The advice you need to know before the heat hits your hair.
When the weather changes, so does our hair and it’s needs. As we move into the warmer months, our hair is more prone to UV exposure, chlorine and over-washing and can become dehydrated, dull and damaged.
We’ve put together our top tips to protect, nourish and care for your hair throughout the summer months.
Repair winter hair.
Warmer weather means more exposure to the sun, sea and heat styling tools that tend to damage hair over time. Repair your hair by infusing moisture into damaged and sun lightened ends to avoid. The most restorative product on the market is the new Shu Uemura Ultimate Remedy collection – it’s a must for nourishing your hair without weighing it down.

When our hair becomes damaged, the cuticle becomes misaligned. This scatters light in different angles and makes your hair appear dull and lifeless. Use a deep conditioning masque regularly at home to repair, nourish and boost shine. Finish with a gloss spray or serum for added nourishment and lustre.

Protect and prime to beat breakage.
When your hair gets overheated it becomes damaged, dull and frizzy. Heat from styling tools, like your hairdryer and styling iron, can strip moisture and damage your locks. It’s essential to remember to protect your hair before styling by using a heat protectant.

Opt for a healthier alternative.
The SteamPod not only straightens your hair, but unlike other styling tools, it uses steam technology to visibly repair hair and create exceptional smoothness and shine. The Steampod is far less damaging than a standard styling iron and can be experienced in salon for the price of a blowdry, or purchased to take home.
The L’Oreal SteamPod RRP $270
Just like your skin, your hair needs to be kept healthy and hydrated to avoid it becoming dull, dry and damaged. Regular in-salon treatments and using a nourishing masque at home will help keep your locks hydrated. One of the best products to get moisture and shine back into your hair is Kérastase Touche Perfection; keep a tube in your handbag or on your desk at work to run through your lengths and ends throughout the day. You’ll notice a big improvement in the condition of your hair in as little as 2 weeks.
Kerastase Touch Perfection RRP $45.50
Slip Slop Slap: The ultimate sun protection.
Just like your skin needs UV protection from the sun, so does your hair. The Kerastase Soleil range has been designed to protect your hair from the damaging effects of UV exposure, chlorine and salt water. The collection’s Aqual Seal Spray acts just like sun cream does – so be sure to give your hair a spray before you step out into the sun.
