With the long summer holidays just around the corner, I thought I’d focus on my favourite holiday hair care heroes. We all know how important it is to protect our skin from the damaging affects of the sun, however our hair is often overlooked. Have you noticed how dry, frizzy and generally damaged your hair can look and feel during the summer months? This does not need to be the case. To keep your hair shiny, healthy and colour rich during the heat of summer you just need to offer it some TLHC (tender loving hair care). Here are five of my current favourite summer hair heroes…
As you’d expect from their names these duo protect and nourish your hair after prolonged sun exposure. I have highlighted hair and these duo stop it from getting dry and straw like after too much sun. They’re also great to use after swimming (in the sea or the pool), as the shampoo gently clenases your hair of chlorine or salt and the nourishing balm leaves it feeling soft and healthy. I absolutely love these products and can’t recommend them enough, especially if you’re going on a beach holiday.
I’m a big fan of L’Oreal Professionnel products but this has to be up there as one of my absolute favourite products. It gives amazing texture and volume in a matt spray that leaves your hair looking effortlessly tousled and bouncy. A little goes a long way with this one, I simply tip my head upside down and spray the product into the ends, then bring my head back up and run my fingers through the ends to finish the look. Also this spray smells incredible and which now reminds me of summer.
You want you hair to stay glossy and healthy during the summer months? Try this bottle of gorgeousness! Mythical Oil is the perfect name for it because it really will transom your hair from frizzy and damaged to healthy and shiny. I normally take two or three pumps of the oil and rub it between my palms before running my hands through my damp hair, then dry normally. The results speak for themselves.
This one’s an oldie but a goodie! I must have been using this product off and on for the past fifteen years and although I’ve now progressed to the L’Oreal Wilde Styles spray (which I mentioned above) I do also love this as an alternative. This tends to be the version I’d take with me to the beach or the pool. Again, a little goes a long way, it’s very easy to over do it and spay too much product into your, which can leave it sticky and looking matted. It’s best to spray a little at a time and manipulate your hair using your fingers for the best result.
Enjoy the summer!!
