Summer Hair Tips!

I love beauty tips. Especially if they work, if they're easy for my busy schedule, and they're not too expensive!!

My grandmother has used Suave products for as long as I can remember. I always enjoyed the smell of her hair. Recently Suave came out with a professional line of products at the same reasonable price!

We use kids Suave 2-in-1 shampoos for the kids. They like the bright bottles and yummy scents. Plus, they aren't expensive. My kids do not like washing their hair as it is. Making it fun really makes a difference.

I run every single morning with long runs on Saturdays. I'm hoping to start training for a triathalon soon. My hair is taking a beating!! Some days I rush home from my run, wash my hair, get dressed for work, get the kids ready for school, and get to work with dry, funky hair that either dries in the car or goes into a bun. I've tried a variety of shampoo/conditioner combinations. I've even gone with the more expensive brands and professional products. It's hard to find the right one for me.

Recently I tried Suave's Professionals Sleek Shampoo and Conditioner. I noticed a difference. My hair had less of that weird flyaway look it usually has.

Make sure to check out Suave's web site. There is a really cool beauty profiler just for busy women. My profile suggested a clarifying shampoo and the Sleek Shampoo/Conditioner combination which I'm currently using. I really like it a lot!!

Summer Hair Tips from suave:


Help Your Hair Survive the Summer in Style with Tips & Tricks from Suave® Celebrity Hairstylist Luke O'Connor

Shine Through Summer

Chlorine from the pool can quickly turn hair dry and dull. Look for hair products specially-designed to infuse shine. Also, blow dry hair from roots to ends, making sure you do not ruffle your hair. By doing this, you’ll keep the cuticle of your hair lying flat, thus reflect more light, and producing more shine.

How to get the Shine: Suave Vibrant Shine Shampoo and Conditioner is formulated with silk amino acids to restore shine and luster to dull hair for bright, shimmering strands.
Price/Availability: $1.92 – 2.49 at drugstores, mass merchandisers, and supermarkets nationwide

Don’t Let Your Hair Fall when Temps Rise!

Hot summer weather and humidity can cause your hair to lose its shape. Apply a little mousse to damp hair to add body and help control your style. For added fullness, flip your head over and blow dry the roots. When you flip your head upright, your hair will be at maximum volume.

How to get the Shape: Suave Professionals Extra Hold Mousse helps to lock in style for all-day hold and is great for hair that needs body and control.
Price/Availability: $1.92 – 2.49 at drugstores, mass merchandisers, and supermarkets nationwide

Hold That Look

Heat and humidity can be tough to battle, and here’s where the right hairspray comes to the rescue. To keep a soft, full, long lasting look, use an extra hold hairspray and keep the can 8-10 inches away from your head while spraying all over. This allows the fine mist of spray to penetrate the roots and hold the hair in place.

How to get the Hold: Suave Professionals Extra Hold Hairspray helps to lock in style for all-day hold and helps to control fly-aways.
Price/Availability: $1.92 – 2.49 at drugstores, mass merchandisers, and supermarkets nationwide

Make Summer Styling Smooth Sailing

Frizzies and fly-aways suddenly appear during the summer months with humidity at an all-time high. Achieving frizz-free hair starts in the shower with a shampoo and conditioner specially formulated to fight frizz. When blow drying hair, again be sure to blow dry from roots to ends to smooth the cuticle.

How to get rid of Frizz: Suave Professionals Sleek Shampoo and Conditioner moisturizes and smoothes curly, frizzy or dry hair leaving it looking salon-smooth and healthy.
Price/Availability: $1.92 – 2.49 at drugstores, mass merchandisers, and supermarkets nationwide

Fight the Fade

Have color-treated hair? Lock in your color and keep hair healthy during the summer by protecting your hair with products designed to fight the elements, such as color-protecting shampoos, waterproof gels, and UV protectors.

How to fight the Fade: Suave Professionals Color Care Shampoo and Conditioner has a gentle formula that nourishes and defends hair against harsh environmental elements and helps protect color from fading.
Price/Availability: $1.92 – 2.49 at drugstores, mass merchandisers, and supermarkets nationwide
