Now that we are easing into summer, we want to go lighter and brighter with our hair color. Whether you go with ombré or good ol’ fashion highlights, one thing is certain: you will need a summer arsenal of products to keep your color safe, your strands hydrated and your look beachy.
1. Deep conditioning treatment: Use every other time you shampoo. Lightening your color can weaken the backbone of the hair so you need a conditioner that combines protein and moisture. This will keep your hair feeling silky and shiny all summer long. The one that we love to recommend is Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Keratin Cream Rinse.
2. Dry shampoo: Our hair tends to get slightly more oil in the summer but remember, the more you wash the oilier you get. To get some extra volume and an extra day out of a wash, we treasure our dry shampoo. Here's a great go-to to try: Joico Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo.
3. Sunscreen for hair: UV rays damage not only our skin but our hair, too. UV Filters hide in different hair products, usually leave-in conditioners, shine sprays, or hold sprays. If you plan on spending your summer outdoors, these products will protect your color and the over all condition of your hair. Loxa Beauty has your back because they carry an amazing one by Sebastian. It is a shine spray that you can treat as a leave-in conditioner. Spray it into damp hair and let it air dry.
4. Heat protectant: Summer weather combined with the chemicals we use makes our hair more susceptible to damage. When you add a heat iron on top of that, you are putting yourself at risk for dry and crunchy ends. There is a solution in the form of a spray that protects your hair from that heat. This one by AG Hair is infused with argon oil, so whether you are straightening it out or curling it up, there is a barrier between your hair and the heat.
