The best care to protect colored hair this summer

The best care to protect colored hair this summer

It’s no secret that colored hair is particularly fragile. And all the more so in summer, when they are subject to the deleterious effects of the sun, the sea, chlorine or even sand. If it is preferable to bet on vegetable colorings – free of any controversial ingredient and which have the same virtues as a care, without being less effective than a traditional coloring -, the return of the beautiful season also implies a change in her hair routine.

The (many) harmful effects of summer on colored hair

On the one hand, UV rays alter the keratin present in the hair as well as the reflections of the coloring. On the other hand, sea or chlorinated water creates a favorable ground for the oxidation of the hair fiber, which makes it all the more fragile. Consequence: The hair becomes duller, loses its shine and pigments. To cope with these multiple attacks, colored hair has every interest in betting – even before leaving for the holidays – on shampoos and conditioners with moisturizing agents. The more the hair fiber is hydrated, the more it will have the right assets to prepare itself against external aggressions.
