Whether you’re jetting off on holiday or in need of some general haircare help, we’ve rounded up our current favourites.
From finishing spray to colour treatments, masks and more, look no further for a list of our summer haircare heroes.
Kerastase Reflection Range
Brand new from Kerastase is their updated Reflection range, covering shampoo, conditioner, a masque, leave-in care, plus the innovative Touches Chromatique. Creating super shiny, incredibly well nourished hair, Reflection is a Kerastase cult buy bestseller. Whether a newbie to the brand or a devoted fan; explore the recent addition, Touches Chromatique, available in four shades. Mix into the Masque Chromatique after shampooing with Bain Chromatique. Colour is neutralised and enhanced, ideal for both pre and post summer holidays. We are addicted to the entire range.
Hairburst Mulberry Silk Pillow
We were very excited to try Hairburst’s Mulberry Silk Pillow, and can tell you, it is brilliant. Designed to keep locks smooth and also fight signs of ageing, the pillow is so relaxing and calming to boot. The pillow’s silky soft surface prevents pesky sleep creases and helps rosacea too. Hair can rest easy on the pillow, with gentle silk fighting breakage and frizz. I definitely have seen a difference, and found the pillowcase lovely and cooling as well.
John Frieda Frizz Ease Extra Strength 6 Effects + Serum
The first ever brand to discuss frizz in haircare nearly 30 years ago, John Frieda are your ultimate experts. Avoid humidity hair and look for their Frizz Ease Extra Strength 6 Effects + Serum. A small amount goes a long way and can be applied straight onto wet hair. Protecting your ‘do from both humidity and heat damage; pop this product in your suitcase this summer.
Olaplex No.3 Hair Perfector
A major buzz word in the haircare industry at the moment, Olaplex is a three step treatment covering in-salon service and this product for aftercare. My stylist has been raving about the benefits of Olaplex recently, with it targeting hair damage at a molecular level. Absolutely fascinating, Olaplex helps to repair broken bonds and links them back together. Although technically suggested use is post salon treatment, we dipped our toe into the water with the No.3 Hair Perfector, as the original course is booked for our next trip. To be left on damp, unwashed hair for 10-30 minutes, you then shampoo, condition and repeat once a week for moderately damaged hair. My mop felt nourished and much thicker. Watch this space for more Olaplex updates- we are completely fascinated by this frankly amazing haircare buy.
Ogario London Styling Mist
If you haven’t tried the Ogario London haircare range already, we urge you to explore this StyleNest beauty staple. A recent addition to their collection is the Styling Mist, containing pro-vitamin B5 and vitamin E for strength and shine. The refreshing lemon zest scent is infused with oats and honey. A handy size for travels, we add a spritz through hair ends just before a blow-dry. The brilliant formula makes it easy to brush hair and avoid tangles, also producing shine too.
Shea Moisture Raw Shea & Cupuacu Frizz Defense Styling Gel Cream
This conditioning styling gel adds shine and smoothes hair in need of a sleeker look. Perfect for thick, wavy hair, you can also add curl definition. Created using natural and organic ingredients, Shea Moisture is a haircare range exclusive to Boots and also includes several other products. Enjoy hair products minus sulphates and parabens, soaking up that sumptuous shea butter scent.
Philip Kingsley Swimcap
A product originally formulated for the US Olympic Synchronised Swimming Team, Swimcap shields the hair from harmful rays, salt, and chlorinated water damage. Simply smooth through the hair from root to ends, creating a protective layer. Avoid the drying effects of salt and sun, or the colour damage potential from chlorine, offering hair a luxe treatment at the same time. This is most definitely a summer sun haircare must-have.
Paul Mitchell Wild Ginger Awapuhi Finishing Spray
Trust me; this is the best hairspray you will ever find. The softening awapuhi ensures hair can still move, while humidity-resistant elements fight the frizz. Your hair will stay put, even in scorching temperatures, and won’t have even a hint of that hideous hairspray crunch. Refresh a blow-dry or tighten an up-do, looking to this amazing Finishing Spray for help.
Argan Liquid Gold Argan Oil
Made of 100% pure and organic argan oil, this multi-tasking product is perfect for hair, nails and skin too. Argan Liquid Gold have a luxury range comprising products such as a foaming cleanser, cleansing cream, BB cream, day cream and night cream. Infusing pure argan oil with 24 carat gold, this premium beauty range is indulgent and luxurious. The anti-ageing products protect collagen, and nourish, and we now love a little bit of this oil as an overnight hair treatment or quick tresses pick-me-up.
