The summer sun brings warmth, joy, and so many outdoor activities. While we often take precautions to protect our skin from harmful UV rays, it's equally important to shield our hair from the sun's damaging effects. Excessive sun exposure can lead to dryness, brittleness, discoloration, and frizz - but don't fret! The Salon@Church team is here to share some effective ways to protect your hair from UV rays this summer, along with recommended products to keep your locks healthy and vibrant!
Opt For UV-Protecting Products
The easiest way to protect your hair from harmful sun rays is to use specially formulated products that contain UV filters and protective ingredients! These products can act as a barrier against the sun's damaging rays. A leave-in conditioner we love is Redken’s One United! This leave-in conditioner is perfect for the summer as it primes your hair for styling while protecting it from external aggressors including the sun's UV rays. Redken’s One United is also great as it helps prevent colour fading, dryness, and breakage caused by prolonged sun exposure!
Another protective product that is new to Salon@Church is Design Me’s Hydrating Mask. This hydrating mask is the perfect product to add to your summer routine as it adds a ton of shine, boosts hydration, and encourages the repair of damaged hair!

Don’t Forget Your Hat!
When you’re out and about this summer don't forget to pack a hat! Opt for a cap or wide-brimmed hat to provide maximum scalp, hair, and face coverage. This not only safeguards your hair from harmful UV rays but also adds a stylish touch to your summer outfits.
Limit Exposure During Peak Hours
When the sun's rays are at their strongest, usually between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., try to limit your hair's exposure to direct sunlight. Seek shade whenever possible if you'll be outdoors for extended periods. Doing this can significantly reduce UV damage and keep your hair healthier in the long run.
As you enjoy the sunny days of summer, it's crucial to protect your hair from the damaging effects of UV rays. By implementing these simple yet effective tips and using hair products with UV protection, you can keep your locks vibrant, and healthy all summer long. At Salon@Church, we can help you look and feel your best with a fresh cut, colour, or style just in time for summer!
