The Best Hair Masks for Repairing Sun Damage
Michela Marra | Thursday June 7th 2018
Last week, I got my haircut. I hadn’t planned on it at all, but made the last-minute decision because I was tired of looking at my burned out, dry ends. Partly to blame is my aggressive color – I am a bright hair color fanatic – and the other culprit is the strong sun, which, even just a few weeks into warm weather, has left my hair in bad shape. So, I decided on a radical change.
All I really need for my hair during the summer months is protection; protection from the wind, chlorine from the pool and salt from the ocean, right? Hard to say. But this early on in the season we still have time to prevent a catastrophe. Just like your skin, your hair needs a beauty routine. It is not necessary to pack your vanity table full of all types of product, but the right shampoo and conditioner to see you through the first signs of change during the summer.
And because of the thermal aggression (your hair dryer is Enemy #1) there is one product you need to add your must-haves: a hair mask. Nourishing, hydrating, restoring and protecting: this is what you should be asking of your hair mask during summertime. If you can’t live without coloring your hair during the hottest time of the year, then a mask is a definite must to prevent your hair from completely losing its vitality, causing those frizzies to come every time the humidity rises.
Take a look at our favorite hair masks for fighting heat, humidity, and the general damage of days in the sun, approved by us here at ATPB.
