Here comes the sun…

Spring has sprung, the days are getting longer, and there is definitely a hint of summer in the air.

When the long-awaited summer finally does arrive, it can be all too easy to get caught up in the warmth of the sun and forget to adequately protect your hair. Sun, chlorine, salt water – all the best bits of summer – can really take their toll on your hair and turn it into a colour-faded, dried out mess.

We asked KH Hair Creative Team member, Martin Quenault, for his favourite in-salon products to help get your hair hydrated, shiny and in tip-top condition ready for those long hazy days ahead.

Wella System Professional Solar Line 

I love this range of products as they really do help keep your hair protected from the sun. Your hair will stay shiny, moisturised and keep its colour, even if you are out in the sun all day. Pre-sun and post-sun treatments are formulated to prevent colour-fading, breakage and green pool hair! Perfect for taking on holiday with you, this range includes:

  • Hair and Body Shampoo: moisturises the hair and skin after being exposed to the sun. It improves combability of the hair, reducing tangles after swimming and removes chlorine
  • Hydro Repair Conditioner: delivers instant conditioning and works in just 30 seconds. This fabulous cream detangles your hair while reversing moisture and lipid loss. It also gives UV protection to the hair and body
  • Helio Spray: a water resistant sun spray that protects the hair from UV radiation and prevents colour fade. This handy little spray can be applied to wet or dry hair


Sebastian Whipped Crème is one of my favourite summer products and perfect if you are leaving your hair to dry naturally. Simply scrunch into damp hair and leave to dry. This will encourage wave and movement, whilst providing a deep moisturising treatment. Try twisting your hair round your fingers while applying, to give a more defined curl result.

Wella System Professional Colour Save Mask

These fabulous treatment masks can be applied in the salon, or you can use them at home. They will protect your colour throughout the summer months, deeply conditioning your hair and adding moisture. Perfect for vibrant colours.

So, is your hair summer-ready? All of Martin’s recommendations are available in your favourite KH Hair salon. Please ask your stylist for details.

We look forward to seeing you very soon!
