Here comes the summer sun, and with it visions of being at the beach or relaxing poolside.   Whether you’re living in the Valley of the Sun or catching a wave in Cali, you shouldn’t have to worry about your hair color.  I asked Phoenix-based stylist, Penny at Hollywood And Mane, to address some of the most common summer hair questions.  Here’s what she had to say:

Q: Can I put regular sunscreen in my hair?

Penny:  I wouldn’t recommend it. Conventional sunscreen won’t absorb in your hair like it does your skin, so it’ll make your locks look and feel greasy.  Instead, you should purchase a sunscreen made specifically for hair.

Q: Do sunscreens in haircare products really work?

Penny:  Yes, hair sunscreen does work to give color protection.  Choose a haircare product that has all of the UV, UVA and UVB protecters, such as Paul Mitchell Color Protect Locking Spray.  This product helps to keep your high-definition color (that you spent a lot of time and money on) by preserving it to last longer. 

Q:  Is the sun the only thing I should be worried about this summer when it comes to my hair color?

Penny:  UV light does not cause as much fading as washing does, so combining all your resources to protect your hair is a must.  Definitely use shampoos and conditioners that are color friendly, such as our salon’s favorite Eufora haircare line.  Eufora is designed to protect, preserve and promote health of color-treated and chemically serviced hair,with the unique ingredient Aloe Vera – known as the miracle plant.  Eufora products are Hollywood And Mane’s clients’ choice, as well as our own.
