10 best holiday hair products

Protect your locks from the sun and master beach chic with these summer hair savers, including shampoos and conditioner for sun protection

You can't beat a week or two in the sun  – but while you'll be grateful for all that R&R, your hair might not be.

Nothing wrecks it faster than sun, salt, sand, chlorine and wind. We've trawled the beauty aisles to find the best protectors from Mark Hill to Aveda, and if you love the just-off-the-beach look, getting it from a bottle is better for your locks than salty sea air.
