There are a kazillion perks to vacationing all summer BUT one downside is the effects that the sun, sea and hard water (very common in Europe) can have on your hair. I deal with this every summer in Switzerland. The water is extremely hard and it always leaves my hair fried towards the end of our stay. Sassoon Salon reached out to me and offered to “revive” my hair from the exhaustion of summer and I gladly accepted. After many swims in the Lake of Zurich and washing my hair with the Swiss hard water, my hair was thirsty and… View Post
