Karine shares her top ten tips for taking care of your hair as warmer climates arrive.

Tip 1: Protect

Protect your hair when you’re at the pool or the beach by keeping a small bottle of conditioner in your bag. Use it as sunscreen every time you get out of the water by applying a small amount to your hair, keeping it healthy and shiny.

Tip 2: Morning curly hair

Like your skin, hair needs to settle 20 minutes after waking up, so be sure to let it in, don’t even look at it. Then gently scrub the hair with lukewarm water and finish with a light spray of cold water to set the curl and prevent frizz.

Tip 3: Morning hair

Just like with curly hair, leave it on for the first 20 minutes, and once set, the previous day’s style should bounce back and you’re good to go.

Tip 4: beach look

For those with straight hair who want a beachy look, braid hair into four to six braids around the head and smooth with leave-in conditioner before bed. In the morning, take out the braids and scrunch a small amount of curl memory gel through the hair to hold them in place.

Tip 5: Clean Blondes

If you have blonde hair and don’t like the way purple shampoo changes your color, charcoal shampoo is a great alternative. It’s amazing to keep the color fresh without being too brassy.

Tip 6: neat curls

The Keep Curl range from Organic Color Systems is ideal for neat curls. Use shampoo followed by Spritz treatment, after 15 minutes rinse and add Keep Curl conditioner. Wash out ¾ of the conditioner and finish by removing excess water and apply Keep Curl Memory Gel, twisting hair section by section. To finish, add argan oil and let the hair air dry or diffuse gently without moving the hair too much.

Tip 7: Summer volume

To create long-lasting volume even in the heat of summer, prep your roots with a memory gel spray. Using your fingertips, rub the roots vigorously during application. Follow that by drying hair as usual and the volume will stay even in the humidity.

Tip 8: loop control

In the humidity it is extremely important to control your curls. Add a small amount of curl control product between fingers and smooth through very damp hair while twisting. Let the hair dry naturally.

Tip 9: Reduce the fade

Summer will take its toll on beautiful colors, so be sure to keep the moisture in the hair by using a leave-in conditioner, especially on the ends. If you’re worried it’s too heavy, mix a small amount in water and spray on hair.

Tip 10: Split ends

Explanation: To keep the ends healthy, it is important to cut them. A dust cut is a great way to get rid of unwanted split ends, getting rid of the fray.
