicles, even cause hair loss! The key to healthy summer hair is to keep your scalp clean and residue free. Do not load up and smother your scalp with dry shampoo (Read more about the dangers of dry shampoo here). Instead use a gentle sulfate-free formula like Color Wow Color Security Shampoo, so you can shampoo as often as you need to without fear of color fade. Even more importantly, Color Wow Color Security Shampoo is uniquely formulated without any “stay behind” ingredients found in most shampoos (like silicones, oils, conditioning agents, thickening agents) so your hair and scalp are truly clean, fresh and free to thrive.
UVA and UVB rays break down hair fibers, leaving your hair porous and prone to dehydration, breakage, and color molecules leaching. The sun’s radiation also changes color values, taking away “cool” tones and firing up reds and yellows, which turns your hair brash and brassy. The best healthy hair tip to lock in color? Using a product with UV protection built in, like Color Wow Pop & Lock. Formulated with UV filters, it locks down cuticles with a high-gloss top coat, trapping and holding color. The result? Color that pops and has a mirror-like reflection.SUMMER HAIR TIPS: TUCK YOUR TRESSES UNDER A HATWhether its blindingly sunny or totally overcast days, UV rays still blast your hair.
