Summer is almost here and with it comes sunshine, lying on the beach and swimming in the pool. We all prepare for the UV rays with our SPF to help protect our skin, but SPF for our hair is just as important! Believe it or not, the harmful UV rays that cause damage to our skin can actually cause damage to our hair too! Because of this, we need products to help treat and prevent the discoloration and damage the toll of sitting in the sun can take on our luscious locks.
