Layering Up The Locks
If you plan to hit the beach or you are laying out at the pool or you simply want to go out to show some athletic skills, add some extra protection layer. Apply a light layer of leave-in spray or leave in conditioner cream that added protection from environmental hazards. Apply these products on slightly wet hair as well.
Use Hats and Scarves
One of the best ways to prevent color from fading is covering up the hair. Take a big, floppy-brimmed beach hat and reduce your hair to be exposed to the sun. Use a hat that suits your beach style or a simple fabric bandana to protect your hair from harsh rays. Combine hats and scarves with ultraviolet protectant sprays for the highest level of protection. You can add flair to your beach style in number of ways from protectant spays to cool hats and scarves, whatever suits you best.
Re-hydrate to Revitalize
After-sun masks are amazing, apply at least once a week or after full day outdoors in order to maintain moisture and soothe out cuticles. When exposed to sunlight, UV rays dry out strands and roughen up the cuticles which in result dulls your hair color. Naturals ingredients in these products can help correct sun damage. Simply apply a product to freshly shampooed hair and work it through using a wide-toothed comb.
