    Holiday hair products

    Its ages until I go away but as all the summer stuff is in the shops I thought I'd be organised.

    Has anyone tried the sun protection sprays for hair? Do they work?

    I've got curly/frizzy hair anyway so anything to stop it getting worse is worth the money.

    I live in Cyprus where the humidity is horrible in the summer and so I spend about 3 months of the year with my hair tied back cos nothing can tame the frizz! I do, however, use a serum which is olive oil based and Boots Sun and Swim, both are OK but if anyone has any better recommendations I'd be glad to hear about them too!
    I can't decide whether to be a good example or a horrible warning

    I use the Charles Worthington hair protection, comes in a bright yellow spray bottle with a bright pink cap. It protects against sun and chlorine/salt. I usually use this every day on holiday and reapply when necessary then in the evenings I use the intense conditioner from the same range. Last time I came back from holiday my hair was in better condition than before I'd gone!

    I'll second Vita with Moroccan Oil. I've travelled to some very hot places and this stuff is excellent. A bit pricey but you don't need much.

    Oooh I've never heard of Morrocan oil and I get an afro as soon as the humidity climbs! I've found the serums I've tried make my hair look lank or plastered to my head. Anyone with fine straight hair tried it?

    I have thick straight hair that has a mind of its own. Moroccan Oil tames it very nicely.

    Heli my hair is quite fine, and curly/ frizzy. I didn't have time to order this stuff but found something similar in boots, at about half the price. Lee Stafford.
    I used it on holiday at the beach. Put it in my hair before I dried and straightened it and didn't look lank or oily at all. And my hair didn't go like Diana Ross on a bad day once it got damp like it usually does.
