Though it’s not officially summer yet, it’s definitely not too early to start thinking about ways to refresh our beauty routines to adapt to changes in the season. And while many, myself included, focus on how to keep their skin looking healthy and glowing, not everyone remembers the importance of taking care of their hair as well. I’ve always been one to wash and air-dry my hair as often as possible, especially in the warm-weather months, believing that the less additional heat I use, the less dry and damaged my hair will be. But now that we live in the South, there’s a whole new set of haircare obstacles to overcome, including added humidity and heat, which I’ve found creates annoying, unwanted frizz and dryness. After exploring different options, I came upon the realization that I really needed to switch-up my basic daily hair routine to add more moisture. But this left me worried about ending up with strands too slick to hold a curl or style.
I decided to revisit some past favorite haircare products and found the Kérastase Nutritive Masque Magistral to really stand-out. This hair Masque left my hair comfortably soft, while not stripping away shine, or leaving my hair feeling too fine, which can really get in the way when I want to wear my very heavy, straight hair in an updo. I’ve been using it now once a week and must say that, between heat styling, spending time outdoors and in the pool and ocean, I’m really impressed by the way the Masque seals in the perfect balance of added nutrients and moisture to help prevent dryness without weighing my hair down. So now I can create sleek low ponies, twisted knots or braids without fly-aways and without having to worry whether my style will hold all day. An added plus is that I’ve noticed that my hair still looks great, whether curled or air-dried straight, after wearing one of my favorite hats all day. Really, no flattening, matting or static. Loving these new summertime beauty routines!
