How to Take Care of the Hair For Spring and Summer

Avoid Naughty Hair This Spring

Have you noticed? The sun is sticking around a little longer these days and the temperatures are steadily rising. Does that mean we should be doing anything differently to take care of our delicate tresses? To find out, I've asked the advice of Herbal Essences stylist Charles Baker Strahan, who has styled the likes of Leighton Meester and Lindsay Price, to name a few.

"Hydration is key as we walk towards warmer weather," advised Strahan. The combination of being out in the sun, flat-ironing, blow-drying, and/or curling, robs hair of moisture, therefore causing hair to react more to the dryness and humidity in the air. "Healthy, well-hydrated hair responds better to heat styling and allows styling agents to do their job more effectively," he said.

To put moisture back into weak locks, Strahan recommends Herbal Essences Hydralicious Shampoo and Conditioner ($4.30 each). "There are three versions so regardless of your hair type, you can get the hydrated base you need," he added. So long, misbehaved manes.

Heh, don't look at me, I could lube an engine with all the oil in my hair. Straight as a stick and greasy as a cheeseburger.

I thought the same thing...sounds like a plug. However, I bought some of the hydralicious as a cheap shampoo / conditioner to leave in the shower at my parents house - and it made my hair look great! super soft and shiny, i was surprised!

I rarely blow dry my hair and rarely flat iron it these days, although I used to be quite the junkie.
