Protect Your Hair This Summer
The Summer Season is officially here and we want to make sure your locks are ready for it! Whether you’re going on vacation or having a staycation, the sun, sea and chlorine can take a toll on your hair and hair extensions. Read our top tips on how to keep your mane healthy and hydrated in the heat.
PACK YOUR SWAY HAIRCARE
The shampoos and conditioners available at your hotel may contain harsh ingredients such as Sulphates and Alcohol which will dry your hair and extensions out. We always recommend using SWAY Shampoo and Conditioner to keep your hair hydrated and in the best condition on holiday. Shop the SWAY Travel Trio now.

KEEP YOUR BRUSH HANDY
Sunbathing, sea winds and swimming can cause your hair to become more tangled than usual. We would always suggest keeping your SWAY Oval or Paddle Brush close to tame the tangles and avoid knotting and matting.
PROTECT YOUR HAIR EXTENSIONS FROM THE SUN & SUNSCREEN
It is equally important to protect your hair from UV rays, as it is your skin. UV rays can dehydrate your hair extensions and even cause the colour to fade or change. The SWAY Heat Protection Spray contains UV Protection and will nourish and restore your hairs hydration. We recommend spraying liberally before any sun exposure, assuring your hair is ultra-conditioned and protected from any potential damage.
Discolouration can occur if your hair extensions come into contact with Sunscreen. It is best to use a mineral based sunscreen that does not contain Avobenzone or Octocrylene. Aways was your hands after applying sunscreen and before touching your hair. Tie your hair extensions up off your skin to avoid it coming into contact with the sunscreen.
AVOID CONTACT WITH SEA WATER AND CHLORINE
Sea water and Chlorine treated pools can dehydrate your hair extensions and even discolour or change the tone of your hair completely. If you are planning on swimming and are concerned about your hair coming into contact with the water, we would highly recommend coating the mid lengths to ends of your extensions in the SWAY Hydrate Mask. This will act as a protective barrier against the water. We also recommend braiding your hair to avoid tangling.
HYDRATION IS KEY
Relaxing on holiday can be thirsty work, so whilst you sip on your cocktail, ensure your hair extensions are kept equally as hydrated. The SWAY Hair Oil is loaded with a rich blend of Argan Oil, Vitamin E and fatty acids which will absorb into your hair providing it with the hydration it needs in the hot temperatures. Apply liberally whilst you chill by the pool to combat frizz in the increased humidity.
TAKE A BREAK
A holiday is the best time to take a break, especially for your hair! We would recommend having your Salon professional SWAY Hair Extensions removed before your holiday to give your natural hair a break and to avoid your extensions becoming dehydrated and discoloured. Why not pack our SWAY Seamless Clip In Extensions or SWAY Seamless Ponytail to instantly take your hair from day to night?
