Colored hair: Summer guide to proper care and color protection!

Colored hair needs meticulous and proper care all year round, especially in summer, when the hot sun, combined with sea salt or pool chlorine, dehydrates hair and affects the dye, making the color fade and lose its vibrancy faster. Therefore, during the summer season, colored hair needs enhanced hydration and protection to remain healthy and shiny for longer.
