We all love summer, the brighter days, the sun kissed tan, the pretty outfits, and the way everyone seems so much happier in the sun! But one thing that we don't enjoy about summer is the hair damage that can come with it. Too much exposure to the sun, salty seas or chemically rich swimming pools can really damage your cuticles, leaving your hair dry, brittle, discoloured, broken, frizzy and even thinning.
The best way to deal with this damage is of course to visit the salon and get a trim and an intensive hair treatment, like the Wella Superboost & Conditioning Treatments we offer at the salon. However we have put together a list of our favourite products to help smooth and tame your sun damaged hair until your next appointment. Here are our Top 5 hair products for damaged hair!
5. Wella Professionals Enrich Shampoo and Conditioner
Healthy hair starts with how it's washed and conditioned. Sun-damaged hair is desperate for moisture and hydration, with this in mind, opt for a shampoo and conditioner containing moisturising properties. We really love the Wella Professionals Enrich Shampoo and Conditioner, which contains shea butter, natural silk extract as well as other moisturising ingredients. Your hair will feel rehydrated, nourished and healthier after each use!
