Your hot weather mane maintenance guide
All that outdoor action you’ve been relishing in summer has been amazing for the soul, but there’s a good chance it hasn’t been the kindest to your tresses. If you want to help keep your hair healthy during summer so you don’t need a complete mane overhaul come autumn, then follow these expert tips from Kérastase’s National Education Manager, Andrea Bryceland.
Target summer-specific issues
“Products that keep your hair nourished and have UV protection to look after your colour are essential. Kérastase’s Reflection Collection is perfect – it has the chelators complex, which minimises the effects of chlorine on your hair and protects colour,” says Bryceland. Try Kérastase Paris Reflection Masque Chromatique.
Protect with SPF formulas
“People spend a lot of money colouring their hair [but] even 10 minutes of sun exposure every day in the middle of summer is enough to cause excessive colour fade,” notes Bryceland, who recommends looking for products that contain UV protection to minimise damage. Try Keune Care Sun Shield Oil.
“As hair is highly sensitive to humidity – becoming dry, dull and difficult to style – nourishment and protection are key to looking after your hair over the summer months,” says Bryceland. Try adding a hair mask or oil treatment into your routine, once a week. Try Kevin.Murphy Young.Again Masque.
