When you are relaxing on the beach or by the pool all day, the condition of your hair can suffer greatly, leaving you with dry and damaged hair. Salt and chlorine can sap the moisture out of your hair causing it to become fragile and brittle, while the sun’s rays will also damage the structure of the hair. While you may like looking like you just stepped out of the sea rather than a salon, your hair will deteriorate even over the course of a two week holiday.
Of course, prevention is always a better approach than trying to repair damage. You can find sunscreens designed to offer protection to your hair while you are away but you can just as easily protect your hair (and your face) by wearing a hat!
It is also essential to gently remove salt, sand, chlorine and sunscreen from your hair at the end of each sunbathing or swimming session. Use a mild but effective shampoo like Dermalogica’s daily use Shine Therapy Shampoo to cleanse the hair without further stripping it of essential moisture and make sure you follow each wash with a nourishing conditioner such as Silk Finish Conditioner.
Your hair will look and feel silky, shiny and restored to its former glory!
