Keep Your Hair Hydrated All Through Summer

Kevin Murphy

We know how difficult it is to ensure your hair is healthy throughout the hotter summer months! We all want beautiful, silky locks during the most exciting season of the year, but our hair disagrees with us… Therefore we have decided to give you some great tips on keeping your hair healthy and hydrated all through the summer! – With Kevin Murphy

Dry, brittle hair is not only very difficult to manage, but it also stops you from wanting to enjoy the adventures of the silly season, such as: swimming in the sea, getting those beach blonde highlights, and ironing or curling your hair whenever you go out. 


Get A Trim

Kevin Murphy

Right before summer, take a trip to your hairdresser for a good trim! There is nothing better for those roots than getting rid of any damaged, broken, or split ends. You will notice that if you trim your hair every 6 weeks, it will stay healthier for longer, as well as encourage hair growth!

Keep Hydrated

Kevin Murphy

Internally too… It is important to drink 2l of water a day to ensure your body is hydrated. If your body is healthy, your hair, skin, and nails will most definitely be healthy too! Eating lots of fruits and vegetables, and drinking water do wonders for getting those luscious locks.

Use The Right Shampoo And Conditioner

It is so important to use a good quality shampoo and conditioner. There are so many products available on the market which are filled with harmful chemicals, such as SLS, which in fact cause more damage than restoration. We absolutely love the Kevin Murphy range! They have such a wide variety of products for all different hair types and concerns. 

Kevin Murphy

Quench dull, parched and dry hair, with a nourishing hydration pick-me-up. HYDRATE-ME.WASH is a super-smoothing, hydrating wash that will replenish hair with much-needed moisture. It is ideal for hair that’s naturally dry or exposed to harsh, dry climates. It is also packed with antioxidant goodness to help restore a healthy glow to parched locks. Not only does it hydrate your hair, but it also smells like absolute heaven!

A luxuriously hydrating and smoothing conditioner, designed to restore and replenish hair in need of repair. Ideal for naturally dry hair or for hair that’s been exposed to harsh, dry climates. HYDRATE-ME.RINSE provides an essential moisture boost to nourish dry, parched locks and transforms the look and feel of split ends. It is full of antioxidant goodness, HYDRATE-ME.RINSE leaves the hair with a nourished, healthy-looking glow. I love leaving this conditioning rinse in for a good 5 minutes while washing myself in the shower, allowing it to penetrate right into the roots and ends of my hair. 

Get Yourself A Great Heat Styling Treatment

Kevin Murphy

This is the perfect product to protect your hair against daily life’s biggest aggressor, heat damage. HEATED.DEFENSE is a weightless and invisible leave-in treatment foam to protect your hair against damage associated with heated and mechanical tools. It provides heat protection up to 450℉ / 232℃, this leave-in foam distributes easily and disappears in all hair types, providing a weightless protective shield.

Indulge In A Hair Mask Once A Week

Kevin Murphy

Give dry, parched hair an intense burst of hydration with HYDRATE-ME.MASQUE. Our repairing and smoothing treatment MASQUE deliver hydration and moisture to dry hair, or hair that’s been exposed to harsh, dry climates. HYDRATE-ME.MASQUE’s unique formulation features vitamin-charged, micro-capsules, that explode upon contact to deliver hydration and moisture, leaving the hair deeply conditioned from root to tip.

Give Your Hair Some Extra Shine

Kevin Murphy

Don’t let your blonde hair become dull and lackluster – treat it to a refreshing burst of SHIMMER.ME BLONDE. This repairing shine treatment, with color enhancers and optical brighteners, adds brilliant shimmer and radiant shine to highlighted, blonde or grey shades. It has specially selected ingredients from the Australian Rainforest, chosen for their ability to flourish in harsh climates, add elasticity and moisture, while light-reflective technology from high-end skincare weightlessly delivers magnificent shine. I love this product, it is perfect to spray on damp hair before going out or even as a treatment after swimming in the ocean.
