Your hair will thank us.

The summer holiday season can be a difficult time for hair.

The combination of sun, sea and sand can be really drying and lead to frazzled locks when you return home! 

Well, the ghd UK ambassador, Zoe Irwin, has given us her expert advice and tips on how to treat post holz hair!

 Yeah we know, you’re welcome. 

“Post summer is the best time to refresh your hair routine and to give your hair a detox, so that it can recover from environmental factors including over exposure to the sun and chlorine,” explains ghd UK ambassador, Zoe Irwin.

“The change in season can have repercussions on your hair health as well as your body and skin.”

So what does Zoe recommend to bring your hair back to life?

“The underneath section of hair is the part that gets the most abuse during Autumn and Winter. It gets rubbed by your top, coat, scarf and also when you sleep. It’s this part of your hair that will make your overall hair look and feel healthier if it’s looked after.”

“Use the ghd advanced split end therapy which helps bind broken fibres together to strengthen fragile and damaged hair. Use it every 5 washes before blow-drying and use a ghd styler to activate the ingredients.”


“Paddle brushes are key in the seasonal transition period. The big, flat shape is smoothing and anti-static, so it’s the ideal fix for hair suffering from the wet and windy conditions of autumn.”

Zoe suggests sweeping your ghd paddle brush along the scalp lightly can help stimulate hair growth by improving blood circulation to the scalp.

“Paddle brushes are also the gentlest form of brush. The rounded end ensures you cannot scratch the scalp and the evenly spread out plastic bristles cause less tension with fibre interaction when detangling to ensure the scalp isn’t damaged.”


“Massaging your scalp daily for 10 mins has an incredible effect on the hair. It will relieve tension and also increase the blood flow for thicker, healthier, longer hair.”the blood flow for thicker, healthier, longer hair.”

There you have it now.
