Sunblock Does Not Stop at the Neck or Face. Make Sure Your Hair Is Protected Too!
For parts of the country that have sunshine, the time to start thinking about total body sun protection is now. However you need sun protection year round. As we head to the summer, protection against the sun’s harsh rays starts with a layer of full spectrum sunscreen applied to exposed skin, but it doesn’t end there.
When hair comes in contact with chlorine, wind and sand – three environmental factors that sunblock alone does not protect against – it can fade, split or dry out. Yikes!
Fruits & Passion saves the day — and your hair– withthe Tahitian Monoi Nourishing Hair Mask, which picks up on total summer hair protection where sunblock leaves off.
Because of the high percentage of Monoi de Tahiti*, this mask is an intense nourishing treatment for dry, damaged, color-treated, or processed hair. It rejuvenates, fortifies and nourishes after only one use and leaves the hair extremely soft, shiny, and manageable.
Expert Tips for Summer-Proofing Hair
**The chlorine in pools acts as a strong bleach, which discolors and tints hair. Protect it before diving in by applying a deep conditioner like the Tahitian Monoi Nourishing Hair Mask.
**Apply the Tahitian Monoi Nourishing Mask before hitting the sun, as the heat will maximize penetration of hair.
**Sun-proof your hair color before the summer season. Blondes or brunettes should go half a shade darker, knowing that the color will fade.
**Wearing a straw hat still allows for the sun to peak through. Apply Fruits & Passion’s Tahitian Monoi Nourishing Hair Mask underneath it to prevent color fading or hair from becoming dry and brittle.
**Minimize hair’s exposure to the sun between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. when the rays are the most potent.
**Before summer, trim split ends and handle hair repairs. For dry hair, readers should have a professional deep-conditioning treatment to avoid potential frizzies. To maintain its benefits throughout the summer, the Tahitian Monoi Nourishing Mask should be used weekly.
**Use the right summer hair care products. Some hair care products work better than others at filtering the sun because of the way they interact with the hair cuticle. Rinse out, leave-in, and deep conditioners (like the Tahitian Monoi Nourishing Hair Mask) are designed to soak deeply into the hair cuticle offering hidden sun blocking protection. Coated cuticles are more resistant to summer toxins.
Put a small drop into the palm of your hands and rub them to soften the product. Distribute evenly onto dry hair (avoid the scalp area). Leave on for 10 to 20 minutes then shampoo and rinse.
For intense treatment: Leave in for a whole day or overnight (protect the pillowcase).
During the summer season: Apply to hair before swimming or before sun exposure to prevent dryness and fading.
