Living in South Florida, it is summer all year round (except for two days out of the year when it is actually bearable!) so I'm constantly battling the heat by hitting the beach. Sure, my hair is cute once I get there, but once that salt water touches my tresses, I can look a hot mess! I want to be able to cool off without sacrificing a cute hair-do! So after a day of fun in the sun, I break out my secret weapon:
Isoplus Styling Gel.
Hair can go from glitz to frizz in a matter of seconds when the water hits it and when its ninety degrees outside, who wants to slave under a hair dryer or flat iron? So after a good shampoo and conditioner, I apply this gel to my damp hair. The great thing about this product is that it's light and holds your hair in place. It also doubles as a conditioner, which is something my hair needs in the heat. You can find it in any beauty supply store or your neighborhood Walmart or K-Mart in the Ethnic Hair section.
With this gel I can slick my hair back into a ponytail, letting the ends curl on its own. I throw on a pair of cute shades and I'm good to go! I'm looking cute and the only heat my hair gets is the summer sun!
This is my favorite summer beauty trick because I don't have to worry about frizz or sweaty hair. My head stays cool and my hair still looks hot!
