Great Summer Hair

Updated on June 18, 2007

Sunscreen for your hair? It may sound a little funny, but it is true- but need to protect your hair just as you protect your skin! "UV light alters the chemical structure of hair, leaving it drier, duller, and more prone to breaking," says Joel Warren, co-owner of Warren-Tricomi salon in New York City. With the hot summer sun just around the corner it is a good idea to look into some "hair sunscreens" and find one that is right for you.

A slew of new sunscreen-infused hair repairers prevent this damage; plus, each has bonus benefits to keep hair looking sensational. Here is a list of some of the latest:

1. If you want to Add Shine try:

Try Biolage Sunsorials Sun Repair Treatment ($14; salons)

For Best Results: Use weekly. This moisturizing mask mends damage; UV filters adhere to the hair shaft until your next shampoo.

2. If you want to Increase Manageability try:

Try KMS California SolPerfection All Day Defense ($17; salons)

For Best Results: Spritz on after shampooing, and apply frequently at the beach to keep color from fading. Silicone oil detangles, while vitamin B hydrates.

3. If you want to Refresh Hair Midday try:

Try Fekkai Wash & Wear Instant Shampoo Spray ($20; Sephora)

For Best Results: Spray on dry strands to cleanse without stripping. Sunflower and moringa seed extracts maintain silkiness.

4. If you want to Fight Flyaways try:

Try John Frieda Frizz-Ease Thermal Protection Formula Hair Serum ($10; drugstores)

For Best Results: Run through hair before styling; protective oils and vitamins shield your locks from heat.

Don't forget to moisturize your hair after washing at night, and do a hot oil treatment once a week. A great substitute for hot oil is an at-home deep conditioning. Soak hair in hot water, than add a generous amount of conditioner, leave on for 20 minutes and wash out with cool water. Spray-on/leave-in conditioning is another great item to help protect hair, and to keep the moisture in! My favorite is "No More Tangles Spray In"- designed for little kids it has some great scents like pear-apple, and berry splash! It also looks cute on the beach in fun colored containers.

If hair is already damaged from the sun consider wearing a hat at the beach, large rimmed beach hats are very cute, and keep the sun off your face as well! Baseball hats are always great as well!

Let me know if you have any other great products to add to the list- or have any comments about these products!
