When you hit the sun loungers, Kindle and cocktail in hand, spare a thought for your hair. Pack these hair heroes in your luggage and they’ll work hard while you relax, to help protect against the drying, colour-fade effects of the sun.

Before a day on the beach apply Aveda Color ConserveTM Daily Color Protect to damp hair. The UV-filters, derived from Wintergreen and Cinnamon Bark oils, help protect hair colour from UVA/UVB damage. Also big on protection is Aveda’s Suncare Protective Hair Veil. We stash this nifty bottle in our beach bag and spritz on as we slather up with sunscreen. The lightweight, water-resistant, UV-defence spray helps invisibly protect hair from sun-exposure to minimize dryness and damage.

After sunning yourself, gently cleanse away sand and salt with Aveda Suncare Hair and Body Cleanser. We use it back home too as the Neroli and Ylang-Ylang scent brings holiday memories flooding back. Next, soothe sunkissed hair within Aveda’s rich, creamy Suncare After-Sun Hair Masque to help restore weakened hair. Apply to towel-dried hair, comb through and leave to work its moisturising magic (thanks to a trio of Tamanu Oil, Shea Butter and Coconut and Palm Oils) as you enjoy a sundowner. Rinse, style and then party the night away.

Back home, restore hair to its pre-holiday glory with a super strength weekly treatment such as Aveda Damage Remedy TM Intensive Restructuring Treatment. With quinoa protein, it works inside the hair to strengthen strands which can be damaged by environmental exposure, as well as chemical processing and heat styling. Well worth the investment after all that fun in the sun!
