Beauty Basics: Summer Hair Rescue

Jo’s just returned from two heady-hot weeks in the tropics for her honeymoon (congrats Mrs Knowles!) Ever the blogaholic, she telegraphed this post over from her beach lounger…

After a fortnight in Thailand I’ve got a hint of a tan but having grown up in Australia, one would be rugby-tackled to the ground if found recklessly wandering minus an SPF 50 epidermis, so I can never casually sunbathe. I’ve avoided a post-holiday paunch thanks to the Thai rice and vegetable diet, but my hair…oh god.

Half way through it was ready to pack up and get a flight back on its own. It looked beachy and tousled from some angles but felt like a ready salted crisp with eczema. Being a beauty-bore I was armed with a UV hair spritz (which I’d offer up to fellow bathers  like a first-aider handing out plasters at a festival) however the harsh salt and humidity had a stronger team. Luckily these rehab-hair treatments have calmed the frizz and twiglet texture:
