4 Essential Haircare Products to Help Your Hair Survive the Summer Sun


Matthew Rose



Summer’s here, but as much as we love this season, there are few times of the year more difficult or damaging for your hair.

Time spent sunbathing on the veranda, frolicking in the waves, or lounging on the beach may seem like activities that will contribute to your general health – but in fact, these summer essentials can lead to terrible consequences for your hair.

Exposing your hair to the sun’s rays, salt water, a chlorinated pool, and the heat, can leave your hair dry, damaged, and dejected. This is because your hair is usually coated in a hydrolipidic film that helps to prevent damage and lock-in moisture to the very core of each strand, but typical summer activities like swimming and lounging around in the heat and humidity can destroy this film completely and leave your hair feeling fried.

To prevent this from happening, protect your hair with a daily dose of essential hair care products designed to help your locks withstand everything that life throws at it.
