Dull and lifeless locks? Follow our summer hair care tips and keep your tresses looking - and feeling - it’s best!
On your marks!
Texture and shine are your two summer hair essentials. Before you leave for your holiday, schedule an appointment with the hairdresser for a rinse-out color that won't show re-growth. The color pigment will coat your hair, making it more shiny and manageable.
If it's texture you're after, high- or low-lights will break up solid color and add volume. A few layers are another option - rough-dry for a shaggy look or blow-dry sleek for a longer, more sophisticated finish.
Handle with care!
Products that suit your hair type are particularly important when you spend a lot of time in the sun. Harsh elements and regular swimming can leave your hair in a post-holiday frazzled mess – the only solution will be to cut it. Don't over wash; use shampoo every other day, but rinse well and condition every day to keep your hair manageable and looking good.
A deep-conditioning treatment such as a hair mask, hot oil treatment or leave-in conditioner to bump up the moisture will keep your locks looking lovely all summer long.
Frizzless and fuss-free.
A good holiday means not having to stress about anything, including your hair. Use effective styling products to control beach-induced frizz and to make styling a breeze.
Try these gentle and simple solutions:
- Use a leave-in treatment and comb your hair back into a low chignon for a sleek beach look... and it conditions as well.
- Have fun with your hair even when you're trying to control it. By adding a simple accessory, you can change your regular, nine-to-five hair into a style that says "holiday".
- Avoid bands that damage your hair. Rather use a clip or a scarf that has a soft hold and looks pretty.
- Wear a hat. It protects your skin and hair, and it's a wonderful accessory.
