Summer is amazing for so many reasons, but the havoc it can wreak on your hair isn’t one of them. Between the unrelenting heat, humidity and sun and drying caused by chlorine and ocean water, your hair could be in pretty bad shape come September.
The key to keeping your hair soft and healthy all season long? Preventative measures, of course. My hair is naturally dry, so summer has always been brutal for me. That is, until I tried Ouidad’s Moisture Lock leave-in conditioner. I honestly consider it a godsend because it saves my hair season after season.
This incredibly lightweight leave-in conditioner is formulated to give curly hair the moisture and nourishment it needs to stay healthy, but honestly the formula also works great on color-treated hair or hair that feels especially dry after a few too many days in sun or swimming pool. It dries virtually weightless so you never have to worry about it weighing down your hair, even though it’s packed with ingredients that will keep your strands soft and strong. There’s arnica and prickly pear which do the work of keeping your locks hydrated, while antioxidants like B5 and green tea protect your hair.
After I wash and condition, I apply this leave-in conditioner to my wet hair and let it air dry naturally. The result is always touchably soft curls that are defined without being crunchy. Even better, they hold their shape and remain soft for a few days.
If you’d rather not chop off lots of dry and damaged split ends at the end of summer, I highly recommend incorporating this product into your hair care routine ASAP.
