In the UK we’ve had 10 days of continuously hot sun with temperatures reaching 29-30 degree’s daily, this has to be a record certainly in my lifetime and yes I have to be British to be talking about the weather because it’s such a typically British thing to do.
With this weather set to potentially last for another month, it has the UK more divided than Brexit. The Sun Worshippers are telling the Weather Complainers to shut up moaning and enjoy it while it lasts. United Utilities threatening the usual hosepipe ban anytime the sun makes an appearance for more than 3 days in a row, despite there being floods just 3 weeks ago. Idiots are starting fires across the country, thoughtless fools leaving their dogs in cars and poor rabbits in hot hutches, the country has officially gone mad.
Anyhow back to beauty, when the weather reaches these temperatures you’d have to be crazy not to protect your skin but we also need consider taking extra care of our hair. The sun has a natural bleaching and drying effect that causes brittle split ends and this can be more damaging to the hair than any chemicals found in the hair products we use.
So when looking for haircare products at this time of year I would recommend purchasing products that offer UV protection and products that will hydrate and replenish your hair.
It can be fairly difficult to find Vegan hair products that have UV protect but Maria Nila has the most extensive range of products to choose from and all products are 100% Vegan and completely Cruelty Free.
Here are are just a few of the products they have a available with UV protection.
