Crowning Glory – Sun Protection for Your Hair

Invest in Your Hair,

It is the Crown You Never Take Off

We all know the importance of protecting your skin during the hot summer months, especially this year! Often however, hair gets overlooked when it comes to nurturing it throughout the summer season, with your colour and condition suffering by the time autumn comes around. At Frontlinestyle we have a range of products to help you ensure that your tresses remain unstressed and in perfect condition throughout the long, hot summer.

As well as skin, hair can get burned by the sun, with UV rays burning the interior and exterior layer of the follicle. To avoid this, we recommend you use a pre-shampoo conditioning treatment at least once a week to ensure your hair remains shiny, nourished and easy-to- manage during the summer period. The iconic Elasticizer from ‘Hair Guru’ Philip Kingsley, 150ml. at £32, is specifically designed to retain elasticity and manageability for all types of hair. Work this intensive formula into your hair with your fingertips, leave for 10 minutes and wash off. It’s as simple as that and the results are amazing!

Another factor to take into consideration, is the effects on hair of exposure to water. When hair becomes wet it becomes more susceptible to UV rays, which when combined with the drying effects of chlorine and sea salt, create split ends and breakage. Swimcap from Philip Kingsley, 75ml. at £17 is a cult classic, in the form of a water resistant cream which guards hair against discolouration and dryness whilst providing deep nourishment and hydration.
