3 Ways to Protect Your Hair This Summer

Ever heard the expression, “Fun in the sun?” We have! It’s no secret that a fun summer needs the warm sunshine! But you also need products that protect and continue to keep your hair in great condition from the damaging rays of the sun (and sand, salt, and chlorine!). I have 3 amazing products from Aveda that can summer proof your hair!
Aveda is mindful about the products they make and sell. They’re the first beauty company manufacturing with 100% certified wind power. Responsible packaging and renewable energy sets an example for everyone in the beauty industry including the people who buy their products. Who doesn’t love an environmentally safe and effective product? Who wouldn’t want to strive for the care and responsibility of the world we live in? So, why not take responsibility of your hair in the same way? Sure, products can be expensive, but I promise you it’s well worth it. There are three steps to keep the healthy and shiny hair you deserve: Cleanse, restore, and protect!
Cleanse: No one loves the feeling of salty, ocean hair after taking a refreshing dip in the water on a hot day at the beach. I’m not sure about any of you but the only thing I love more than spending my whole day at the beach enjoying summer, is getting home and taking a nice shower with clean water. Sun Care Hair And Body Cleanser by Aveda is the perfect first step into a color safe shampoo. It removes all that salt, chlorine, and product build up while locking in the moisture and regenerating your hair. Just as certain oils give the hair a natural, shiny look for longer, Aveda brings that to your locks from their naturally derived products.
Restore: A tough work day or a crazy parent teacher conference can stress you out, right?  Well, this may sound ridiculous, but your hair gets stressed too. That means losing all its moisture and shine throughout the long work day or while you’re sunning on the beach on your day off. Bring some of that life back to your hair with the Sun Care After Sun Hair Masque by Aveda. It has all the necessary and nature friendly, coconut oils, shea butter, and tamanu oils to moisturize your hair. Green tea extract, sunflower seed, and Vitamin E are all super important things you need for your hair and your skin.
Protect: If you haven’t had a hair treatment in a few months, couple years, or ever, you are doing things wrong! It is an amazing feeling and one you can always get at your salon, but did you know that in between your appointments, you can also get it in the comfort of your own home? This third step protecting treatment is a must when you get out of the shower. If you are prepping your hair for an outing with the girls or for the summer days to come, make sure you are using this leave-in Sun Care Protective Hair Veil by Aveda. It is water resistant, minimizes color fadage, damage, and dryness. Its UVA and UVB filters protect from sun damage while you are just out running errands or laying in the direct sun light. Getting a tan has never been so effortless and neither has protecting your hair. Lets just call it, a sun tan lotion for your hair!
We sell these Aveda products in our salon! So next time you come in for a cut or color, make sure you ask your stylist about these products and let them show you how to manage your hair this summer. See you guys in the rays!
