Hi Kaza , I can sympathise ,mine is awful too and we go for 3 months.

I have tried everything and I think the problem is the water is so highly chlorinated that it bleaches and dries your hair.

When I have a bath it smells like bleach so that must be the same when you're washing your hair.

The best thing I have found is Moroccan oil . There are loads in the shops but you need a really good one .

It is about £30 on line .

Use it after you wash your hair. All their products are great. They do a shine spray too.

I use john Frieda products too. You can't buy them in Tenerife so you have to bring them with you

I hope this helps. If you find anything better let me know !!

My hair is dreadful when I'm away too, so last year I used L'Occitane products instead of my usual stuff, but it didn't make much difference unfortunately. I usually wash my hair every day at home (its very fine) and when I'm on holiday it usually gets done twice, especially after I've been swimming. Might try the Moroccan oil, will speak to my hairdresser next time I see him and see if it will help.

Be good if someone has got any other advice I'd love to hear it too :)
