What’s summer without trips to the beach and lazy days at the pool? And wouldn’t it be great if you didn’t have to worry about haircare while trying to protect your skin at the same time? We often forget that our hair is just as important as our skin, and elements like sun, chlorine and salt water tend to leave our hair brittle and discoloured.

The number-one recommendation for healthy hair against harsh chemicals or dehydration from the ocean is to condition extensively.

If there was ever a time to load on the conditioner, it’s during the summer. Applying some conditioning spray before swimming in the pool or the ocean, can keep your hair from breaking. Another useful tip is to rinse your hair under tap water before dipping in to prevent it from damage, as your hair will soak up the tap water first.

Tip: If you don’t want to lug around a tub of conditioner or a treatment mask, try a conditioning spray that’s easy to carry in your bag.
