If you’re heading somewhere hot for your summer holidays, make sure you protect your hair.  Consider wearing a hat or a scarf to protect your locks from the sun and invest in a hair serum or spray with UV protection.

You can also put your hair in an updo or bun to protect the ends of your hair from breakage.  Try giving your hair a break every so often though by loosening those braids to give your scalp a rest.

4.  Wet your hair before going for a swim

Fancy a dip in the pool or sea?  Wet your hair under the shower first so that it absorbs less salt water or chlorine.

5.  Leave conditioner in your hair

Once out of the pool or sea, wash your hair again using a good shampoo and conditioner.  You can even leave your conditioner in to give your hair an extra boost… and a cool slicked back style!  Just remember to wash it out in the evening before you head out on the town!

6.  Seek advice from your Afrotherapy stylist
