Holiday season is here! I love the sun and everything that comes along with it, but it can wreak havoc on your hair. Don’t let bad hair cramp your holiday style - follow my guide to healthy holiday hair.
Hair Type: Damaged Hair
Top Tips: Preparation is key here. Make sure you blowdry your hair in the evening, when the temperature has cooled, ready for the next day. This is the perfect time to add plenty of moisture and hydration. Applying leave in products can help provide extra nourishment.
In your suitcase: Think nourishment – moisturising products are the way to go to keep your hair healthy and protected. Moisturising and protein based shampoos and conditioners will help pump nourishment and condition into your hair. I would opt for the Pureology Hydrate range
Hair Type: Curly/Frizzy Hair
Top Tips: Make sure you don’t over-dry your hair and keep it salt-free and hydrated. A leave-in conditioner is a must.
In your suitcase: Product really is key with this hair type. A hydrating conditioner will help keep hair nourished and keep dryness and frizz in check. To achieve the perfect curl make sure to use a diffuser paired with a curling cream, such as Moroccanoil Intense Curl Cream, to keep the hair hydrated.
Hair type: Coloured Hair
Concern: Colour fade
Top Tips: Always remember to be extra careful with coloured hair in the sun as it can be easily damaged and the colour will fade quicker. Make sure you don’t over wash or over dry and invest in colour protecting products to extend the longevity of your colour.
In your suitcase: A sulphate free shampoo is best to maintain colour. If you have blonde tones, L’Oreal Silver Shampoo is a must to help prevent your blonde from becoming brassy and too golden.
Hair type: Blonde hair
Top Tips: Heat protection is so important for maintaining condition during a day in the sun. You’ll also want to make sure you’re using a deeply nourishing mask overnight as often as possible. Make sure to avoid using too much additional heat on your hair and air-dry where possible.
In your suitcase: I always make sure to take Kérastase Nutritive Masquintense with me. It’s a great idea to dampen your hair and apply this masque before you hit the beach. Just tie your hair back and allow your hair to reap the benefits and reduce potential damage.
