We’ve got 100 degree temperatures happening in Chicago, and my hair is letting me know how it feels about that. It’s not happy. Every day it’s fighting against extreme heat and sweat inducing humidity. Keeping my hair detangled, conditioned and somehow maintaining some kind of curl pattern has been challenging with this weather. As the heat increases, I find that I need to switch up my products. Here are the products my hair is LOVING this summer – and for the sake of brevity, I’m reviewing them Twitter-style. 140 characters or less!
Oyin Handmade Hair Dew – light and creamy, Hair Dew is giving my hair the moisture it so desperately craves now. Castor + coconut + olive oil + aloe = happy curls!
Koils by Nature Shealoe Leave-In Conditioner – My hair is in LOVE with this. When my curls are frizzy & sad, Shealoe brings my curl pattern back to life! Moisturizing, nurturing, awesome!
Eden Body Works Shampoo – Soothing peppermint, cleansing yet gentle on the scalp. Makes my hair clean but not squeaky or stripped dry. Essential relief for summer heat!
Twisted Sista Different Strokes Serum – For frizz-free shiny curls protected by a UV filter, Twisted Sista serum delivers & then some. For those who don’t mind ‘cones in their curls.
Naturalista Cosmetics Juicy Leave In Conditioner – It smells like cookies & love. Yummy! Shea butter, aloe, castor, jojoba, avocado, hemp, coconut, olive oil & glycerin. I’m in hair heaven!
Those are my summer faves of late! See anything you love, need, or gotta have?
