In the summer, our hair is more exposed to sunlight (yes, even in the UK!) as well as harming elements like: salt water, chlorine, intense heat, wind or sand. Protecting our hair whether we're at home, away or on a stay-cation, is crucial to prevent it from becoming dull, dry and brittle. Read on to find our expert summer hair care tips for whether you'll be in the sea or pool, or exploring in the countryside or city.
Try to rinse or wash your hair straight after swimming in the sea or pool with fresh, clean water. Use a gentle cleansing, moisturising formulalike SU Hair & Body Wash (this product is 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.

Our tips on maintaining moisturised, healthy hair:
Once or twice a week, apply a regenerative mask that helps revitalise hair after stress caused by sun, salt water and chlorine exposure, detangling it and restoring softness and shine. OurSU Hair Maskwill help refresh and provides antioxidant action.
After washing hair, treat strands with care: avoid wringing your hair or rubbing roughly with a towel. Try using 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!
