HOLIDAY HAIR MUST-HAVES

HOLIDAY HAIR MUST-HAVES

So we’re all crushing over Molly-Mae’s Love Island hair right?  If like everyone else, you’ve been wondering how Molly keeps her hair perfect in the heat, then wonder no more!  We’ve put together our best tips on how to keep your hair looking fantastic on holiday.

Unfortunately, it’s a fact that the sun is damaging to hair and will 100% dry it out.  Even if you aren’t headed abroad, it’s been rumored we’re going to get some pretty hot weather at home this year so you should still protect your locks the same the same way you protect your skin in the sunshine.

 

START AS YOU MEAN TO GO ON 

Before jetting off, you should be trying to get your hair in the best condition possible to minimise any damage from the heat, sea and chlorine.

Use a good quality hair mask like our Triple Moisture Mask to prep your hair and get it silky smooth.

Top tip if you’re sitting at the pool all day or dipping in the sea – wash your hair, pop the mask on, leave on through the day then rinse out before you go out at night for super soft hair that won’t go frizzy while you party!

BE GENTLE 

Remember that your hair is always more fragile when it’s wet so it’s especially important to be gentle once you’ve been in the pool or washed or your hair.

A Tangle Teezer is our favourite hair brush for hair extensions because it glides through your hair without causing tension and damage, which helps to maintain the condition of your silky soft locks.

KEEP THE SCALP COVERED

Your scalp is the quickest part of the body to burn in the sun because it’s constantly facing the sun directly.  Due to this we would always recommend wearing a hat or covering your head while you’re sunbathing.  This will stop you getting sunburn and also stop the sun from causing damage and discolouration to your hair.

USE PROTECTION PLEASE 

It’s super important to use heat protector on your extensions because any dryness caused by the sun will be made worse by using heated styling tools after.

Our Heat Protector Spray is ideal for all hair types and provides instant protection against straighteners, curling and direct heat.

Of course, when you’re holiday, it’s not just heated styling tools you need to worry about!  So, if you’re headed out in the sun all day why not spray your hair lightly with Leave-In Conditioner to keep it from dying out and add some shine.

FAKE IT TIL YOU MAKE IT

Like the idea of having hair extensions fitted, but worried about the commitment? For glamorous holiday hair, why not pack a set of human hair clip in extensions or a quick-fix hair piece?

CrownCouture Clip In Hair Extensions are made from 100% human hair that can be styled to your desired look.  Long beachy waves, sleek straight tresses or a chunky braid. Clip-in hair extensions will also give you the freedom of not having a full head of extensions in during the day but will then transform you for the perfect glam evening look.

Want to cut down your time getting ready in the room and get down to the bar early? CrownCouture has Hair Pieces to suit every style – sleek high pony or messy bun, or long beachy tresses. The hair pieces are ready styled, just clip and go, changing up your look in a matter of seconds.

BLONDE BABES 

If you’re blonde, you know the struggle of holiday hair is 10x worse!  Sunshine and chlorine discolour and damage the hair and you can end up with brassy yellow tones in just a few days.

Malibu C Treatment sachets (hard water and colour correction) are a must-have for blondes on holiday to keep your locks in their best condition. These sachets will remove hard water deposits and impurities, as well as eliminate brassiness, discoloration and damage caused by mineral absorption. They’re travel friendly and will keep your hair fresh and free of brassy tones.
