4. Time Those Trims
Now’s the time to get serious about regular trims. Dead ends are one of our biggest summer hair downfalls, and if you let split tips get out of control, you can end up needing a hefty chop later on. Make sure you get strands snipped every six weeks to lose the damage while keeping the length. End still looking frayed? Ask for a 20-minute Recover treatment at the salon to smooth things over.
5. Do the Summer Twist
Long, loose waves are always our go-to style, but heat and humidity can cause frizzy, hard-to-tame hair to rear its head. Avoid an unmanageable mane by opting for a fail-safe summer braid. We like to smooth EIMI Flowing Form through damp hair before drying to create a smoother texture to work with, then braid and twist until your hair is summer-ready. So you can forget frizz once and for all...
6. Don’t Sweat It
Whether you’re island-hopping or city-breaking, sometimes there’s no escaping a sweaty hairline as the temperatures rise. If you’re starting to feel the summer heat, spritz away sweat with EIMI Dry Me. Spray directly onto roots and around the hairline to freshen up hair; absorbing sweat and oil, boosting volume and texturizing hair in an instant. It’s a must-pack for perfect summer hair on-the-go (so you can save the sweaty hairline for hot yoga class...)
7. Postpone Platinum
If you’re thinking of stepping up your shade to a bold platinum blonde, summer might not be the best time to take your icy blonde to the next level. With the risk of chlorine altering your color and the sun potentially zapping your shade, we’d recommend staying with a more sun-kissed, multi-tonal blonde hue during the hotter months to retain your summer hair color. If you do decide to take your blonde shade lighter, be sure to use sun protection for hair and wear a hat to keep your color looking fresh and flawless.
