Everyone loves summer, but sometimes summer hair isn't quite as easy! Girls, you know what I'm talking about... heat + humidity = frizz galore! That's why I decided to partner with Living Proof and Chicago's Lumination Salon to learn the best way to keep summer hair simple, frizz free, and looking good without all the fuss!
Most of us know that the less you wash your hair the better. Not only because it's healthier for your hair but also, who wants to spend all that time washing your hair when you could be outside enjoying summertime? Not me! Easier said than done... my hair is really fine so, after one day in the summer heat I feel like I need to wash it. That was until I started using Living Proof!
Living Proof takes a different approach to hair care. It's a science based product line created at MIT and it does wonders. The scientists behind Living Proof created OFPNA, a molecule that shields every strand of hair, holding in the good moisture and rejecting bad moisture, dirt and oils keeping your hair frizz free and cleaner longer!
3 weeks ago I went to Lumination Salon in Chicago where Adam gave me a hair cut (pretty sure it's my favorite cut ever... If you live in Chicago you need him to cut your hair!) He taught me all the information I just passed along to you, showed me how to use the products and style my hair for 3 days with only one wash! After Adam explained the science behind Living Proof, I was like, ok, I need this product line! Now, I've been using it for 3 weeks and it's been a life saver! I've even gone four days without a wash and my hair still looks, feels and smells fresh! Keep reading to find out what products to use and how to style your hair for 3 days of unwashed hair this summer!
After you wash your hair and towel dry, use 1-2 pumps (depending on length and thickness) of the Nourishing Oil. This oil is different than most other oils because it replicates your hair's natural oil, meaning it will instantly be absorbed, leaving your hair moisturized, but not greasy. Then, spray the Living Proof Humidity Shield on each layer of hair. It's 100% humidity proof and also works as a heat protectant so it's a double whammy. Then blow dry your hair straight and use a flat iron just to straighten out the ends and any other spots that need it.
If your hair is feeling a little dry, use 1 pump of the Nourishing Oil on your ends (if not, you can skip this step). Then, spray the Humidity Shield on each layer of hair (you will use this every day). Then, use a curling iron or wand to loosely curl your hair. With each strand, curl the opposite way to make sure your curls don't clump together and leave the ends straight. Lastly, use the Living Proof Dry Shampoo to fix any greasy looking areas. Make sure to let the dry shampoo sit for 30 seconds, then you can use your finger to tousle your hair.
Day 3 is the simplest day. We're going to stay curly. If your curls need re-vamping, apply the Humidity Shield on each layer of hair, then add curls wherever necessary. If your curls are still intact you can skip that step. Then, use the Dry Shampoo to remove grease and add volume. Lastly, twist one or both sides behind your ear and secure with a bobby pin.
There you have it! Three days of unwashed summer hair looking fresh and frizz free! Really, it's as easy as 1, 2, 3! Thanks so much to Lumination Salon for my amazing haircut and Living Proof for introducing me to my new favorite line or hair care products! You two have made my hair routine so much easier!
