Going for a swim at the beach or in the pool or having a few naps in the sun: in summer your daily routine changes.... As should your hair regime! Whatever you do, don't let your hair get damaged by UV rays, sand, salt and chlorine which dry out and weaken your locks. Instead, you can opt for an array of targeted treatments to protect and take care of your hair.
What's the star haircare product to use this summer? Sun protection gel of course! Yes, the sun does boost keratin production and promote growth whilst giving your locks pretty golden highlights. However, in high doses, it damages your hair just as much as it does your skin. Prevent any unpleasant surprises in autumn by using a treatment which is able to block out UV rays.
And to complete your hair regime this summer season, more than ever choose a shampoo suited to frequent washes (with a mild formulation) and treatments targeted to your hair type to keep your locks looking their best. Is your hair dry, fine or long and therefore more fragile? Swap your hydrating treatments for highly nourishing products. They minimise the impact of the constant onslaught your hair is subject to, helping to prevent the 'straw effect'. Are you a fan of colouring treatments? Opt for formulations rich in vitamins to bond the pigments to the hair fibre and to prevent your colour from washing out. Finally, deal with your greasy roots problem which is aggravated by the heat: a re-balancing treatment is a must during the summer months.
In this feature, you will find all of our advice on choosing the right hair treatments this summer!
