Summer is the best time to try out braids, waves and other fun styles. However, the sun and the sand can be a burden to the hair. These John Frieda Hair Care products are necessary to protecting and styling your hair.
John Frieda Luxurious Volume Full Hydration Detangling Mist ($9, Ulta.com)
Sand and salty water after a day at the beach can leave behind quite a few hair knots and tangles. After washing your hair, spray the Luxurious Volume Detangling Mist liberally throughout damp hair to help untangle any knots.

There only 36 days left until summer! If you’re like me, you’re itching to get outside and feel the warm sun on your skin. However, with the fun in the sun attitude comes the responsibility of using SPF. At this point, we all know that protecting our skin from the sun is a priority, but it’s equally important to protect your hair from harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Does your current haircare routine contain any SPF? If not, you should consider switching to products that incorporate UVA and UVB protection to avoid a dry scalp, brittle locks, and color damage. ColorProof, a vegan hair care brand who fuses the finest botanicals with advanced technology, has selection of products that can easily be incorporated into your daily mix of products, providing you a flawless finish and coverage all summer long.
The RadicallySmooth Anti-Frizz Serum instantly provides a smooth finish for long-lasting, frizz-free style with full spectrum UVA/UVB color and heat protection. Featuring Camellia and Abyssinian Oils, this creamy serum will seal hairs' cuticle and provide intense surface smoothing and a silky shine. For all you curly girls, the TruCurl Anti-Frizz Oil will not only give your curls structure with revolutionary polymers, sugar cane and seaweed, but also provide long lasting shine and protection from the sun with UVA / UVB protection.
With the summer, also comes humidity, and the one product that you NEED to try is the HumidityRx Anti-Frizz Weatherproof Spray which will weatherproof your hair, lock out humidity and repeal moisture, providing frizz-free protection all day long. This summer, get out there and have the time of your life and remember if you don’t care of your locks, no one else will!

Let’s face it, now that the motivation of tiny bikinis and warm summer afternoons has passed, our normal beauty routine tends fall behind. However, regardless if you’re hitting the slopes or in hibernation mode this winter, it’s crucial you keep up with a few beauty rituals regularly.
Below are three beauty rituals our industry pros say you should be continuing ALL year, no matter what the season may be:
- Don’t Skimp on Sunscreen. Don’t be fooled by lower temperatures, overcast skies or rainy days. UV rays are just as strong when hitting the slopes as they are on the beach. “The easiest way to prevent sun damage and protect your skin is to apply an SPF of at least 30 every day - not to mention, look younger. Reapplying every 2 hours if in the sun is critical as well” says Dr. Nussbaum, Dermatologist and Brand Spokesperson for Sebamed.
- Use Hair Masks Regularly. Do you color your hair, straighten it a few times a week or use a lot of hair spray? Adding chemicals, applying heat or using products are habits that we all find hard to kick, and can come with some unwanted side effects. Anna Urban, CEO of AVIVA™ notes that “you should be applying a hair mask like Aviva’s Hair Rescue Renewal Masque 1-2 times per week to repair damage and restore elastic, while replenishing the moisture which often depletes from dry summer heat and the cold winter air.” ($29.95, AvivaHair.com)
- Wax Even Through Winter. Let’s face it, as the temperature drop we are inevitably becoming a little bit lazier with our normal waxing routine and the motivation for tiny bikinis and warm summer afternoons pass. Noemi Grupenmager, founder and CEO of Uni K Wax Centers notes that “maintaining regular waxes year-round will benefit you in the long run because waxing weakens the hair follicle, causing hair to grow back slower, lighter and thinner over time. Dry, winter hair is more likely to break when waxing, causing it to grow back faster and thicker, so you want to keep skin hydrated and healthy (ie. drink lots of water and exfoliate regularly.)”
My Thoughts: I can relate to all of the above! I especially love to give my hair (the hair on my head, not on my legs) a little extra TLC during these colder months. My hair gets unbelievably dry and brittle in the winter.
My favorite products for taming my frizz and keeping my hair soft, shiny and manageable are the Aviva’s Hair Rescue Renewal Masque which I use once a week. It leaves my hair very silky and revitalized.
Right after washing my hair, I always apply Aviva's Anti-Frizz Keratin Renewal Serum. I distribute it throughout my damp hair and just let it air dry. My hair is left with amazing shine and beautiful bounce. It looks very healthy and feels soft and smooth. I am in love with this product!
