Sun Hair by Sarah Tolan

Getting set to hit the beach? Spare your hair from getting frizzy, frazzled and dried out -- make sure you pack one of these dedicated hair essentials to give you perfect summer hair. Don't expose hair to strong sun rays without protection, especially if coloured or highlighted. Use a leave-in spray like Alterna's Summer Hair Sun Recovery Spray. Replenish dried out hair with a deep conditioning treatment. Pequi Oil Treatment helps restore moisture, making dry and color-treated hair shinier and softer.

Give hair some shine with the Moroccan Oil Glimmer Spray. It’s infused with Argan oil to protect hair from the damaging effects of UV rays and free radicals. It stops frizz and creates a smooth radiant finish, while strengthening the hair. Have a frizz-free beach trip thanks to Ouidad Climated Control Heat & Humidity Gel. It doesn't leave hair sticky or crunchy just sleek and smooth. Plus it protects and hydrates nourished hair. This product is available at Sephora.

When it comes to styling, there are some options. Want gorgoues beachy waves? Try Alterna Summer Hair Ocean Waves Texturizing Spray. Spray onto wet or dry hair for lightweight texture and volume. And it protects your colour. It’s available at Sephora. Or keep hair tamed with Living Proof Straight Spray To Go. Use on either wet or dry hair to keep hair frizz-free, just sleek, smooth and straight.
