Your skin isn’t the only thing that needs some TLC during the summer months! Long hours in the sun – not to mention all those dips in the ocean and pool – can result in dehydrated hair and faded color. To protect your hair color while soaking up the joys of el verano, follow these 5 easy tips!
1. Wear a hat
Before heading out the door, grab a wide-brimmed, floppy sun hat. It will add a chic touch to your summer ensemble while shielding your sensitive strands.
2. Invest in products for color-treated hair
When it’s time to wash, do so with a shampoo and conditioner that will safeguard your color and protect strands against dehydration. Try Pantene Intense Color Care Shampoo and Conditioner – both made of a concentrated formula that repairs surface damage from the coloring process and helps prevent color fade.
3. Don’t over-shampoo!
To minimize water-related fading, try shampooing only 2-3 times weekly. On your off days, apply a dry shampoo, like Herbal Essences White Grapefruit & Mosa Mint Dry Shampoo, to absorb any excess oil and keep hair soft and bouncy.
4. Rinse strands before swimming
Did you know chlorine strips hair of its natural protective oils? So if you’re not the swim cap-wearing type, quickly hop in the shower and douse your hair with fresh water, helping to slow the chlorine-absorption process.
5. Don’t forget after-sun repair
Do you apply aloe gel to your skin after a long day at the beach? Then why wouldn’t you extend a similar courtesy to your mane? Give stressed-out strands an after-sun treat with Pantene Color Care CC Shine Spray.
