Summer Special: Haircare
Todays summer feature is all about haircare. Hair tends to need a bit more extra care in the summer as it has a tendency to become drier. Holidays, swimming and the sun can ravage the hair, so by using haircare products specifically aimed at these factors can help hair become more manageable and less straw like ( in my case!). My hair is blonde (from a bottle) and tends to become really dry in the summer. On holidays I tend to avoid getting my hair wet in the swimming pool as it has been known to change colour and get a slight green tinge!
I have been sent some great hair products aimed at protecting hair in the sun. First up is this shampoo and conditioner from the ‘Argania Spinosia’ range at TK Maxx.
The Organic Argan shampoo and conditioner from the Argania Spinosia range are amazing for dry/damaged hair.
Liquid Gold Argan Oil Shampoo
This silky shampoo contains Moroccan Argan oil to help nourish dry and frizzy hair. It certainly left my dry hair shiny and more manageable when combined with the conditioner below. It was also quite light as I have used Argan Oil based shampoos on my fine hair in the past and they have left my hair feeling a little greasy, this one doesn’t.
Organic Argan Oil Supreme Cream Conditioner
This conditioner is made with Moroccan Argan Oil and contains vitamin E. It promises to revitalise and nourish even the driest and unmanageable hair styles. I can certainly vouch for this. My hair is a knotty tangled mess when wet. After using this I could comb through my hair really easily without having to drag the comb like normal. After drying, my hair was very smooth and shiny. It is a really rich consistency but doesn’t weigh the hair down. I would definitely recommend this for dry and over processed hair and it would be a perfect summer hair rescue treatment. It is great value too as the supersize 1 litre bottle retails at just £12.99!
Argania Spinosia Argan Shampoo and Conditioner – both from TK Maxx – £12.99 each for a1 litre bottle.
Next up are these hair savers from professional haircare brand label.m
label.m Protein Spray
This is perfect for protecting hair in the sun and also for protection from heat styling. It contains Jasmine, Sweet Pea, Vanilla, Wheat and Soy to help moisturise hair and label.m enviroshield complex to protect against UV rays. It is a really lightweight spray and I use it after washing to protect my hair from heat styling, it doesn’t weigh hair down and gives it a lovely sheen too.
label.m Intensive Mask
This incredibly rich mask contains Bran, Cottonseeds, Shea Butter and Amazon Cupuau to help nourish and detangle hair. It is a great ‘after sun’ treat for hair and what I love about this mask is it only needs leaving on hair for around three minutes to work its magic, which is perfect if you are short on time (like I always tend to be.) Like the Protein Spray above, it doesn’t weigh the hair down at all and leaves hair bouncy and shiny after use.
label.m Honey & Oat Shampoo and Conditioner
label.m Honey & Oat duo are perfect for repairing dry, dehydrated hair. They contain Honey, Oat extracts, Sea Algae and Sea Cabbage to help strengthen the hair. I use them regularly as they really seem to revitalise my hair whilst still being lightweight like the rest of the products I have mentioned. They also smell gorgeous too. They are perfect for keeping locks shiny and protected whilst in the sun.
