While we look forward to our summer holidays, we aren’t looking forward to seeing some serious summer hair damage. It is unfortunate that some of our holiday habits can result in common summer hair problems, caused when we don’t protect hair from the sun, protect hair from heat or protect your hair from chlorine.

Fortunately, our hair stylists at Smith & Smith Hair Salon in Loughborough are available to help you take care of hair in summer. Continue reading for summer hair care tips from top hair stylists in Loughborough……..

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

Frizzy hair is a common summer hair problem we see year after year! We are always asked the question “How do I prevent frizz in the summer heat and humidity?”. Before you can have frizz-free hair, it is important to understand why frizz occurs! Frizzy hair is caused by a lack of moisture at the roots of the hair, which is very common on hot summer days. To prevent frizz, you need to hydrate your hair.

Our stylists are trained to analyse your hair’s needs. We can then offer luxury hair treatments  such as a Awapuhi Wild Ginger Treatment. Awapuhi extract replenishes every strand of hair with intense moisture and shine. Keratriplex, an exclusive blend of keratin protein, rebuilds and repairs to transform lacklustre hair.

Protect Your Hair from Chlorine Damage 

Before diving into a swimming pool this summer, make sure your hair is well protected against the disastrous effects of chlorine. Chlorine can cause your hair to be dry and more susceptible to breakage and is well known to fade hair colour (or even turn it 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, many high street stores sell fashionable floral hair coverings now – so you needn’t sacrifice fashion for function! We also advise using a chlorine-removing shampoo to wash your hair after exposing it to chlorine.

Protect Hair from Heat Damage

Strong summer heat can make hair dry and prone to breakage. To ensure your hair stay’s at its maximum health, use a good heat protection spray and only patronise hair products with UV protection.

Wearing a hat in the sunshine also works, but if hats aren’t your thing you can always put your hair into a cool upstyle or wear a silk headscarf to keep it neat and tidy.

How to Prevent Your Hair Colour From Fading in Summer 

Your coloured hair can fade in the sun, so to prevent this, use shampoos and conditioners that are friendly to your hair colour. If you are colouring your hair before going on holiday, visit our hair salon in Loughborough for a OLAPLEX treatment. Ensure exceptional hair quality after lightening, colour and texture services with OLAPLEX which will protect and strengthen your hair.
