Chlorine can dry out your hair which increases which make is prone to breaking.  It can also react with your hair colour, which might lead to it turning it a slightly greenish shade – not a good look.  

The solution?  If you don’t want to try wearing a swimming cap then try a specialist shampoo.   We recommend  Kérastase Bain Apres Soleil which is enriched with coconut water to gently remove chlorine as well as salt and sand residues, to cleanse the hair of their drying effects.   Hair is hydrated throughout its length for instantly refreshed, luminous and smooth locks.

Prevent Hair Colour Fade

Coloured hair can fade in the sun so use a colour protecting shampoo and conditioner to prevent this from happening and ensure your locks are prepared for the sun with a UV protector such as Kérastase Creme UV Sublime.  This lightweight leave-in cream is designed to give your hair long-term shine and smoothness as well as preventing damage from the sun’s UV rays.  An application is the perfect way to keep your hair looking great all summer long.  Just remember to apply before and during sun exposure for best results.

To be extra safe, always remember to wear a hat on a hot summer’s day – protective and stylish!

Frizzy hair can be an irritating problem in the summer, with the heat and humidity turning your sleek hairstyle into a frizzy mess the moment you step out of the door!

To avoid this, you need to put the moisture back into your hair.  Serums and hair oils are the most popular anti-frizz products for summer hair problems.   At Johnson Blythe we recommend Kérastase Masque Apres Soleil, which is a deep recovery mask to replenish your hair’s hydration after harsh sun, sand and salt exposure.  When applied on cleansed hair, it smoothes the hair fibre, making it uniform from root to tip.

Better still, have a professional hair smoothing treatment.  Our L’Oréal Xtenso Moisturist Hair Smoothing treatments will restore your hair, leaving is silky and manageable for up to 60 days.

The summer sun can cause your hair to become dry and prone to breakage.  Use a good heat protection spray and hair products containing UV protection.  We recommend Kérastase Creme UV Sublime or you could try new Kérastase Ciment Thermique, a resurfacing and strengthening blow-dry milk which offers great heat protection.

Of course, wearing a hat in the sunshine is always a great plan, or alternatively you could try tying your hair into a ponytail, plait or bun to keep your hair neat and tidy.
