I’m back with part 3 of my 3 part Summer essentials post. I hope you’ve enjoyed my posts so far. This time we’re talking hair 🙂 Now, I’m not a hairdresser or hair guru by any means, but I do know what I like for my hair. Here are 4 of my hair essentials that I always use and can’t do without for the Summer months! Enjoy!
Hot summer days call for surfer babe waves! Ooh that’s catchy 🙂 Forget about the flat iron and blow outs this summer. Think Giselle Bundchen beach wave look for Summer 2015! Surf Spray is a salt infused styling spray which can be applied to dry or damp hair (I prefer damp) to give you the wavy beach look. It adds volume and texture to your hair without weighing it down and its super easy to use. Apply the spray evenly to damp hair from root to ends, then use a diffuser or hair dryer to dry your hair at the root. You can leave your hair at this point or further enhance the waves by using a 1″ curling iron. Once hair is lightly curled, run your fingers through your hair several times to loosen the curls completely, You can apply the Surf Spray again if you wish.
If you have frizzy, damaged, coloured or chemically processed hair then you’re in need of some Oil hair treatment. Ojon is a company that no one in my circle of friends knew about until I started to rave about their products. I discovered this brand while watching the shopping network at 2 am. The company states that ” this oil will help nourish, repair and transform dull and damaged hair and give you glossy healthy shine with only 1 drop”. I have to admit, one drop doesn’t do it for me. 2 drops is more then adequate for medium to long hair. You will most definitely see a transformation from dull hair to healthy shine hair with 2 applications of Rare Blend Oil. These oils were cultivated from Tahiti to the Kalahari Desert. I use Rare Blend religiously after I wash my hair and before styling. Add 2 drops in your palm and apply it all over your hair. Style as usual. It makes my hair feel soft and glossy without weighing it down. I like the fact that this Oil treatment doesn’t have to be heated up or washed out of the hair. Rare Belnd Oil and other Ojon products can be bought at Sephora and Ulta.
3. L’Oreal Hair Expertise EverPure Color UV Protect Spray
The kids and I are always outside in the hot Summer days, so I was looking for something ( besides a hat) to protect my hair from sun damage. Now why should I care about sun protection for my hair you ask? Good question ! According to Good Housekeeping Magazine “The sun affects hair just like it affects skin.The sun dehydrates hair, leaving it brittle and prone to split ends. It can also fade your hair, which is what makes your colour turn brassy”. Ain’t nobody got time for brassy hair!!.“ The L’Oreal EverPure UV protect spray provides SPF 25 protection. You can apply it to damp or dry hair. It’s inexpensive and easy to use. This EverPure line also carries shampoo and conditioner with SPF protection as well.
4. Aveda Sun Care
Along with the L’Oreal Color UV protect spray, the Aveda sun care masque is another must have product if you are out in the sun too long . In my case, I use this hair masque after I’ve been in chlorine water. Chlorine is very damaging to my curly coarse hair. I apply the masque in the shower , leave it on for 2-3 minutes and then rinse it off. I notice my hair after every use just feels healthy, soft and shiny. The Sun Care masque is very creamy and smells divine!! It’s infused with 100% certified organic essences of neroli, ylang ylang and cistus. Just love it!
