Protect your hair this Summer

By on , in Hair, Hair Health, Summer Hair Care, TO112

With Winter finally behind us, and the days are heating up, we look forward to beach lounging, sun-kissed skin, and destination vacations. Summertime in the city is no walk in the park (which is another warm weather fav), it’s blisteringly hot with almost no protection from the UV rays beating down on the top of your head, which can leave your hair feeling a little more brittle than you would like.

Not to be dramatic but, it’s been reported that this year we will have the hottest Summer in human history. Ever. That being said, you probably already have your go-to sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun, but have you considered your need for hair protection as well? 

It goes without saying, heat protecting creams need to be used every time you use a hot tool, but can also be used as a leave in conditioner to protect your strands from harmful UVA and UVB rays when you’re out in the sun. This will also help prevent freshly coloured hair from fading faster.

If you chemically or thermally treat your hair, excessive sun exposure can further damage your ends, it’s important to use a protector to not only hydrate but to shield your hair cuticles from damaging rays.

TO112 Hair Cream doubles as a styling cream as well as a UV ray protector, along with a myriad of other hair care necessities. So of course, this would be our first choice when protecting our prized mane, the foundation of this cream being packed with antioxidant based oils, like tamanu oil, is the perfect ingredient when looking for protection. We are so thankful for this miracle cream that fits perfectly in your bag to take with you, wherever you go.

How To Use TO112 Hair Cream:

Start with a dime-sized amount and add more as needed. Rub evenly throughout hands and coat towel-dried hair from mid-length to ends. Blow dry in, or let air dry. Use as a finishing cream to tame frizz or fly-aways post-styling.

Here are some tips to go along with using your heat protecting cream:

  • Wear a hat or scarf. If your hair is more fragile we recommend a satin scarf to wrap your hair, this way the fabric won’t pull.
  • If you wear a swimming cap, use a hair mask to prevent chlorine from affecting your hair colour. Remember to always rinse your hair after swimming to remove salt water or chlorine.
  • Use a good moisturizing conditioner for your hair type every time you wash your hair, and brush with a detangling brush.
