Summer is here and is here to stay!
So are shorts, dresses and a lot of sweating! I’m not a summer person, if you are in Texas you probably are not either. haha.
The heat here is no joke, but we make each summer the best summer of our lives! We go to the zoo, enjoy being outside and spend tons of afternoons/ evenings at the park.
Nonetheless this year for the first time in my life I decided to start exercising. Yes, you read right! I’m usually the person that has never exercise in her entire life, but this year my body and health needed. Plus guys, I’m almost 30 and well there is no going back once you hit 30, or so I heard.
I signed up for Camp Gladiator and if you follow me on IG you have probably seen my stories at 5:05 in the morning with my mat and dumbells! I will share more about the camp in another post, but when I leave there I’m deranged in sweat! Every inch of my body is sweating, well my hair is not able to do the 7-day hair trick anymore. You can read more about that here.
So I’ve had to go au natural! I do this every summer and well this summer started doing it very early!
I’ll explain! I’m not a fan of putting so much heat in my hear but my curly lion mane has other plans most of the year. I try, TRY to look prestable and my mane won’t do! So I straighten or curl my hair once a week when I wash it, but if I do the same thing during summer I would honestly be bald. Not that I even have the time to straighten my long and full hair, so I wear it as natural as possible!
Like I stated above, I do live in Texas and the humidity is one of my biggest mood killers. My hair gets big, like Texas big but not so pretty. So, when Dove contacted me to try out their new Shampoo and conditioner I had to say yes! Dove is known for keeping moisture on the skin and hair and this new shampoo stood by its name! I loved how it made my hair feel! After so much damage from the cooler months and my handy dandy straightener/ wand when I dont use them I want the little product I do use to replenish my hair the most possible.
The hairspray keeps my curls soft yet keeps all the humidity at bay.
All the tips!
- Don’t use a towel to dry your hair. It creates tons of frizz
- Use shampoos that let you conserve a few your natural oils, like DOVE
- Brush your hair as soon as you get our of the shower. Many say dont but for me its a must!
- Mousse is your best friend, but dont over use it!
- If you live in a humid area dont forget the hairspray.
I will be sharing a video on how I get these curls on Wedsnday so stay toned!
