Protecting our face and body from the sun is second nature, without even thinking we diligently apply sunscreen before leaving the house. So why not hair? Prolonged exposure to the sun can cause discolouration, dryness, split ends, thinning and frizziness. Not exactly the recipe for a good hair day.
The struggle of colour fading is real, especially if you’re going for a pastel pink or purple look. Ultra violet hair will fade faster than the setting sun if you don’t protect it from ultraviolet rays. AG’s Colour Care line contains powerful polyphenols, which are the natural compounds that keep flowers looking so bright and vibrant, even in intense sunlight. Each Colour Care product also contains Sunflower Seed Extract which combats free radicals and protects hair against UVA and UVB rays, so your hair colour stays looking fresh.
Hair Sunscreen How-To
Post shower, prep hair with Deflect to add slip, shine and thermal protection. Follow up with BB Cream, which in addition to polyphenols and sunflower seed extract, also contains Moringa Pterygosperma seed extract that provides an extra layer of UVA/UVB protection. Blow or air dry.
Have fun in the sun and hold on to your colour like the last days of summer. Bring your BB Cream to the beach, pool or lake to reapply after swimming.
