After the hot 4th of July weekend, I think it’s safe to say that summer is officially here. We hope you’ve been using your sunscreen! Did you know that our hair needs protection from the sun as well? Enter: Davines SU Hair Care Line. Today I am going to breakdown what products make up the Davines SU line as well as share the things you will never catch me at the beach or the pool without!
Davines Su Hair Care: 4 Products to Keep Your Hair Safe This Summer
Just like with your skin, the sun can damage the structure of your hair breaking down the proteins that make your hair strong. While the damage is largely aesthetic, if you like having shiny bouncy hair, it’s important to protect it from the harmful UV rays. Incorporating the Davines SU Hair Care Line into your summertime routine will make a huge difference!
What is it?
Leave-on, spray cream for hair, ideal both during and after exposure to the sun.
How to Use:
During exposure to the sun, spray all over dry or wet hair. As a leave-on, post-exposure conditioner: after shampooing, spray all over the hair and comb to distribute the product evenly. Do not rinse off.
Hair & Bodywash
What is it?
Delicate, restorative and moisturizing shampoo and shower gel with a formula that produces a rich and thick foam. It cleanses hair and body after sun exposure, helping to prolong the life of your tan!
How to Use:
Apply to wet hair and body. Gently massage and rinse. Repeat and then apply either the SU conditioner, the SU hair mask or the SU milk, according to your needs.
Restorative and hydrating anti-aging treatment for hair damaged by the sun, chlorine and salt.
How to Use
Apply all over wet hair after using SU/Hair & Body wash. Leave to work for 5-15 minutes, according to need. Rinse off thoroughly.
A soothing, mineral-rich gel that moisturizes and restores the skin’s hydration level after exposure to the sun.
How to Use
Apply to the skin with a gentle massage after exposure to the sun. Repeat application if necessary.
What’s in My Beach Bag?
Packing for a beach day can be overwhelming because you never know where the day will take you. Here is a list of my “Beach Day Essentials” that I won’t dip my toes in the water without:
Let’s start with the obvious Davines SU Hair Milk and Aftersun is in my bag anytime I’m going to be spending time in the sun. The Hair Milk can be sprayed on wet or dry hair and is really good at detangling. I like having the Aftersun because it rehydrates my skin after spending time in the sun and smells amazing!
One of the things I love most about a beach day is time to just sit and read. I find in my everyday life it’s easy to push off reading because all the other things that “need to be done”. Being on the beach or by the pool is the perfect place to read because there is nothing else you need to be doing. Whether it’s reading on my Kindle or listening to Audible, I’m in prime relaxation mode.
The amount of times I’ve been amped to go spend the afternoon by the pool just to be disappointed when I get there because I forgot my sunglasses at home is countless. I’ve actually gotten to the point that I leave a pair of sunglasses in the tote bag I always use for beach days to guarantee I at least have a pair.
Hailee, a stylist here at The Colour Bar, found this detangling brush online and introduced it to the team. I cannot live without it! It detangles my hair so easily and gently, making it perfect for prepping my hair before a beach day and for detangling after a long day in the sun, water and wind.
Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen
If I’m being completely honest, I was slow to the SPF game. I liked how my freckles would pop out after some time in the sun and didn’t want to jeopardize my tan. This year I found the Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen and fell in love! I love the nonsticky texture it has and that there is no whitecast from it no matter what skin tone you are. It’s become not only a beach bag staple but an everyday must have for me.
Insulated Water Bottle
Depending on where you’re going to be spending the day, water may be hard to access. I like bring a large insulated water bottle with a TON of ice. This gives me cold water the whole time in the sun to ensure I’m staying hydrated.
Until Next Time,
