Whether you’re planning a cheeky little getaway before the schools break up or you’ve booked an action-packed family holiday this summer, our stylists recommend 5 haircare essentials to pack in your suitcase. These will protect your hair from the harsh rays of the sun and damaging chemicals found in swimming pools and polluted air, while improving manageability, strength and shine. Here comes the exciting bit… we are running a social media competition commencing Thursday 15th June at 6.30pm for you to win these top 5 holiday haircare essentials PLUS a bottle of Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé champagne! Oh yes! Visit us on Facebook or Instagram to read the instructions on how to enter (prize value just over £160). So, grab yourself a cup of tea (of glass of champagne if depending on the time of day!) and take note of the only protective hair products you need for your summer holiday this year…  
  • SP Solar Hair & Body Shampoo
This versatile shampoo can be used from head to toe, so is ideal for quick post-swim showers. The gentle formula eliminates traces of sun block, salt and chlorine while using HelioRestore Complex to aid deep hydration. When used on your hair, this shampoo refreshes your locks and improves manageability leaving your hair light and full of shine. On your skin, the cleanser effectively removes residue including stubborn waterproof oils and creams. A perfect daily shampoo which will leave your whole body feeling fresh and rejuvenated.  
  • SP Solar Hydro Repair Conditioner
Give life to tired locks with this gentle yet effective formula. HelioRestore Complex rewinds the damaging effects of prolonged sun exposure and salt / chlorine water on your hair. The deep conditioning treatment delivers essential hydration by replacing lost moisture from heat and chemical damage, leaving your hair smooth, nourished and light, never weighed down. Glide a wide toothed comb through your hair when conditioning to remedy any tangles created from salty sea air.  
  • SP Solar Hair Oil
Spray a protective mist of Solar Sun Oil over your hair before sun exposure to reap the benefits of UV filters and damage preventing oils. This restorative Keratin based oil promotes long lasting hair strength and smoothness. When used post-beach add a few pumps to your conditioning treatment to accelerate moisture and on dry hair flyaways will be tamed leaving your hair ultra-sleek and soft, ready to party.  
  • Solar sealing cream
Designed for dehydrated locks, System Professional Solar Sealing Cream works to protect hair from the damage caused by sun and water exposure. Promising nourishment from root to tip, this sealing cream can be used daily to shield against UV radiation and minimise damage from salt and chlorinated water. Ideal for difficult hair that tends to frizz, this cream intensely conditions your strands of hair to leave them feeling softer and more manageable, whilst preventing further sun and water damage. To use, spread evenly through damp or dry hair before and during exposure to the sun. Leave in and ensure you reapply after swimming. This cream can also be used as a leave-in styler to tame frizzy and unruly hair.  
  • Solar Helio Guard Spray
The only UV protection you need for your hair this summer. It creates a protective shield for your hair, protecting each strand from UV radiation, minimising damage and colour fade. The water-resistant formula isn’t greasy so you can style and wear your hair as normal after application. This wonder spray protects the proteins in your hair preventing moisture loss and keeping your hair colour vibrant. Apply regularly while spending time in the sun, much like you would with sun block.    
  • All these products are created by our favourite professional haircare range System Professional, distributed by the kings of haircare at Wella. All the products we use and sell in the salon have been tried and tested by our stylists and come highly recommended.
