The Ultimate Guide To Sun-Proofing Your Hair This Summer
These SPF sprays and stylers will shield your scalp and strands from the damaging summer sun
Undo the damage: If your hair is already fried, it's time to make leave-in conditioner your new best friend. Leave-in conditioners seep deep into your hair's cuticle, (rather than sit on top of it) to keep harmful rays out. Look for a product like Ouidad Sun Shield Sun & Sport Leave-In Conditioner, $63, which contains panthenol, an ingredient that makes fragile curls more elastic and less prone to breakage.
Prevent it for good: To prevent thirsty curls, pick up a sulfate-free shampoo like Nelson J Argan Oil 7 Non-Foaming Shampoo, $22, to avoid further stripping brittle hair of your scalp's natural oils. Before heading out into the sun, spritz a leave-in product like Aveda Sun Care Spray Protective Veil, $28, which contains UVA/UVB filters, free radical blocking antioxidants like green tea and organic coconut and palm oils to detangle and define natural curls.
