Sun, Sea & Silky Tresses – Holiday Haircare with Moroccanoil
9 June 2022
If you’re counting down the days until your holiday, it’s easy to get carried away by vacation daydreams and
planning your outfits. And while sunscreen might be one of the first things on your to-pack list, don’t forget your
haircare essentials either.
From shampoo to styling and sun protection, here are five top tips for hair that’s ready for the ‘gram every day of
your holiday, with a little help from Moroccanoil
Pre-holiday haircare prep
Keeping your hair hydrated is key to reducing sun damage, so using a deep conditioning mask or treatment in the
weeks leading up to your holiday can make all the difference. The Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask is a good
hair day in a bottle – it hydrates hair deeply, making it manageable, soft and glossy. In fact, this mask is so quick
and easy to use, you might want to take it with you for a mid-vacay boost.
Make the time to get a trim before you leave for your holiday, as it will give your hair some shape, meaning less
time spent styling it and more time by the pool bar. A pre-holiday cut will also get rid of any split and dry ends,
which reduces frizz and flyaways.
Exposure to the sun’s UV rays can be as damaging to your hair as it can be to your skin. It can also play havoc with
your colour, as UV rays break down the chemical bonds present in hair dyes, causing colour-treated hair to fade.
That’s why wearing a hat will not only have you feeling en vogue, your hair will thank you for it too.
As well as UV rays, pollution and heat can damage hair, so make sure you apply a protecting spray. The Moroccanoil Color Complete Protect & Prevent Spray contains sunscreen as well as antioxidants that neutralise free radicals
from UV, pollution and other environmental stressors. It also protects your hair from damage while heat styling, as
well as detangling hair, increasing its shine and softness with every use. Simply mist evenly throughout mid-lengths
and ends on towel-dried hair, comb through and style as usual.
Rinse and Go
Salt from the sea and chlorine from the pool can really dry your hair out. If a cap isn’t your thing, wet your hair
thoroughly with clean water before swimming. Hair acts like a sponge – when you wet it, it gets saturated, which
means it won’t be able to absorb the chlorinated or salty water. The colder the water, the better (sorry).
So, go ahead and don’t be afraid to get your hair wet while you’re on holiday
Cleanse and Condition
Product, grime, and dirt can really build up when you’re spending a lot of time outdoors. Add sea salt and chlorine
into the mix and your hair will be ready for a good cleanse. While the heat may make it tempting to jump into the
shower every evening and wash your hair, this can actually strip it of its natural oils. Instead, stick to just a rinse
most days, and shampoo around twice a week instead.
Make sure you’re using a hydrating shampoo and conditioner to replenish the moisture in your hair with every
wash too. The Moroccanoil Hydrating Shampoo cleanses your hair and scalp gently, conditioning hair with
antioxidant-rich argan oil, Vitamins A and E and moisture-attracting red algae. The Hydrating Conditioner completes
the duo, giving dehydrated hair just what it needs, leaving it smoother, more manageable and easier to style.
Beat the Heat
It’s already hot outside, so don’t add to it with heat styling tools. If you have to blow dry your hair, use your hairdryer
on a cool setting. Being on holiday might make you want to go for mermaid waves, but don’t pick up those curling
tongs just yet – check out allbeauty’s article on how to get gorgeous looking curls without using heat. If you have to
use heat to style your hair, use a styling product that protects your hair like the Moroccanoil® Hydrating Styling Cream
which conditions, hydrates and tames frizzy hair.
It doesn’t take much extra effort to keep your locks lush during your time in the sun. Shop Moroccanoil® products
