HOW TO KEEP CHLORINE DAMAGE
& Sea Breeze Tangles at Bay
Whilst embracing the summer is great for our wellbeing, it’s not always great for our hair!
Sea breezes mean epic tangles, going for a dip in the pool means chlorine damage to our gorgeous tresses and sunshine can burn our hair just as much as it can burn our skin. It’s all almost enough to make you go full-on goth glamour for the summer isn’t it?

Luckily, we have got you covered just as much as your SPF 50, with everything you need to know to keep your hair looking sleek and shiny this summer.
Here Comes the Soleil!
During the summer, our hair is exposed to UV light, salt and chlorinated water more than any other time of the year. Kérastase has designed the Soleil range to provide sublime hair protection under the sun. Get to know all of the products in the range and find out which ones will work for you.
Baines Apres Soleil
After-sun shampoo enriched with coconut water, gently removes chlorine, salt and sand residues, helping to cleanse hair from their drying effects. On wet hair, the translucent gel lathers to purify the scalp and lengths for a hydrating effect. Hair is hydrated through the lengths for instantly refreshed, luminous and smooth locks.
Masque Apres Soleil
Enriched with coconut water, this deep recovery mask replenishes hair’s hydration after harsh sun, sand and salt exposure. When applied on cleansed hair, it smooths the hair fiber for a uniform touch from root to tip. Its unique gel texture is light enough to avoid weighing down even the finest hair.
Creme UV Sublime
Upgrade your summer hair care routine with a sensual scented leave-in moisturising cream enriched with Vitamin E. When applied to lengths and ends, it prevents dryness and tames frizz for up to 24 hours, leaving a silky-smooth finish. Its ultra-lightweight texture leaves a non-greasy feeling, allowing for multiple applications on dry or wet hair. Hair is shiny and silky even in the most active days of summer.
This irresistible leave-in spray defines and enhances natural curl textures. Enriched with Babasu oil, it instantly softens hair for touchable “no-crunch” texture. Hair is luminous and beautifully radiant.
Hair Masks are a Must!
Depending on how often you wash your hair, we recommend using a hair treatment mask such as Masque Apres Soleil at least once a week prior to going away, to ensure your hair is getting the nourishment it needs. The sun can make your hair dry and humidity can make your hair frizzy, so it’s essential that you keep it conditioned.
Wet Your Hair Before You Go In The Pool
When it comes to chlorine, prevention is the best defence! Once chlorine has taken hold of your hair, it’s hard to remove. The chlorine dehydrates and discolours the hair, revealing a green hue. Wet your hair before you go in the pool and use Creme UV Sublime; this can help act as a barrier for your hair and protect it from chlorine damage. It will also nourish your hair and reduce any damage from the chlorine chemicals, as wet hair is less likely to absorb the chlorine.
Avoid Styling Tools
Heat has the ability to remove colour from your hair, so we advise against using excessive heat on your hair, especially whilst you are on holiday.
