Hair Care Essentials for Your Holiday Getaway

Healthy Holiday Hair Care Tips

Planning a summer holiday is an exciting time, but amid all the holiday preparations, it's important not to forget your hair. Sunshine, chlorine, and saltwater exposure can wreak havoc on your locks, leaving them dry, dull, and damaged. At McGills Hairdressing in Edinburgh, we understand the significance of maintaining healthy hair even while on holiday. We share tips to keep your hair looking great during your holidays and beyond...

Protect Your Hair From Chlorine

Soak Your Hair Before Taking The Plunge

Before taking a dip in the pool, dampen your hair with fresh, chlorine free water. Saturating your strands with clean water creates a barrier, minimising the absorption of chlorine. Just like a sponge, hair tends to absorb liquids it comes into contact with, making saturating your hair first an effective protective measure.

Apply a Protective Treatment

To safeguard your hair from chlorine damage, consider using a pre-swim treatment. Davines offers a fantastic option – Davines SU Hair Milk. This lightweight leave-in spray acts as a protective shield, preventing chlorine and saltwater damage while providing essential moisture and nourishment to your hair.

Protect Your Hair With a Swimming Cap

While swim caps may not be the most fashionable choice, they are highly effective in shielding your hair from chlorine exposure. Invest in a high-quality swim cap that fits well to create a barrier between your hair and the pool water, ensuring its protection.

Rinse Your Hair Immediately After Swimming

After swimming, promptly rinse your hair with clean water. This step helps remove any residual chlorine, reducing the potential for damage. Follow up with a replenishing shampoo and conditioner, such as Davines' NOUNOU Shampoo and Conditioner, to restore moisture and maintain your hair's health.

The Best Davines Products for Holiday Hair Care

Protect Your Hair from Sun Damage

Sun exposure can leave your hair dry, brittle, and faded. Shield it from harmful UV rays with Davines' SU Hair and Body Wash. This versatile product not only cleanses and hydrates your hair but also provides UV protection, ensuring its health and vibrancy throughout your holiday.

Restore Moisture Into Your Hair

Saltwater and sun exposure can leave your hair feeling parched. Combat this by using Davines' SU Hair Mask, a deeply nourishing treatment that replenishes hydration and nourishes your hair. Treat yourself to this luxurious mask once a week to give your hair the pampering it deserves.

Enhance Shine and Tame Frizz

Humidity often leads to unruly frizz, making it challenging to maintain sleek and polished hair on vacation. Davines' This Is An Invisible Serum is a lightweight and non-greasy formula that effectively tames frizz, adds a healthy gloss, and provides heat protection. Apply a small amount to your hair before styling to keep it smooth and manageable, regardless of the climate.
