To me, summer congers up visions of blue water, white sand, and a good book. Unfortunately, it also fills my head with less pleasant things such as hair that always feels stringy and like it needs to washed. Here are my favorite ways to keep my hair looking chic, sophisticated AND clean.
Beautiful Summer Hair Tip #1: Cleanse Anywhere & Anytime
Let’s face it, life without dry shampoo isn’t nearly as much fun! The trick is to find a dry shampoo that is best for your hair type and one that has an aroma you love. My hair is very fine and dark, so I must have a dry shampoo that doesn’t leave a telltale white residue behind. Worse case, white residue makes you look like you forgot to brush your hair and best case it takes away all of your natural shine. For me, Kerasilk Repower Dry Shampoo is the ticket. It smells great, absorbs excess oil, and gives me extra volume without dulling my shine. I keep one in my gym bag, one in my beach bag and one in my handbag.
Beautiful Summer Hair Tip #2: Build Beachy Waves
Summer is very forgiving when it comes to “messy” or “undone” hair, so make that work for you! There are many leave-in Beachy Wave products that will encourage curl and texture in your hair. Again, the key is finding the one that’s best for you. I love Living Proof’s Perfect Hair Day In-Shower Styler because it is ideal for just about every hair type. Apply in the shower, lightly rinse and towel dry. Section, gently twist and twirl your hair into spirals, and secure. Let your Beachy Waves Build while you sleep. Release your twists in the morning and you will have carefree Beachy Waves. You can control the volume of your Waves by decreasing or increasing the number of sections that you twist.
Beautiful Summer Hair Tip #3: Have Fun With a Bun
Except for the product name, “Hot Buns” is one of my favorite things. Because my hair is fine, creating the perfect and full bun has never been an option for me, unless I was willing to tease the living daylights out of my hair. Hot Buns makes it so simple! Dirty hair and no time to spare? Brush your dry shampoo through your hair and secure in a ponytail. Wrap the Hot Buns roller around the ends of your ponytail, roll it up and secure. Fan out your hair so that it conceals the Hot Buns roller and you are ready to go!
