Summer Sizzle - Hair, Skin, Body Must-Haves

Are You Ready for Summer?

As days get longer and temperatures heat up, we find ourselves spending more time outdoors. We bare more skin as we spend daylight at the pool, lake or beach and go for a carefree style at picnics, nature hikes and barbecues. 

This fabulous fun-in-the-sun frolicking can wreak absolute havoc on our hair and skin, and calls for amped up care and protection. In celebration of the start of summer, we've assembled a few must-haves for your summertime regime.   

1. Alterna Bamboo Men's Thickening Gel Lotion is a dual benefit scalp protectant and styling product. Infused with hydrating strengthening pure Organic Bamboo Extract and ultra-nourishing, moisturizing Hemp Seed Oil this gel lotion provides thinning hair with thickening benefits for all-over volume and styling manageability. Formulated with SPF 15 to protect exposed scalp areas from the damaging effects of the sun.  Squeeze a small amount of this weightless, water resistant formula into palms and work into damp hair and scalp. Focus on exposed areas of the scalp for SPF 15 protection and style as usual.

2. Give your body the extra hydration it needs with Coola Moisturizing Body Sunscreen Plumeria, sheer SPF 30 organic sunscreen. To help prevent sunburn, apply generously to the body and face 30 minutes before sunning. Reapply after prolonged water or sun exposure. Formula features an exclusive Camilla Sinesis Liposome Complex, a powerful and deeply penetrating moisturizer that fights fine lines as it soothes, rejuvenates and protects. Vitamin C delivers antioxidant protection, while organic Cucumber and Shea Butter help replenish lost moisture during and after your day in the sun.

3. Anthony Sport Lightweight Face Lotion with SPF 15 for all skin types. When you're on top of your game, you don't need to be weighed down by pore-clogging face gunk. Oil- and lanolin-free Anthony Logistics Lightweight Face Lotion goes on without sticky residue to help slow moisture loss during heavy activity. Contains silk amino acids to enhance water retention, retexturize, and ease the appearance of fine lines.

4. Oscar Blandi Capri Sun Shield Spray protects hair from sun and chlorine damage. Protects color from fading with UV inhibitors. Light formula adds moisture, shine, suppleness but will not leave residue or weigh hair down. Provides a refreshing scent with sparkling notes of melon and lemon, enhanced by an ozone floral bouquet and the warmth of woodsy musk. Spray liberally on wet or dry hair before and during sun exposure. Comb through to evenly distribute but be sure to re-apply after swimming.

5. Create hair that is incredibly smooth and manageable with L'ANZA Leave-in Noni Fruit Detangler. This lightweight, leave-in spray formula detangles, hydrates, and protects hair. A soothing blend of Hawaiian Noni Fruit, Polynesian Botanicals, and unique Healing Actives replenishes essential moisture, and instantly improves comb-ability to provide optimal hydration without heaviness. Hair becomes smooth, manageable and lustrous and added UVA, UVB & UVC protection keeps your locks safe from the damaging rays of the sun. To instantly heal, hydrate & detangle, spray daily into damp or dry hair. Comb through & leave-in styling as desired.

6. IF you're looking for that sexy windblown look or beachy waves, simply apply Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray. 
Excellent for all hair types, it adds body, has light hold and a matte finish. To use, simply work through damp or dry hair; let dry naturally or blow-dry with a diffuser. 

7. Fear the sting of waxing no more with the all new GiGi No Sting Wax. This ultra gentle wax offers Kava Kava within the wax formula, which is a natural numbing agent that, when infused in wax, helps relieve the pain and discomfort associated with hair removal. Designed to reduce the pain of waxing for those with delicate skin or who are prone to sensitivity, the GiGi No Sting Wax formula effectively removes all unwanted hair while keeping you free from pain and discomfort. 

8. Spornette Little Wonder is great for teasing, creating volume or back brushing hair, an essential step for those perfectly amped up ponies.  Elevated colorful Tourmaline enhanced nylon bristles penetrate any hair texture while emitting negative ions for hair conditioning. Adjacent rows of pure boar bristle easily pick up hair and the just-right length tail handle is ideal for picking up hair sections. 

9. Add a little plaited texture to your casual summer 'do with HairDo Pop Clip in Long Rope Braid.  Using a small pressure sensitive clip, the POP Clip-In Braid can be added to your own hair as an accent or added to a hair piece or ponytail. Made with Tru2Life heat friendly synthetic hair that you can curl or straighten using thermal tools at temperatures from 240 up to 350 degrees. Attach to hair and put your hair over the braid to conceal the clip. Try several braids or a contrasting color to your natural shade for impact. Insert into hair and wrap around a bun, ponytail or to make a braided headband. 

Bed Head Flat no Metal Braided Elastic with Studs are funky and fun hair elastics. Create fun pontytails, effortless messy ponytails and artfully tied ponytails with this selection of fun elastics.
