The sun can be your hair’s worst enemy and as it shines all year round in this part of the world, it is imperative to care, support, and protect your hair in order to keep it healthy.
Toni&Guy International Director, David Mercer, advises: “Moisture is essential to healthy looking hair. UV rays draw out moisture from within the hair, resulting in the appearance of dry, brittle hair. So, it is vital to maintain your hair’s health, shine, and condition through constant summer conditions.”
What Can You Do?
- Make it Easy - Firstly, your cut is crucial to achieving manageable healthy hair. Make sure you have a cut that suits your lifestyle and hair type. This makes your look easy to maintain on a daily basis. To prevent any long term damage, keep your hair in optimum condition with the help of deep conditioning treatments which boost essential moisture levels and also supply protein strength back to the hair.
- Protect - Dark or light, the sun can damage your hair. To prevent colour fade and UV damage, try using gels with built-in, paba-free sunscreen. Another great solution is to use sprays with sunscreen or leave-in conditioners with moisture retention. Try adding a sun protection regime for your hair to your daily routine – just the same as you do for your skin.
- Repair - Sun, salt water, sand, and chlorinated pools can wreak havoc on our hair. To help repair damage try super-enriched moisture shampoos which provide maximum reconstruction from the inside of each hair. Swimmers should look for deep cleansing shampoos which contain advanced agents to remove submerged chlorine from the hair, as well as conditioners which will moisturize, thicken, strengthen, and prevent colour fade.
- Soothe - To cool off at the end of a hot day, try a relaxing scalp treatment. Peppermint treaments can help soothe and invigorate by increasing oxygen flow…plus it just feels heavenly.
