Hey Everyone!!! Hope you all had a great weekend and if you're dealing with this HOT weather, I hope you stayed cool and hydrated.
Summer weather has finally arrived and although my hair products haven't changed, I wanted to highlight on products/items that are helping my fro through this weather.
I use this spray bottle for my water mixes.
My mixes typically consist of water, rose oil, aloe vera juice and recently added glycerin. Sometimes, I use just plain ole' water and a few drops of rose oil. I spray my hair before sealing.
On really warm days I keep the bottle in the fridge so it can cool my scalp/hair down.
As most of you know, Glycerin is a humectant. It attracts moisture from the air and helps it adhere to your hair.
I added glycerin to my regimen and spray bottle mix because it helps keep my hair ultra moisturized in this hot, humid weather.
Shea-butter has a SPF of 6 which is great for the sunny days. I only use shea-butter when braiding or twisting my hair,
So, if my hair is braided for the week..I use shea-butter to do so. Same for when I set my hair after washing. It's nice and thick, so I don't need to moisturize my hair everyday.
(The brand of Shea-Butter doesn't matter. It only needs to be white, for me to purchase it.)
Grape Seed Oil has a SPF of 4. It is also a very light oil. When I wear my hair out, I usually use either Vitamin E or Grape Seed Oil to seal in the moisture(my spray mix).
Scarves and A LOT of them. I wear a hair scarf just about every day, Not only to add color and spice to my hairstyle, but at times to protect my hair on really hot days.
What are your Summer must haves?
