Get a trim

Minimise oiliness by using a lightweight shampoo and conditioner

The increased humidity and hot steamy weather can leave you with oily roots and dry ends as your scalp sweats. So if excess oil is a concern, switch to a lightweight shampoo and conditioner. The Cristalliste line by Kerastase feels weightless while keeping hair looking fabulous. The Bain Cristal Luminous Perfecting Shampoo provides a lightweight lather and glossy ends.

The Soleil line by Kerastase is specifically designed for sun protection and the masque UV defense active is perfect for Summer! It replenishes and nourishes the hair cuticle providing protection against UV rays.

Say adios to your hairdryer and straightener 

Heat styling products will only cause further dryness and absorb the moisture out of your hair. So as hard as it is ladies, try not to use your stylers as often as normal during the summer months. Instead, embrace the natural look styling hair in a ponytail, messy bun and cute plaits.
