Protect Your Hair from Holiday Mistakes

You are here

The holiday season is fast approaching and for many of us this means a week away in sunny bliss. A relaxing getaway is amazing for our wellbeing but can sometimes take its toll on our hair.


Whilst the ocean of course does have its health benefits, unfortunately this does not extend to our hair. As salt is a natural dehydrator, and as our hair thrives most when it is hydrated, salt water strips the hair of its precious moisture, resulting in dry, brittle and difficult to manage hair. Natural oils are the perfect fix for salt damaged hair, as they replicate the sebum produced from our scalp.

The Hairapeutix pre-shampoo treatment is the perfect solution for hair that has been damaged by salt water. Hairapeutix is all natural, no chemicals, silicones or parabens, and the high-quality selection of oils combined in the unique formula work to penetrate beneath the hair’s surface, giving your dehydrated hair the much-needed moisture injection it is craving.


Sebum is the natural oil produced from the scalp and is responsible for keeping our hair soft and smooth. When the hair is exposed to chlorine, the sebum is stripped away, resulting in chlorine damage, which makes your tresses dry, brittle, difficult to brush and in some cases discoloured.

There are a few steps to prevent this damage from happening. Before swimming, wash your hair in clean water - this way your hair will not be able to soak up as much chlorinated water. Then apply a natural oil such as Hairapeutix to the ends of your hair before swimming; this will further reduce the absorption of chlorine into the hair.

Once you are finished in the pool, wash your hair thoroughly with a good quality shampoo and conditioner, the longer chlorine stays in the hair, the more it can strip away moisture, so washing out the chlorine is very important.

Hairapeutix pre-shampoo treatment is a unique combination of oils such as coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil, almond oil and amla oil, all of which have similar properties to sebum.
