Summer Sun


There’s nothing like the pure joy of sun and water—enjoy even more knowing you can care for your hair before, during and after.

Your hair and skin are constantly exposed to the elements. We use sunscreen to protect our skin and aloe to nourish our skin after sun exposure, so what do we use to protect our hair while enjoying the summer sun?

Wherever you'll be under the sun this season, protecting your hair is a must. We talked to some of the top hairstylists in Portland at Dosha Salon Spa to find out their favorite Aveda sun care products. Discover their favorites and a super-easy 2-step routine, to be good to your hair (and yourself!) before and after sun exposure.
