Does my hair need protecting too?
Absolutely! Many of us have experienced our hair getting lighter after a summer holiday, but the damage does not end there!

It's made using Vitamin E, Ginkgo Biloba, and White Tea, which all help protect the hair against the harmful effects of UV radiation. You spritz this in your hair before and after sun exposure, to achieve long-lasting shine and protection from hair discolouration!
