Summer is almost over and it’s hopefully left you with fun memories and a maybe even a great tan…if that’s your kind of thing. Or you could be left with dry and brittle hair from the chlorine, sun, salt water, hair products, and even heat styling. Now, I wouldn’t consider myself a beauty guru. But, more like a beauty realist. I know we come from all kinds of walks of life and different hair types. So, as I sat on my couch reflecting on what I can do to refresh my hair for the upcoming fall season. That’s when I thought I’d reach out to some of my friends. I wanted to see how they bring life back into their locks at the end of the summer.
Then I got the bright idea to host a Facebook Live chat with my little brother from another mother Jeshua (@iamjeshuav). You see, he’s so good at so many things, but he’s especially good at caring for his hair. I call him a hair aficionado. That’s not an official title, but it should be.
I also reached out to a few of our friends and my hair stylist for a few of their personal hair saving tips:
“If a client had dry brittle hair and wanted me to suggest a hydrating product, I’d have to really encourage a system. It’s important for clients to treat their hair as they would their skin! Using one product alone or only once will not remedy the issue.”
Tonantzin recommends and has used brand Colure Richly Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner. She said it’s designed for dry, color treated hair wanting deep hydration and no color fade out. She also recommends the Colure Shine Serum Plus. It can be used DAILY. Apply it after shampoo & conditioning on wet hair to either air or blow dry. Colure Hair Care is 100% vegan and 100% non toxic organic chemistry. Plus it all smells amazing…infused with citrus, papaya, mango, lavender & ginger.
“Going from Summer to Fall, when my hair was out I would get a trim to prepare my hair for the new season. Also because the air tends to get drier going into Fall I would mist my hair once in the morning and then again in the night with a leave in to keep the moisture locked it. I like the Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Leave-In Conditioner. For a clarifying Shampoo I like Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo and Conditioner. And I would always two strand twist my hair post wash to help with breakage.”
“Add moisture to curls by using a leave-in conditioner after shampooing and conditioning. If you have fine hair use a watery leave-in conditioner before applying your usual styler like Curl Keeper Leave-In Conditioner . For kinkier hair use a creamy leave-in conditioner to lock-in moisturize like Shea Moisture’s Superfruit Multi-Vitamin Frizz-Taming Smoothie.”
And you know I wouldn’t leave you hanging either. I’ve teamed with WEN to give three lucky readers a chance to win a pair of products from their Summer Honey Peach collection.
