Protect hair from the sun this summer
I’ve talked about the importance of protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays on the blog numerous time, but you should also be protecting your hair too. For someone who colour treats their hair monthly, like I do, this is also extremely important to help prevent fading and so your colour stays as vibrant as the day you coloured it. Kérastase Paris Soleil Collection is a unique trio designed to protect, repair and beautify with its shampoo, mask and micro-mist. These three winning products with help to reinforce, nourish and illuminate the hair all summer long.
Kérastase Paris Masque UV Défense Active is an after sun replenishing mask, for those with colour treated hair, that helps to strengthen hair fibres while enhancing highlights and protecting colour. It’s formulated with UV filters known to protect against fibre photo-degradation caused by UR rays, cationic conditioning agents that coat hair fibers to make it more hydrophobic and ceramides that help to strengthen the hair cuticle and rebuild lipid barrier. It also contains texturizing polymers for easy and effortless styling.
Kérastase Paris Masque UV Défense Active comes in a large red jar with a bright orange, slightly gel-like, goopy texture. It has a lightweight, almost watery consistency that applies evenly to the hair. Simply spread on a small quarter size amount to towel dry hair and massage lightly into the hair. Wait a few minutes before rinsing thoroughly. It washes clean away without a greasy or oily residue and it doesn’t seem to weigh the hair down or feel heavy. It has the sweet and summery scent of fresh citrus that tends to linger on the hair for a few hours after washing.
Kérastase Paris Masque UV Défense Active does a wonderful job at detangling my hair, even before brushing. It left it incredibly soft and smooth and also seemed to control frizz and fly-a-ways. It highly conditions, nourishes and hydrated the hair without feeling weighted down. My hair instantly feels healthier and more moisturized after every treatment. It gives a silky, shiny finish without looking greasy. The fact that it does all this, plus protects my coloured hair from the sun, is just one of the reasons this is a must for summer. This would also make the perfect pre-pool or ocean swim and great for travel. It retails for $38 for 200ml.
