Sun Awareness Week has been focused on raising awareness for protecting yourself and your little ones in the sun. We know how important it is to protect your skin and keep topping up the lotion, but sometimes hair can be forgotten about. Here are the best products to offer your hair the protection it needs in the sunshine.
We love that we can literally use this product all over after having been out in the sun. It removes chlorine, salt and any other products we’ve used throughout the day. It’s perfect for taking on holiday after a day by the pool or the beach. It has moisturising ingredients too, so it doesn’t leave hair feeling dry.
You’ll probably know by now that the sun can wreak havoc with bleached or dyed hair. We love this Philip Kingsley product that acts like a swimcap to protect your locks from salt or chlorine when you’re in the water. It protects your hair from chlorine damage and deeply moisturises, so it feels extra soft after your sunshine-pool sesh.
This hair-styling crème is just incredible – how did people do without it? It’s for those days when you’re skipping the straighteners or having a holiday away from your usual hair routine. What’s more, it’s contains UVA and UVB filters which help to protect against the sun’s rays. If you’re only taking one hair care product on holiday this year, make it Bumble and bumble Don’t Blow It.
This is a product that we love to use all year round. Even in the UK we can experience damage to our hair and skin – regardless of whether it’s hot or not! This L’Occitane mist is great for spraying on your hair just before leaving the house. It offers UV protection and nourishment. It’s made up of five essential oils and smells gorgeous.
We can’t get enough of the NUXE sun collection. This milky hair oil helps to protect your hair and scalp from harmful UV rays, as well as act as a barrier against salt and chlorine damage. It can be used on wet or dry hair. We recommend applying it ten minutes or so before diving into the pool. Team this with the Nuxe Summer Essential Kit which offers pre- and post-sun protection for your skin.
Finally, this Kérastase shampoo is an absolute ‘must’ for after you’ve been out in the sun. It leaves hair feeling lovely and clean after having been in the sea or pool. We also recommend using it before your pool-sesh for added protection. It’s perfect for those who swim on a regular basis and need constant protection against chlorine.
