I know that in the summer my hair suffers more than usual. Even though I'm not the person who lays on the beach, I do swim and spend a lot of time outdoors during the warm (I guess I should say "warmer" considering I live in LA) months. Goldwell has just released an awesome new line of products, Sun Reflects, which are specifically designed to care for your hair in the summer sun. Even if you're not a beach bunny, you can definitely still benefit from them (especially those of us with colored hair that we don't want to fade). The collection includes four fantastic products - Leave-In Protect Spray, which acts as a coating against UV rays but doesn't make hair sticky or crunchy, After-Sun Hair & Body Shampoo - a tropical scented (passion fruit/mango) product which leaves hair soft and smelling sweet, After-Sun 60sec Treatment - a thick mask which conditions and helps damaged hair to recover from sun, pool and sea water, and Leave-In Protect Shimmer Gel - my favorite of the bunch. This gel has tiny flecks of gold in it that makes hair shimmer and look fabulous. It doesn't leave hair feeling sticky or crunchy, although it does have some holding power. What really won me over was how shiny it made my hair. It's a great line at very reasonable prices. And really, this is the stuff to have in your arsenal if your mom is anything like mine when she would always say to me, "If you spend that much time in the pool, your hair is going to dry out." Not anymore it's not!
