Keep your hair on

Fashion Magazine - - A Commercial Profile -

Hair needs as much at­ten­tion in the sum­mer as the rest of you, so don’t for­get about your crown­ing glory. Wear­ing a sun hat will both pro­tect your hair and keep the sun off your face, so in­vest in a stylish one. Go­ing to the beach pro­vides the per­fect ex­cuse for a deep con­di­tion­ing treat­ment which you can leave in your hair and then rinse off later for silky soft locks.

We tend to wash our hair more of­ten in the sum­mer, and you don’t have to break the bank to achieve a great hair day.

Head and Shoul­ders is a good ex­am­ple of this, it was re­cently voted most pop­u­lar with Cos­mopoli­tan mag­a­zine read­ers.

A leave-in con­di­tioner is a great time saver and Bobbi Brown has come up with one in her Beach range ¤15 at Brown Thomas.

Wella’s Sun Vi­ta­min Shake is packed full of good­ness for sum­mer stressed hair. Sim­ply spray on af­ter sham­poo­ing for silky smooth hair with ex­tra shine. ¤10.70 at Wella stock­ists.

The L’Oreal range is full of bright ideas, and their Play­ball Beach Crème is a soft silky cream that give the scrunched beachy ef­fect so pop­u­lar this year. ¤20 at Zeba Hair Salon, South William St, Dublin.

Pan­tene prod­ucts have al­ways done well in the hair sur­veys, and their Pro-V range does not dis­ap­point. Be Sleek Mousse gives both hold and smooth­ness all for ¤5.49.

Bum­ble and Bum­ble are al­ways front run­ners when it comes to set­ting trends, and their Surf Spray gives the per­fect “just back from the beach” look with­out hav­ing to ride the waves. ¤22 at Peter Mark Sa­lons na­tion­wide.

Lux­u­ri­ous shine and an­tiox­i­dant pro­tec­tion is what you can ex­pect from Al­fa­parf’s Semi di Lino Dia­mante, a styling serum which in­cludes pow­dered di­a­monds, no less.
