Sun exposure, Chlorine, and salt water are the three worst things for your hair. This can really put a damper on a beach vacation or day at the pool!  Luckily, Aveda has an entire line dedicated to keeping your hair healthy and shiny, as well as keeping your hair color in tact. Now you can enjoy the beach, pool, and outdoors worry-free! Heres a quick guide to help protect the time and money you have invested in your hair color.

Sun Care Hair Veil:This product is a lightweight mist that has a naturally derived UV-A and UV-B filters to protect the hair . Spraying on dry or damp hair before going out in the sun will act as a sunscreen for your hair color. Make sure to re-apply after taking a dip in the pool in order to get the full 16 hours of protection.

Sun Care Hair and Body Cleanser: Yes, you read that right…. it is a hair AND body cleanser. No one likes the lingering smell of chlorine after a day at the pool, or the green tone it gives your hair. This cleanser is a color-safe formula that gently removes chlorine, salt, and other product buildup from your hair and body, while maintaining moisture balance. Using this cleanser year-round will be great for preventing hard-water buildup as well.

Sun Care After-Sun Hair Masque:The last step to keeping your hair healthy and damage-free during the summer is the after sun hair masque. The organic oils in this product will moisturize sun-damaged hair and help protect against free radicals. After using the sun care hair and body cleanser, apply to damp hair roots to ends and leave in for 2-5 minutes, then rinse.

Add these three steps to your fun-in-the-sun summer routine,  and your hair, skin, and stylist will thank you!
