How To Protect Your Hair From Sun Damage

By on , in How-To, Summer Hair Care, TO112

The heat wave has hit us – and hard. If this past weekend was a taster of what we can expect of the 2018 Canadian Summer, get ready to sweat!

You may be walking into work on this Monday morning with a sunkissed glow or maybe you’re flaunting a more crimson tone – either way stock up on some sunscreen, it’s about to get hotter!

Taking steps to protect your skin in the summer months is a no-brainer. But what your hair? Prolonged sun exposure can cause UV damage to hair cuticles. Along with water, salt and hot temperatures, the sun’s rays can leave your hair looking and feeling dry, brittle, broken, and discoloured – especially if you have colour-treated locks. Once the hair is damaged it’s tricky to resuscitate, you’ll notice that it’s less manageable – making it more difficult to hold styles.

The good news is that there are precautions you can take to protect your hair from the summer sun.

Run TO112’s tamanu oil infused heat and UV protectant through damp hair to treat dryness and colour fading. You can also use this bad boy post styling to tame frizz and flyaways.

Be smart, protect your hair from UV damage this summer.
