Beat those summer hair woes with the help of Butterfly Studio Salon Experts, Kattia Solano and Jennifer Penny!
PROBLEM: DRY AND LIMP FROM CHLORINE/SALTWATER
SOLUTION: Saturate your hair in a conditioner or oil before heading into the water. Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil ($48; Sephora.com) is loaded with Vitamin E and essential fatty acids to condition, nourish, and coat the hair without weighing it down.
For chlorine, wet your hair with fresh water before jumping in so your hair doesn't soak up as much of the pool water and rinse RIGHT after!
- Use Vitamin C (specifically ascorbic acid) because it neutralizes chlorine. There are some sprays, such as Jasmine Night Conditioning Spray ($63; TheOrganicPharmacy.com) that have vitamin C in them to specifically remove the residue left on hair by pool water.
PROBLEM: SCALP BUILDUP FROM SWEAT
- Make a DIY spritzer: M ix a half cup of sparkling water, a half cup of apple cider vinegar, and the juice from a quarter of a lemon into a spray bottle and apply to dry hair from roots to ends until the hair is fully saturated. Massage the mixture into your scalp for a few minutes as it absorbs, then rinse well!
- Follow up with a clarifying shampoo and your favorite hair mask. Philip B Anti- Flake Relief Shampoo ($39; PhilipB.com) provides instant relief and Katira Hair Masque ($44;PhilipB.com) deep treats while fighting humidity.
PROBLEM: FADED COLOR FROM UV RAYS
- Use products with UV protection built right in and to protect your color from fading due to sunshine, whip up a homemade concoction by diluting your favorite lotion or sunscreen with a little water in a spray bottle and spritzing your strands. Try Organic Pharmacy Cellular Protection Sun Screen ($69; TheOrganicPharmacy.com) for UVA and UVB protection!

I have always heard from friends and colleages that Nick Chavez hair products were the greatest they'd ever tried, so of course I wanted a part of that!
Nick Chavez believes in inner glamour. I believe that too, so we were a match made in heaven!
From their website:
" Beauty is about not asking permission, not making second guesses, and not apologizing. Beauty is about pure indulgence"
I had the honor of sampling three of Nick Chavez's newest products:
Ultra Shine Honey Peppermint Shampoo: combines the benefits of honey and peppermint for a rich, deep nourishing formula that gives your hair healthy, long lasting shine and luster. Will freshen your scalp and leave your hair bright, full and bouncy.
Ultra Shine Honey Peppermint Conditioner: will help moisturize and replenish dry or damaged hair from chemical processing or environmental damage. This unique formula penetrates every strand to restore condition and shine, leaving hair renewed and healthy.
Honey GlazeStyling Gel: this one-of-a-kind hair care product provides hold, body and tremendous shine, with no flakes while resisting humidity. Infused with natural honey for a deep, rich, long-lasting shine, this product will enhance the style and luster of any type of hair.
The Peppermint and Honey Shampoo is bliss! I loved the way it made my scalp tingle with the peppermint and the softness brought on by the honey! So minty, fresh and clean!
The conditioner brings a welcome softness and manageability to my stressed out very dry hair. I could run my fingers through it for days afterward.
I add the honey glazing styling gel afterward while my hair is still damp for extra body and shine. What I love about the gel, is that it does not feel weighed down, yet adds that extra polish to my hairstyle. It isn't flaky or sticky!
My two daughters and my sixteen year old son were constantly 'fighting' over who got to have the Nick Chavez products in their shower, they LOVED how their hair felt after they used them:) I think I need to buy this stuff by the gallons!
Buy It for yourself to experience utter hair euphoria, or for someone else as the perfect gift!
