Summer, with its abundance of sunshine, beaches, pools and travel, can be hard on your hair. Follow these tips to ensure your hair is protected through-out the busy summer months.
CLEAN ON THE GO
When on the go, vacationing or camping, the opportunity to wash your hair may not present itself. Dry shampoos are designed to spray on dry hair, and reduce dirt, oil and grease as you let it dry and massage and brush it through.

The hot summer sun, longer daylight and dips in a chlorine pool can cause extra damage to hair during camping and vacation season. Packing a compact leave in conditioner with thermal or UV protection helps maintain moisture and protects against the harsher sun, while you’re out and about. To re-strengthen sun or chlorine bleached hair after a full day outside, look for a hair treatment product that can replenish the hair’s depleted keratin.
