Top 5 hairstyling tips for the summer
1. Know your hair texture and work with it, not against it.
The summer has extreme weather – from humidity to dryness – which affects your end result. If you have naturally curly hair, this may not be the season to straighten it.
2. To be on trend, try a ponytail.
From sleek and high to pinned down and accessorized to low and loose with extra body, this is fun, easy and a great way to take a bad hair day and make it good again.
3. Set up your base.
Using a great shampoo and conditioner, like the new Herbal Essences Honey, I’m Strong line, which provides a perfect base to create any look by restoring hair’s outer layer to make hair silky strong. Herbal Essences Honey, I’m Strong Shampoo coats each strand of hair, helping to seek out damaged areas and prepping hair for the conditioner, while also nourishing the hair. Herbal Essences Honey, I’m Strong Conditioner attaches to hair, smoothing the cuticle to help make hair easier to comb through, keeping hair strong against damage. Properly prepping your hair will help give you more predictable styling results.
4. Summer is the time when we find frizz.
To fight it, the Herbal Essences Touchably Smooth Anti Frizz Creme, helps protect against weather elements to fight humidity for up to 24 hours. It is light and can be used as a styler or a finsher.
5. Braids are another way to add style to a look that may have gotten a little out of control and is a little bit different than just a ponytail.
Keep it loose and messy to avoid looking like a girl scout. Whether a long braid to a fishtail to just braiding the fringe out of your face to just keep yourself cool from the summer heat, it will make you look cool no matter what.
