Wellness isn’t just about keeping your body healthy; all of you needs to be healthy for that harmony to occur. That means, among other things, taking good care of your hair. Some of you may be asking, “What does my hair have to do with wellness?” Well, for starters, there are tiny blood vessels that feed your hair follicles, which help those follicles grow. So, it’s important that your hair stay in tip-top shape at all times.
With the sun constantly shining during the summer months, not only is it important to protect your skin from UV rays, it is also important to protect your hair. Take these tips into consideration this summer, and you’ll have gorgeous, healthy locks that would make Rapunzel jealous.
Before you head out for a day on the beach or shopping at the flea market, it is always worthwhile to put on some sun defense. Besides a big floppy hat, the Aveda Sun Care Protective Hair Veil is a good tool to use to guard your mane. Spray this tiny bottle of liquid only a few times around your head when you’re prepping to leave for the day, and an unseen screen of UV-blocking rays forms around your head. It’s just that simple. Colored hair? No problem; this Aveda product can be used on treated hair and untreated hair for color protection in the sun as well. Plus, this baby is assured to work for up to 16 hours — just don’t forget to reply after prolonged sun exposure.
When you get home from that long day of swimming or riding roller coasters at Kings Island, there is more security for that windswept look you spent all day achieving. Hop in the shower and lather some Aveda Sun Care After-Sun Masque into every inch of your hair. This cream not only helps moisturize tresses after being outside all day, it also helps prevent chlorine damage. Talk about a double threat.
Along with the After-Sun Masque, be sure to use some Sun Care Hair and Body Cleanser while in the shower. Use this cleanser weekly or immediately after exposure to the sun for optimization. This product does double duty when it comes to sun protection: a unique formula enables it to work on both hair and body, leaving you without having to wonder if there is any aloe around the house.
And don’t forget about one of the most important parts when it comes to summer sun protection: skin care. Before heading out for the day, use Aveda Inner Light™ Mineral Tinted Moisture in SPF 15. Both UVA and UVB rays won’t penetrate your skin with Inner Light™. This moisturizer isn’t greasy like many sunblocks; it is oil-free, leaving your skin feeling like there is nothing there. Plus, this moisturizer comes in a variety of skin tones, meaning you’ll find one that fits pale you and one that fits tan you.
Wellness is significant to all aspects of life. But taking care of yourself doesn’t mean you have to completely change your daily beauty regimen. Just adding in a few moments per day to give your hair (and skin) the sun defense they deserve can make a difference between being healthy and needing to make a pharmacy run to get some Aloe vera.
