So you’ve packed the SPF for your body and face but what about your hair and head? It’s important to consider your hair and scalp as an extension of your face. It is – so treat it as such and use a good quality hair and scalp protector when you’re in the sun. We’re all aware of the damage the sun can cause to our skin – it can also play havoc with the follicles and send our colour in directions we don’t want to see.
If there’s one ‘must-do’ when you’re on holiday it’s to condition and protect your hair whenever you’re swimming as the sea salt or the chlorine can play havoc. Whenever you come out of the water try to swim and re-apply the protection products.
INTENSIFY TO BEAUTIFY
Consider investing in a good in-salon conditioning treatment such as Kerastase Fusio-Dose before you head off. These are intensive conditioning treatments, specifically prepared to suit your hair’s current condition and requirements. Such in-salon treatments can last up to two or three weeks and make a significant difference so perfect for when you’re away.
If you don’t opt for a pre-departure conditioning treatment, then once on holiday when you’re shampooing and conditioning your hair pop on a plastic shower camp or a plastic bag carefully over your conditioned and wet hair. The heat in the shower and the plastic will help intensify and re-moisture what can be extremely dried out hair after sun exposure.
Invest in good haircare to cope with your holiday heat and sunshine.
