Summer Secret: Your Hair Needs Protection Too

We know it’s important to slather on sunscreen when we escape the indoors for sun-soaked fun. But did you know your hair needs to be protected too?


Keep your color
Sun exposure is the number one cause of color fade, but that doesn’t mean you need to hide inside all summer. You can combat the fade by trading in your usual shampoo and conditioner for products that offer color protection like Paul Mitchell Color Protect Daily Shampoo and Conditioner. They are both made with powerful antioxidants, provide UVA and UVB protection, and nourish with a blend of natural extracts. With this powerful combo, your hair will hold its color while looking and feeling soft and healthy all summer.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
Not only does exposure to the sun fade hair color, it leaves hair looking dull, feeling dry and becoming prone to breakage. Because moisture is drawn out from hair anytime it’s exposed to heat—from hot tools or the sun’s rays—it’s important to use rich moisturizing products to rehydrate it. By using hydrating styling products like Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Hydrocream Whip and Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Styling Treatment Oil, you can treat and protect your hair while creating smooth, silky, long-lasting styles.


Get a boost
Quench thirsty hair between washes with Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Moisture Mist. A light liquid moisturizer for your hair that replenishes your skin too, spray generously all over—anytime more moisture is needed. Made with Hawaiian awapuhi and natural extracts packed with amino acids and vitamins, this hydrating spray brings hair and skin back to life.
