Five Easy Tips for Maintaining Summer Hair Through Fall {& VO5 Giveaway}

While summer's going strong, many of us are now focusing our attention towards back-to-school, the change of season, and giving birth. Well, maybe that last one is just me.

Summer Hair

As I transition my beauty and hair care regimes, I'll be keeping in mind Alberto VO5 spokesperson Chris Lospalluto's easy tips for maintaining that perfect summer hair into the fall:

(1) Always use color protecting shampoos and conditioners like VO5’s Shea Cashmere Shampoo/Conditioner, especially in the summer to protect against sun fade and as the weather transitions. I've been using the shampoo all summer and it made my list of “Summer’s Best Beauty Products.”

(2) Can't get to the beach as much this month but still want those beach waves? Mix distilled water with kosher salt in a spray bottle. Mist hair all over and scrunch for a surfer, beachy feel.

(3) Want effortless style on those hot, humid days that stretch way into September? Simply twist hair up in a top knot and secure with a hair pin. You’ll look cool and feel cool to have all your hair up and off your shoulders/neck.

(4) Does your curly hair get frizzy during the summer humidity and as the seasons change? Use a heat protecting serum after your shower like VO5’s Leave-In Conditioning Treatment. Let hair dry for some natural volume then use a curling iron and wrap pieces of hair around barrel. This will help polish existing curls and reduce the amount of frizz.

(5) Need a quick fix for naturally limp hair? When blow drying, place a few velcro rollers in your troubled areas. Wrap warm hair around rollers and let cool down. Mist with a little VO5 Perfect Hold Hairspray and take down when ready to leave.
