Sun protection for your hair – Phyto style

Phyto VeilSo much is written about protecting the skin during the summer months that it’s easy to forget that hair needs a little bit of protection too – particularly if you’re on a beach or spend a lot of time outdoors with the sun beating down on your bonce.

Phyto’s PhytoPlage Protective Sun Veil might sound like device to protect a Medieval princess from the elements but it’s a great product to have in your summer grooming armoury along with a sunscreen, a decent summer fragrance and a foot file for your gnarly trotters, especially since sun can damage hair’s cellular structure leaving it brittle and looking like straw.

Non-greasy, only lightly-fragranced and packing a botanical sunscreen it’s been designed to keep hair in tip-top condition throughout the summer and protect it from the drying effects of saltwater, chlorine and baking heat. So handy is it that I actually wish I still had hair to use it on.

Available from SPACE NK priced £15 for 125ml.
