As I sit here on my sun lounger with my hair wrapped in a Joan Collins style turban (to stop my hair look like a frazzled poodle) I ponder whether I should have paid more attention to how to look after my hair on holiday. After all I have 20 pairs of shoes for the next 7 days, perhaps there was some room in my case for some essential products to keep my hair as pampered and relaxed as the rest of me during my holiday.
To make sure you don’t make that mistake here are Dean’s handy hints for happy holiday hair
Watching your weight – There’s no need to take your full size products with you with Energy-coded Wella Trio Travel Pack Minis (£15). These kits are the perfect amount for a week away and light and easy to pack.
Beach babe – We all want sexy beach waves. If you have straight hair use the Eimi Sugar Lift (Shiny Sugar Spray) or Eimi Ocean Spritz (Matte Salt Spray) for a tousled sea kissed effect. For those with a natural wave or curl in hair then Sebastian Whipped Crème is the ideal product. Apply the product, twist small sections of hair, leave to dry and then shake it all out. The bonus is it’s really moisturising too.
Got protection? – It’s not just your skin that you need to look after. Try the new System Professional Solar Range to fight humidity and chlorine.
Sun style – In the sun you want to keep you hair tied up but still stylish, this seasons braids and pleats are the on trend answer for high fashion hair by the pool. Stylist tip is to pull your hair back off your face but not tightly so you get a soft and pretty look.
Post holiday blues – Once you are back from your trip, it’s time to book a hair appointment. Your hair dresser will refresh your sun lightened colour and trim any heat damage. After all you look like a bronze goddess and your hair needs to look amazing too.
