Every year, Fekkai launches a limited-edition haircare line specifically designed to protect your hair through the brutal summer months. I look forward to this every year because the products are typically fabulous, super moisturizing, and really help my highlighted hair not look fried during the scorching heat and sticky humidity. Also, they smell divine: faintly beachy and totally summery. This year, the following products are available in the Summer Hair collection:
- Beach Waves Spray ($25)
- Smooth Sailing Anti-Frizz Cream ($25)
- Cooling Shine Mist ($25)
- After Sun Mask ($25)
Beach Waves is a lightweight mist that will help create a tousled, windswept effect and coax out the natural wave in your hair, if you’ve got one. If your locks need a little more encouragement to wave, then you may want to try a curl-enhancing creme on your damp tresses before spritzing this on. It will help maximize the waviness and give it that piecey, beachy look.
Smooth Sailing Anti-Frizz Cream is great for combating frizz on hot, humid days. If your hair naturally wants to wave when the humidity rises and you’d like to keep it straight, this can help (it won’t keep your strands stick-straight, but it will fight the wave a bit).
Cooling Shine Mist is an aerosol spray that coats your mane with a UV protectant–like sunscreen for your hair. Spraying this on can help extend the life of color-treated hair.
If you’re outside a lot in the summer, the After Sun Mask is like an insurance policy for your hair–especially if you color or highlight it. Sun (UV rays), sand, saltwater, chlorine, and heat all suck moisture out of your hair, leaving it brittle and dry. (If you have wavy/curly hair and use styling/straightening products containing alcohol, it’s a double whammy.) And if your hair is color-treated, those effects are intensified because your hair is already compromised from dyeing. This is a repairing treatment for strands damaged by the outdoors. If you’re the forgetful type who may not remember to use a protectant on your hair before heading outside, this is a good solution to keep it looking healthy until autumn arrives (and really, let’s not rush that).
The collection is available now online and in select stores where Fekkai products are sold.
