Just like the skin, hair requires special attention, especially with summer and the undesirable effects of the sun, salt water, chlorine, or even wind. With dehydration and weakness, they end up brittle and damaged. To remedy this, many cosmetic and hair care brands offer products that can be applied before, during, and after sun exposure. Of course, each hair requires special care according to its needs. Masks, shampoo, oil, spray… Here’s a selection of products to add to your summer hair routine.
Before exposing yourself to the sun, it is important to protect your hair. That’s why Kérastase offers this lightweight, protective cream that nourishes hair while protecting it from UV rays and breakage, but also controls frizz.
