For us beauty junkies, summer should be called the "lazy,hazy, crazy days of....frizzy hair". Love the carefree looks, but it takes a lot of "to-do" to get hair to behave in humidity. I've probably used more shampoos and conditioner over the past 4 weeks, then I do in a season. Tyra Banks, TypeF. beauty website has recommended Neero & Ana as a must-have for natural hair.
If you're struggling with style and care, these tips may help get you back on the right hair track:
TOP 5 TIPS FOR PROTECTING AND CARING FOR SUMMER HAIR
1. NO EXTRA HEAT
Using extra heat on drier summer hair is the last thing you want to do. Use flat irons, curling wands and heat rods sparingly. The extra concentrated heat will only make hair more brittle and prone to breakage.
2. TOP IT OFF
We all love the styles and accessories for summer....from hats to scarves and beyond. Protect hair from the extremes in temperature and humidity. Salt water from a day at the beach can add to hair stress. Choose a stylish straw brim, wide silk headband or bandana. You can find colorful, playful head gear at a lot of mall kiosks and spruce up a pair of shorts or any sundress.
3. MINIMIZE PRODUCTS
Using too many hair products at once will only create build-up. The added gook can attract dirt and even bugs. Who needs a nest of lively creatures in their hair? Plus, the combination of harsh chemicals in shampoos, styling gels and other stuff can interact with each other to harden strands and make hair less manageable.
4. DON'T WASH TOO OFTEN!
Naturally produced oils and moisture get stripped from too much washing. Sure, you want to get salt spray, chlorine and build-up out, just be careful about the types of hair cleaners you use. Try something from the organic shelf this summer.
5. OIL BASED HAIR LOTIONS
A little extra oil can condition and moisturize hair strands. The added protection will help between the sun showers and shampoos days. Try Moroccan Oil or my favorite - Sexy Hair Organics -Moisture Boost . You only need a pea size amount to massage through hair to do the trick.
Look for a few new sexy updo's while your at it. Summer hair should be fun, free and fabulous!
