Frizzy Hair – Prevent It With A Conditioning Treatment at Smith & Smith Hair Salon in Loughborough

One thing we are always asked about during summer is “how do I prevent my hair from being frizzy?”

Hair becomes frizzy due to a lack of moisture at the roots of the hair, which is very common on hot summer days. To prevent frizz, you simply need to put moisture back into hair, with a hydrating treatment at Smith & Smith Hair Salon.

Our stylists are trained to analyse your hair’s needs, and recommend luxury hair products such as a Awapuhi Wild Ginger Mirror Smooth shampoo & conditioners, which are tailored to restore your hair back to its pre-holiday condition and give it a much-needed boost of moisture.

How To Protect Your Hair From Chlorine Damage

Paul mitchell, Shampoo 3, Smith & Smith, Hair Salon, LoughboroughBefore taking a dive into a cool pool this summer, you need to ensure that your hair is well protected against the damaging effects of chlorine. Chlorine can cause your hair to be dry and more susceptible to breakage and is well known to fade hair colour, even turning blonde hair green!

We advise wearing a swimming cap when in the pool as it is the only way to prevent chlorine in the water from damaging your hair, there are plenty of fashionable swimming caps available on the High Street. We also recommend using a chlorine-removing shampoo such as Paul Mitchell Shampoo Three to wash hair, ask your Smith & Smith stylist for advice on repairing chlorine damaged hair.

How To Prevent Heat Damaged Hair 

Strong summer heat can make hair incredibly dry, and more likely to break. To ensure your hair is in the best condition possible this summer, use a good heat protection spray and only use hair products with UV protection such as 10 in 1 treatment styling cream, a sunscreen cream for your hair. 

You should also consider wearing a hat to protect your hair from the sun, although if this isn’t possible, wearing a top knot hair style could work. Check out our best summer holiday hair trends here.
