Summer is almost here! As the weather gets warmer, our hair can start to feel drier. Over hydrating, your coils with too many products, irregular maintenance or over manipulation can lead to breakage. This is the season to freshen up your style while lessening exposure to heat, sun and too much stimulation. So, keep these ideas in mind as you head to block parties, family trips and dips in the pool.

Choosing your style

There are so many beautiful styles for different hair types, lengths, occasions and lifestyles. What works for summer camp may not work for a family reunion. A splash of color in your butterfly braids may be great this week, but a flat twist with charms and beads might be the next head-turning look that you want next!
