Summer raises some important questions - how much SPF is good enough for your skin? What are the safe ways of getting a tan? Are tanning sprays harsh on our complexion? While all these are valid queries, we're worried about the fact that no one is asking about tips for healthy hair to protect them in the summer months. Studies have proved that excessive sun exposure erodes protein and pigment in hair and that a UV-protectant for your mane is equally important. Hence we thought it was time to put together a few tips for healthy hair and the best sun care products you should add to your beach bag.
