Hair says a lot about a woman, and all the yearlong trims, colours and time spent brushing could be completely useless after a summer spent between sun, sea and chlorine! Swide selects five hair treatments that will maintain your hair soft, glossy and smooth as though you’ve just left the salon.
While the summer sun tans your skin and makes you feel great, it does the opposite for your hair. The rays will discolour, dry and stress your locks so highly nourishing and protective treatments will ensure that your hair looks as good as your tan.
This product is just right for those who spend a lot of time in the sun, and a lot of time at the hairdresser getting those highlights just right. The intense, cuticle-enriching conditioning, colour-protecting UV filters and frizz-taming bio-polymers supercharge this masque. The product is light, so it does not weigh down hair but the active ingredients are heavy duty and your knight in shining armour. Wild mango butter and keratin protect and condition hair as well as protect it from the damaging UV rays. Massage into your hair and keep in hair for as long as you need.
Frederic Fekkai, hair guru, has widened his selection of potent and luxurious hair products to include an entire line of sun specific products. From glam beach hair to silky soft post beach hair, Fekkai has thought of everything. A deeply conditioning After Sun Daily Mask which revitalises sun parched hair. A Smooth Sailing Anti Frizz Cream which will leave hair soft and manageable on and off the beach. While for a sexy surf tousled waves, Beach Waves will create that perfect look and its enhanced with Oceanic Cooling Complex to provide a refreshing experience. And last but not least the Cooling Shine Mist, a beach bag must have. Spray on hair at any time of the day and your scalp will feel refreshed, your hair will shine and be protected by the UV rays.
This all natural mask is formulated for dehydrated, under-nourished, and damaged hair, our reparative masque provides intense conditioning, helping to repair severely weakened hair fibres by restoring its moisture content. The formula is enriched with avocado oil, lemon extract, and olive fruit oil, and inspired by traditional home recipes, to create a deeply nourishing treatment that moisturizes and strengthens hair as it restores shine and a healthy appearance to even severely parched hair. Leave in hair for as long as you want to restore your natural shine and texture after a long hard day at the beach.
The detangling, softening, protecting and beautifying oil by Leonor Greyl is a hair super hero for sun damaged locks. The oil works as a mask and it should be applied on dry hair and brushed though the lengths. The botanical elements are natural and smell gorgeous. The product can be left on for as long as you like, even all night long. The Huile the Palm will help protect against the damaging agents in chlorine and seawater as well as from UV rays. Reapply after 3 or 4 immersions in water.
Ojon hair treatments derive from a nut from the eponymous Ojon tree found in the rainforests of Central America. The use of this veritable elixir is a 500 year old practice. Ojon oil helps to restore radiance, suppleness, bounce, body, volume and vibrancy to most damaged hair. The Damage Reverse Restorative Hair Treatment is rich in Ojon oil and works wonders in just one sitting. The balm can be used as an overnight treatment in extreme cases.
