Your Summer Hair Problems... Solved!

Hello Sunshine! The long hot summer days are just perfect for heading to the beach, camping outdoors, eating gelato and drinking cocktails on roof terraces. The downside of summer is that the forecast is not so great for your hair. The humidity can cause frizzy hair nightmares, and the mix of UV rays, sun, salt water, chlorine, and sand can leave you with dry, damaged, weak strands. Want to fix your hair and get smooth, sleek locks? Check out these simple hair care tips for summer...

My hair always goes frizzy in summer! How can I stop this happening? 

Frizz occurs in humid weather because moisture causes a raised cuticle layer. You can take steps to prevent the effect of humidity on frizz with the right combination of styling products and care. The first step is to prime your hair. A product like Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm will keep your locks frizz-free and will defend against humidity for up to 72 hours. It works as an excellent foundation for your hair and smoothes and seals the hair ready for any other styling products. Just a few drops applied through your strands will set you on the path to 3 blissful frizz-free days. Prevention is always better than a cure after all.

I'm off on vacation. How can I protect my hair from the sun, sea, and sand?

Ready to hit the beach or the pool this summer? Will you swim, paddleboard or surf? Sun, chlorine and saltwater can all take a toll on your hair. The sunlight can zap moisture and chlorine can strip colour from your strands. Before hopping in the deep blue, take a minute to drench your hair with fresh water and then protect your strands by applying Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Cleanse & Nourish. This natural marvel will protect your hair whatever activities you choose.
