    Step 1: Prepare Your Hair

    To begin your regime of protecting your hair in the sun, you need to make sure it’s in the best state possible, which means keeping your hair moisturized and conditioned without a build-up of too much product.

    For frizz control and extra shine to your hair, Keranique’s Marula Oil Hair Treatment Mist contains natural Mongongo, Marula and Cyperus oils that help achieve a healthy start to the appearance of your hair – conditioned and moisturized.

    African oils in this product work well as another protective layer of antioxidants on the hair, leaving a fresh finish to your overall look. Another key ingredient is Cyclopentasiloxane, which contains silicone that gives a silky and supple feel without weighing the hair down with greasy residue.

    Keranique’s treatment needs to be applied to damp hair for maximum results.

    Once your hair’s in pristine condition, it’s time to move on to another one of Keranique’s products – the Amplifying Lift and Repair Treatment Spray.

    Key ingredients within this hair treatment help contribute to hair strengthening and form a sheer film on the hair, therefore providing an additional layer to the hair protecting it from the sun. This is a result from Sufopolyester Fiber and Keravis Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, which work together to keep your hair safe from sun damage.

    How to use: Massage the roots to boost and lift the texture of your hair.

    Recommended after product: Follow this routine with Keratin Amino Complex to thicken, strengthen and protect hair for an additional volume boost.

    Step 3: Hair Styles

    There’s nothing like protecting your hair with style; here’s Alterna’s Bamboo Luminous Silk-Sleek Brilliance Crème.

    Notorious for its color hold technology for color retention, the high gloss cream acts as a sheer layer of shine, leaving hair to appear fresh and vibrant.

    With the antioxidants preventing free radical damage to the hair in sight, there should be no more fears of hair damage or discoloration from the sun. This product can be used on wet or dry hair so you can chose which process you feel is most appropriate.

    *Hair spray Tip: Aside from hair protection, it’s always a plus to look fabulous anyway – so ensure you’ve always got a decent hair spray to hand for a voluminous finish with Rahua’s organic voluminous spray.

    Now your hair’s perfectly prepared and protected, it’s time to get to grips with Color Enhancing haircare products sticking with Alterna.

    Alterna’s Bamboo UV and Vibrant Color Shampoo contains pure Organic Bamboo Extract with color-locking and damage-locking Kalahari Melon Extract; both extracts of which help maintain fresh, vibrant-colored hair.

    A further unique selling point to this product is that it contains rinse-resistant Color Hold UV+ Technology that enables your hair to contain a powerful protection to the color of your hair. Prevention of color fade is provided from the UV filters which protect the hair color against oxidative damage.

    As a perfectly formulated shampoo, it’s best to thoroughly rinse from a good massage to wet both the hair and scalp, and use a conditioner afterwards for optimal results.
