With Summer finally here, we wanted to ensure your hair and skin is fully protected before you spend your days outside, whether you're gardening, jumping into a lake (or pool!), or on a picnic.
As much as the sun does provide our bodies with vitamin D, too much of anything isn't ever advise. If you're exposed to it for long hours and not protected it could cause damage that was preventable. With the help of stylist recommended SPF and heat protectants below, you can still get a beautiful sun kissed glow and stay safe! For more information on UV (ultraviolet) Radiation click here.
What does SPF Mean?
'SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. The number tells you how long the sun’s UVB rays would take to redden your skin if you apply the sunscreen exactly as directed compared with the amount of time without sunscreen. So, if you use an SPF 30 product properly, it would take you 30 times longer to burn than if you used no sunscreen. For more information on SPF' click here.
Below is a list of haircare and skincare products that can help preserve your hair colour as well as protect your hair and skin from harmful UV rays:
