You spend a lot to keep your hair colour looking pristine. From those winter hair masks to colour touch-ups every few weeks, you invest a lot of time and money into your strands, so why would you let it all go to waste in the summer months with damaging UV rays? We all know how important sunscreen as the temps rise (though it should be a staple all year round), but you should be protecting your strands, too. We’ve rounded up six products to help keep your hair protected all summer long (and a few of them will even give you those coveted beachy waves, too).
It may sound like a bit of a mouthful, but the Alterna Haircare Bamboo Beach BB Beach Balm for Hair ($30) is going to be your summer hair must-have. From nixing frizz to adding light hold to those tousled waves and creating a UV barrier to help protect your hair, this five-in-one miracle balm is a real winner for those sun-worshippers.
