Your Best Summer Hair—EVER!
Your Best Summer Hair—EVER!
By: AGOO BENGZON
Summer is here, and you know what that means—more trips to the beach, more time out in the sun and, sadly, more damage to our tresses. But fear not because with the right hair care, you can still maintain gloriously luscious locks even while under the threat of a harsh summer ahead.
First things first, know what type of hair you have.
It’s a mistake most of us make—we use shampoos, conditioners, and hair styling products that look and sound good but we often overlook whether they’re appropriate for our hair type or not. For instance, a heavy hair mask will work for dry, thick, and coarse strands but shouldn’t be used by those with fine, thin hair since it’ll almost certainly weigh down your mane. Have a look at the label, and depending on whether you have an oily or dry scalp, thick or fine strands, and straight or wavy hair, you can make an intelligent and informed choice when it comes to adding summer hair care products to your physical or virtual cart.
We love Aveda’s Botanical Repair Intensive Strengthening Masque: Light because it Intensely repairs and strengthens hair instantly. Formulated for weightless conditioning, this deep treatment is perfect for those with fine hair who crave for nourishment but don’t want to sacrifice volume.
Find ingredients and scents that you gravitate to so that caring for your hair won’t ever feel like a chore.
Whether it’s the sweet notes of vanilla or invigorating fragrance of pomegranate, scent plays a huge role in the frequency of use of a product. The more we like a product for its fragrance, the more likely we are to use it.
Our pick? Revlon Professional’s UniqOne, a green tea-infused all-in-one mask that controls frizz, enhances shine and provides sun protection too! A great plus? Its Green Tea scent—a tangy, zesty citrus followed by aromatic green tea and softened with delicate notes of amber and musk.
Address your most pressing issues with products that work doubly hard and fast.
The number one desire of any consumer is to find a product that delivers results instantly—yet safely, and this is where trusted brands come in. Brands such as Aveda, Serioxyl, Uniqone, Orofluido, Eksperience and Scalp to Hair invest heavily into R&D, so you can be sure that what you’re applying to your precious locks won’t further damage your hair, and more importantly, will address specific concerns immediately.
We trust Scalp to Hair’s Thermal Protector, a sulfate and paraben-free spray that instantly seals the surface of your strands, reduces cuticle stress, friction and hair breakage. This botanical wonder is armed with extracts of Sage, Juniper, Soy, Oats and Eucalyptus so that hair can be protected from high heat and humidity. A must-have at the beach!
