With the summer heat upon us, we should all start creating a healthy sun care routine. This pertains not only to our skin but also to our hair. Our hair, much like our skin, easily becomes damaged from exposure to UV rays. The sun’s powerful rays create dullness, frizz, and dryness. The good news is, there are countless products created to help shield your hair from the sun. One of my favorites is the Kerastase Soleil Masque UV Defense Active. This hair treatment is made for those with color-treated hair, however, it can be used by and benefit all hair types.
Formulated with moisture-rich ingredients such as essential oils and antioxidants, this sun-protecting mask helps shield your hair from sun damage, provide extra moisture and preventing dullness. It leaves your hair extra soft and acts like a deep conditioning treatment activated by the sun’s heat. This hair mask repairs, enhances, and strengthens your hair with each use.
The results of these sun-protecting masks are great. They truly make a difference in your hair. For someone like myself, who has dry hair that tends to get frizzy, sun protection is a must. I always feel my hair is left softer, shinier and much healthier after a treatment.
Using the mask is very easy. Start by making your hair damp, not wet! A simple rule to follow whenever you are applying a hair treatment mask, is to apply on damp hair. When your hair is soaking wet, the water within the hair shaft repels the treatment. When hair is damp, it allows the treatment to become absorbed into the hair shaft. I like to spray my hair with water to dampen it just enough. Then I apply the mask from roots to ends. Comb through using a wide-toothed comb or a wet brush, to help spread the treatment evenly throughout hair. Braid hair, or place in a bun, and you are ready to go spend a day in the sun.
Once you are done for the day, simply wash the mask out, then proceed to shampoo and condition your hair as usual. You will surely see the enhanced results and love how your hair feels.
