The Pros: do I need to prepare my hair for summer?

Summer is getting closer and closer. So, the big question is should you change your haircare routine? And how should you be styling your locks on vacation this year? Our pros give their top tips.
Special products are not really necessary before summer has arrived. ‘Continue your regular haircare routine as normal. Your hair will need to be protected, yet only when in direct contact with the sun. You can then think about applying the Multi-function Gel from the Sun Therapy Range to counteract harmful UV rays. However, you can also make a great start by trimming your ends to prevent further damage. If your hair is already damaged, summer can wreak havoc and worsen the situation’.
Applying a new hair color just before summer is not something to avoid. ‘In fact, coloring your hair just before going away on vacation is actually the best time as your color will not fade despite frequent dips in the pool and over-washing. Similarly, your color will become sun-kissed thanks to light that reflects from your style. Another option is to give your color a miss and let the sun work its own magic on your hair, lightening it naturally. It’s all a question of what you prefer best!’
Our advice: Your hair should not become damaged, providing you take care of it. The only exception is when it is already fragile (dry, faded, breakage-prone). If this is the case, you need to start using products designed to treat the problem. If, on the other hand, your hair is in good shape, simply hydrate regularly with products such as those found in the Oil Therapy range. Follow these tips and your hair will make it through summertime with ease!
