Do longer summer days and warm glorious nights make it downright impossible for you to spend hours fixing up your hair indoors? Don’t worry, we’re right there with you.
With so many outdoor fun-tivities finally available, who wants to spend hours primping and prodding before every beach trip (and the occasional midnight tryst?)
“But I hate my <insert texture> hair!” you argue. “If only it could be more <insert hair type you emulate>.”
Unfortunately, we can’t do anything to change your hair texture. But we do have a few tips and tricks up our sleeves on simple swaps that will leave your loving your hair in all its natural glory.
DAB ON THE DRY SHAMPOO
Over washing your hair strips it of natural oils, leading to broken follicles. We’re all for saving time so quit washing your hair more than twice a week! You’ll reap 2x the benefits with sexy day-after hair and more time to sleep in after a long night out on the town. If your hair is prone to become greasy between washes, opt for a dry shampoo to soak up residual oil.
BLOW DRY FREQUENTLY?
LEVERAGE A LEAVE IN CONDITIONER
This one hurts us as much as it hurts you. While we would never turn down a salon-style blow out, look up the definition of dehydrating and you’ll see a picture of a blow dryer. Seriously, blow dryers literally remove water from your hair! The next time you want to give your hair some lovin post-shower, apply a few drops of a leave in conditioner. We love the InstaNatural Argan Leave-In Hair Treatment.
FLAT IRON/CURL REGULARLY
SPRITZ SOME SALT SPRAY
Yes we’re pointing at you, flat iron abusers and curling wand addicts. Repeated use of these handy tools cause swollen cuticles, split ends AND broken hair follicles. On top of that, all it takes is one strong wind to ruin those perfectly tamed locks. Save time and embrace mother nature by spraying all over with a texturizing salt spray pre-beach trip. In a pinch? Try this recipe to make your own.
This summer season, we implore you. Ditch that complicated routine and fall back in love with your natural hair. You’ll be saying hello to beautiful beachy waves and sun-kissed skin in no time.
Now pass the margaritas please.
