W e love the sum­mer sun—nothing beats the warmth on your back and the long days. We love the chance to eat and drink out­side, to throw off thick win­ter clothes and wear the min­i­mum pos­si­ble. We love hav­ing the even­ing light way into the night and the fresh, bright, sunny morn­ings. Sum­mer is a won­der­ful time! But, sadly, not all the things we love are so good for our hair. Sum­mer brings with it fol­lic­u­lar chal­lenges and, as we know, what we love does not al­ways suit our tresses. So here are some ideas of ways to give your hair some love this sum­mer.

Sum­mer colour

Con­sider your colour…. at this time we are nor­mally drawn to lighter tresses to re­flect the brighter days and paler clothes. If you have been read­ing Mag­a­zine, then you will al­ready have con­sid­ered whether to take the plunge and go blonde, and that should be well un­der­way. But there is still time to talk to your stylist about whether to lighten your shade a frac­tion to lift your mood.

Sum­mer style

Whether it’s for care­free sum­mer days or stress-free hol­i­days, you will want your hair to be as easy to style and as prob­lem­free as pos­si­ble—you won’t want to be stress­ing about a high- main­te­nance ’do. So talk to your hair­dresser about your styling op­tions; per­haps have some lay­ers cut in to give a more de­fined shape and get that wash and go style, or a short crop if you’ll be in and out of the pool. Cropped styles are par­tic­u­larly good in sum­mer when it shows off our sun­tanned skin on necks and shoul­ders.

Sum­mer prod­ucts

UV pro­tec­tion is as im­por­tant for your hair as for your skin, so choose prod­ucts with this added in­gre­di­ent as it will help pre­vent sun dam­age and tress dis­tress. A good masque once a week, es­pe­cially one with a colour pro­tect el­e­ment, will also help guard against the brit­tle­ness caused by over­ex­po­sure. If you are trav­el­ling to trop­i­cal climes, then anti- hu­mid­ity prod­ucts will be a god­send in help­ing your locks cope with the frizz-mak­ing el­e­ments.

Get ahead… get a hat!

A great sum­mer sta­ple, a good hat will keep the sun out of your eyes and off your hair! Par­tic­u­larly when sun­bathing or sight-see­ing, a hat will pro­tect your head and scalp from those blis­ter­ing rays. Be it a wide-brimmed floppy, a beret or a base­ball cap, a hat could be your hair’s sal­va­tion this sum­mer.
