Stylist Nathaniel Hawkins offers hot tips for beating frizz and enjoying healthy summer hair.
When it comes to summer heat, curl protection is a top priority. Celebrity hair stylist Nathaniel Hawkins is an expert on this dilemma and offers some simple frizzy hair remedies for summer.
Whether you want to keep your curls or straighten them out for the season, these tips are a great way to keep your natural locks protected and looking their best under the sun.
Use Oil Treatments Daily
To start, use a hair treatment oil prior to shampooing your hair. Hawkins suggests products such as Ojon Damage Reverse Restorative Hair Treatment, Leonor Greyl Huile De Palme or VO5 Hot Oil Moisturizing Treatment to recharge hair. By using these products before you shampoo, you'll avoid stripping the natural lipid barrier necessary in repelling humidity and excess moisture.
Be sure to apply one of these hair oil treatments liberally to dry hair prior to shampooing and allow them to soak into the hair for a minimum of five minutes. Some products may suggest more time for longer lengths or dryer hair, so be sure to read the information prior to using.
Your hair knows what it needs, and it will absorb just what it needs from the treatment and let the rest wash out.
Try a New Texture
The next of these frizzy hair remedies is creating a new texture. The hot weather is a great time to try new summer hairstyles. Hawkins suggest trying Keratin Earth’s at home smoothing and straightening kit which is a great way to create a sleeker texture.
“This brand new, very simple 4 step process will create a long lasting smoothing effect and will prevent your hair from frizzing no matter the weather or your style,” states Hawkins.
