TREAT YOUR HAIR A BIT LIKE YOUR FACE
While no-one is suggesting we dedicate the same level of sun protection to our hair as our skin, a few summer switch-ups can protect strands (particularly coloured tresses) from fading, chlorine colour changes, dryness, breakage and frizz. FOR NOURISHING: Klorane Sun Radiance Protective Oil with Ylang-Ylang Wax, $20. If dryness and colour fade are your hair’s Achilles heel, then this lightweight oil will be your summer go-to. Not only a UV guard, it also wards off all manner of summer offenders like salt, sand and chlorine, too. FOR PROTECTING: La Biosthetique Soleil Vitalité Express UV Protection, $36. Loaded with sunflower extract, this nifty protector brightens strands while protecting from UV-A and B rays and nixing free radical damage. Spritz it before heading out and throw it into your beach bag to spray between dips. FOR HYDRATING: Blondi Beach Hair Rescue Oil, $ 49. Vitamin-rich ingredients like prickly pear, moringa and rosemary oil form this potent formulation rescuing damaged mid-summer tresses. For a deep treatment, pop it on for a few hours (or overnight), or drench dry ends before swimming to protect from the elements.
