I swear guys, the first thing I did this year when the weather started getting warm was run to get a hair cut. I ended up getting a whole lot cut off and it has been wonderful. Today I’m going to share some tips for taking care of your hair this summer, plus, 3 summer friendly styles to try.
To start, your hair is a part of you- so start from the inside out! Taking vitamins and getting plenty of water are key to helping your hair grow strong. Then, minimize the damage you do with styling- avoid heat and damaging products. I use heat on my hair, so I try to leave a day or two in between washes and styling so that I’m not doing so much damage. However, I know that if I have damage there are products I can count on to help me take care of my hair.
This year I’m loving the Garnier Whole Blends Repairing Hair Care line. I picked up their entire set of Honey Treasures Repairing Hair Care. I stood in the aisle sniffing these new shampoos guys- yep, I was that person. By far the Honey Treasures was my favorite. I love it when a product has awesome ingredients and you can absolutely tell!
I’m using the Shampoo, Conditioner, and the Hair Mask.
Garnier Whole Blends Repairing Hair Care has a luscious formula with the essence of royal jelly, honey, and propolis- providing nourishing repair for damaged hair.
I love giving my hair that little extra boost of repair and the mask does just that- bonus, you put it on in the shower, wait a few minutes, and then rinse it away! No mess and no fuss! I can repair my hair quick and easy as a part of my everyday routine.
The Whole Blends Repairing Hair Care comes in a variety of treatments that are specific for your hair care needs-
Repairing – Honey Treasures
Hydrating – Coconut Water and Vanilla Milk
Smoothing – Coconut Oil and Cocoa Butter
Refreshing – Avocado Oil and Shea Butter
Color Care – Argan Oil and Cranberry Extracts
You can find these collections at your local Walmart, and you can check them out here!
Now, as a busy mama I’m also always looking for quick and easy styles that I can do with my hair- and summer is definitely no exception. One thing I’ve been adamant about lately in an effort to help repair my hair is ditching the pony tail holders- but if you are like me, you will constantly be battling hair in your face and that will just never do, especially on hot days.
You can start by pinning the front section of your hair back- I think everyone has this in their arsenal, it’s easy and simple. You can have a poof at the front or no poof- but this is definitely a super simple solution. However, I have a couple of ways you can dress this up.
Start by taking that front section of hair and instead of pulling it straight back, pull it down some to the side. Make sure to move the hair that is there out of the way- you can use this to cover the pins.
I definitely love doing this and hiding those bobby pins. It’s magic!
You can take it a step further by taking that front little piece of hair on the side and braiding it back, again tucking it and pinning underneath the other hair that’s there. You can do this with long or short hair, which is kind of awesome.
You can also do the braid on the other side as well to really keep the hair out of your face, but another fun way I like to do it is to leave the bulkier side down and just braid and pin the other side.
This still makes it easier for me to see, for sure, but I don’t feel like everything is pinned up. This version is probably my favorite and the most fun to wear.
I use these everyday to avoid pulling my hair up and have noticed a huge difference.
I’ve been feeling like hair care is becoming more important as I get older, so I’m taking steps now to protect my hair.
My last tip is to remember that just like your skin- sun has an effect on your hair, too. You can use a hat or scarf to cover it during long periods in the sun- as lovely as those natural highlights are in your hair that come out, the sun can do some serious damage.
So there you have it! What steps are you going to take to take care of your hair this summer?
