Hello lovely people!
One of my favorite styles of all time in the summer is beachy, sunkissed hair!
The whole look, wearing cut off jeans, a cute T-shirt, and golden locks flowing in the wind.
The only downfall to this look is it takes a while to achieve it. Actually being out in the sun for hours a day is sometimes not possible. The other option I tried, maybe 2 years ago was the whole lemon juice trend, and we all know how damaging that actually is for your hair.
I would like to personally apologize to my hair for those tragic couple of months back in the day.
Technically any lightening of your hair is bad, but I found a way to do it without the split ends and the crustiness 😛
Here is my hair color with partial lightening as of tonight .
(Mind you my hair is lightened by hair dye as well as natural sun)
My favorite product to use that helps along the lightening process is the ‘Casting Sunkiss Healthy Look’ by Loreal. It claims to be ‘sunshine in a bottle’ and I actually agree!
The first time I bought this I was sure I fell into a gimick. But as I kept using it I noticed the difference.
I applied it in sections first for highlights in my hair, then applied all over for a fuller affect.
First off, it smells like summer, sunscreen and fresh air. Who wouldn’t want their hair to smell like that?
And secondly, it actually does nourish you hair while adding a sunkissed affect to it.
My other secret weapon with it is using a heat protector if I’m activating it with a hair dryer rather than sunshine. It is so important to protect your lovely locks. (Even if its just a little bit of heat a day it can really add up!)
The heat protector I am using is for colored hair, and it is by AG. It also smells like orange creamsicle, which was an important selling factor for me 😉
Following up the hairdrying, I like to give my hair a good drink, so I am sure to use a hair oil and/or a leave in conditioner. The ones I am using now is the Aveeno Positively Nourishing Leave in Conditioner, and a coconut hair oil by inecto. This just adds a lovely healthy shine to your hair, and a delightful tropical scent.
That is my full beachy hair care routine! I will be sure to keep you updated on any new discoveries!
As always thank you for reading!
