Summer hair care is so crucial! Spending days in the hot sun, salty ocean and playing with new styles.. well let’s just say I need all the help I can get. Today I’m spilling all my hairy secrets on my current Summer faves.
Kristen Ess Purple Shampoo-great price + works so well. Leave on for about 10 minutes once a week to get the full benefit.
Redken Conditioner– Great for dry hair.
Unite Hair Masque– I sleep in this once a week + use for a few minutes once a week when I’m in the shower. Rj has even noticed a difference in my hair texture/softness.
PREP: I put all three of these in my hair straight out of the shower. I then brush through with my Wet Brush.
Joico Blonde Life– Multipurpose spray that helps protect from UV, reduces frizz, helps with shine and softness. My hairstylist Julie said my blonde has been holding up better than ever and I think this is why.
It’s a 10 Spray– Also multipurpose, this helps incredibly with protecting from heat. I use it on wet hair but I also will use it on dry hair too, if it needs some extra moisture. I spray a couple pumps in my hand and run on dry ends.
Kenra Platinum Silkening Gloss– This stuff smells like CANDY and I’m obsessed. It basically does the same as the others, but I like the added protection and great smell. I use three pumps, focusing on my ends, on wet hair or I will add some to dry hair, like I do with the ‘It’s a 10’.
STYLE: These are the tools I use and products I use on dry hair!
1907 Fromm Blow Dryer [c/o]- Although I received this blowdryer as a gift, I truly love it! I’ve even had friends purchase it after using it at my house. It’s lightweight, gets the job done quickly and is a great price.
Kristen Ess Texture Spray– Although I like my hair to be soft, I also need texture (especially the first day I wash it) or it’s like a pancake on my head hah! I have found that this Kristen Ess spray is a dupe for the Oribe Texture Spray but with a much better price. I spray it all over after blow drying but before curling.
GHD Curling Iron– I’ve used a few different curling irons, specifically a T3 that seems to have a cult following, yet this one is a million times better. It’s easy to use, heats up in under 30 seconds and doesn’t leave a crease in your hair! I recommend this one a million times.
Aquage Beyond Shine Spray– I use this as a finishing spray to add a little extra sheen!
Small Clear Elastics: I stock up on these tiny little bands because they are perfect for so many styles! I use them for fun braids, double buns, ponytails and more.
LIFESAVERS: Dry shampoo is 100% my BFF. I use it so often and I have found these are my three favorite! I will use dry shampoo after a workout, when I’m overdue for a wash or even on clean hair for added texture.
Living Proof Dry Shampoo– Invisible, works well, doesn’t give your hair a build up feeling.
Jet Lag Dry Shampoo– Probably my number 1 choice when I really need help in the dirty hair department. Is completely invisible and adds a good amount of texture to your hair.
Batiste Dry Shampoo– This is my favorite of drug store dry shampoos. It works well and has an excellent scent. I try to use this one after working out, to add a little boost of freshness into my (probably) smelly hair!
Hum Hair Vitamins– I love Hum’s Vitamins and these high potency biotin is no exception. I take them everyday and have noticed a difference in both my hair and nails.
ACCESSORIES: I feel like Summer 2018 is all about the fun hair accessories. I love this trend because ponytails and buns are my go to and these jazz them up! Not a fan of these or want more? This is my favorite place to shop for hair accessories.
Polka Dot Head Scarf– This is such a great piece because it can be worn so many ways, including tied on your purse! I like to tie it around a bun or pony or wear it as a fun, retro headband.
Scarf Pony Tail Holder– This pony tail holder doubles as an adorable scarf. Wear it loose around ponytails, in a cute bow around buns or however your heart desires! I’m tempted to order in all three prints.
Set of Scrunchies– Scrunchies have been resurrected from the 90’s and I’m a happy girl. A fun print adds bold interest to even the most boring outfits. Are you a fan of the return of the 90’s?!
If you try any of these products, you’ll have to let me know! Alternatively, if you have a holy grail product I need to add to my list, PLEASE let me know. I love testing out new products. XO
