Summer Strand Savers

Dry hair? Check.  Faded color? Check.  Split ends? Check.  

Summer takes a toll on hair unlike any other season. Keeping it up seems nearly impossible, but thanks to the geniuses behind these beauty companies, we now have hope. Here are some tips that will help prevent and restore dreaded hair damage.

Start in the shower.  Use a shampoo and conditioner that aids in protecting your color or that specifically targets hydrating damaged hair.  Herbal Essences Hydralicious Self Targeting Hydrator cleanses while giving damaged hair a boost of added hydration.  I love the way it smells too.

Always use protection.  Slather the SPF onto your skin and hair but don't forget about your hair!  While I was in Aruba, I religiously used Joico's K-Pak Sun Therapy Protective Milk on my strands everyday before hitting the beach.  

Treat and retreat.  Once a week use a specialty masque that aids in rebuilding your hair's protein structure. Redken Color Extend Sun After Sun Masque replenishes my hair weekly and also provides a UV filter for protection.
