Holiday Hair Tips

Here at Millimetre, we love the sunshine – especially for the tanned skin, freckles and sunkissed hair! But if you’re not careful, all those UV rays can damage your hair meaning more to chop off when Autumn comes around. The sun’s rays can break down your hair shaft, whilst salt from the ocean can alter the hair cuticle causing dry, frizzy and weak hair.

This month we sat down with our specialists to discuss the top tips to prevent sun damage to the hair so you can enjoy your holiday without the frizz…


Oil up
Forget that tanning oil – try hair oil instead! We’re always prompted to put sun cream on our skin but we often forget that we also need to protect our hair from the sun’s rays.

A perfect solution for this is System Professional’s Solar Sun Oil. Run 2-3 pumps through the hair with your fingers, focussing on the ends (which dry out faster than the roots and are more susceptible to damage). 


Hats on
Another top tip is to cover your head and hair with a hat, bandana or turban.

This will not only protect your hair but also your scalp and can help you to avoid sunburn, peeling scalp and sunstroke. 

If funds are low check out your local charity shops or vintage stores for a bargain bonnet!


Rehydrate
After spending the day in the sunshine, make sure you give your thirsty hair a drink.

Why not try a thirst-quenching hair mask like the Pureology Hydrate Hydra Whip – a nutrient and moisture treatment that it will help your hair to fight dryness and frizziness.


Braid away
To avoid your hair to breaking or getting weaker when you are dipping your toes in the sea or pool, why not try tieing your hair in
a beautiful braid?

You can share your braid snaps and tag us @millimetre_salons in your pictures on Instagram to show all your creations.


Rinse thoroughly
After a swim in the sea or a dip in the pool, remember to rinse your hair as soon as possible.

Salt and chlorine can mess with the structure of your hair or even compromise your colour, so it is highly recommended to rinse your hair after a good swimming session.  

Just do it like @leverflack in her tropical shower!


Drink lots of water
Last but definitely not least, make sure you drink lots of water.

Staying hydrated is very important for your body and skin, but it can also keep your hair healthy. Make sure you’re getting your 2 litres of water per day to keep your hair looking healthy and stunning!

Sophie Turner Wellaplex

Olaplex is so last season! Millimetre is thrilled to announce the launch of WELLAPLEX – the revolutionary new way to colour your hair with less damage.

We all know that coloured hair can get damaged – the chemical process, the stress of styling and even your environment can have a big impact on the health of your hair. With WELLAPLEX your stylists are now able to treat your hair whilst carrying out your colour transformation. So whether you’re begging to be blonde or craving a courageous colour change, with WELLAPLEX your hair will be healthier, flexible and more manageable.

Don’t believe us? Just ask Sophie Turner, who famously goes from blonde to red and back again for her onscreen role as Game of Thrones’ Sansa Stark. In an interview Turner said:

“My colourist has been using Wella Professionals newest product, WellaPlex,during any colour services and it totally reconstructed my damaged hair. I’m not worried about my on-screen colour transformations any longer, because I know Wellaplex keeps my hair more manageable.”

What’s the science?
WELLALEX is an exclusive strengthening treatment that helps to reconstruct inner hair bonds for stronger hair. It consists of three stages: first it creates bonds within the hair during the lightening or colour process; next it rebalances the PH of your hair; and finally your take-home stabilising treatment will keep your hair healthy, strong and smooth.
