Let's face it, if we have to suffer in the heat for that outdoor wedding or summer barbecue we want to look cute doing it. Here are five ways to keep your locks looking great throughout the summer season.
Braid your hair in a loose french or side braid while you swim & lounge. Let the braid dry as much as possible before taking it out. Salt water + braid = the perfect beachy look. For a little added control and texture, pack a sea salt spray in your bag. Scrunch into your hair after removing the braid!
(Don’t know how to braid? No problem! Just use a sea salt spray or wave activating product on your wet hair. Scrunch in and air dry.
Wrap large sections of your hair around a curling iron or wand (select the size depending on your hair length — the larger the barrel the looser the wave), leaving about 1.5-2inches out on the ends straight. Repeat this around the whole head alternating the direction of each curl for a messier undone appearance. Finish with a texturizing product for that just off the beach look.
If you don’t like the salty feel but want the texture: Moroccanoil Dry Texture Spray
Try tying your hair up in a loose top knot on your way to work. Simply flip your head over and gather your hair into a ponytail. Twist your ponytail up from roots to end and wrap into a bun. To secure use bobby pins. A tight hair tie or clip will dent that beautiful blow-dry. Have a travel size dry shampoo on hand to use when you arrive at work to restore some of that volume you may have sweat out and give your hair a fresh scent.
Recommendation: Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo
It's true, hair needs sunscreen too! Use a product with UV protection before the beach or pool. Argan oil has a significant amount of UV protection, and luckily every product in the Moroccanoil line is infused with it. Before you head out try spritzing Moroccanoils' Glimmer Shine over your hair. Not only will it create incredible shine but will protect your hair from the sun, salt, and chlorine.
Lucky for us, braids are in, and the more disheveled they look the better! Create a part wherever you prefer and pull all your hair to one side. Create a regular three-strand braid or if you can, a fishtail. Secure the end with an elastic, and hold the bottom of the braid firmly In place. Starting on one side from the bottom and working your way up, pull each section of the braid out slowly. After you finish one side complete the same step on the other side. You can make it as loose as you want.
For a neater braid: Braid your hair when it's wet.
To make it more formal: After pulling the braid out, use bobby pins to secure it up into a beautiful side bun.
