Go With The Flow
“Work with your hairdresser to plan your cut and style seasonally so you can change up your look throughout the year, said Ricardo Dinis, Aveda Artistic Director, Hair Cutting. “In summer, think about your attitude when you’re on holiday, letting your hair do what it naturally does.
“There’s something about being carefree that’s so beautiful. And remember that beautiful hair is healthy hair. One of your best summer allies is a leave-in conditioner like Aveda Damage Remedy™ protecting from breakage.
ALSO USE: Daily Hair Repair ($26.00) – it instantly repairs damage and detangles.
“You have to protect your hair color from fading no matter how much time you spend in the sun – whether you’re on the beach or in the mountains,” said Ian Michael Black, Aveda Artistic Director, Hair Color.
“Color Conserve™ Daily Color Protect ($24.00) is a daily leave-in conditioner that protects against fading with natural sun filters from wintergreen and cinnamon oils. If you go to the beach or tie your hair up a lot, use a coin-sized portion of the Daily Color Protect to smooth out fly-aways and add a layer of protection.”
ALSO USE: Aveda Sun Care™ Protective Hair Veil ($27.00) also offers great daily defense. It’s a lightweight, water-resistant, UV-defense spray that conditions and detangles.
“Both curly and straight hair tend to experience some typical traumas in summer – frizzy, flattened, and weighed down hair,” confessed Allen Ruiz, Aveda Artistic Director, Hair Styling. “Finding just the right product to address your summer styling goals will simplify your life, and your morning routine.”
For straight hair, choose a product that softens and moisturizes while reducing frizz and unwanted wave – one of my favorite combinations is Smooth Infusion™ Style-Prep Smoother™ ($24.00) partnered with Smooth Infusion™ Glossing Straightener ($22.00).
Finish any style with Control Force™ Firm Hold Hair Spray ($26.00) for all-day, brush-able hold and the ultimate in humidity defense.
