How To: Prep Your Hair for Summer

How To: Prep Your Hair for Summer

Posted by Inger Berg on May 24th 2015

With summer right around the corner, it’s time to refresh your hair care routine for the upcoming season and protect your locks against the harsh summer elements (sun, salt water, chlorine, etc.). For us, that means introducing products that provide thermal protection and extra hydration, and stylers that easily transition our look from day to evening, beach to happy hour and so on. We enlisted the help of Paul Mitchell® brand manager Inger Berg to help us select must-have summer hair care product. Here are the products she’s keeping stocked all summer long:

For Color Treated Hair: Ultimate Color Repair® Three-Part System

UV rays, salt water and chlorine can wreak havoc on color-treated hair, but Ultimate Color Repair provides a serious defense. The shampoo, conditioner and thermal protection spray work wonders on color-treated hair╌used together, the three-part system gently cleanses and conditions while providing thermal protection, preventing breakage and boosting shine. This system is my prescription for healthy hair under any summer condition.  

For Blondes and Highlighted Hair: Forever Blonde® Dramatic Repair®

Summer is a popular time to lighten your locks and this is one of my favorite products to protect and repair blonde hair. Forever Blonde Dramatic Repair is loaded with KerActive protein, safflower oleosomes and macadamia nut oil which penetrate, repair and moisturize over-worked summer hair. After a long day at the beach or by the pool, apply this lightweight spray to your hair and let your strands enjoy the deep hydration and recovery.

For Everyone: Dry Wash®

Dry Wash is a must-have for everyone! This waterless shampoo extends the life of your blow-out, refreshes your locks after a day spent poolside, and revives limp hair for gorgeous volume. Summer hair is all about keeping it low-key and not over-styling╌Dry Wash enables you to style your hair once and enjoy the look for a few days. Plus, you’ll easily achieve that laid-back, breezy vibe that is on trend for 2015.

You can find all of these products at a Paul Mitchell salon or school near you.

Inger Berg is the Brand Manager for Paul Mitchell®. She works closely with our Product Innovation Center and team of professionals to develop Paul Mitchell products that deliver superior results. She is known around the office for having shiny, gorgeous locks!
