If protecting your skin from the sunlight is a standard, then why isn’t it the same for hair? Here are our tips on what to do!
In the summer our hair is more exposed to the sunlight and all of the typical elements of vacations: salt water, chlorine, intense heat, wind or sand. Protecting our hair when we are on holidays is crucial, to prevent it from going dull, dry and brittle when we get back home. So let’s see how you can care for your hair in the summer: from the sea to the pool, but also if you go hiking in the mountains.
Immediately wash your hair after swimming in the sea or pool! As soon as you can, rinse your hair well with fresh water. Try a gentle product, preferably specifically after-sun, such as SU Hair & Body Wash. In addition to gently eliminating salt, chlorine and sand, it offers an antioxidant action and soothes the effects of exposure to the sun, leaving hair moisturised and soft.
Using a single product for hair and body is convenient, especially when you need to limit the amount of stuff you pack. If you have only a minimal amount of space, try our kit with two travel sizes from the SU line.
Taking care of your hair during the holidays guarantees you will get back to work looking splendid and radiant. So here is some more advice on how to maintain the beauty of your hair.
Once or twice a week apply a regenerating mask that revitalises hair that has been stressed by the sun, salt water and chlorine, detangling it and restoring softness and shine. We recommend our SU Hair Maskwhich also offers a refreshing, antioxidant effect.
When you have washed your hair, always use a gentle approach: do not wring your hair by pulling or rubbing with the towel. Let your hair dry naturally as much as possible and avoid using hair straighteners or dryers or, at very least, adjust the temperature to the lowest level.
Care for your hair even if the sky is cloudy: the UV rays get through just the same. Wear a straw hat, a scarf or a bandana to protect your scalp: click below to discover 4 hairstyles for the summer!
