How to Protect Your Hair from Sun Damage

The summer months are for enjoying the warm weather and spending time outside. Whether you’re traveling, hiking, camping, or lying by the pool, UV protection is essential for your skin AND hair. Sun damage can cause dry hair, discoloration, broken or split ends, thinning, and frizziness.

Shield your strands from harmful UV rays with these summer beauty essentials for the hair and scalp.

Tip: Wear a hat or scarf to shield your hair from the sun and avoid heat-styling tools during the summer months for even healthier hair.


Don’t Forget Your Lashes & Brows

Whether you’re rocking a no-makeup makeup vibe this summer or going full glam for a music festival or concert, lush lashes and brows will always boost your look. The key to longer-looking lashes and full brows is consistency. Commit to the habit of using lash and brow serums for the best results. After cleansing, use The Best Sellers Set once daily before bed.
