Dry hair isn’t just a summer phenomenon but sunshine can leach colour from your locks as well as dry it out. While wearing a special UV protectant for hair can help reduce colour fade, you really need to be doing an intensive conditioning mask to keep dryness at bay at least once a week. Colour fade can be a good thing of course – beautiful highlights appear and of course there is nothing like the sun for showing off gorgeous, shiny locks as it catches every glint of shimmer and light. I like Phytojoba Intense Hydrating Mask for giving glass-like shine to hair and of course giving it the feel and look of healthy, manageable locks. One of the best things about this mask is that it leaves your hair fragranced with summery sweet orange just adding to the feeling-good-about-my-hair moment! Alterna’s Bamboo Smooth Pure Treatment comes with a built-in UV protectant as well as knocking any frizz into touch (useful for those inevitable high humidity days when hair just will not behave).
