Beauty Tip 45. Coping with holiday hair

We've all experienced the dreaded holiday hair.

beauty tips

Excess sun, sand, salt, chlorine and sweat all play havoc with our locks, leaving us looking rather the worse for wear.

Unfortunately, there is very little you can do to prevent your hair from taking a turn for the worse on holiday, other than wearing a hat in the sun and a cap in the water.

But what fun is that? You're on holiday. It's time to relax and let your hair down, not fiddle around with hats and swimming caps.

Besides, hat hair is every bit as unattractive as holiday hair.

No, the best thing you can do about holiday hair is to make sure you pack a good shampoo and conditioner.

Avoid the complimentary shampoos found in many hotels as they are usually far too strong and stringent.

You've put your poor old locks through enough stress during you fun filled day without subjecting them to even more trauma.
