We all enjoy having fun in the sunshine, but the summer sun can also leave your hair looking and feeling dry and dull.  With these top tips by the experts at Martin and Phelps Hair Salon in Cheltenham, you can keep your hair in tip-top condition, so it can stand up to the heat of the summer months.  

Have A Regular Trim at Martin and Phelps Hair Salon in Cheltenham

Make sure you book in with your Martin and Phelps hair stylist for regular trims to keep your hair looking healthy over the summer and to keep those split ends at bay. Dry hair can easily break with split ends and, if not checked regularly, split ends can travel up the shaft of the hair and cause even more damage.

Protect Your Hair From The Sun’s Harsh UV Rays

When you leave the salon with your hair looking and feeling sensational, you’ll want to make sure you keep it that way.  If you’re heading somewhere hot for your summer holidays or looking forward to a staycation, make sure you protect your hair from the UV rays. Consider wearing a hat or a scarf to protect your locks from the sun and invest in a hair serum or spray with UV protection.

Avoid Chlorine & Salt Water

If you are plunging into the pool or sea this summer, try wetting your hair under the shower first so that it absorbs less salt water or chlorine. Chlorine and salt will dry out your hair which causes breakage and split ends. Plus, chlorine can turn your blonde hair an unpleasant shade of green, so too much chlorine contact is to be avoided.

Use a Leave-In Conditioner

Once out of the pool or sea, wash your hair again using a professional quality shampoo and conditioner. Ask your Martin and Phelps stylist for advice on the best products for your hair. You can even leave your conditioner in to give your hair an extra boost of moisture… just style your hair into a cool slicked-back look!
