Keep things glossy with these 5 hair colour brightening tips! As coming back from your hols with a sun-kissed tan is fabulous. Coming back with orange hair that was once blonde – not so much.

Your holiday might be a complete life detox for you, but it’s not for your hair. A mixture of sun and sea and chlorine is the ultimate recipe for damaged hair, leaving it feeling dry, unhealthy and a completely different colour. In order to protect your luscious locks from the heat, preparation is key! We’ve asked hair expert Claire Payne, marketing manager at Herb UK, to help us out with some top tips to keep your hair glowing all summer long.

Tip 1: Splash out on a moisture-rich shampoo and conditioner

Use a moisture-rich, nourishing shampoo and conditioner, which helps to repair damaged and stressed hair – restoring hydration. Pick one with aloe vera, or comfrey, to ensure your hair will be moisturised and protected to the max. Try Herb UK’s Tints of Nature Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner, £6.98. The range is ultra-conditioning and locks in colour.


Tip 2: Switch up your brush

Invest in a good paddle brush to run through your wet hair instead of using a bristle brush, which can cause split ends and dull the natural shine.


Tip 3: Leave it in!

Leave-in conditioners can help protect from the drying effects of the sun, and form a protective barrier to reduce colour fade and environmental damage.


Tip 4: Care for hair from inside out

Hair supplements are a great way to maintain healthy hair from the inside and provide essential nutrients to maintain hair’s health and vitality’.


Tip 5: Give some TLC

Holidays are your hair’s number one enemy when it comes to colour fade. In order to lock in your colour, you’re going to need more than just shampoo and conditioner. Use treatments to nourish and restore dry hair. Look for one with vitamin B for extra moisture, so you can officially be worry-free when it comes to hair protection.
