Three tips to protect your hair this summer with Schwarzkopf

Whilst everyone (I hope) knows about the importance of protecting your skin from the sun (check out my sun care edit here) – many of us neglect our hair. We all love the sunshine and the burst of energy we get from the vitamin D. If we’re not careful though, the sunlight can really damage our hair, leaving it dry and brittle. The UVB can penetrate the hair cuticle fading colour and weakening the hair, whilst exposure to UVA can damage our natural vibrancy! Don’t despair though! The good news is that it’s actually really easy to protect your hair from the sun, with these easy tips and products from Schwarzkopf.

Tip #1 – Wash Your Hair
It’s really easy to get lost in the moment on holiday and leave your hair dirty after a quick dip in the pool. However, it’s really important to wash and shampoo your hair after swimming in the pool. This allows you to get rid of the chemicals that will be building up on your hair. If you leave products like chlorine in your locks, you can find that your hair turns green or breaks easier. 

Tip #2 – Top Up Your Sun Protection
Every time you top up your suncream, you should be considering topping up your hair protection too! A product like the Schwarzkopf BC Sun Protect Shimmer Oil* protects your protects sun-stressed hair and scalp against damaging UV radiation, free radicals and colour fading. It’s waterproof and you can apply it before and during sun-bathing – it even contains shine particles and makes the hair look shiny. 

Tip #3 – Treat Your Hair
If you’re anything like me, the first thing you do when you get home from the beach is dench your body in after sun and you should do the same for your hair! Take the time to treat your towel-dried hair to a conditioning treatment, as a little bit of post-sun indulgence. Apply a hair mask for 5-10 minutes before rinsing it out, leaving your hair shiny and soft! 

If you’re looking for a handy set that will keep your hair looking great this summer, Schwarzkopf have a handy travel set. Each of Schwarzkopf sun protect products provide protection against: UVA & UVB rays, free radicals and colour fade. Which means you can be sure that your hair leaves your exotic destination looking as good as when you arrived. Each of the products includes Mono├» Oil de Tahiti (which nourishes and soothes sun damaged hair), Vitamin E (an antioxidant to fight against aging free radicals), Colour Fade Protection from UV filters (to keep vibrancy of colour treated hair) and Amino Cell Rebuild Technology (which penetrates deeply into the hair and repairs the inner structure).

The Schwarzkopf BC Sun Protect Travel Set* (£20.95 here) features three 100ml protects all rolled into a handy bag, which makes it the perfect summer kit! Inside the bag (which you can reuse for your bikini) you will find the BC Sun Protect Shampoo, the Spray Conditioner and the Shimmer Oil. The Schwarzkopf BC Sun Protect Shampoo is perfect for daily hair washing, both before and after sunbathing. The sun protect shampoo clarifies the hair of salt, sand and chlorine residues. The Schwarzkopf BC Sun Protect Shimmer Oil is the beautiful oil I mentioned earlier in the post and the Schwarzkopf BC Sun Protect Spray Conditioner gently detangles and moisturises sun-stressed hair. 
I’m loving the Schwarzkopf BC Sun Protect Travel Set and it’s all ready for my sabbatical later this month! You can pick it up for £20.95 here from Escentual. If you have any other tips for keeping your hair in good condition this summer, I’d love to hear about them in the comments below!
