Be mindful of the sun's harsh rays this summer, warn our three hair experts

“Hair sunscreen is an actual thing. Your hair absorbs UV. Protect your hair with sun specific products like Davines Su's designated sun care hair range. Carry a sun milk spray in your beach bag and spritz at the beach or at the pool.” — Cat Frost, founder Kindred Human & Earth

“The ultraviolet rays of the sun literally cook the hair shaft, this damage is obvious when colour treated hair starts to look faded, bleached and brassy. Make a daily habit of applying a hair-care product that contains UV filters like the Solar range by System Professional. This will protect your hair from sun damage eliminating coloured hair from fading and while outside don’t forget to wear a wide-brimmed hat to further prevent the sun from cooking your hair.” —Trish Matthews, Director M11 Studio
