Everyone believes that summer may bring glorious visions of natural highlights and that sexy beach hair look that we all want to achieve. Though, the reality is that the summer sun, spiraling hot temperatures and related humidity may damage your hair’s cuticle resulting in dry, drab, split, brittle or frizzy hair and ragged ends. Riccardo Maggiore from the Riccardo Maggiore Salon believes you can have healthy, beautiful hair during the summer months if you know how to properly take care of it.
Maggiore Riccardo (www.RiccardoMaggiore.com) Summer Tips:
For fine hair, long layers are ideal. The layers will create movement and volume. This is perfect for the hot, summer months.
Wavy hair is great for summer; it’s like beach hair without even stepping foot on a beach! Work with that texture and use plenty of moisturizer to emphasize the waviness.
Heavy layers are good for curly hair too. However, you don’t want to over-layer the hair. It should be cut long enough to achieve the desired style.
For thick, straight hair, increase layers to achieve more movement and further thin hair in order to accomplish a look that heavy hair sometimes will not allow.
How can you avoid scalp/part burns?
Try to avoid parts in your hair all together! Use a fashionable headband or scarf to slick hair back. But if you must part your hair, use a sun specific product with a UV protectant, like Riccardo Maggiore Rinnova Texturizer, a unique leave-in treatment which contains sunscreen agents to protect hair from damaging UV rays.
What’s the best way to deal with summer dryness?
Summer sun and heat can cause major dryness to hair. The key is to moisturize! Put tons of moisture in your hair. Use moisturizing shampoos, deep conditioners, leave-in conditioners – anything that will maximize moisture.
If you plan to hit the beach or pool, apply oil or a product with SPF to the hair. This will create a “seal” that will protect and prevent salt water, chlorine or sun to penetrate and cause damage.
What’s a great tip for dealing with summer frizzies?
Find a product that will help combat frizziness, like Riccardo Maggiore Luminoso Anti Frizz Drops, a glossy finishing product that helps to smooth and seal the hair cuticle, offering a radiant luster while eliminating the frizzies and static electricity.
The best way to control curls during the summer?
The best way to control natural curls is to use products that moisturize. Use a moisturizer, like leave-in conditioner, to produce long, flowing curls, and heavy product, like gel, to produce tighter curls.
Is this chilly winter weather drying you out?! No time to run to the salon before New Years Eve? Well guess what…you have a secret weapon to heal dry hair in your kitchen cupboard! Olive oil and mayonnaise isn’t just good for cooking, they’re an excellent moisturizing treatment for your hair and scalp. Here are fabulous tricks from stylists Josh Rosebrook and Robear Landeros at LA-based salon The Parlour on 3rd.
To do an olive oil moisturizing treatment From The Parlour on 3rd Master Stylist Josh Rosebrook:
1. Take 1/4 cup olive oil and pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds.
2. Part your hair into four sections and apply the warm olive oil to your scalp, section by section. Make sure to work the olive oil from the scalp to the ends of your hair.
3. Put a plastic cap on your hair and let the olive oil work its magic for 30 minutes.
4. Remove the cap. Shampoo, condition, and style your hair as usual.
Healthy Hair Mask From The Parlour on 3rd Stylist Robear Landeros:
The easiest, cheapest, and most effective hair mask secret known to stylists is mayonnaise. Who would have thought? Mayo is composed of egg yolk, lemon juice and vinegar, which can strengthen and moisturize your hair. Avoid commercial brands. Stick with organic for best results. Place a plastic bag over your hair after you apply. Leave it on for 30 minutes. If you don’t mind smelling like a ham sandwich, the end result is worth it!Filed under Hair | Comment (0)
My trusty Emjoi epilator has been with me for almost 10 years. I got it for $99. Now I cannot believe how inexpensive it has gotten and how many different newer and improved models there are, especially at this sale at HauteLook right now. If you are looking for an alternative way to get rid of unwanted hair besides shaving and waxing, I strongly recommend Emjoi epilators. You can pretty much use it anywhere on the body, even on bikini lines (although I’m too chicken to try it because of the pain, everywhere else the pain factor’s pretty small).

With all the crazy pregnancy hormones, my hair did get fuller…except it’s not the picture perfect bouncy kind of full but thicker coarser and frizzier variety. Every time I get my picture taken, my eyes just zoom in on the crazy hair! I have so many anti-frizz products at my disposal. One of the best tools is this Living Proof Straight Making No Frizz Styling Cream for Medium to Thick Hair 4 oz ($24). It’s specifically for thick hair like mine. Lately it’s been raining a lot, this cream coats the hair with an extremely effective but thin and light layer to protect it from getting frizzy because of the humidity, keeping the hair velvety smooth and shiny. And what I really like about it is that you don’t have to spend much time styling, unlike other anti-frizz products where you have to use a flat iron or blow dry with a flat brush to get the smooth hair. I just use a small drop on the wet hair and blow dry as normal. But of course you can still use a flat iron and you’ll get amazing results.Filed under Hair | Comment (0)
