The summer is approaching and I’m positive that everyone is pumped for the warm weather!! Unfortunately, with the heat comes some wacky weather. How are we to keep our hair looking fabulous all the time? Humidity, perspiration, rain, heat waves…the list goes on! Needless to say, the odds are not in our favor, but lucky for us we have tools to aid us on the days nature wants to bring us down. KMS has different product lines made for everyday styling, and we have a few favorites for summer!! Here are our top picks from Aurelio Salon stylists!
#1 SEA SALT SPRAY
As soon as the question was asked to our stylists about their favorite summer hair product, not one stylist failed to mention Sea Salt Spray. It’s no shock as people want that “I just came from the beach” look. On the Jersey Shore, most are actually coming from the beach, and this product is the perfect tool to create the difference between tastefully styled messy waves and i-may-have-a-dreadlock waves. What we love about this product is that you can use it on any hair type! Curly girls can use it to give added texture and volume to their waves. Straight hair girls can use it for a little grit and volume in their silky hair. Short hair can create pieced, edgy styles and for people with wavy hair, it can go above and beyond. Sea Salt Spray also has versatility. You don’t only have to use it when you’re planning to air dry your hair. It can be used right before a blowout on fine hair! It gives added bulk and makes for great control over styling. Mix with Quick Blow Dry and your entire summer will be a success. ?
#2 QUICK BLOW DRY SPRAY
Speaking of Quick Blow Dry, I would like to introduce our second pick! Quick Blow Dry is the product necessary to EVERYONE, even husbands and boyfriends. WHY? Because you can cut down drying time by 50%!! For those with long hair, this is a glorious thing. Heat protection and conditioning agents concoct themselves together with a moisture separating technology to create soft, protected, and quick styling! So in case you are still wondering why this is a valuable product for husbands and boyfriends…. LESS time spent getting ready! He no longer has to wait a half hour, but only 15 minutes. And that my friends is something to be excited for.
#3 WAVE FOAM
Wave foam is a chosen favorite for summer for many reasons. Seasoned element 1 stylist Amanda McDonald shared some great tips on why this product is great for the summer and how you can use it in different ways.
“I like wave foam for the curly girls who don’t have time to blow out straight, especially during the summer. With summer comes humidity, and this makes blow drying an even harder task than usual. Wave foam can be applied on damp hair, and air dried for a natural texture, OR diffused for a fuller look.”
For me, that says it all folks. If you have curly hair, you need this product for summer. Not to mention all the conditioning agents made to soften and hydrate curly hair in the process. It makes our hearts stop. Perfecting lotion is a great pair with this product! You can use perfecting lotion as a lotion for your hair. There is NO FRIZZ when you use perfecting lotion and it hugs to your natural hair curls. It basically does what it’s named after- perfecting your curl.
#4 ANTI-HUMIDTY SEAL
If you’re going out by the water at night, or you have to look presentable on a rainy day, you need to protect your hair against all that moisture in the air! Anti-humidity seal is that protection for you. It’s a light mist that you halo around your hair. The soft scent makes you feel smooth while keeping your locks smooth! It has 24 hour protection against humidity, incredible shine, and a smooth soft touch! Even if you don’t have curly hair, you can transform sea salty waves with a boar bristle brush and anti-humidity seal! It smooths out your style and gets you night ready for your evening activities.
#5 DRY TOUCH-UP SPRAY
This spray is SOOOOOO important in the summer. I can’t stress it enough. You can use it with any hair product. A major issue that happens in the summer is the deprivation of oils on our ends. On the opposite end of the spectrum, our scalps can be quite oily. Because of that people tend to wash their hair more to remove the oil, but never consider the stress their ends are experiencing. The summer sun, hot tool exposure (curling wands, flat irons etc…), and natural radicals (wind, salt water) all put crazy amounts of stress on the ends. To keep your ends healthy, ALWAYS carry dry touch-up with you. You won’t regret it. It has a great scent, incredible shine, and instant detangling power. Your hair will thank you when you’ve made it through the summer without destroying your ends.
