Summer can be a great, carefree time of year. It's the season where you just want to get out and play in the warm, sunny weather and enjoy being outside. With so many outdoor activities going on during the summer, you probably spend a lot more time in the sun than usual.
Even though spending some time outside is nice, you shouldn't forget that the sun can mess with your beauty schedule. Of course, you know to apply sunscreen when you are going to be spending time in the sun, but what about other parts of your body that needs to be protected? Don't forget that your hair can be impacted by the sunny weather.
If you color your hair, you might be at risk for sun damage. Prolonged sun exposure can cause your hair to dry out and become discolored, leaving your once lovely locks looking limp and dull. Of course, one possible way to help your hair during the hot months is to go without coloring it for a while, but that's not a good option for everyone. If you want to keep your hair color for summer, try some of these ideas to help your look last longer:
Take care of your hair and moisturize it during the hot season, and your color can stay vibrant and beautiful. Avoid too much sun if you can, and prepare your hair beforehand if you do need to be in the sun for a long amount of time.
