Take a sip from your tropical refreshment, flip the page of your magazine, brush the hair from your face, and repeat. Meet the mantra of summer- minus the last part. While a cool breeze is heavenly when you’re lounging poolside, excessive wind, sun exposure, plus a cringe-worthy cocktail of salt and chlorine can leave you looking more ‘Survivor,’ less ‘Bachelor in Paradise.’ Before you start wearing a shower cap to the beach, let me remind you that Number 4 hair care was designed for jetsetters like you who want protection from the elements while still feeling pretty! All you weekend warriors, this one’s for you: simple and effective tips to care for your hair in the summer.
‘Screen Your Strands
The importance of protecting your skin from the sun’s rays cannot be underestimated, so why not extend the same courtesy to your strands? Particularly if you’ve color-treated your hair, the best way to preserve your investment is with a UVA/UVB blocking agent such as Sunflower Oil, the key ingredient to Fluoro5 Elixer Restore and Repair Oil. Simply apply 1-2 pumps to wet or dry hair for sun protection, added softness, and brilliant shine.
Tame Those Tresses
The single most damaging element to hair is wind, which is why taming your tresses is essential before a blustery beach day. The best place to start is with a style that pulls hair off your face and keeps it contained. We recommend any variation on braids and layered ponytails, which are not only a safe bet for protecting your hair, but tend to look beachy and boho, naturally! For added smoothness and to keep flyaways at bay, spread a nickel-sized amount of Texture Styling Crème, across your temples and along the crown of your head for added dimension.
Lastly, when you return home from your day of fun in the sun, you’re going to need to detangle your ‘do from the day’s activities. However, you should know that even after removing any trace of chlorine or salt with a rinse in the shower, your hair is still the most susceptible to damage to when it’s wet. Therefore, gentle detangling is your number one priority for your summer hair care routine. Super Comb Prep & Protect Spray takes the bicep challenge out of combing through tough knots, ensuring that you aren’t tearing any of your hair out in the process.
