â??The sea, sun, excessive heat, as well as styling product build-up can really take it out of your hair and while you may want to look your best for the summer holidays, there are no quick fixes for hair that has turned dry and brittle due to excessive exposure to the elements. Only by getting to the root of your problems will you enjoy long-lasting healthy hair,â? explains Dr Gray.

Looking and feeling glam every day of the summer holidays is every fashion conscious girlâ??s dream, which is why Dr Gray has shared his top 10 tip for protecting our hair this summer, so that our hair remains beautiful long after the sunnier months have ended:

Moisture First: Moisturising your hair is key to the wellbeing of your hair because the sun breaks down its protein (keratin). By conditioning using Panteneâ??s range of 2-minute masques to suit every hair need or making use of a leave-in conditioner you can ensure that permanent damage doesnâ??t set-in

A Hat Affair: Nothing says summer like a glam wide-brimmed hat or a quirky fedora so be sure to don those fashionable head-pieces. Not only will you look fabulous but youâ??ll be providing your hair with full protection from the sunâ??s harsh rays

Sun Block: Your skin is not the only part of your body that requires UV protection. Make sure you select hair care products that promise UV protection for your lock
