The summer months can really take a toll on the hair, wreaking havoc on your tresses and making it even harder to keep hair shiny, healthy and frizz-free. “Sun, sea, chlorine and even the outdoors in general are factors that lead to hair that lacks shine because they strip the hair,” says London trichologist Philip Kingsley.
“Simply wearing a hat to minimize oxidation from the sun and using protective products help to create a barrier.” Kinglsey also recommends applying a leave-on conditioner any time you are going out in the sun for an extended period of time, and using an intensive conditioner on a regular basis. “There are many products out there that are very helpful at controlling the damaging effects of summer-and they have the added bonus of leaving the hair silky and shiny,” he says.
