We all love summer…the balmy days and sultry nights. But sun, humidity and heat can really do a number on our hair. There are products you can incorporate to keep hair looking it’s frizz-free, shiny best. Read on for how to get fab summer hair and keep it looking great!
The key to great summer hair is to lock in moisture and keep it from drying out. The Carol’s Daughter Cupuacu line is wonderful. One of the products I love is the Anti-Frizz Smoothing Blow-Dry Cream. This heat-protecting cream has everything you need to smooth, fortify and fight frizz. Just apply to damp hair before blow-drying.
One problem I have is, that because of my fine hair, conditioners can sometimes leave my hair limp and lifeless. I’ve been using Kerastase Mousse Bouffante to add volume. The entire Kérastase Couture Styling Collection is for enhancing volume, and it’s excellent. The Volumizing Mousse is formulated to envelop the hair fiber and thicken strands for a dose of glamorous volume throughout.
Because no hairstyle during the summer is more popular than beachy waves, a product that you can use to get the effect is Lavett & Chin Original Sea/Salt Texturizing Mist. Used on the models in the J. Crew catalogs, this spray contains rose flower water, sea salt, coconut oil and a host of botanicals. Spray on wet or dry hair to give your hair that “I’ve just spent a day at the beach” carefree look.
A new can’t-live-without discovery is the Alterna Bamboo Beach Summer Sunshine Spray. This spray contains UV filters, which are so important to help preserve color and protect hair from damage. You apply Summer Sunshine Spray to dry hair after styling. I’ve been amazed at how shiny this makes my hair without being sticky or heavy. Great find!
Sometimes no matter how hard you try, you still wind up with damaged hair. And when you need a repair/rescue product that works quickly and effectively, try L’Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Total Repair Extreme Emergency Recovery Mask. Formulated with Lactic acid (an AHA) and ceramides, this rich treatment penetrates and repairs hair fibers that have been damaged. Use weekly.
