Holiday Hair Know How

Exfoliating, moisturising, dry brushing - the list is endless when it comes to getting skin into shape for a holiday, but what about our hair? Hot climates, harmful UV rays and salty sea water can take their toll on tired tresses, so here’s some top tips to prepping and maintaining luscious locks before, during and after your holiday.

Before you go

  • Make time to get your hair trimmed just before you go away. Cutting off the split ends will make it easier to manage and feel much lighter.
  • Treat yourself to a deep conditioning treatment mask in the salon or Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor mask is a quick, purse-friendly alternative and will leave your hair feeling smoother, sleeker and moisturised. 

While you’re there

  • Invest in a good sun protection spray like Kerastase’s Micro Voile Protecteur spray, and apply like you would sun cream. Use before and after you go into the sun, and after swimming if you get your hair wet.
  • Braiding hair for the beach can make it easier to manage, especially if you’re swimming in the sea. A top knot is perfect for a quick fix (snag-free elastics by Blax are ideal for this hair idea).
  • Hair oils have made a big come back this summer, and are great for restoring moisture and taming frizz in the evenings after washing. MoroccanOil comes in a handy travel size bottle too.
