What are the most important things to do to keep my hair healthy during the summertime?
The first thing you need to do is prep your hair for summer. Get it in great condition prior to exposing it to summer's elements. If your hair is damaged, over-colored, or over processed, use a repair product like L'Oreal Professional Absolut Repair Masque for Very Damaged Hair to reinforce the protective layer of the hair. Second, always use leave-in conditioner or a hair shield when out in the sun (we like Frederic Fekkai SunShine Shield). Last, keep your strands hydrated. Before swimming in the pool or ocean, wet your hair down with bottled water to keep your hair from absorbing toxic elements such as chlorine or salt. After getting out of the water rinse your hair again with clean water to keep it hydrated.
