14 Jul GETAWAY WITH SLOANS
So it might be miserable weather in Sydney and colder than we can handle, but we are daydreaming of warmer days…even if we need to jump on a plane to find them! We’re feeling well overdue for some fun in the sun and the European summer is calling our name. Greece. Italy. Spain. France. We aren’t picky! We just want to feel the sun on our skin and the summer breeze blowing through our gorgeous hair.
Whether you are heading off overseas on a sun and sand filled adventure or staying a little closer to home and just heading up north this time of year inevitably involves travel for most of us, so here are the top travel essentials of the award-winning Sloans team. Luggage space is always at a premium plus you are also not going to go through too much product, so don’t be lugging around full size bottles of things you might not even use. Instead, think smart.
L’OREAL PROFESSIONNEL LENGTHS AND ENDS RENEWING CREAM
L’Oréal Professionnel’s Pro Longer multi-benefit leave in treatment helps to thicken your long hair whilst making it visibly healthier and stronger looking, perfect for hair under stressful and harsh summer conditions. The unique Filler A-100 technology works by penetrating the fibre core to plump and thicken the hair from the inside. Amino acids in the formula work to strengthen the hair from the outside and the formula works on thin ends, or areas where help is most needed.
To use, warm up a small amount in hands and apply on towel-dried lengths and ends, then blow-dry or style as usual.
KERASTASE SOLEIL MASQUE UV DÉFENSE ACTIVE HAIR MASK
The Masque UV Défense Active is an after-sun conditioning mask designed for colour-treated hair.
The anti-damage concentrate acts as a photo-damage protector, repairing the hair deeply and improving shine. Perfect for hot weather and humididty it has incredible anti-frizz action and reconstructs and smooths fibre. Plenty of lightweight nourishment for a non-greasy finish
complete with sun protection. Delivers optimal hair nourishment.
To use, apply to washed and towel-dried hair and massage onto lengths and ends. Leave on 5-10 minutes then emulsify and rinse thoroughly.
L’ORÉAL PROFESSIONEL TECHNI.ART LISS CONTROL PLUS
This is a control smoothing serum which controls unwanted volume and smoothes the look of frizz- everyone’s summer holiday enemy! When you are heding out for drinks, simpley slick your hir back in sleek and shiny ponytail and dance the night away. Ideal for unruly and hard to tame hair.
To use, evenly apply a small quantity onto towel-dried, shampooed hair. Blowdry to smooth hair, or let it dry naturally to control curls.
Another must have in that travel kit? An accessory (or 15!). There are going to be times when you just don’t have time to style your hair and that is when you need a little bit of help. A silk scarf or headband will hide a multitude of sins, a chic ribbon will dress up a simple ponytail and don’t you dare travel anywhere this summer without a broad brimmed hat to protect you from the sun!
Happy travels, love the team at Sloans!
