After a couple of weeks of sunshine, sand, saltwater, sea breezes and swimming pool chemicals, you may need to give your hair a bit of attention after your holiday.

After a couple of weeks of sunshine, sand, saltwater, sea breezes and swimming pool chemicals, you may need to give your hair a bit of attention after your holiday. 

Weleda's therapeutic Rosemary Hair Lotion (£4.35 100ml) is made from Rosmarinus officinalis, a herb used for centuries for its restorative and tonic properties, and particularly known as a circulatory stimulant. In years gone by it was used as a hair rinse for dandruff, and it’s an ideal ingredient for dry hair and scalp. The stimulating, revitalising and strengthening properties of rosemary help condition both hair and scalp, to leave hair shiny and manageable.

Like all Weleda products, it’s free from artificial preservatives, colourants and fragrances. As well as organically-grown rosemary, it contains extracts of the horseradish plant (Cochleria armoracia) which is naturally high in silica and sulphur – both essential for the healthy growth of hair and scalp – and wall pepper (Sedum acre) for its anti-inflammatory properties and sulphur content.

After washing, simply splash a little lotion on the palms of your hands and sweep through your hair whilst it is still damp, massaging into the scalp with your fingertips. Allow hair to dry naturally or blow dry on the lowest heat. Regular use helps the condition of permed, bleached or sun-damaged hair and assists hair growth.

For frequent use and daily conditioning, try Weleda's gentle Rosemary Shampoo and Rosemary Conditioner (both £3.20 for 250ml). Rosemary Shampoo is made from mild bio-degradable detergents, as gentle on hair as they are on the environment. Rosemary is also a natural anti-microbial, and an obvious choice to combat itchy scalp problems  where the skin might be irritated from nighttime scratching. The shampoo is carefully formulated to reduce any irritancy potential, and the conditioner will rebalance hair and scalp after shampooing (which inevitably washes out some natural oils) and help remove  tangles. 

Weleda’s cruelty-free products are not tested on animals and are all suitable for  vegetarians.  Available from good independent chemists and  health stores, or from  Weleda Direct on 0115 9448222 or shop on-line at your leisure at the Weleda website www.weleda.co.uk
