Summer haircare heroes

Summer Haircare Heroes, Urban Retreat

Keep your hair in the best condition during your summer holiday with our tips on how to care for your hair in the sun.

Spitz a sunscreen on your hair

UV rays dehydrate your hair. This may seem like a good thing for those with greasy hair, but it's a disaster for hair that's already dry. We recommend using Colour Fanatic Multi-Taking Hair Beautifier from Pureology that contains UVA/UVB Sunscreens and Instantly Detangles & Controls Frizz perfect for beach tousled hair minus the frizz.

Use a Tangle Teezer on wet hair

Wet hair is more fragile It's lovely to spend summer days at the pool or seaside, but if you're constantly in and out of the water you need to be careful. We love to use a tangle teezer which you can use on use wet or dry hair. It’s the perfect brush if you suffer from tangled hair.

Avoid damaging you hair by over washing

Get sand and salt out of your hair by using a gentle shampoo we love to use the weekender Shampoo from Unite with its blend of citrus and mandarin orange, the shampoo will deep cleanse your hair without removing its natural oils.

Use a primer to keep your style

Our favourite is the Wonder Worker from Shu Uemura: A few spritzes and your hair is smooth, and detangle free. It also adds impressive shine and is the perfect heat protector from the hot summer air.

Deep condition your hair

The heat of the sun can really dry out your hair so we love to use the Redken All Soft Heavy Cream which is an intense conditioning treatment that is worth its weight in gold. Targeted at extremely dry or brittle hair Redken All Soft Heavy Cream intensely nourishes and conditions leaving you with beautifully soft and touchable hair.
