How to Avoid Summer “Hay Hair”
by Dale Janee
‘Dermatologists and stylists agree that there’s little reason to shampoo every day.‘ The same goes for blow drying and straightening. Give your hair a break from the heat as much as you can.
Hair Masks to the Rescue! Makeup and hair guru Bobbi Brown recommends a home-made hair mask for dry summer hair, but we love the 100% Vegan Anti-Fade Miracle Filler by Pureology. It basically fills split ends before you blow dry. Also, the No-Rinse Day Time Hair Conditioner by Rene Furterer is a fave!
‘Wet Your Hair with Tap Water Before Hopping in the Pool.’ While it’s not a drastic fix, this simple trick can protect your hair from soaking in added chlorine and chemicals when you’re swimming.
Summer Days, Satin Nights! ‘A satin pillow case helps keep curls from tangling and won’t soak up natural oils as much as cotton,’ says Ebony Mikila, a hairstylist a Paint Shop Beverly Hills salon. See full article here. At home and one the road, pack a satin pillow like this one from Savvy Sleepers to keep your hair healthy all summer long.
Fake the Beach Babe Look. On hot days by the pool or beach, don’t bother with too many products. Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray is a popular option. If your naturally dried hair is feeling a bit like straw, add some Moroccan Oil and put it in a messy up-do or bun.
