Whether you’re on holiday or staying put, summer hair always needs a bit of a boost. To ensure it remains hydrated and nourished, despite the heat and sunshine, I recommend that you use a mask at least once a week, depending on your hair quality. And if your hair has been coloured you’ll want to ensure it doesn’t lose its shine. I tried a great product from Paul Mitchell called Awapuhi Wild Ginger Keratin Intensive Treatment. It contains a concentrated keratin protein blend to repair and protect the hair as well as providing intense hydration, but its key ingredient is the fragrant juice of the Awapuhi Ginger plant, something that Hawaiian natives have been using to moisturise skin and hair for centuries. Using plants from their solar-panelled Awapuhi Farm in Hawaii, the Paul Mitchell team carefully harvest and process them by hand to preserve their hydrating properties. The result is a soft, creamy product that melts into your hair adding a healthy shine and boosting its texture. It also smells of gorgeous ginger, which has a revitalising effect, so its perfect for your morning shower. I use it once a week at the moment and my hair (which has been highlighted recently) feels very soft and silky. It’s definitely worth a try, especially if you’re a ginger fan!
