21st June 2017 - Summer Hair/Hair On Holiday…

Summer Hair/Hair On Holiday…
Wearing a hat will protect your hair, your skin and your hair colour (both natural and coloured hair will fade in the sun).
 
Wear a swimming cap, I know everyone hates them but they do help :)
 
Pool water contains sanitising agents to  protect us but the chlorine and copper in these products can sometimes turn blonde or grey hair green, ask your salon’s advice on how to solve this.
 
If swimming, wet hair before hand with fresh water (not with the pool/sea water) and use a leave in conditioner to help stop salt/chlorine penetrating the hair shaft.
 
Always rinse your hair with fresh water (not sea/pool water) after you have been in the water.
 
Protect your scalp, it can get sunburnt (especially your parting) so either wear a hat or use a scalp protector spray. If your scalp is burnt be extra careful when shampooing, use cooler water and a gentle shampoo, you could apply some aloe vera/after sun.
 
If your hair frizzes in the heat/humidity use an oil/curl cream and rich shampoo and conditioner, you may want to wash less then usual to keep the natural oils on the hair.
 
If your hair becomes flat and lank in the heat use a dry shampoo or a fibre dust to add body, when shampooing use a volumizing shampoo and conditioner and do a last minute cool rinse.
 
When shampooing be gentle, use a wide tooth comb or wet brush when detangling and start at the ends and work your way up the hair shaft.
 
Wear your hair up, a twisted bun or plaits are very popular this summer
 
Use the hairdryer as little as possible - if you are not taking your dryer, be careful of hotel dryers, they can be very hot or have erratic speeds.
 
After you have get home, use a clarifying shampoo to remove any salt, chemicals, sand or an overload of products and a good quality conditioner.
 
Keeping your hair and skin hydrated makes a difference - drink lots of water.
 
Have a trim when you get back from your holiday and if your colour has faded a toner or temporary colour can add tone and improve condition.
 
Most importantly have a great holiday and remember that your hair will recover…
