Philip Kingsley Summer Haircare

Urgh I’ve been feeling a little yucky. There is nothing physically wrong (eye flare ups aside) but just been feeling a bit run down and headachey. Onwards and upwards though because next week I’m off on holiday!! So excited and I’m already getting organised. I recently did a post on Aussie Haircare showing you the products I am taking with me (love Aussie!) and today I thought I would post about the two Philip Kingsley products that are coming along with me as well. I honestly would not travel without them (one in particular I use at home constantly!) because they are so ridiculously good.

Philip Kingsley Swimcap (75ml, £12.00 Philip Kingsley)

If you are looking for an easy to use product that combats the damaging effects of sunshine, chlorine and salt water then you need this! I have really fine, coloured hair and before I discovered Swimcap, my hair was an utter nightmare on holiday! It become so badly discoloured and dry to the point that it felt like straw. But since I discovered this I have never looked back…

On holiday, I apply this cream evenly through my towel dried hair, tie it back and I’m good to go for a day on the beach (or by the pool!). The cream itself is thick (without weighing my hair down) and I only need to use a small amount each day. The scent is so hard to describe but is smells really fresh and is not overpowering (thumbs up from me!). Before heading out for the evening, I wash my hair as normal and it feels soft, shiny and hydrated (as opposed to the mad scarecrow hair that used to greet me on hols!). Another amazing benefit of using Swimcap is that it also works as a conditioning treatment and the results are definitely noticeable. Be warned:anyone you are travelling with will want to borrow this!

I highly recommend giving this a go the next time you are off on your travels (or even if you are just spending the day by the beach or visiting the local pool) because it really does what it says on the tin. Amazing if you have coloured hair like mine!

 Philip Kingsley Daily Damage Defence Spray  (60ml, £8.00 Philip Kingsley)

I love this product so much and it is definitely the best heat defence spray I have ever tried. What I really like about is that, like Swimcap, it serves more than one purpose. As well as being an amazing heat defence spray, it acts as a leave in conditioner and also detangles my hair which makes it a godsend to brush.  Again, I can’t even compare the scent to anything in particular but it smells so nice!
Some products leave my hair feeling sticky and disgusting (to the extent I need to wash my hair again) but this is definitely not one of them. It really makes my hair more manageable and easy to style.  Not forgetting to pack this in my suitcase!
Have you tried either of these? What do you think? Are there any haircare products you would recommend I try? Let me know in the comments below or tweet me @thingsarahloves

    The defence spray sounds exactly what I need!! Never heard of these products before, so thank you for this post! Will be something I'll be definitely looking out for 🙂
