Top tips for hot summer hair

With high temperatures just around the corner (probably) and balmy Herne Hill nights beckoning (definitely), how do you ensure your hair is tip top and summer ready?

A very important factor in keeping hair perfect this coming summer is to use the right products. This means those without sulphate, which are harsh on your hair colour and are found in most high street retailers. Instead, opt for higher quality products which will nurture and protect. 

If you want to look after your hair, make sure you avoid direct sun by wearing a hat or leaving in conditioner with SPF. Use less shampoo (perhaps just rinse your hair and put in conditioner), drink lots of water and eat vegetables (remember that our hair is often a reflection of how healthy we are). Also, try and take vitamin H (also known as biotin). This promotes healthy hair growth. 

Our favourite summer accessory is a wide wooden comb. This is wonderful for detangling long hair as the wide wooden teeth are gentle and antistatic. It’s also useful for combing hair when it’s dry as it calmly defrizzes hair. 

If you have any questions about your summer hair, please pop into Boki’s Hair Salon (61, Norwood Road, 0208 678 6646) and ask us. We’re always delighted to share advice. We also offer new customers £10 off a cut and style between Monday and Thursday.
