Is Your Hair Holiday 2022 Ready?

Summer is in full swing and whether you are going abroad or having a staycation this year (there’s not much difference in the temperatures recently 😓) make sure you are aware about some of our top hair care tips for Summer 2022, aside from the standard washing routine etc, of course… 

Please note, that when it comes to hair extensions on holiday we always have and always will recommend that you avoid this. Although this may not be the news you want to hear, wearing hair extensions on holiday exposes them to a lot of risks that can lead to discolouration or early colour fade. If you are unsure on what discolouration and early colour fade are, check out two of our recent blogs here and here that give you some detail. But, long story short this is what you really want to avoid for your extensions. 

If not wearing them on your holidays isnt an option for, you must take on board the advice we give to prevent the worst from happening. Our hair care tips include some of our top recommendations…


1.) Keep Your Hair Up High 

If you’re a gym-goer and getting in shape for that bikini this summer, make sure you are protecting their hair by simply putting it up and away from your face… a sleek bun is a perfect solution. 

Sweat exposure is a big risk when it comes to your hair extensions and their longevity. This exposure can lead to many things including the risk of your tapes slipping, it can compromise the colour of your rings and if not washed properly with the correct aftercare afterwards the extensions can dry out… a big no.

When it comes to certain products on your shoulders, neck etc you need to keep your hair up and away. This time of year, especially, suncream is a big risk but be aware that perfume, body lotions etc are also a big risk for discolouration. If you are wearing these products in areas where your hair touches this can transmit onto the hair and influence the colour. 

If you are going to the beach or swimming pool,  make sure their hair is tied up to keep it out of the sea or chlorinated water which is another key cause of discolouration.

Keep your hair high!


2.) Say Hello To A New Hat And Shade 

As one of the best and most natural ways to protect your hair from the sun, wearing a hat is perfect for both your hair and skin, it's a win win (and a great excuse to go shopping… you’re welcome) 

Temperature is also a big factor in how your hair colour stays vibrant. In order to prevent early colour fade you must keep your hair cool too, so opt for the shade when possible and keep that new accessory on. 👒


3.) Hard Water Warning 

It’s important to note that for those stunning, sunny holiday destinations where the water isn't drinkable because of the minerals it contains, it can not only be bad for your skin but can also cause discolouration to their hair.

Also, don’t forget that exposure to hard water also includes when you are washing your hair in the shower. Therefore, always use bottled water when washing your locks to avoid this risk.
