Summer hair with Philips

If there is one thing on our bodies that is hard to correct once it’s gone rogue, it’s our hair. But, treating it with a little bit of love and care really makes it our best natural accessory.

Everyone can do with a little bounce in their bun, which is why Shaughn Adams has put together top ten tips for everything hair care this summer.

Top 10 tips for everything hair by Celebrity Stylist Shaughn Adams:

1) Always buy the best shampoo, conditioner and mask you can afford because good hair starts with good care.

2) Your secret weapon is Argan Oil. Every girl should have this liquid gold to moisturise, hydrate and soften their locks.

3) Invest in a good thermal protectant spray or cream. Your hair should always be protected when using heat styling devices to keep damage to a minimum.

4) When wet, always comb through wet hair with a very wide toothed comb and never with a brush, as to avoid unnecessary breakage.

5) Since it’s not advisable to wash your hair too often, dry shampoo is a fantastic invention – it buys you an extra day before you have to shampoo your hair again. But, this is by no means a replacement for washing your hair.

6) To have hair that is in great condition, acquire a good brush. A good round brush with an ionic or ceramic centre is half your hair-battle won.

7) Invest in a good hairdryer. My recommendation is the Philips HP 8260, a total gem for its optimum heat settings, ensuring great results with maximum care.

8) If straightening your hair is your thing, you need a great straightening iron, and I just love the Philips HP 8339 because it gives beautiful results without scorching your hair.

9) Always invest in a good professional haircut because your hair reflects your personality. It can influence people’s perception of you before you’ve even spoken to one another.

10) Use hairspray. It holds your hair in place, helps tame fly-aways and also serves as a humidity barrier to keep your hair from going all frizzy.

    I need an intervention to help with my frizzy damaged hair, I know it’s the only thing that will save me from this nightmare called my hair 🙁

    My hair has not been the same since having Mila (Mila is my daughter), it’s not a bad thing, I now love that my straight as a pin hair curls like Corinne Bailey Rae’s. however, that does mean that blowdrying is a must when wanting to achieve a slick look. My hair is in a state that can only be saved by Phillips SA, that straightener has my name written all over it and I wouldn’t mind a hair dryer to replace the one i have which gives off what can only be described as a dismal heat. So please HELP these tresses, i’d really love to be able to tame this mane
