Top tips for healthy summer hair

Make the most of the sunshine with our top tips for keeping hair healthy as we enjoy the summer sun.

Sometimes it's always good to just get back to basics and this is especially true when adopting a hair care regime. Book a consultation with your stylist to determine the best products for your hair type and texture.

As with skincare, hair care needs to include a good moisturiser. Therefore a moisturising shampoo and conditioner will offer protection against the damaging and drying effects of sun exposure. Finishing products, like Sebastian Professional's Dark Oil, offer the added bonus of UV protection.

There is nothing like a refreshing dip in the pool. However, chlorine in swimming pools do not offer the same refreshing benefits for your hair. Use a normalising shampoo, such as Matrix Biolage's Normalizing Clean Reset, to get rid of any chlorine build-up.

Swim caps offer the added protection from the damaging effects of chlorine, especially when you have highlights. If you are shy about wearing one, just remind yourself that Olympic swimmers wear them! 

Salon hair care maintenance is often neglected, but to keep hair looking healthy requires a deep conditioning treatment and a trim of dry ends every six weeks.

Whether you are planning a sunny holiday abroad or just lounging in the sunshine at home, ask your stylist at Cococheno about our complimentary in-salon treatments when you have your next cut and blowdry.
