7 Summer Sun Hair Care Products

We all protect our skin from the sun when we go to the beach or spend a whole day out. It's almost an automated action, but what about protection for our hair? The sun and the beach/water environment can damage your hair in many ways, manifesting as faded hair color, brittle and dry hair with split ends.

I've round up some easy to use sun protect sprays and lotions. Sprays and lotions rest on the hair and protect it from the sun, but as with regular body UV protection products, these also require touch ups during sun exposure. Deep conditioner that penetrate the hair will give a longer lasting protection. Each brand has a sun care line, take a look at the complementary products for more options.

1. Redken Color Extend Sun Waterwear is a water-resistant treatment for sun-exposed hair. It contains the Hydra Shield complex that helps protect against environmental damage and humidity, UVA/UVB filters to prevent sun damage, Mango oil that replenishes moisture and vibrancy, the Ceramide repairs and resurfaces and an exclusice Interbond Conditioning System. It creates a frizz-free and natural finish in and out the water. So this one would be perfect to have when going swimming and reapplying as needed.
