Sun, sea, sand… after the past two years of lockdowns and travel restrictions this sounds like bliss, says Dana, but if you’re planning a holiday, don’t forget to factor in a hair care plan too. You may love the sun, but your hair most definitely won’t.First things first…Ensuring your hair looks beach-babe tousled, sun-kissed and effortlessly cool takes planning says Dana.
Start with a pre-holiday trim and professional conditioning treatment for healthy strong strands ready to fend off the onslaught of hot sunshine, salty sea water and chlorinated pools.
Avoid sun-stressed locks“Hair becomes weaker, drier and far more prone to breakage and split ends when it is exposed to the sun. This is because the sun’s rays quickly alter the structure of the hair,” explains Dana.
To avoid sun-stressed locks apply a high SPF product such as Matrix velvatiser whenever you’re in the sun. Remember your scalp is an extension of your face, so be especially careful along your parting and where hair is thinning.
Add much needed moisture by treating hair to an intensive, nourishing mask in the evening. “I like Miracle creator to restore vital moisture lost from exposure to UV rays, heat and pool chemicals and create soft, healthy, shiny locks” says Dana “Ask your stylist to recommend the best one for your hair type.”
Coloured hair on vacayColoured hair is especially vulnerable to sun, sea and chlorine.
The sun fades coloured hair. And hair that isn’t coloured may become lighter, but this is just another sign of sun damage and should be avoided explains Dana.

Minimise damage from chlorine and saltSea water and chlorine will dry out your hair (and hair extensions) and can irritate your scalp. They can also make your hair tangled and knotty.
Here are Danas top tips:
“If you are using heated tools then always, always apply a thermal protector product, such as dream coat, which reduces the harsh drying effects of styling tools and hairdryers.
