Even though summer can be an incredible delight, it can sincerely wreak havoc on your hair. Between UV rays, excessive heat (and heat styling,) pollution and constant punishment to keep it from looking like a frizzy or limp mess, you put your hair through a lot during the hot months. Here are some of my must-have essentials to keep hair looking good and in great condition during the summer:
1) Leonor Greyl Lait Luminescence Bi-Phase – HANDS DOWN the best detangler I have ever used. I’m not even kidding – spray it on wet or dry hair, then simply run a brush through it and it releases even the nastiest tangles as well as adding great shine and manageability. You can also use it to protect your hair from the sun or – wait for it – swimming damage.
2) TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Protective Spray – An essential for using heat implements of any kind on your hair, this product actually works with the heat to condition and protect your locks from the blow dryer/curling iron/ flat iron torture you apply. Here’s an added bonus – spray it on before you head out into the sun and it will use the sun’s rays to condition your hair. Just tried that one this weekend and it works.
3) AVON Advanced Techniques Frizz Control Lotus Shield Anti-Frizz Treatment – This product goes into the hair product hall of fame for holding frizz at bay for up to three days. As in, moisture will bead up and roll off your treated hair when using this product. If you have frizz, I can recommend no other product more highly.
4) WEN by Chaz Dean Replenishing Treatment Mist – This miracle product has a mixture of restorative botanicals, extracts, and argan oil that when applied actually penetrate immediately and act as a quick conditioner that revives stressed, dry or misbehaving hair. If you need to go from day to night in a hurry from a day in the sun, this product is a miracle saver.
5) Ouidad Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel – This product actually works with humidity and heat and allows hair to “breathe” so that the hair shaft is protected from damage but it’s not allowed to expand. Hence, frizz and unruly issues are no more. It’s a genius product.
Worry about frizz no more, folks! Get out there and grab these products for some humidity hair relief!
