Summer is finally here and we won’t get tired of walking under the sun, spending days at the beach or swimming anytime soon. There are lots of products to protect your skin from UV rays, but what should you be using this summer to keep your hair healthy?

Your hair and your scalp need different types of care during the hot season. Salt, sand, and chlorine can make your hair more brittle or dry. Sun can also be the worst enemy of healthy and silky hair. Your hair can become drier and the color can fade away after exposure to the sun, so it is essential to choose the right care for your hair type.

Taking care of colored hair

Colored hair tends to need more care than natural hair, because the fiber has been weakened by coloration. In fact, the cuticles have been opened to allow the color to penetrate the fiber, so it’s important to treat and protect colored hair properly.

Preserving color intensity with Fanola’s After Color

This Fanola line is great for all colored hair. These products will help you preserve your color during summer.

The After Color shampoo is enriched with vitamin E and linseed oil, which will help you preserve the glow of your color. The After Color mask is enriched with linseed oil and beta carotene. It will protect your hair from fading, leaving it soft and easy to comb. This mask will also help to keep your hair cuticles closed to preserve the shine.

Advice: Try to space out your shampoos every two or three days to avoid drying out your hair.

Fanola No Yellow: An essential line for blond hair

Fanola’s No Yellow shampoo and mask are perfect if you want to avoid yellow tones that may appear after exposing your hair to the sun or swimming in the pool. The secret behind these products resides in their pigmentation. Indeed, the strong purple pigments neutralize the yellowish nuances that can appear in blond hair.

Advice: Use this product once a week. If your hair is dry, you might prefer the purple mask, which is more moisturizing.

Preparing and protecting your hair

Keratin is one of the most important components of your hair. This protein constitutes around 95% of your hair and is responsible for its strength, elasticity, and overall health. The degradation of this protein can happen after prolonged exposure to sun or harmful elements (like chlorine or salt), which results in damaged hair.

Your hair can become brittle after a long day under the sun. Choosing a nourishing mask, shampoo, and conditioner will help you keep silky and healthy hair.

Botugen: An effective treatment for damaged hair

The Botugen hair care line is perfect to restore damaged hair. It contains keratin as well as a botanical peptide call botolife. These hair products will help you fill a lack of keratin. Furthermore, they contain hyaluronic acid to preserve and hydrate your hair.

If your hair becomes dry and brittle this summer, use a Botugen treatment, following these four steps to repair your hair.

  1. Clean and open up the cuticles of your hair with the Botugen Reconstructive Shampoo; this will allow it to penetrate the fibre fully.
  2. Apply the Botugen intensive Reconstructive Filler and let it sit 5 to 10 minutes to obtain good results.
  3. Apply the Botugen Reconstructive Mask and let it sit for 5 minutes.
  4. Finish with the Botugen Reconstructive Filler Spray on the length of the hair.

Keep your hair deeply moisturized with the Nutri Care line

Some tips to help you keep your hair beautiful all summer long:

  1. Rinse your hair after each swim in the pool or at the beach to eliminate harmful elements (like salt and chlorine).
  2. Refresh your haircut by trimming your split ends.
  3. Try to reduce the use of hair dryers or straighteners to avoid the damage caused by heat.
  4. Use suitable products to protect and repair your hair.
