Summer Essentials for a More Radiant You

Summer means sun, sand and surf – I live for it, it’s my favorite season and the time when I feel most connected to my true self. As the weather warms and we spend more time outside immersing ourselves in nature, we feed our mind, body and soul – there is nothing more invigorating.

More summer also equals more skin, and I’ve compiled a list of my summer essentials to reveal a more radiant you, a more confident you.

Wrap it up with the Hubalou Hair Towel

I’ve added and extra step to my hair routine that is actually saving me time, preventing damage, and freeing me of frizzies! As a curly girl, I’m always on the lookout for new products and styling methods that promise to tame my curls and the sometimes untamable frizziness that comes along with it. Remember when Lauren Conrad told us to wrap our hair in an old t-shirt? I obliged, I tried microfiber towels, white t-shirts, grey t-shirts, ones with stretch and ones without, but the end result wasn’t anything great. Not to mention I couldn’t quite keep the shirt on my head. Then the Hubalou Wrap* came in to my life and I finally fell in love with the hair wrapping method.

For the Curly Girls – Get it straight and keep it that way!

The no-frizz line from living proof weightlessly blocks humidity 70% better than silicone and oils. Living proof uses a “miracle molecule, OFPMA which eliminates frizz by blocking humidity, smooths without weighing hair down, and repels dirt to keep hair cleaner, longer. OPFMA adheres tightly and uniformly to the hair shaft, smoothing and sealing the cuticles, allowing for a long-lasting humidity resistance and supremely sleek strands, The best part is that you can never overuse No Frizz and with each use your frizz defense strengthens.” (from livingproof.com)

What some people may not know about me  is that my hair is naturally curly, not wavy, but kinky curly. The saying usually goes “you want what you don’t have” and in my case this rings true when referring to my frizzy, unmanageable curls. You will almost never see me with curly hair. While I don’t have much of a problem achieving and maintaining my straight hair in the cooler weather, once the humidity stikes, forget about it. I can blow-dry and flat-iron my hair till its pin straight, but once I step outside the humidity in the air springs my curls right back. So in the past I have been a big fan of buns, braids and hats come summertime. That is until I discovered this product.

No Frizz Styling Cream by Living Proof has changed the game for me. I can now straighten my hair and keep it that way in any weather, until my next wash. This styling cream locks out moisture and keeps the frizz away while also making my hair feel silky-soft and weightless. I have been faithful to this product since I discovered it three years ago at my local Sephora. I have never strayed and was hardly impressed when I underwent a Brazillian Blowout. This product also speeds up the blow-drying process, drying your hair faster and getting straighter in less time. You could skip the flat-iron.

Living proof states that “you can’t use too much” which is completely accurate. I have never applied too much of this product, my hair never feels heavy or full of product. I apply about a quarter-size amount or slightly more to damp hair and comb through, then blow dry my hair in sections. My hair remains straight and frizz-free all day long. I highly recommend this product to not only those with curly hair but to anyone having trouble fighting frizz. This styling cream is outstanding and this review is 100% honest.

You can get it at Nordstrom, Sephora, or LivingProof.com
