Summer Hair Care Tips



In the summer, I think it’s important to have natural, healthy looking hair. Whatever your type of hair, it really is best to work with what you have, rather than spending hours with a straightener or curling tongs. Nothing bores me more than fiddling around with my hair, so I came up with a routine that keeps it looking as glossy and healthy as possible, but barely takes more than a couple of minutes.

I used to be very wary of any type of hair product, thinking they were just a waste of money, but over the years I’ve found a few that are now firm favourites and are part of my regular hair care routine. I have naturally wavy hair so generally choose products that help enhance loose curls.

1. Aveda be curly shampoo and conditioner smells great and adds shine to wavy hair. I also love their rosemary mint shampoo.

2. When my hair is still damp, I apply 2-3 drops of Davine’s Absolute Beautifying Potion.

3. As much as possible, I like my to allow my hair to air dry, but if I’m in a rush and need to use a blow-dryer, then before drying I apply a small amount of Kerastase Resistance Ciment Thermique.

4. Once my hair is dry, I often apply a littleĀ Kerastase Soleil Aqua-Seal, which gives a lovely shine and helps to style hair (just twist sections of your hair around your finger for a loose curl).

5. I’ve repeatedly heard rave reviews of Bumble and Bumble’s surf spray, and having a Space NK gift certificate, finally I decided to give it a go. I’m so glad I did! This stuff is amazing. Just comb through a few squirts to either dry or damp hair, and voila you get perfect beachy waves. Flip your hair over your head and scrunch up the roots to get some added volume.
