Suns out, its Summer haircare time!Monday, December 10 2018
This summer its time to embrace the beach hair, soak up some vitamin D, dive into the salt water and wash away 2018. The upside to beach hair is well documented: sun-kissed highlights, salty crunchy texture, the cool-girl waves that come from doing absolutely nothing but laying in the sand and sun. But what about the downside?
After a year of haircare and appointments to get the perfect colour or cut its important that while your on holiday, your hair is too. Amp up the hydration and treatments while by the pool or lounging at home. Here are our top 5 tips for #summer haircare:
GET BETTER BEDHEAD
Knots can lead to splitting and breakage, which may explain why your hair seems to stop growing at a certain point. To avoid tangles and help each strand reach its full potential we recommend using a silk pillowcase, as cotton pulls at the hair while you sleep. We LOVE slip pillow cases and eye masks for travel and for home. Available in the salon in 7 colour combos.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again there is nothing we like more than a treatment especially after a big week at the beach. Take a little luxury away with you from Original & Mineral and Davines:
Davines’s circle treatments: *The Quick Fix* is like a morning coffee for your hair. It hydrates and detangles hair in only 3 minutes, making it soft, silky and manageable. The perfect hair mask for all hair types, your hair will be left with added shine, volume and hydration.

Both treatments come in travel sizes perfect for your beach holiday or overseas adventure this Christmas.
GIVE THE HEAT A REST
It’s no secret that heat styling is bad for your hair and excessive heat can do serious DAMAGE to your locks. The summertime is ideal for air-drying hair to reveal its natural texture but we know its hard to avoid heat styling completely. We recommend you pick your battles, if you’re spending the weekend at home why not towel or air dry? If you have to use your curling iron or straightener everyday lower the heat and use products that protect against the heat.
Just like keeping your skin and body hydrated in summer it is also important to hydrate and moisturise your hair. Using a protective products against salt, sun and chlorine is especially important at this time of year. We love using products from Original & Mineral at this time of year because they are made from natural Australian ingredients, Know Knott Detangling Spray and Surf Bomb are always in our beach bag.
EMBRACE THE BEACH GIRL LIFESTYLE
Frequent washing strips your scalp of its natural oils, which in turn stimulates additional oil production and makes you feel the need to wash it even more. When it does come time to wash your salty locks ensure to condition well, your dehydrated locks will thank you.
Hair scarfs are our summer must have:
The scarf-bun combination is about to be the biggest hit of summer. Wrap your scarf around your your tied bun or hook the hair scarf into your hair tie before doing your bun. If you want to keep the tails long or voluminous, only wrap your scarf around your bun once and tie, but if you’d prefer to keep the tails short, keep wrapping and tie when you’re happy with the length.
