Hot Hair for the Summer

May 6th, 2010

Summer is fast approaching and putting everyone in the mood for a hot new hairstyle.  The summer sun can be especially brutal on your locks, especially if you spend a lot of time in a pool or on the beach soaking up the rays.  In order to preserve your tresses, consider going for a beachy tousled look, especially during the day.

Achieve this by towel drying your hair after a shower, and spraying it with a flexible hold hairspray.  There are mouses and other products available specifically for creating this style.  Twist small tendrils around your fingers to form the loose waves and let your hair air dry naturally. It’s sort of the “messy on purpose” type of look.

If you try to save your hair from the damaging effects of the natural heat, you can continue your love affair with the hair straightener for evenings out or days will you need a little extra help controlling the frizz.  As always, try to use a shampoo that is specific for heat-treated hair and look for a thermal protection spray prior to using a hair straightener.
