Protect Your Locks From Sun and Pool Damage!

ThinkstockPhotos-478825243We all know how important it is to apply- and reapply- sunscreen before spending time in the sun to protect our skin from damage and health risks. But it can also be important to protect your hair from sun, salt and chlorine damage when enjoying the summer weather.

Sun and summer fun can dry your hair and cause a new color or highlight to look brassy or even change color as it reacts with the increased exposure to environmental elements. Ruby Salon in Annapolis offers some tips for keeping your summer locks looking and feeling soft and silky!

Summer Hair Tips

  • Wear a hat or swim cap
  • Wet your hair before swimming: wet hair is less likely to absorb water in the pool, lake or ocean, reducing the effects of chlorine or salt
  • Drink plenty of water: this hydrates your hair as well as the rest of your body
  • Regular hair cuts at Ruby Salon also promote healthy growth and reduces frizziness

Ruby Salon offers several great hair products for preventing sun and chlorine damage:

unnamed (2)Malibu Shampoo for swimmers removes chlorine after swimming to reduce the “green hair” effect!

unnamed (3)ColorProof Weightless Shine Spray provides UVA protection for the hair and helps to preserve your highlight or color process result.
