How best to prepare your hair for summer?

Although you might be looking forward to the summer season, your hair would happily go without it, and with good reason. What with UV rays, sea salt, sand and chlorine from swimming pools, the summer months aren't exactly a holiday for your hair. Subject to daily damage, your hair becomes dry, dull and brittle. To avoid that dreaded straw-like effect, the best thing you can do is to prepare your locks for summer. They need to be as healthy as possible before facing the onslaught of the season, particularly if you already have dry hair. If this is the case for you, consider getting your already fragile tips trimmed to get rid of any split ends. A month before you fly off to your next sunny destination, you could also apply a wheat germ treatment. Rich in Vitamin A, B and magnesium, this dietary supplement gives your hair all of the required nutrients to keep it in tip top condition.

For all other hair types, all you need do is protect your hair prior to each sun exposure, just as you would protect your skin. For those tempted to apply monoi oil, forget the idea. Under the action of the sun, this oil will "fry" your hair. Instead, rely on sun protection treatments. Our advice is to choose your products according to the nature of your hair. If you have fine hair, opt for light textures such as sprays. On the other hand if your hair is thick, go for more nourishing creams.

Taking care of my dry hair

Just like your skin, your hair is exposed to the elements of everyday life. It is subjected to pollution, UV rays, stress…and can easily become dry.

Fragile in nature and often limp and lifeless, is your fine hair making your life difficult? Rest assured, your locks are not a lost cause! You simply need to take a few measures to prevent your hair from causing you problems.

Regarding your haircut, opt for a short style. A long bob, chin-length hair or a boyish pixie style are the dream haircuts to minimise how fine your hair looks. The same goes for men: the shorter the haircut the better! Whatever your hair's length, layers are an excellent option for creating more volume, providing they are put in carefully so as to not thin out the hair too much. Otherwise, this might make your hair more brittle. Furthermore, do not deprive yourself of a fringe - if you choose the right one it can work wonders and make your locks look thicker.

As for products, choose them wisely by opting for targeted formulations which can boost volume from the very first wash! Not forgetting a lightweight mask which will nourish your hair without weighing it down. Moreover, do not overlook the importance of a colouring treatment! An array of shades can add depth to the cut for hair that looks full of body. Finally, go for hairstyles which are perfectly suited to your hair type: a wavy blow-dried style which gives you bigger hair than a classic blow-dry; a half-ponytail with a quiff, rather than a slicked-back look; or curls rather then straightened locks... Consider cheating with styling products which coat and thicken the hair fibre. They give your locks extra hold. Furthermore, dare to try out accessories such as foam donuts which can create a hairstyle full of volume in the blink of an eye. Clever!
