Summertime means more days are spent hanging out in the warm sun by the beach or pool. It’s common sense to protect your face and body with sunscreen, but it’s not so obvious that hair, especially hair that’s color-treated, needs protection too in order to promote longevity.
Without the right protection, dyed hair is prone to fading and dryness. It’s always important to take precautionary steps, even if you’re only going to be out in the sun for a short while.
Here our some of our top three tips and products that will definitely help your color-treated hair deal with sun exposure and the aftercare.
Use a Color Protection Mist
An easy and effortless way to protect dyed hair from the sun is applying a protection mist from roots to ends. Color protection mists contain a small amount of sunscreen that protects dyed hair from harmful UV rays. Not to mention, these sprays extend the life of your dye and are safe to use on the daily. Spray on all over hair evenly before going out into the sun.
