That stint of glorious weather has made our skin glow, the smiles big and our hair lightly sunkissed. Sunkissed shining locks are essential to any summer outfit; however maintaining healthy hair in summer can be slightly difficult. Fear not barnet watchers, we have the necessary tips to revive, maintain and boost hair into full-blown gorgeousness.
Step 1: Pre sunny spells
Hair needs to be protected just as much as your skin believe it or not. So spritz ends with a protective mist or massage lengths with UVA blocking oil. To keep things quick, simple and smelling divine try Aveda’s Sun Care Protective Veil.
Step 2: During sunbathing, pool hopping or sea bathing
So whilst you’re soaking up the sun and feeling the vibe don’t be afraid to just let it all hang out. We’re talking about the hair, obviously. Keep it loose and natural with some untamed braids, a lazy Sunday bun or side pony.
Step 3: When the sun goes down
After the glorious day you’ve just had wrap it up with a hydrating hair mask. Don’t panic it won’t leave your hair heavy – but glistening like the moonlight and fully protected. Tried and tested: Kérastase Soleil Masque UV Défense Active Anti-Damage Concentrate – is fabulous. Depending on hair type and length, less is more when it comes to this splendid product.
