many of us prepare to take a sunshine break,
it as well to consider how the sun will affect our
hair colour. Exposure to the sun will damage and dehydrate
the hair shaft and different hair colours will react
in different ways.
The Lanza travel pack is not only handy but great value
and will leave your hair in fantastic condition.

it can create beautiful highlights on naturally fair
hair those shades from a bottle can so easily turn

before you go with plenty of treatment packs and pack
a range of products particularly formulated for blondes
in your suitcase.Try John Friedas Sheer Blonde or
the PPS range to lighten and brighten hair

dehydration.Use an ash-brown colourant before holidays

hair, if natural, should not give you too many problems
in the sun but coloured red hair has a tendency to
fade in sunlight.Take along a range of products containing
UV inhibitors especially tailored for redheads.
hair can become severely dry under sunlight and can
turn random shades of yellowish-green so try to get
it in tip-top condition before you go.A trim is advisable
as the ends will become the most brittle.Use a good
product such as Trevor Sorbies Rejuvenate, containing
cashmere and silk proteins to restore softness and
The PPS Classic blonde range is great for grey
hair as well.
our job we're very lucky
to be able to try many of the best products on the market.We
get to try products from all price ranges, from the ordinary
to the luxury, so it was interesting when it came up in
conversation that several of us still prefer some of the
more affordable products as our first choices.The most noticeable
fact was that almost everyone in the office had chosen to
use a non-luxury moisturiser as their favourite daily products
not as a price choice, but based purely on results. Moisturiser
seems to be everyones favourite item, and whilst we do love
to experiment with new products we almost always return
to our own 'faithful'.
Our top 3 moisturising products which we felt were reliable,
gave good results and were excellent value for money.
No 1 L'Oreal Dermo-Expertise Hydrafresh
No 2 Liz Earles Skin Repair
No 3 Nivea Q10 Range
So don't fall into the trap of believing that the most expensive
is always the best. Choosing products is a purely personal
thing and if you're completely happy with the results from
a more moderate product then stick with it - we do!
Its not just the sunshine
that helps to lift our mood - according to colour therapists
the colour of summer clothing can us a boost too.
Turquoise can help beat stress and calm us down - reminding
us of the blue-greens of the ocean it has a calming
influence and helps us to feel on top of things again.
Orange boosts self esteem and stimulates both the mind
and senses, and as with red in winter, orange clothing
conveys a sense of confidence in oneself.
Pink especially the vibrant tones of cerise, apparently
lifts feelings of vulnerability and denotes a warm personality.
Cream is the colour of sophistication and lifts every
skin tone.Teamed with gold jewellery it always makes
us feel a million dollars.
