Summer hair is, at the same time, easy and frustrating. By easy, I mean that you can sport uncomplicated styles like beachy waves and cute braids. It can also be frustrating to fight frizz and sun damage.
Below are some of my current faves for healthy and gorgeous hair:
Dessert Essence Island Mango Shampoo & Conditioner ($9, 8 fl. oz. each) — Infused with a blend of mango seed butter, organic shea butter and organic coconut oil, this shampoo cleanses with rich lather for soft, healthy hair. Use the delightfully scented Island Mango Conditioner tolock-in moisturize for smooth, silky, deeply moisturized strands.
Italian Lemon Shampoo & Conditioner, ($9, 8 fl. oz. each) — Formulated with energizing lemon oil, rich in anti-oxidant vitamin C, this deep cleaning shampoo removes product and oil build up without stripping hair of natural moisture. Follow using the lightweight Italian Lemon Conditioner to replenish hairs natural moisture while adding shine for soft andmanageable hair.
What I think: These both have such wonderful summer scents! The Island Mango is my favorite. I leaves my hair so soft. The Italian Lemon is great once or twice a week because it really cleans the product out of my hair and makes my hair so shiny! I suggest trying both!
