Eight Products You Need for Easy and Great Summer Hair
After our incredibly brutal winter, summer is a welcome and lovely change. Time for beach, barbeques, longer days and more time to spend with friends, but it’s not all fun and games. The burning heat, extreme humidity, UV rays, and pollution, all are great hair poison but is the prize we pay for beach days. Needless to say warmer days can wreak havoc on your locks. And, the result is limp, lifeless hair, often to prone to frizz that just doesn’t look right. Still, we want gorgeous summer hair and we deserve it (damn it) that is pretty, just a little tousled, but we don’t want to spend time in the salon to achieve model hair (it just too hot) and why great products are vital. If you are like us, and a breezy manageable mane is a on your list, you are in luck because found some great products that offer great protection from the heat, minimize frizz, and best off all give you great summer hair with very little work. Here’s what you’ve found:
Alterna BAMBOO Smooth Kendi-Intense Moisture Masque ($24) – After you’ve shampooed and conditioned your hair, you MUST finish it with this mask. It help hydrates seemingly hopeless parched locks with amazing results. It will leave your hair silky smooth, shinny, and easier to style. And, why we are OBSSESED and we just know you will too.
MOROCCANOIL The Original Oil Treatment — We’ve heard a great deal about this product and nearly everything was positive but still we were skeptical about this alleged cure all hair product for even the rowdiest of hair. We can report this treatment lives up to the hype. Put in a little (the size of a pea) and see your hair instantly transforms – you will notice healthier hair, bouncier hair, and shinier hair. What’s more unlike many products we’ve tried you can use this as a leave-in conditioner, you can use it to style your hair, you can use on the days you don’t feel like washing your hair and will tame the frizz and it will work just as well.
Living Proof Frizz Styling Cream – If you have thick hair you may want to consider this product – as its formulated for slightly thicker hair. If you are pressed for time, the styling cream will drastically cut the time it takes to polish your mane and will offer you beautiful hair.
John Frieda – Sleek Finish Straightener – This fairly inexpensive machine is new to the market but LOOK for it. It offers fast warm up (it heats in as little as 15 seconds), high temperatures (heats up to 455F) and special advanced ionic conditioning for sleek tresses that will repel the frizz.
Keratin Perfect PerfectCleanse Keratin Enhanced Shampoo and Conditioner – If you don’t want to commit a full keratin treatment but still want to have some of the benefits, then these products are for you (they are sold separately). Not all are they paraben, sulface, Phthalates, and (among other things) free, but they restore keratin with each wash for healthier, straighter, and smoother hair perfect for the wash and go look.
WEN by Chaz Dean Replenishing Treatment Mist – The unique formulation of ingredients including argan oil offer restorative properties to even to most unruly hair. It will act as quick conditioner and help tame your hopelessly misbehaved hair.
Leonor Greyl Huile de Palm – We are absolutely enamored with this product. Don’t let the French instructions scare you from trying because once you’ve tried you won’t want to go back. It does things that no other product has done. You apply this oil prior to washing your hair and let it set for 10 minutes, sort of like pre-conditioner, and once done you will notice a change in your hair; if it was tangled it will untangle; it was brittle it will now feel soft; if it was dull it will now look brighter. We can’t say enough great things about this product. It will change your life.
