Protect your Hair from the Sun!

By Kyla Davies

Before you take off on that beach getaway, remember your hair needs protection from the sun, similar to your skin. It’s important to protect your hair to maintain your colour and the overall healthiness of your locks. Here are a few of my solutions to help keep your hair health all year long:

Cap it

The best way to protect your hair from the sun is literally having something to wear to stop the UV rays from coming in contact with your hair. Such as hats, head scarves and bandannas.

Reduce heat styling

Ditch your hot tools all summer and enjoy your natural hair! Let your hair air dry, put some braids in it over night.

Use an SPF conditioner

Also, find an SPF deep conditioner or mask to protect from any other damage. You can also find UV protection sprays, works just how sunscreen works on your skin.

Dust those Ends

To keep you hair looking great all year long, be sure to get your hair “dusted” every 4-6 weeks. Dusting or micro-trimming, just removes the tiniest tips of your strands to remove the dry damaged ends. Dusting can also help if you are trying to grow your hair out.

Root Melt It and Forget It

Tired of colouring your roots every 4-6 weeks? No problem! We have the perfect solution for you — root melt!

What is it exactly?

A root melt is a technique used to blend darker roots into the rest of the hair, blurring out any lines of demarcation. What we typically do is pick a shade close to your natural hair colour, smudging it into the lightened/coloured hair. While your roots grow out, it will create a seamless natural blend between the dark to light hair. This can extend your colour (and time in salon) by up to 3-4 months! Wha?? Yup, you heard that right. This look is great on blondes, balayage, highlighted, and even grey hair.

So stop dreading over those harsh roots and instead enjoy the grow out period!
