The three best... sun care for hair
Color Extend After-Sun Mask, €28.97 Redken, available in salons nationwide
On a recent trip to Spain, I left this in my hair all day and couldn't believe how easy it was to style that evening once I had washed it out. My colour looked fresh and more vibrant, too.
Protective Hair Veil, €27 Aveda, available in Brown Thomas Dublin and Aveda salons nationwide
I sprayed this twice on my roots and twice on the end of my hair before heading out to the sun. And because it provides 16 hours of UV protection, I didn't have to reapply. Apart from protecting my hair, it made it look really glossy and beachy and not a bit greasy. Worth every penny.
Bain Apres-Soleil, €19 Kerastase, available in salons nationwide
A good shampoo is imperative on a sun holiday – you want something that will gently rid the scalp and hair follicle of chlorine and/or sea-salt without drying it out or stripping your colour.
This offering from Kerastase is an oldie but a goodie and it ticks all of the aforementioned boxes.
