5 ways to take care of your hair this summer


If protecting your skin from the sunlight is the standard, then why isn’t it the same for hair? Here are our tips on keeping hair healthy and protected in the sun

In the summer our hair is more exposed to sunlight(even in the UK) as well as elements like: salt water, chlorine, intense heat, wind or sand. Protecting our hair whether we're at home, away or on stay-cation, is crucial to prevent it from becoming dull, dry and brittle. Read on for how to care for your hair in the summer: whether in the sea or pool, or rambling in the countryside or city.

Try to rinse or wash hair straight after swimming in the sea or pool with fresh water. Use a gentle cleansing, moisturising formulalike SU Hair & Body Wash (designed for post-sun use). As well as gently eliminating salt, chlorine and sand, it offers an antioxidant action and soothes the effects of sun exposure, leaving hair hydrated and soft.

Using a single product for hair and body is convenient, especially when you need to limit what you pack for a trip away.

After washing hair, treat strands with care: avoid wringing your hair or rubbing roughly with a towel. Try a soft cotton t-shirt instead, gently patting hair to absorb some moisture. Letting hair dry naturally as often as possible and limiting the use of heat tools like straighteners -even using a lower heat setting on your hair drier will help avoid extra stress on your hair!

  • Skip treatments right before going on holiday- IChemical hair treatments like bleaching can weaken and sensitise hair, and sun exposure can effect your colour: instead, book it as a treat for post-holiday.
  • Don't leave your hair down - It's not just a matter of convenience: if you have long hair it can be best to keep it tied up, just not too tightly. Ponytails, buns or braids help defend the scalp from burning and prevent hair from additional damage or tangles.
  • Skip the heat - Give your hair a break from its winter routine, embrace and enhance your natural texture! Hair primersare great leave-in treatments, simply spritz and comb through strands after washing for added protection and hydration while you air-dry.
