Richard Ward's top 5 summer hair tips

1) Get protected

Hair can burn and get dehydrated just like your skin, so for extra protection swap your usual shampoo and conditioner for UV Colour Lock formulated ones.

2) Fight the frizz

Frizzy hair is caused by moisture and humidity in the air, drying out your hair, so don’t be tempted to dampen it down with water as this will dry it out again. Use only one frizz control product like a protective hairspray or leave-in conditioner as piling on products only exacerbates the problem. 

3) Prolong your colour

Use a product that cares for coloured hair and has a built-in UV protection.  UVA and UVB ingredients in a product will reduce colour fading and protect the hair against sun damage.

4) Cut and gloss

Always have a trim before you go away to minimise any damage. While away, top up your colour with a gloss as hair tones fade in the sun and need that re-injection of colour mid-visit. Most good salons should be able to custom-mix a colour gloss for you.

5) Plait it

Plaits are a great way to protect frazzled ends and reduce the effects of humidity and damp weather. The braiding technique ensures the majority of ends are 'tucked in' and not exposed to environmental damage.
