Choose The Best Hair Cleansing Products

We tend to wash our hair more in the summer because suntan oils, sweat and styling can make it become greasy and feel clogged and dirty. The heavy detergents in a lot of shampoos can dry out your hair and cause split ends and breaking. Choosing a sulphate free shampoo with cleanse your hair without causing it to become dry. Styling products, for those gorgeous beachy waves and "effortless" top knots can cause a build up of products, a clarifying shampoo or scalp scrub will leave your hair and scalp feeling super clean and refreshed.  

Prevent Hair Colour Fade in Summer

The sun can cause your hair colour to fade so make sure to use Davines MINU range to keep your gorgeous colour looking vibrant. The Davines MINU mask can be used as a weekly deep conditioning treatment to nourish dehydrated colour treated hair. To prevent colour fade, and over heating, cover up your hair whilst in the sun and use an SPF hair product to protect the colour and condition of your locks.

Protect Your Hair from Chlorine

Chlorine in a swimming pool can make your hair incredibly dry, cause havoc with your hair colour and condition. To prevent colour fade or hair breakage caused by chlorine, we recommend wearing a swimming cap in the pool (you can get some fashionable ones on the high street or online!) or invest in a chlorine removing shampoo. Then, once you have returned to your normal routine, book a professional conditioning treatment at our Wimbledon hair salon to inject moisture back to your hair.

Keep Cool This Summer

It is essential to use a good heat protection spray and hair products containing UV protection to protect your hair from the summer sun.
