Summer is here and there’s nothing more I love to do then head to the beach or lay around poolside – okay, now I’m getting carried away. There is no lying around poolside with my two year old son 😏😉
There are a few essential items I like to carry with me in my beach bag, the most important of which are sunblock, beach towels, water, snacks. There is also is a very important hair care product tucked away in there also – that is hair sunscreen. Most are easy to apply, just spritz it on throughout the day. This will help your hair from becoming brittle and dry, and also help colour from fading.
Here are a few to try that won’t leave your hair feeling greasy:
When soaking your self in the pool, the last thing you want to do is destroy the beautiful hair colour you just had freshened up for the summer. If your going to go under water these are the tips you need to follow or you will be left with a lovely green tint and can kiss that $$$ beautiful blonde hair goodbye!
- Always pre rinse hair. This will act like a shield and helps slow the absorption of chlorine.
- Use a leave in conditioner or spray in conditioner.
- Oil based or silicone hair products. This will help protect your strands while leaving them hydrated

And great hair treatments and masks for after sun and beach/pool hair care:
Hydrate and protect your hair from the sun just as you would protect your skin. Wear a hat – that will definitely help colour from fading, and most importantly, wrinkles!
Have fun splashing around 😎🍸🌊
