Although it’s slowly but surely getting warmer outside, in the beauty world, we can barely get through spring without worrying about summer hair woes. Well, BeautyStat has got you covered! April isn’t even over yet and we have all the steps, tips and tricks to keep your hair looking its best in the summer heat, and how to keep it healthy while at the beach or sitting out poolside.
And we’re approaching summer hair concerns differently this year. Did you know that you should take care of your hair like you face? We’re talking cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize… but in regards to your hair. Don’t believe us? Well, Alterna Global Creative Director Michael Shaun Corby tells us how to get summer hair ready with the brand’s latest products!
Just like your face, your scalp needs constant moisture and exfoliation. The Alterna CAVIAR Clinical: Exfoliating Scalp Facial rebalances moisture to your scalp, while exfoliating for everyday health and maintenance. Active fruit enzymes and exfoliating microbeads control dryness and purify the scalp, leaving a clean, flake-free canvas. Hair is left feeling lighter than ever and oh-so clean!
Apply Your Hair-PF
Your hair needs as much UV protection as your skin, so don’t forget to dose your hair with the Limited Edition Alterna Hair Care Bamboo Beach Summer Sun Recovery Spray, a leave-in conditioner that provides hair with the ultimate revitalization, UV protection and defends against the damaging effects of the sun, pool and saltwater.
And if you want to style your hair for that care-free look, the Limited Edition Alterna Hair Care Bamboo Beach Summer Ocean Waves provides you with tousled waves without the use of drying salt water. It also helps combat the damaging effects of the sun, pool and saltwater while giving you sexy, tousled hair with a gorgeous summer scent — think mangos and coconuts!
And if your hair is a bit greasy by the time you’re ready for the evening bonfire, a few sprinkles of the Limited Edition Alterna Bamboo Beach Mango Coconut Refreshing Dry Shampoo removes unwanted grease, while Color Hold® Technology keeps color true and creates a tousled texture for a fabulous look.
Wet Hair Before Going In Pool/Ocean
Just like sunscreen, apply your Hair-PF every 80-minutes, even when in the water. Before taking a dip, make sure to soak your hair with water. Dry hair is extremely porous, so all that salt water and/or chlorine will get soaked up by your hair and dried out. Run some fresh water through your locks and apply the Limited Edition Alterna Hair Care Bamboo Beach Summer Shine Spray to help combat the damaging effects of the pool and saltwater with Color Hold UVA/UVB protection.
Already dealing with those dry ends? The Alterna CAVIAR REPAIRx: Split Ends Mends is a restorative treatment ideal for all hair types, repairing 93.3% of split ends after just one use. Split Ends Mends strengthens strands and prevents future damage. The Age Control Complex®, Seasilk®, Color-Hold® and Enzymethrapy® formulas work with the Strand-Building Proteins to help keep hair soft and frizz-free, without weighing it down.
Frizzy, Dry Hair & Limp Locks
Your scalp sweats, just like your face. So it’s all about the amount of sebum your scalp produces which determines the state of your hair. Finer hair produces more sebum to protect the scalp from drying out, so it goes limp. Frizzy hair needs moisture, so it expands to latch on to any moisture molecules floating around.
To add some oomph without weighing down hair, the Alterna Bamboo Volume: 2-in-1 Volumizer, an all-in-one volumizing styler, can be used on either wet or dry hair to achieve buildable volume. Use as both a cream (for damp hair) and paste (on dry hair) with natural Potent Organic Bamboo Extract, a hair-strengthening wonder, that restores flexibility and infuses hair with intense moisture and vital nutrients, laying the foundation for healthy, voluminous hair.
And to get your frizzies under control, the Alterna CAVIAR: Omega Nourishing Oil is proven to increase shine by 250% and improve hair’s overall condition by 80%. Natural omega-3 and C22 fatty acids work with Alterna’s patented Age Control Complex®, Seasilk®, Color-Hold® and Enzymethrapy® formulas to combat brittle hair and breakage.
