Hair Care Tips From Bobbi Brown
How can I keep my hair color from turning brassy in the summer?

Bobbi: The best strategy is to shield your hair from the sun. My colorist says UV rays love to break apart hair-dye molecules, which can lead to fading. I’m a fan of baseball hats in the summer, but you can also wear a bandanna. At the beach, I protect my hair by coating it with regular spray-on sunscreen, which leaves it super-shiny. Also, I use a color-correcting shampoo or conditioner that eliminates brassiness by depositing just a bit of color pigment.
