DRINKS GET COOLER
SKIN GETS DARKER
SKIRTS GET SHORTER
MUSIC GETS LOUDER
HAIR GETS FRIED
Hell no!!! No one wants fried hair when their living it up in Ibiza, chilling on a tropical beach in paradise or having friends round for a barbi!! Whatever your plans for the summer keep your hair looking MERMAIZING by following these simple tips and tricks...
1. CUT THE CRAP
Be sure to start your summer fun with a haircut, whether it’s a complete revamp or a simple trim, a summer haircut is a MUST, it will keep your tresses in tip top shape, cutting off all the dry split ends will bring your hair back to life, leaving you looking and feeling good.
2. MASK IT UP
If you don’t already, start investing in a good hair mask. I’m obsessed with LABEL M INTENSIVE REPAIR MASK Use this at least once a week especially if your out in the sun. Wash your hair then leave your hair mask on as long as possible, even overnight if your able to. This will ensure your hair is staying hydrated, your hair needs moisturised just the same as your skin to stop it drying out.
3. SATURATE IT
If your going to be in the pool or the sea coat your hair in a conditioner or coconut oil, this will form a protective layer over your locks that will reduce the risk of chlorine or salty water drying it out. Of course, you don’t want your hair to look all oily, so put a braid in it or tie it in a bun…. No one will even notice😉
4. PUT AWAY THE HOT STUFF
Keep hot styling tools to a minimum!This will cause your hair unnecessary heat damage, not only has your hair been exposed to the sun all day, but then blow-drying and styling with straighteners or a curling tong is frying it further.Instead after you’ve washed your hair apply a nourishing spray or cream I love LABEL M PPROTEIN SPRAY, go pour yourself a cocktail, put some tunes on and sit on the balcony of your hotel letting your hair air dry whilst soaking up the last of the afternoon sun. Once its dried give your hair a little tousle then your good to go au natural….. If you really want to style your hair after its air dried turn down the heat on your tongs or straightener and apply some LABEL M HEAT PROTECTION SPRAY first.
5. KEEP IT COVERED
When you’re out all day in the sun one of the best things you can do is to invest in a hat or head scarf to keep your hair out of direct sun exposure, not only will this stop your ends becoming frazzled it will also stop your scalp from burning.Neither is a good look! When your scalp burns it will become dry and flaky which will then transfer to your hair causing it to become dull and brittle, keeping your hair covered during the day will minimise all of this leaving you with luscious locks to whip around the dancefloor at night.
6. KEEP HYDRATED
You have probably heard this one from your parents on family holidays when you were younger, but I will say it again.Drink plenty of water… this will ensure that your hair scalp and skin will stay well hydrated and believe it or not, will help it grow! When your hair becomes dehydrated it halts the hair growth causing it to split and become dry and brittle. Head out for the day with a bottle of water and keep topping it up. I promise it will make a difference 😊
Follow these simple tips and tricks for MERMAZING hair to complement your new sun kissed skin….. Enjoy the summer folks. Like me, I’m sure its your fave time of year 😉
