The Pureology PureArtist knows that UV rays, pool chemicals and extreme humidity that summer is known for can cause breakage, dulling and out-of-this-world frizz. Below are a few of her suggestions for keeping hair healthy in the summer.

DO DON’T
 

1. Use a hair masque (try Pureology Strength Cure Restorative Masque) at least twice a week to give your hair an extra dose of nutrients.

 

1. Skip using a leave-in conditioner and thermal shield (like Pureology Colour Fanatic) before blow-drying. It’ll keep your color from oxidizing and Colour Fanatic in particular has 20 beautifying benefits.

 

2. Toss a leave-in conditioner in your beach or pool bag to spray before you swim or bask in the sun.

 

2. Blowdry your hair every day. Summer is a great time to embrace air-drying for wavier locks (they’re very on-trend, you know)!

 

3. Mix an ounce of your daily conditioner (Sunshine recommends Pureology 
Strength Cure Condition) with a bottle of water. Shake until milky and spray onto hair, then tie into a knot to protect from chlorine.

 

3. Skimp on deep-conditioning. Condition every time you wash and use a masque for a minimum of 5 minutes on a weekly basis.
