1.  Have A Regular Trim

Make sure you book in with your Cheynes hair stylist for regular trims to keep your hair looking perfect and to keep those split ends at bay.

2.  Deep Condition Your Hair 

Invest in a deep conditioning treatment like OLAPLEX or Wellaplex which repair and protect damaged hair.  Or maybe it's time for a hair smoothing treatment to get rid of frizz!   Talk to your Cheynes stylist who can recommend the perfect hair treatment for your hair type and needs.

3.  Protect Your Hair From The Sun 

Once your hair is looking and feeling great, make sure you keep it that way.  If you’re heading somewhere hot for your summer holidays, make sure you protect your hair.  Consider wearing a hat or a scarf to protect your locks from the sun and invest in a hair serum or spray with UV protection.

4.  Avoid Chlorine & Salt Water

If you fancy a dip in the pool or sea, try wetting your hair under the shower first so that it absorbs less salt water or chlorine.  Chlorine and salt will dry out your hair which causes breakage, split ends... need we say more!?

5.  Leave Conditioner In Your Hair

Once out of the pool or sea, wash your hair again using a professional quality shampoo and conditioner.  You can even leave your conditioner in to give your hair an extra boost… just fashion your hair into a cool slicked-back style!  

We highly recommend the System Professional Solar range of hair care products, designed to protect the hair from damage caused by exposure to the sun.  Choose between Hair & Body Shampoo, Hydro-Repair Conditioner, Sun Oil and Solar Cream.  The Sun Oil can be applied before and after sun-bathing to protect your hair and keep it soft and less flyaway, while the Solar Cream gives deep nourishment and protection against UV radiation and the damaging effects of salt and chlorinated water.  Find out more here.
