Finally, we’re approaching the time of year where we can start to leave windows open at night, go for longer walks after work and happily get our toes in the water without fear of frostbite. Summer is coming!

Unfortunately hidden behind summer’s sizzling haze is a range of potential hair problems caused by high temperatures, salt water, travel and humidity, just to name a few.

Luckily there’s a few easy things you can do to keep things under control.


Firstly, speak with your stylist about a cut or style which suits your summer activity. Ask yourself ‘what am doing over the warmer months?’. If you’re planning on spending weeks in a tent or hours on the road with the family it might be worth waiting for a few months for that glamorous new look. Keep it natural and manageable.

Regardless of style you’ll need to make sure you’re looking after the health of your hair.

Aveda has some great product combinations to help protect your hair and conserve your colour in summer.


Sun Care Protective Hair Veil is a lightweight, water-resistant UV defence mist that forms an invisible screen to help protect hair from sun exposure for up to 16 hours. It also minimises colour fading, damage and dryness.

Sun Care Hair & Body Cleanser will remove chlorine and salt build-up whilst maintaining moisture in the hair through Tamanu oil and certified organic coconut oil.

Sun Care After-Sun Hair Masque is an intensive masque that restores moisture and nourishes sun-exposed hair. The anti-oxidizing blend of green tea extract, certified organic sunflower seed oil and vitamin E will help protect against free radicals


Color Conserve Shampoo is a gentle plant-infused shampoo and helps resist fading. It will keep your hair colour vibrant for longer.

Color Conserve Conditioner works best in combination with the Color Conserve Shampoo. The plant-based conditioner seals hair cuticles to help lock in color and shine and protect colour-treated hair from damaging effects of the sun and water.

Color Conserve Daily Leave In Treatment is the perfect start to a day! It instantly intensifies color radiance and seals and smooths the cuticle for increased shine. It uses Aveda’s own pure-fume™ aroma with certified organic lavender, geranium, grapefruit and other pure flower and plant essences.
