Beach Styles For Your Summer Vacation

The kickoff to Memorial Day weekend means it’s officially summer season!  And another reason to travel, relax and enjoy beach sands and tans.

Here are some styles that are perfect for the beach or pool & leave you looking chic all day long.

Messy buns are easy, simple and low maintenance.  Grab all your hair in a ponytail as high as you can on top of your head and hit the sands. If some pieces don’t make it in, its cool tuck them in your ponytail holder and you’re all set!

Head Scarf styles are perfect for a very humid day, or when your hair feels like being a little wild! Add scarf to messy hair to pull off a boho chic look.

Side Braids are essential when it’s hot out and it feels good to get the hair out of your face and off your neck. A simple braid is a great way to do just that, and it always looks super cute.  So get to packing and be sure you pack your travel size of our ONE Collection. 

Safe and happy travels!

Drowning in Dryness? Insider to Unleash Shiner Hair

Sunny days are finally here! And nothing beats a beautiful beach day with your favorite ladies. Drifting in the cool ocean waves, sipping your favorite cocktail, and of course, basking in the steamy summer rays. After it all, we seem to regret it at the touch of our dry dull strands — eek!

It’s now time to start thinking about methods to prevent dry, brittle hair during the harsh summer season, and practicing a daily regimen that promotes smooth cuticles and ultimate SHINE.

You ask, where does healthy hair gets its shine? The answer lies in the outer layer or cuticle; with shiny hair, this section tends to lay smooth with all of it’s ‘scales’ lined evenly on top of each other. When layers are tightly sealed, they hold in moisture much longer creating a smooth, light feel and touch. In dry hair, layers of the cuticle tear apart, forcing natural oils to escape. When this happens, the cuticles are more likely to absorb light, ultimately resulting in dull, frail hair.

With a better understanding on causes of dull hair, here are some treatments to cure your hair from dry to a sultry, clean shine:

Weekly hot oil treatments can greatly benefit your hair in a few ways. It smoothes out your cuticles resulting in ultimate shine and battles dryness which can ultimately lead to breakage.

Protein hair treatments work miracles on brittle strands. And it’s because 91% of your hair is made of protein (yes, it’s true). Protein reinforces the hair shaft, creating a stronger shinier look. Paired with our ONE Collection, protein hair treatments binds to the hair cuticle to rebuild weakened sections.

Use of a Greek Yogurt treatment can also brighten and condition your strands.

Rule of thumb: Less is more. Too much oil can cause a long list of issues when it’s time to style your hair. Remember to start small and add more later if you think the first go-round lacked a little shine.

You can now look forward to those beach days without fearing lackluster hair — and your strands will thank you later! And make sure you take advantage of our ONE collection to breakthrough those dry humid days. SHOP NOW.
