Summer is well and truly here. While that means hot weather and beach days, it also means your hair is exposed to the elements and can often feel dry and become damaged. We caught up with hair expert Kevin Murphy to get his essential tips for summer hair care to ensure your tresses look good this season!

For a much-needed dose of hydration
“After summer, your everyday washing and conditioning routine should include products that contain ingredients designed to deliver weightless hydration and strength to your hair.

“The KEVIN.MURPHY HYDRATE-ME WASH and RINSE duo is the perfect balm to your dry and stressed hair. Featuring kakadu plum, harvested wild from Australia’s Northern Territory, this key ingredient has the highest concentration of natural Vitamin C of any known plant, that will stimulate production of elastin and collagen to promote lustre and elasticity,” Murphy said.

HYDRATE-ME WASH and RINSE contains hydrolysed silk extracts to smooth the surface of the skin, Vitamin A, C and E to create a silky feel and touch, micro algae to stimulate cells deep into the cortex and basal layers of the scalp to improve overall appearance and health of hair, and sunflower oil for its antioxidant properties and UV protection.

Attention blondes
“For ladies with blonde hair, the UV rays of the sun is particularly damaging to blonde colouring as all natural moisture is stripped out and hair can often be left brittle and frayed. SHIMMER.ME BLONDE is the perfect styling and treatment product-in-one to reverse the effects of summer” Murphy said.

SHIMMER.ME BLONDE features high-end skincare ingredients, along with silver pearlescent pigment and lavender colour enhanced mica, to ensure blonde tones will receive the nourishment and strengthening that is much-needed after summer. This unique leave-in treatment and colour enhancer keeps your hair radiant and nourished from roots to ends.


“Co-washing is short for ‘conditioner washing’ meaning that hair is washed with a cleansing conditioner. By using this method of washing you will be adding a dose of hydration that is easily absorbed into the hair and keeps hair nourished without weighing it down,” Murphy explained.

“It is the perfect way to revive hair after lengthy amounts of time spent in the sun.”

RE.STORE utilises the latest technologies in anti-ageing skincare within a treatment that includes properties that cleanses the scalp, like a gentle shampoo, however also treats the hair at the same time. Featuring lipid proteins hair is given an intense dose of hydration that is easily absorbed into the hair.
