With blazing temps in full effect, the last thing you want to worry about is styling your strands. Luckily, it’s surprisingly easy to have flawless hair in the warmer months, especially when “lived-in,” beachy styles are always on trend. Check out the top ways to keep hair looking good during the summer.
Ditch the blow-dryer
For those women who dread drying their hair with a round brush, we’ve got good news: Summer is the perfect time to break-up with your blow-dryer. Blow-drying hair in hot weather can lead to unwanted frizz. Instead, because humidity is low and temperatures are high, both ideal conditions for air-drying, it’s best to let your hair do its thing straight out of the shower. To keep frizz and flyaways at bay while defining your natural texture, apply Eleven Australia Keep My Curl Defining Cream to damp strands, then gently scrunch the ends of your hair to activate your natural curl pattern. Finish with a dime-size amount of Eleven Australia Smooth & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum.
Protect your hair from the sun
Much like you should apply an SPF to your face every morning, it’s best to apply a protective leave-in treatment to shield your locks from the sun’s harmful rays. The Eleven Australia Miracle Hair Treatment not only contains UVA and UVB filters, it also protects it from chlorine and heat damage as it adds softness and shine – a must for any season spent under the sun!
Mastering transitional styling
More daylight means more plans on your schedule. To keep your hair looking good without having to restyle it over and over again, opt for styles that can easily transition from day to night. For example, if you plan on laying out by the pool in the daytime, braid your hair in two French braids, then take out the braids and apply a few spritzes of Eleven Australia Sea Salt Texture Spray for effortless, beachy waves for a night out.
While it may be tempting to throw your hair into a topknot to keep cool, try playing around with braided styles instead. Not only do braids look like they required more effort than a topknot, there are so many different types to try. Try a loose fishtail braid for a lunch with the girls, or, disguise second-day strands with tiny braids at the front of your hair for an effortless, boho look.
