Summer is here, and if you’re anywhere close to the equator, it’s HOT! With all the heat and impending humidity, our hair just doesn’t play by our rules! Which means it’s time to take control with the right products to ensure your hair is on its best behavior, and of course, protect it and nourish it against sun damage and summer frolics. Here are five products that will protect, tame, nourish, and solve all your summer hair problems.
Frizz Control: Pump Haircare Frizz No More, $22
If the moisture and heat turn your hair from smooth and sleek to a big, poofy state, then this all-natural spray packed with smoothing oils will tame and control. Packed with antioxidants and guava extract, the fine mist adds moisture to hair and protects and smooths all in one. And, it smells amazing as well!
Hair Essential: Moroccanoil Treatment, $15
A good oil is an essential any time of year, but for summer there’s no excuse to skip it. We love to apply a rich hair oil to our hair after gently towel drying it to lock in moisture and seal the hair shaft. Not only does it help tame frizz, but it adds next level shine and softness. This mini Moroccanoil Treatment boasts our fave hair oil, argan oil, which is rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids that nourish the hair and linseed extract to help improve hair health, plus it smells divine and feels weightless.
We also love the HASK Argan Oil Repairing Shine Oil Vial, $3, which is packed with argan oil, grapeseed oil, and keratin amino acids to strengthen and protect the hair follicle. It’s so tiny you can keep it in your purse to tame your hair on the go.
We like to rub two to three drops between our hands, then focus on the ends of our hair, then smooth any leftover oils around the mid-lengths and top of our hair. If you have very thick or curly hair, you can do another layer. Apply to wet or dry hair, or first when hair is wet and then when dry as well.
