Maintaining your hair color during your summer beach vacation
Keep Hair Color Vibrant When On The Go
Have you just colored your hair to get the perfect summer look? Keeping your hair color vibrant when you’re on the go doesn’t need to be a chore. Whether you have bold red, daring black, chic brown, or flirty blonde hair, use these simple tips to avoid fading those amazing shades!
Sun And Sea: Your Hair’s Worst Enemy
1. UV Protection
Exposure to the sun can leave your hair frizzy, dry and even wash out its color. But you don’t have to avoid the sun to make sure that you maintain your hair color. Many shampoos, conditioners and styling aids contain UV filters. Limit the use of hair care products that contain high levels of alcohol, as these will only hasten damage caused by the sun.
2. Rinse Well
If you have a bright or bold hair color, the chlorine and sun can cause fading or even streaking. Make sure to rinse your hair well after swimming to remove leftover chlorine.
Like your skin, the sun and chlorinated water can leave your hair dry. To keep it moisturized, use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner specifically designed for dry hair. You may also consider using a natural hair oil or hair mask, which immediately moisturize and nourish dry hair. Brushing your hair can also help with hydration.
4. Pin It Up
When you’re preparing for your trip, make sure you pack plenty of bobby pins. Keeping your locks pinned back is the best way to both protect your hair and keep it neat.
