Is your hair enjoying the sun?

We hope you're busy making the most of this gorgeous summer sunshine and taking care to protect your skin. We wonder whether you're also thinking about how you can best protect your hair?

Why? Because the summer’s heat and humidity can be especially harsh on all hair types. The good news is that there’s lots you can do to keep your hair in great condition and here are some hot summer tips.
Summer hair care is different because chlorine, saltwater, and sunshine bleach our locks and break down the hair’s natural keratin, leaving it lacklustre, dry and prone to breakage. Humidity and sweaty skin can also leave hair lank and difficult to style and control. That’s why it’s particularly important to keep your hair and scalp nourished and in tip top condition at this time of year.

So, what steps can you take to keep your scalp healthy and your hair strong, shiny and growing well?

Hoorah for hats!

Hands down, a hat is one of the easiest ways to keep your hair protected and in great condition – and there’s a style for everyone (some even have a UV protection factor). Just leave your go-to hat by the door and grab it as you head out for instant protection.

Below are some of our favourites of the season; clockwise from top left: Crew Panama Hat £20, Toast Maison NH Paris Raffia Hat £90, John Lewis Striped Crochet Hat £25, Boden Printed Canvas Bucket Hat from £21, Fat Face Ribbon Floppy Sun Hat £28Fat Face Linen Baseball Cap £18.00

Hairfix your holiday!

Our summer go-to is keratin-rich Hairfix Root To Tip Hair Improver. This deep conditioning treatment is formulated to deliver moisture and improve your hair and scalp condition, helping you avoid the nasty dry, bleached, brittle feeling caused by exposure to uv, chlorine and saltwater.

Running a few pumps worth through damp or dry hair before you head into the sun and then to hair that’s been rinsed in fresh water after swimming will help retain your hair’s strength and elasticity, preventing dryness, frizziness and sun damage.

The sun’s rays help activate the silk protein and keratin in this deep moisturising treatment, so that it penetrates the hair more quickly, providing uv protection and silky softness.

Teaming Root To Tip With Hairfix Follicle Max Volume Lifting Mist will give lank hair some extra help by naturally thickening, adding gloss and protecting your hair against heat damage. You’ll discover that your hair is smooth, supple, frizz-free and voluminous once more.

If you want your hair to be healthier, shinier, softer, stronger, smoother, and more resistant to damage, these treatments are for you!

Special offer: We've combined Hairfix Root to Tip Hair Improver 500ml with Hairfix Follicle Max Volume Lifting Mist 150ml to create a special 'Best Ever Summer Hair' set. It costs just £39.00 (RRP £99, so that's a neat saving of £60!)

Five Top Tips for Summer Hair

Ready to take the plunge? Before you swim, totally drench your hair in fresh water. That way the salt and chemicals will become diluted and therefore less damaging.

Play it cool. Try giving your hair a final rinse in cool – even cold – water. The benefits include shinier and less frizzy hair, plus cold water flattens and closes the hair’s cuticles, helping retain moisture and protecting hair from damage. It also closes the scalp pores so that roots are held firmly in place, hair sheds less and blood circulation is improved - great for promoting growth and hair health. You’ll feel revitalised, too!

Hat's on. As we mention above, a hat or scarf is a brilliant way to protect your hair and scalp from sun damage and colour fade.

Hang loose. Summer is a great time to experiment with loose, relaxed styles… messy buns, loose braids and pony tails will keep the hair off your neck so you’ll feel cooler. Use a little Root To Tip on towel dried hair to keep frizz calm and hair moisturised but avoid tight, pulled back styles as they can lead to shedding and breakage.

Keep in trim. You’re more likely to suffer from dry and split ends after time in the sun, so regular trims to chop off frizzy splits and keep your hair looking sharp are a must.

Whatever your summer plans, we wish you happy holidays and happy hair days! Please feel free to email us if you have any hair care questions:
