Summer is here and that means long sunny days at the beach, BUT with all the fun that summer brings there is also the potential for severely damaged hair.
Chlorine, sun exposure, dryness and salt can leave your hair damaged and lifeless. It is so important to protect your hair from the harsh summer elements, as sun-damaged hair can result in colour fading, thinning, frizziness or split ends (please no!).
Not to worry, our Aveda summer solutions will protect your hair from these summer nasties. Keep reading for our top tips to ensure healthy, damage-free locks all summer long.
1. PREP & PROTECT
Preparing your hair for the harsh summer elements is KEY! The first step is using a Shampoo and Conditioner that has protectant properties. Aveda's Color Conserve Shampoo and Conditioner is the best way to prevent color fading and ensure that hair remains vibrant. Its natural ingredients seal the cuticles of the hair, leaving it silky soft and prepared for the elements.

Just like our body needs water after a workout, so does our hair! It is just as susceptible to dehydration if it's not getting the proper nourishment it needs.
Incorporating an intense hydrating masque into your hair regime will provide the nutrition and moisture your hair needs after exposure to the elements. The After-Sun Masque by Aveda is our go to product for restoring and re-hydrating sun-exposed hair, leaving it silky smooth to touch.

3. REPAIR & RESTORE
Sometimes, a hydrating masque just won't cut it on severely dry locks and a little help is needed. Cue Damage Remedy – an intense system that works to strengthen and repair severely weakened hair from the inside out.

Arming your hair with the strength to combat summer aggressors is a must! Although Color Conserve Shampoo and Conditioner will work to protect hair, the Strengthening treatment from this range is the ultimate solution to ensuring long-lasting colour. The Color Conserve Strengthening Treatment prevents breakage by strengthening hair using Aveda's revolutionary Morikue protein complex. The best part about this product is its naturally-derived sunscreens that work to repel UV rays, protecting hair from sun-damage.
