Summer Hair Care Tips

We all love summertime but unfortunately it doesn't love our hair, what with chlorine drying our hair in the pool and sun bleaching it if you're not careful you can be left with dry, frazzled locks by the end of the season.

Here's some top tips on how to protect your hair this summer.

Wear a hat

If you're out in the sun for long periods of time then a hat will protect your hair from the drying and bleaching rays of the sun.

UV protection

If hats aren't your thing then you can get UV protection for your hair, just spray it on and it will keep your locks nourished and protected all day long.

Deep condition

Use a deep conditioner or hair mask at least once a week to put moisture back into your hair, you can even get conditioners specifically designed so repair sun damaged hair.

Don't wash your hair before swimming

If you shampoo before swimming it strips your hair of it's natural oils which will actually protect hair from the damaging effects of chlorine, always shampoo after swimming and try to use a clarifying shampoo which will remove all traces of chlorine.

Use hair oil before flying

We all know how flying dehydrates our skin but we don't always think about it drying out our hair, if you pop some hair oil onto the ends of your hair before flying it will stop it from drying out before you even reach your holiday destination.

Summer Beauty Favourites

First up I've been loving the Impress Press-on Manicures, in particular the Accent range, these are an absolute life saver if you haven't got time to paint your nails but they need to look amazing for an event. The Accent range is great because they provide you with 30 gorgeous nails in one colour and then you get six accent nails that compliment the colour perfectly. They're super easy to use just give your nails a wipe over with the prep pad provided, choose the appropriate nails to match the size of yours, peel off the backing and apply. They last for ages, don't damage your nails when you remove them and come in a wide range of fab designs, if you'd like to give them a try they're available to buy from most Asda stores.

Next up is an amazing new product from my favourite tanning range St Tropez, the Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion saves loads of time in the morning and leaves me with a gorgeous natural looking glow in just three minutes. All you have to do is wash as normal in the shower then turn the shower off and apply the lotion which foams up so you can see where you've applied it, apply in circular motions covering your whole body and leave for three minutes which is just enough time to apply a hair mask or brush your teeth and them rinse off and pat dry with your towel. I love the results of this tan, it gives me a lovely summer glow and lasts really well.

As for makeup I've been loving the BD Trade Secrets range from Tesco, I'm obsessed with the Vital Skin Longwear Foundation and the Light Effect Concealer Pen which is just like the YSL Touche Eclat but much more affordable, check out the full range in your local Tesco store or online.

Lastly when I do actually get time to paint my nails I'm currently loving the OPI Hawaii Collection, the polish is amazing quality and lasts for ages on my nails and the colours are perfect for summer time. My favourites are That's Hula-rious! which is a gorgeous mint green and Aloha from OPI which is a really pretty coral.

Get Ready For Your Holiday With Chemist Direct

As a busy working mum I don't always have time to go out and buy all of the things I need, especially when it comes to getting ready to go away on holiday. There are so many things I need to remember to get and it's really helpful if I can get everything I need from one place and even better if that place is online so I don't need to drag the kids around lots of shops.

Chemist Direct have all of the toiletries you need to be totally summer ready and the prices are really reasonable, they also offer free UK delivery on orders over £40 which is great. Whether you're looking for razors, deodorant, suncream or even medicines they have everything covered and you can even buy in bulk which I love as it saves money and means I don't need to do the shopping as often.

 They even offer an online doctor service which could be really useful, so pop over to their website and check them out.
