Keep your hair looking good in the sun We all want to feel we're in 'hottie' mode during the summer months, with life one long, alfresco social whirl. A climatically induced sunny personality, cute clothes and a complexion transformed into a glowing vision Jennifer Lopez might envy are more achievable than usual, but this time of year is not particularly hair-friendly. Even if you're a holiday-phobic workaholic in a city centre, you need to take extra care of locks exposed to negative effects, such as increased levels of UV, pollution and other environmental 'nasties'. So what's a hair-conscious woman to do? Well, there's plenty of help available from boffins willing to take on British Summer Time and win, with formulas containing protective, moisturising and nurturing ingredients for the warmer months. Pantene's limited-edition Pro-V Summer Care Shampoo and Conditioner contain intensive conditioning ingredients that penetrate the cortex of the hair, making it stronger and better able to withstand the assaults of sun, pollution, air-conditioning and humidity. Although it's important that hair is well hydrated in summer, hot weather can encourage oil production, which can be hell for anyone who's locks are greasy at the roots. Frequent shampooing with a mild formulation is probably the best way to tackle this. Spritz a lightweight conditioner through the ends, such as KMS Sol Perfection All-Day Protection Spray (www.kmshaircare.com) or Aussie Miracle Insurance (www.aussie.com) both of which will help protect your crowning glory during lazy lunches outdoors spent people-watching. Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder (www.bumbleandbumble.com) absorbs natural oils and 'adds a day to the life of a style', making it a godsend for dirty stop-outs and slug-a-beds alike. It's available in white (for blondes), red, brown and black. Puff on for a matte texture and instant volume. Celebs such as Kate Moss, Cameron Diaz and Uma Thurman look fantastic in bikini mode, thanks to golden tan and sexy-looking hair Lush Rehab (www.lush.com) is a first-rate deep cleanser with fresh organic fruits to remove product build-up, residues of sweat and city grime from all hair types. Thirsty locks will adore Schwarzkopf Professional Salon Oxygen Capsule Mask (www.schwarzkopf-professional.com), which lightly conditions and rejuvenates without overload. Tame flyaways and intensify blonde locks with Fudge's Defrizz Blonde, (www.fudge.com), a lightweight violet serum. This handbag-friendly multi-tasker also promotes instant shine and helps repair damaged ends. It's important to most of us how we shape up on holiday alongside the 'competition'. Celebs such as Kate Moss, Cameron Diaz and Uma Thurman look fantastic in bikini mode, even in those candid paparazzi shots, thanks to golden tans and sexy-looking hair. Avoid any potential hair 'mares with a trim before you go away to sharpen up your style and minimise the risk of split ends. Have any colour work done well in advance or, even better, after you return, otherwise your expensive tint or highlights will 'lift' in the bright sunshine or, in the case of chemical blondes, may turn greenish on contact with chlorine. Philip Kingsley's Swimcap (www.philipkingsley.co.uk) is a water-resistant cream with UV filters to protect against discolouration. Use mineral water to rinse your hair after every dip in the ocean and a wide-toothed comb to separate each section carefully. Frédéric Fekkai's Detangling Comb is both functional and beautifully crafted. If you're shopping on a budget L'Oréal Elvive Solar Repairing After-Sun Shampoo and Regenerating After-Sun Conditioning Crème contain a new ingredient, hydralium - a unique association of glycerine and silicon - and UV filters to protect, nourish and smooth the surface of sun-damaged hair. Salon professional Matrix Biolage Sunsorials After-Sun Shampoo, Sun Repair Treatment, Protective Hair Oil and Protective Sun Gel, contain advanced UV filters, naturally occurring antioxidants found in sunflower-seed extract, and a botanical complex for shine and detangling. Also worth a look are Wella's Lifetex Nutri-Care Sun range (www.wella.co.uk) and the PhytoPlage collection. If you're in space-saving mode Charles Worthington Suntime Essentials boast a revolutionary UVB-absorbing ingredient. Sun Wash UV-Protection Shampoo, After-Sun Repair UV-Protection Conditioner, Sun Screen UV-Protection Spray and Safe Sun Waterproof UV-Protection Hair Gel The BaByliss PortAbility Slim Ceramic Straightener, or Ceramic Curling Tong & Brush, offer styling flexibility. Both are cordless, powered by a long-lasting, high-heat, gas energy cell and come with a protective heat shield for quick and safe storage www.babyliss.co.uk Article taken from Handbag.com <!-- / message --><!-- sig -->
