How to keep blonde hair protected in the sun / Charlie Miller Edinburgh.

20 January 2018

In preparation for my trip to Gran Canaria I was back with my favourite stylist, Hayley at the South St Andrews St Charlie Miller salon. As well as touching up my roots and making transforming my locks into the perfect white blonde for my trip Hayley gave me the low down on keeping my freshly bleached hair protected in the sun.

Making sure my hair is covered is something new to me, as a natural brunette but now that I’m blonde, and for fear of going green in the sun it’s become a big priority during this trip. I’ve been deep conditioning, wearing hats and applying plenty of moroccan oil while sunbathing to keep my hair in the best condition possible. Hayley gave me these tips to ensure my hair stays looking fabulous while I’m away. 

  • Using the Kerastase holiday range is the perfect way to keep your locks looking fab, the range includes SPF protection as well as protecting your hair from chlorine and salt. It is a four piece set of creams, oils and leave in sprays that are all you need to keep blonde hair looking vibrant.

  • Try to always wear a hat when in the sun, it’s much needed protection from the strong and harmful rays that can dry out freshly bleached hair. 

  • Rinse hair with water before going into chlorine water as the water will add a layer of protection to your hair before the chemicals within chlorine can get to it. 

  • Use hair oils as much as possible and leave the oil on as long as possible when in the sun whilst wearing a hat so it can really get to work on your hair.
