Well summer is nearly here,  although after last week’s snow I am beginning to wonder – but soaking up the rays on that sun drenched beach is just weeks away.

As well as the factor 20 for our skin (higher for our Celtic skin) how are we protecting our hair in the sun?

Did you know that a week’s sun damage is the equivalent of one year’s unprotected heat damage from hairdryers and straightening irons etc, -scary isn’t it? I can’t stress enough that protecting your hair during sun exposure and then rehydrating and moisturising after sun is key to having beautifully conditioned hair during the summer months.

My top three products from KERASTASE SOLEIL range that are a MUST in your beach bag are AQUA SEAL GEL – apply to your damp hair and get protection from chlorine and salt water – the UV protection will keep out those harmful rays. Wash this off with BAIN APRES SOLEIL -this will give you the perfect balance of cleansing and rehydration and will protect the shine of colour and last,  BUT – and by no means least –MASQUE UV will repair, give deep nourishment and is amazing on colour treated hair.

So there you have it – my top tips – please come and ask any of the team for advice for your perfect holiday hair this summer.
