Summer is upon us here in Dallas so I feel compelled to talk about summer hairstyles for Dallas weather. Although the rain we’ve been having this spring of 2015 is out of the ordinary the sun and heat will be back upon us very soon. And what are the worst things for hairstyles? Heat, humidity and wind.

Summer hairstyles are a little hard to keep looking good. As we all know the weather here in Dallas can go from sunny and mild to down pouring rain back to sun and HEAT in a matter of hours so it’s good to be prepared. For you product junkies out there you’ll have no problem with this list but for you bare hair beauties this may look like a lot but trust me it’s going to help with keeping your hair calm and hopefully keep your style lasting longer.

First things first, shampoo. Depending on your hair type and texture this could go from a basic gentile cleansing shampoo and light conditioner to a very moisturizing shampoo and a little heavier conditioner. For finer and/or thinner hair you’re going to want to stay simple and use a gentile cleansing shampoo with a light conditioner like Bumble and bumble Gentile shampoo and Super Rich conditioner or the Signature shampoo and conditioner or Ultra Gentile from Oribe.  For heavier/coarse hair you’ll probably need something a bit more moisturizing and a heavier conditioner such as Moisture and Control shampoo and conditioner from Oribe.

Now for the styling products. It’s very important to use the proper styling products before you dry your hair. This will insure that they get evenly distributed throughout your hair as you brush and dry it. For finer/thinner hair a good volumizer and root lift should be at the top of your product list. Volumista and Maximista by Oribe are great as well as Thickening Hairspray and Thickening Mousse from Bumble and bumble. Followed up by an anti-humidity styling spray when it’s dry such as Impermeable’ by Oribe. For coarse/thick hair that has a tendency to frizz you’re going to want a little something different.

I would suggest before you dry a leave in conditioner or hair oil to start such as Bumble’s Invisible Oil or Oribe Gold Lust. Followed up by a styling cream or serum. Oribe’s Gel Serum, Smooth Style Serum or Creme for Style. Or Bumble’s Straight Blow Dry or Defrizz. All hair types can be followed up with Oribe Impermeable’ and of course Super Fine hairspray or Bumble’s Spray De Mode.

These are just a few of the examples of how to battle the heat, humidity and wind of summer. There are a lot more to choose from but these in my opinion are a must have in your summer hair arsenal.
