Protect Your Hair This Summer

The main topic of social conversation at Combers right now is, you guessed it, holidays.  Some people have been on theirs already, some are jetting off soon while others want to go again.

But as you pack your bags this summer and dream of faraway beaches or exotic sightseeing trips, remember, you don’t need to take a holiday from your hair care routine.  Most of us like what the sun does to the colour of our skin even though we know it is damaging. Sun on hair has no benefit as it messes with your colour and causes immense damage resulting in reduced elasticity, body, shine and in some cases breakage.

At Combers, we use and recommend the eco and sustainably friendly Davines SU / Sun care range for hair and body
