Sun protection for your hair

By July 2, 2019Blog

Excited to be heading off on holiday? Don’t forget that the sun can be damaging to your hair and scalp, just like your skin, and they can burn if not properly protected. The sun can also cause your hair colour to fade and discolour.

Don’t worry, we’re here to help, as salon director Natalie rounds up her favourite products and tips to help protect your coloured hair from the sun’s harmful rays…

 

The Moroccanoil Color Complete Collection

Meet the new Color Complete Collection, Moroccanoil’s revolutionary 360°approach to colour care that starts in the salon and is maintained at home.

The specially designed collection, which includes a shampoo, conditioner and a “protect & prevent” spray, helps your hair colour last longer between appointments, preserving the sense of confidence you gain from salon-fresh colour. When used together, they address all of the daily environmental stressors that cause colour to fade.

 

Natalie’s favourite?

The last step in the collection: the Moroccanoil Protect & Prevent Spray.

It helps reduce brassiness and hair colour fading at the source by shielding it from daily environmental factors that weaken the hair, including UV rays, pollution and thermal damage.

This weightless leave-in conditioner also features ArganID™ micro-encapsulated technology to repair and seal the hair cuticle.

 

Summer-proof your hair with Paul Mitchell

As you know at Image International we’re huge fans of Paul Mitchell hair care – they’ve got you covered from poolside to beachside with Natalie’s three holiday hair faves…

 

Platinum Blonde Shampoo

Its violet-tinted formula is perfect for banishing the brassiness that can be caused by sun exposure.

 

Color Protect Locking Spray

Providing sun protection and helps keep colour from fading, while conditioning extracts add moisture and shine too!

 

Shampoo Three

Superb at removing chlorine, iron and minerals to help prevent swimmers’ “chlorine green”.

 

Did you know?

The chlorine in swimming pools cause hard metals, like copper and iron, to oxidise. Blondes, as well as grey hair tones, can develop a greenish hue because of this exposure to the oxidised hard metals floating – it’s the metals, not the chlorine, that actually cause the hair to change colour!
