The weather’s heating up, July Fourth is right around the corner, and with any luck you’re getting a chance to relax in the sun—safely. We’ve all been told so many times to wear sunscreen that by now it’s hopefully second nature. But do you overlook your hair? UV rays can wreck your color, and extreme heat, saltwater and chlorine can be seriously damaging, especially when your hair is constantly getting wet, dry and wet again at the pool or beach.
We’ve been using Biolage Hydrathérapie Conditioning Balm ($23, Regis Salons) to keep our hair soft and healthy, and it’s definitely worth trying it out. Use this balm once or twice a week in place of your regular conditioner. Leave it in for a minute or two, rinse, and you’ll feel the difference right away. Then, protect your hair in the future with Biolage Colorcarethérapie Color Care Shine Shake ($14, Regis Salons), a spray with UV filters. Just lightly spray it on damp hair and then style as usual.
