How To Protect Your Hair From The UAE's Summer Sun

22 Oct 2019

Because we shouldn't just be looking after our skin at this time of year

We have all read plenty of stories about slapping on the SPF and protecting our skin from the UAE's blazing summer sun. But what about our hair? It's often forgotten that that needs sun protection too. 

Here, we round up the fail-safe ways to protect your hair from those 50C summer days... 

Lock-in Moisture 

After a long day out in the sun, in a chlorinated pool or the salty sea, give your hair some R&R. A moisturising mask is a summer essential, try and reach for a gentle formula, that doesn't come packed full of dyes, silicones or parabens. Tresemme's Keratin Smooth Mask is ideal, for replenishing damaged hair, as it's infused with keratin and  gives hair a serious dose of hydration.

Fight The Frizz 

Humidity is a major styling speed bump, there is no doubt about that. Try and avoid reaching for the straightening irons, opt for a frizz-beating product like Tresemme Keratin Smooth Conditioner to keep your locks in glossy check. 

Beat The Heat 

Most of us use a heat protecting spray when we dry our hair with a hair dryer. Hair dryers reach an average temperature of 55C, which is a very realistic temperature for the height of the UAE summer - last year it peaked at a 'feels like' 66C. Using that logic, we should be using a heat protection spray day-to-day in the UAE summer, reach for Tresemme Ketatin Smooth Heat Protection Spray.
