Aveda wants to save your summer-stressed strands

We still have a month of summer left, when means there’s plenty of time for sun, salt and chlorine to do a number on your hair. Although I hope you’ve been shielding your tresses from the elements as diligently as you’ve been protecting your skin, odds are you’ve had a fair share of fun in the sun without a hat or taking other measures to offset color fading and damage. Enter Aveda’s new-for-2014 Sun Care hair products, which help summer-proof your hair both before and after you step outside.

Whether you’re swimming in the ocean or the pool, it’s essential to wash your hair immediately after you’re back on dry land. The Hair and Body Cleanser gently yet effectively removes every last trace of chlorine, salt and product buildup while rehydrating your hair. The After-Sun Hair Masque is an intense treatment that replenishes lost moisture, and you can even go from the beach to the street by slicking hair back after you slather it on. And last (or first, rather), the Protective Hair Veil offers lightweight, water-resistant protection against sun-induced color fading, damage and dryness for up to 16 hours so you’re covered with just one spritz session before heading out for the day.

Here’s to a weekend of happy, healthy hair!
