Protecting Your Hair From The Sun’s Harmful Rays

Just when we got used to the idea of lathering on the sunscreen from our faces down to maybe our ankles, there’s one area we don’t readily include - our hair. As the weather heats up, our precious strands are exposed to the same Ultra Violet Aging and Ultra Violet Burning sun rays as our skin, wreaking all sorts of havoc like depleting it of moisture eventually breaking them. Head off the summer dry hair assault by trying Alterna Hair Care CC Cream, which does a multitude of things, but most importantly provides sunscreen protection and Rene Furterer Paris Protective Summer Oil with sunscreen - easy-to-use and off to the beach you go.

Beware of Heating Hair Tools
Limit the use of hair tools like blow driers, flat irons and curlers as much as possible. As with the sun, it can exacerbate dryness and if done in excess, can make hair weak and break. Search for heat-alternative styles like roller-setting for volume, styles that involve the use of pomades, gels and mousses and hair accessories - anything that puts the emphasis on using traditional tools like a comb, brush and your own fingers to create an awesome summer style.

Incorporate Deep Conditioning Treatments
Moisturizing is nothing new, but during the summer months especially, a deep conditioning treatment should be brought into the mix and done weekly.

Treatments For Different Hair Types
If your hair is on the dry/frizzy end of the spectrum and may even be color-treated - let your strands get the most out of a deep conditioning treatment - one that contains shea butter, preferably, by sitting beneath a conditioning heat cap for at least 15 minutes. Done on a routine basis will encourage elasticity and reduce breakage. Sally Beauty has a fabulous supply of these types of products. The use of a heavy conditioner would be counter-intuitive for other types of hair: fine, normal, oily because it would weigh the hair down, so err on the side of caution.

One of my favorite things about Summer is going to the beach. I love the way my skin and hair feel after a day lounging and walking with my dog on the sand. My skin is soft, sun kissed, and salty and my hair is wavy and thick from the misty air. Add an ice cream cone and a sexy boy and you've got my perfect summer day!

But with hectic schedules comes less beach days and more days spent working or running errands (and to think as a kid I thought being an adult would be awesome. I'd trade my driver's license and rent for biking with friends and going to the movies all day every day any day! Did that make sense?). 
05242013 SKN Beverly Hills Beach House Scrub

Let's start with the shower. SKN Beverly Hills makes a body scrub called "Beach House Body" and it's the fastest way to feel like a beach bum without living on a beach! It uses actual sand, jojoba beads and apricot seeds to exfoliate your skin, leaving you bright and Summer Ice Cream date ready! (Man, is anyone else craving ice cream?) I love the feel and smell of this scrub! I started using it when the North East was still feeling ickish from Winter (aka Spring) and it made me so excited for Summer! And the beach! And ice cream!

05242013 Organix Moroccan Sea Salt SprayNow that my skin was ready, I just had to do something about my long wavy blah winter hair. And I found it! Organix Moroccan Sea Salt Spray & Surf Paste are my summer hair go-tos this year! The Sea Salt Spray is a great quick tool that gives you hair that great natural texture that I thought you could on get at the beach! I give my hair a quick spritz straight out of the shower and let it air dry for my not-really-wavy-not-really-straight tressels to transform into soft, sexy waves. The Surf Paste gives your hair a bit more structure and control, getting rid of flyaways while still leaving you looking natural. It doesn't hurt that they both smell like the beach (minus the dead fish smell you sometimes get).05242013 Organix Moroccan Surf Paste

Even though the weather has just started to feel Summer-ish, I've been enjoying the beach for weeks now thanks to these three wonderful products! Well, I have to go eat some ice cream now!

Golden Goddess!

I love that hint of a tan!! I feel as though I look better & healthier - especially in the winter when you start to get that grayish pallor. I try so many different types of sun free tanners, tan towels, cream for the face or body, sprays lotions etc.

The Infinity Sun – Glow On The Go spray tan is a light weight formula no unpleasant scent, sprayed easily did not dry out my skin I think because it does not contain any alcohol.
