Summer Hair Care

Hair Care Tips for Summer from
west with style Hairdressers Near Aberdeen


We all know that we should protect our skin when we go out in the sun, but it’s easy to forget that our hair needs SPF protection too.  The sun’s UV rays can wreak havoc on your locks, leaving them dry and frizzy like straw, with the colour looking faded or washed out.

The best way to fully protect your hair is to stay out of the sun on hot days or wear a hat or scarf but if you want to enjoy the sunshine, we have a fantastic range of sun protection products and restorative treatments available at west with style hairdressers in Westhill.

These are our top tips for looking after your hair during the summer months, whatever the weather.

Areas We Cover





Banchory and beyond...

1.  Have a Regular Trim at west with style Hair Salon in Westhill

Make sure you book in with your west with style hair stylist for regular trims to keep your hair looking beautifully healthy over the summer and to keep those split ends at bay. 

It’s particularly important to book in for a trim when you return from holiday, whether you have beach-frazzled ends or wind-swept hair!

2.  Protect Your Hair from the Sun’s Harsh UV RaysSYSTEM-PROFESSIONAL-Solar-Sun-Oil

When you leave the salon with hair looking gorgeous, you’ll want to ensure that you keep it that way.  If you’re travelling somewhere hot for your summer holidays, or even if you’re having a stay-cation, it’s important to protect your hair from the sun’s UV rays.  Consider investing in a hair serum or spray with UV protection. 

At west with style we recommend System Professional’s Solar Sun Oil.  Perfect for all hair types, this water-resistant spray protects your hair both from the sun and the effects of swimming pool and sea water.  It also adds instant softness to your hair, reducing frizz and fly-away strands.  To purchase this summer must-have, simply ask your stylist at west with style and we’ll be happy to help.

3.  Leave Conditioner in Your Hair

After you’ve been for a swim in the sea or the pool, we’d recommend that you wash your hair again using a professional quality shampoo and conditioner.  You can even leave your conditioner in to give your hair an extra boost of moisture… just style your hair into a cool slicked-back look!  Click here to find out about the full range of professional hair care products we offer at our westhill hair salon.  There’s something for every hair type.
