Great Product Sun Bum Shampoo and Conditioner.

Summer time means the beach and when you are out sun bathing, surfing or swimming you need a good product to use to clean and condition the hair. Not a product line where you need 4-5 different products to use. That is why I recommend Sun Bum Shampoo and Conditioner.  A soft simple burst of fruit and coconut scents and a rich creamy lathering experience. I also use it as a body wash. Like I said its a daily hydrating shampoo cleanses and helps deliver deep nutrition and intense moisture with a special concoction of Coconut Oil, Banana, and Sunflower Seed Oil.  Clean, light and leaves your hair smelling like a tropical paradise.

 

Sun Bum is a daily revitalizing shampoo that helps deliver deep nutrition, intense moisture, and smoothing to the most difficult-to-manage hair. I also recommend to also use it religiously to lock in hair-color and to keep it looking beautiful. Sun Bum has special blends to help restore lost moisture, repair damage, and provide unmatched humidity-resistant frizz control. Perfect for all hair types. I highly recommend it also as a clarifying shampoo.  You don’t have to wash your hair every day.  But when you do, we use a quarter size in our palms, work up a good lather and then apply directly to the scalp to get our hair squeaky clean and rinse all the oils and sand out.

When You Change Your Hair For Summer

Some of my clients favorite beauty traditions is getting their hair brightened in preparation for summer months. The physical shift never fails to get them excited for cookouts, picnics, and longer days, but they have experienced a mental shift when it comes to maintaining it. While it’s easy for me to see the hours spent at the hair salon as the start-to-finish of their hair coloring process, it’s really just the first step in maintaining healthy, beautiful hair for summer. Here are some idea’s to keep your hair color in top condition.

Bleach breaks down your hair, making it brittle and dry so stay away from protein hair care lines. Although purple and blue shampoos have recently become a popular method of keeping blonde highlights from turning brassy, they can still strip color from your hair. And it can also make you blonde hair color look ashy. Use a color treated shampoo and conditioner.

And just because one brand works for someone else, does not necessarily mean it’ll work as well for yours. So shop around and have a few different hair care lines in your shower.

In general, I recommend switching up your shampoo every 6 to 12 months. Each shampoo has different minerals and proteins so your hair will get a more well-rounded treatment of both when you rotate the brand you’re using.

When it comes to heat-styling your hair, go easy on the strands near your hairline by using a lower heat setting. When you lighten your hair, your strands actually become finer and more fragile. To avoid breakage, don’t run that flatiron over your lightened hair multiple times  (in fact, I highly recommend not using a flatiron if possible and just using a curling iron or wand). If you really need one, try doing a single pass for those hairs that frame your face.

A fresh cut or color is the perfect opportunity to switch up your makeup—I’ve HAVE clients gravitating towards a bold red lip color, as it makes their face look even brighter with their blonde hair! And switch up your outfits as a white top will always make your hair look brighter, and vice versa.  The biggest change I notice in MY  clients after they get their hair colored is how their mood and demeanor immediately lifts—embrace your new hair color and the confidence it gives you!
