Holiday Hair Care & Tips
Avoid the summer hair blues and let us help you to keep your children's hair in tip top condition!
Sun, salty sea water, chlorinated swimming pools and sandy beaches.........
Yes! We can hear the tears now BUT in fact this CAN be prevented by following a few easy tips. Meaning those precious memories that are to be made will not be replaced with moments of unruly holiday hair!
Before travelling make an appointment to visit your stylist to take any split ends off. If split ends are left on your hair this will accelerate hair breakage, your hair will be put through lots of environmental stresses on holiday so a fresh trim will give your hair the best chance of survival.
Make sure to keep your hair super hydrated, salt from sea water pulls moisture from the hair and chlorinated water strips essential oils from your hair, add the lovely UV rays to the equation and Ta! Da! this will no doubt leave your hair feeling parched and unruly, leading to those unwanted tears.
We believe prevention is better than a cure, so before leaping into that pool, jumping waves in the sea or building sandcastles in the sun, prepare the hair with one of our recommended leave-in-conditioners, apply or spray in, brush product from root to tip ensuring all the hair is coated and voila! protected hair!

We recommend for Younger children
Original Sprout Leave-in Conditioner. It's lightweight formula is made with nourishing emollients and arnica for split ends, making it ideal for detangling and eliminating frizz from damaged hair. Apply a penny sized amount onto ends to enjoy ultra-soft, moisturized tresses. For swimmers, apply to wet hair before swimming to prevent chlorine damage and green hair.
Sometimes it is hard to keep excited children steady long enough to complete product applications, so we would say to wear a hat wherever possible to keep the UV rays off their hair and scalp, thus preventing burning to the scalp and hair dehydrating in the sun.
So although prevention is better than a cure, sometimes, especially towards the end of your holiday when hair has had more exposure to the sun, where your hair is more fragile from all the fun of your holiday, salt from the sea and that sneaky chlorine builds up on hair.
Chlorine is a pretty damaging chemical, great for protecting you from bugs and bacteria when swimming but the devil for hair unfortunately. It can remove the natural melanin from hair, which is part of why it lightens and turns that green ‘pool hair’ colour. It can also break down the amino acids in our hair, which can deplete its natural strength and dry it out. It has no preference to what hair it depletes. You will notice if your child's hair has a chlorine build up as hair becomes very difficult to comb or brush and can tangle from quite high up the hair shaft, it also can take on a nylon fake hair feel with a dull fake shine.
Don't Worry!! We can help you stop it getting to this point!
By simply using our recommended clarifying shampoo, followed up with one of our recommended deep moisturising conditioners, harmony can be restored and summer smiles can return to both child and parent!
Don't forget to pack these holiday essentials.....

Original Sprout deep condtioner Suitable for Vegans/Family Friendly/Natural and Organic
Hard water, sun, wind and pollution dehydrate hair making it prone to tangles, frizzies and flyaways. This Deep Conditioner is infused with Hawaiian kukui seed oil to help repair hair, leaving it silky and smooth. Apply onto ends for optimal moisture and movement, leave on hair for at least five minutes. For a deeper treatment, try wrapping hair in a warm towel or shower cap for 15 minutes to help the ingredients penetrate deeper before rinsing.
So now you've had a few helpful tips on how to free your locks from impurities on holiday and on your return. Just keep in mind all the stress your hair will go through over your holiday. We recommend only using a clarifying shampoo after swimming and after a those beach days, following up with a deep moisturising conditioner, to load moisture that has been stripped from your hair back in.
