Summer Hair Glo-Up

We spoke to Gary France, Toni&Guy International Artistic Director, label.m International Education Manager and our resident agony uncle, about how to achieve a glossy mane when the temperature rises

Problem: Faded, Dull Colour

Solution: Colour Revive Snapshot

As lovely as a sunny day is, those UVA and UVB rays will wreak havoc on your hair and dull its colour. Happily, the Colour Revive Snapshot has been formulated with AC Colourplex to lock in colour, give it a boost in between treatments and even prevent fading. And it’s not just for coloured locks: “The Colour Revive Snapshot is also brilliant at boosting the natural tones in hair that hasn’t been colour-treated,” explains France.

Maintain at home

Keep your colour popping with label.m Colour Stay Conditioner, £16.25. Rich in Heliogenol, which works to fight fading, it also comes with an Enviroshield Complex to protect against heat styling and UV rays.

Problem: Flat and Limp Hair

Solution: Volume Boost Snapshot

“A dense and humid atmosphere will make hair flat and lacklustre, which is why a pre-holiday blow-dry is a good idea,” says France. “Powered by Volumins, the Volume Boost Snapshot is the perfect backwash treatment to enhance it.” A lifesaver for fine and limp hair, it gives a volume boost of up to 30 percent and lasts for up to three days, meaning that big and bouncy hair can be yours this summer.

Maintain at home

That freshly blow-dried look can be maintained at home with the label.m Volume Foam, £16.25. Its lightweight formula won’t weigh fine hair down, volume is boosted at the root and the Enviroshield Complex protects against heat damage while adding shine and radiance.

Problem: Irritated, Sensitive Scalp

Solution: Scalp Soothing Snapshot

It’s not just your hair that’s at risk of sun damage. If you head out without a sunhat or a cap you could be the not-so-proud owner of a red, burnt and sensitive scalp. “With chandan sandalwood as its key ingredient, the Scalp Soothing Snapshot relieves inflammation and calms the scalp, while beautifully conditioning hair,” says France. “Allowing the scalp to breathe again, it’s also good for thinning hair.”

Maintain at home

To maintain your healthy scalp try out label.m Organic Moisturising Lemongrass Shampoo, £16.25, which is packed with organic and naturally soothing ingredients including quince, oats, rice milk powder and jojoba oil.

Problem: Dry and Damaged Hair

Solution: Damage Control Snapshot

Although a summer holiday might furnish you with a well-rested glow and sunkissed skin, it can be nightmarish for your mane. “Chlorine and salty sea water can eat away at hair,” warns France. But swooping in to save those follicles is the potent Damage Control Snapshot. “Powered by succinic acid, it works to create new bonds in the hair to repair it from the inside out, which makes it the ideal post-holiday treatment.”

Maintain at home
