“Over the sum­mer months, as the hu­mid­ity gets higher and UV rays be­come stronger, your hair will be­come de­hy­drated,” says Ken O’rourke, Charles Wor­thing­ton brand am­bas­sador. “Air con­di­tion­ing is also an­other cul­prit, as it sucks out the mois­ture.”


“Good hair, like good skin, is all about how you care for it. You wouldn’t wash your face and not ap­ply a face cream after­wards, so try to get into the same habit with your hair. Keep­ing hair prop­erly mois­turised will stop it be­com­ing dull and life­less. Seal­ing your ends with a hair oil post-wash­ing will lock in the mois­ture needed to keep locks deeply hy­drated.”


“Hair can be dam­aged in a num­ber of dif­fer­ent ways,” says Ken. “Firstly, ex­tended sun ex­po­sure can break down the nat­u­ral pro­teins, mak­ing it dull, life­less and caus­ing the tips to split. Chlo­rine is also a killer, as it strips away the nat­u­ral oils that pro­tect your hair.”


“A trim at the hair­dressers is a good way to get rid of split ends. Also, us­ing a con­struc­tive pro­tein cream is a must for post-sum­mer hair, as it will re­pair it from the in­side out, while restor­ing cu­ti­cles to their orig­i­nal state.”


“Spend­ing a lot of time in the sun, in the pool or out­doors in gen­eral can cause havoc with your hair colour,” says Ken. “You can in­stantly tell when your colour is fad­ing, as you will see a lack of nat­u­ral shine and vi­brancy.’


“Head to your lo­cal salon for a colour re­fresh or a deep­nour­ish­ing treat­ment. Or, for at-home care, use a colour-spe­cific sham­poo and con­di­tioner. Also, try to use cool water rinses as op­posed to warm ones. This will keep cu­ti­cles closed and help to slow down fad­ing.”
