Summer Frizz is Not Hot

Summer- a time for pool parties, road trips, and some serious damage to your hair!

In fear of skin cancer, we slather our bodies with SPF, but often leave our hair victim to the same brutal UV rays of the summer sun.

Until recently, my hair seemed to be benefiting from its exposure to the natural elements. It felt soft and it shone, whether I had straightened it or let it dry into my natural curls.

Then, one morning out of the blue, I realized my hair was completely fried. It didn’t straighten without a layer of extreme frizz. I let my hair dry naturally. My curls were frizzy, untamed, and unattractive.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. I abstained from shampoo. I assumed that only using conditioner would restore my hair to its natural, moisturized state. Needless to say, this experiment was a no go.

Now, it’s time to turn to the products. With so many choices out there, I have narrowed down the hair products that have been best reviewed by beauty sites throughout the web.

Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment-$21- This product is made from palm nut oil and serves triple duty, promising to act as a deep conditioning treatment, leave in conditioner, and shine enhancer all in one. Ojon’s coconut shaped container is adorable and with multiple uses, it may prove itself to be worthy of its high price tag.

Pantene Pro-V Moisture Replenishing Mask-$6- Apply to wet hair after you shampoo. Wait one minute and rinse. This mask is said to strengthen hair and help resist breakage all in 60 seconds a day. Pantene is the classic drug store solution to all hair troubles. I’m sure they won’t let us down this time.

John Frieda Hair Serum-$9-This leave in formula should be applied to post-shower hair that is still dripping wet. The serum is said to zap frizz, repel humidity, protect hair from the sun, and create a healthy, glossy glow. I’m putting my money on this one. After all, John Frieda was the one who started the whole Beach Blonde/Brilliant Brunette sensation in hair products.

Shisheido Refreshing Sun Protection Spray SPF 16-$26- Dual use spray that is suitable for body and hair. The bottle can spray scalp and hard to reach areas on the head conveniently and does not leave a sticky residue. Since this spray is water resistant, it may be a one stop shop when looking for beach products.
