It’s been blazing hot across the country! Have you been beating the heat at the beach or pool? We all know we should protect our skin from the sun but we often overlook our hair and scalp. It’s really important to protect your hair from the sun, as well as from harsh elements such as wind, salt water, and chlorine. Nothing will dry out hair or fade haircolor faster than being outside on a sunny day. The scalp is also really vulnerable because it’s usually getting direct light. One person dies every year in the U.S. from melanoma, so be sure to protect yourself and ask your hairstylist to tell you if he or she sees any moles you should keep an eye on. Click through for 10 great summer haircare products with UV protection.
