Our best tips for reviving your hair after exposure to the elements.
We love summer: warm days, balmy nights, the ocean and endless sunshine. Unfortunately, harsh UV rays from the sun, chlorine and saltwater can have damaging affects on your locks. If you’re in need of some serious hair damage control after your summer holidays, keep reading.
Before heading out into the sun, you should treat your hair the same way you treat your skin. Kerastase Soleil Micro Voile Protecteur spray is just like suncream for your hair and will defend your hair from harsh UV rays RRP$45.00. Another option is the Kerastase CC Crème – it’s a great all-round product that protects, nourishes and illuminates. RRP $45.00
Make sure you are using the right hair care for your hair type and lifestyle. If you are out in the sun a lot and swim regularly, the Kerastase Soleil Collection is an excellent choice. We especially love the Soleil UV Defense Active masque to protect and care for hair that has been exposed to the elements. RRP$60.00
Keeping your hair nourished is important, and getting regular in-salon treatments will keep your hair healthy and hydrated. We recommend coming in for a treatment every 8-10 washes, or if your hair is particularly damaged, a weekly treatment may be necessary. Ask your hairdresser about Kerastase Fusio Dose treatments, which can be prescribed for your specific hair needs and applied at the basin.Vicky, editor of The Fashion Catalyst, says
‘Fusio Dose is liquid gold. My hair looks and feels amazing after regular treatments in-salon’. Fusio dose treatments start at just $39.50.
Repairing your ends after damage can be helped with regular treatments, but we love the Shu Uemura Ultimate Remedy Range for intense repair at home. The collection includes a serum which can be applied to your hair before heat styling and will help seal and repair damaged ends. Model and blogger Agatha Witchert says ‘ Im obsessed with this product. The smell, the feel – it’s so lightweight yet so deeply nourishing! My once-damaged locks now look and feel amazing’. Collection starts at RRP$48.00.
