Everybody loves the sunshine – that little ray of vitamin D makes you feel fantastic and everything else in the world seems that little bit more fabulous. However, you must remember that when you’re slathering on the sun cream to protect your skin and to get that glorious summer glow, it’s just as important to protect your hair too.
Our top tips:
- Always wash and shampoo your hair after a day of swimming in the pool. This gets rid of the harmful effects of chlorine, which can build up on the hair and cause problems to natural and colour treated hair i.e. hair turning greenish, hair breakage and damage!
- If you’re a sun worshipper why not apply a spray conditioner or protection spritz throughout the day, similar to how you would apply sun cream. This helps ‘top up’ the sun protection on your hair.
- A lightweight conditioning treatment is the perfect indulgence for your hair after a long day in the sun. Apply to towel-dried hair and leave for 5-10 minutes before rinsing. Not only will sun stressed hair be rehydrated and nourished, your hair will be shiny and soft, ready for the evening!
