Summer locks: my picks for summer hair products

So between chlorine, the sun, heat (temperature and hot tools), and sweat, summertime can be quite harsh on your hair. I have a lot of hair products but there are a few that I regularly use on a daily basis whenever I do anything to my hair.

Dove Style + Care Amplified Mousse

If I want an extra bit of volume, I will apply this mousse to the roots of my hair fresh out of the shower.  I have a few mousses but honestly I prefer this one the most as you don’t need a lot of it and it really does do it’s job.  For the most part in the summertime I will usually just air dry my hair but if I want some major volume I will apply this prior to an at-home blowout.

Kiehl’s Heat-Protective Silk Strengthening Cream

If I am going to blow dry my hair I will often apply this product closer to the ends.  I know that Kiehl’s is mostly known fro their skin care, but honestly every hair product I have tried from them has been great.  This stuff also leaves your hair nice and shiny, not to mention soft.

Redken Nature’s Rescue Radiant Sea Spray

This is a product that I usually only ever use in summertime as it is a hair fragrance that leaves your locks smelling like the ocean. I mean it’s not the same scent to a T but it leaves your tresses scented like beach.  The best part?  Whenever you toss your hair around it sends off a scent burst.

Schwarzkopf Essensity Natural Shine Serum

If I choose to straighten my hair I will often apply a shine serum to finish off the look.  I have really been loving this one from Essensity as it looks like a cream once out of the pump but leaves your locks smooth and shiny.

Dove Anti-Frizz Serum

I am seriously obsessed with this stuff.  I don’t really have frizzy hair to begin with, but I will apply this to damp hair and it just leaves my hair looking nice, soft, and manageable.  Typically I use two pumps of the product and then apply it closer to my ends.  I cannot recommend this enough.

Kiehl’s Olive Fruit Oil Deeply Repairative Hair Pak 

I have tried a few hair masks but honestly, nothing compares to this one.  Apply this to damp hair after you shampoo, leave it in for five minutes, and your hair is so smooth.  I don’t use this everyday, but if I feel like my hair is feeling a little coarse I will apply this stuff and my hair will be back to looking smooth and healthy-looking in no time.  I did use this right after I highlighted my hair blonde (I basically went from black to blonde highlights which is very damaging) and after a few uses my hair went from dry and brittle to soft and manageable.
