A weekend at the seaside: coloured hair treatments to take with you
Coloured hair is a lot more sensitive to the effects of the sun, salt water and sand than other hair types. So staying 2-4 days at the seaside without any treatments is a complete no-no! Find out which products you should pop into your toiletries bag for your weekend away.
A multi-purpose suncare treatment
Say goodbye to course, dull locks at work after a weekend away at the beach. Every morning apply a dual-purpose product which will protect the hair shaft from UV rays which can wash out your hair’s colour. This type of treatment also allows you to compensate for the harmful effects of salt water and sand which can dry out your hair. Opt for a leave-in treatment such as Jean Louis David’s Sun Therapy Multi-Purpose Leave-in Gel which will help protect your hair all throughout the day. Whether you are brunette, blonde or a redhead, this product will act as a vital shield for your coloured locks!
A colour-protecting shampoo and hair mask
Days at the beach go hand in hand with having to wash your hair on a daily basis to prevent your hair colour from fading. In order to keep hold of its radiant shine , opt for formulations specifically designed for coloured hair that help to bond the pigments to the hair fibre. Our advice: reinforce the effects of shampoo by leaving a repair mask to soak in, to rehydrate and deeply restructure the hair shaft. This allows the colour to hold much better in your hair.
A rescue product designed for your hair colour
Have long swimming sessions and generous sun exposure got the better of your highlights? Opt for a colour enhancer specifically designed to refresh the different shades in your coloured hair. Another tip from the professionals? Avoid the straw effect in blond locks (which are even more fragile due to bleaching) by finishing off with a leave-in hydrating treatment.
Good to know: to travel light, opt for travel size products which are easy to pop into your suitcase!
