Summer Hair Secrets: Channel Your Inner French Girl for Effortless Chic

Ah, summer. The season of sun-kissed skin, breezy dresses, and that effortless "French Girl" hair we all covet. We've got the secrets to keeping your hair hydrated, healthy, and stylish all summer long.

The French Girl Philosophy: Less is More

French women are known for their minimalist beauty routines, and hair care is no exception. The key is to embrace your natural texture and focus on maintaining healthy, hydrated hair.

Hydration is Key

The summer sun can quickly dry out your hair, so it's important to keep it hydrated. Use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner regularly, and treat your hair to a deep conditioning mask once a week. A simple DIY mask can be made by mixing a few drops of French Girl Rose Hair Oil with aloe vera gel or yogurt, then apply an hour or two before shampooing. And voilà – smoothed and conditioned locks effortlessly!

Protecting Hair from Sun Damage and Chlorine:

  • Pre-Swim Protection: Before taking a dip, wet your hair with clean water and apply a leave-in conditioner or hair oil. This creates a barrier that helps prevent chlorine and salt from penetrating the hair shaft. French Girl's Neroli Hydrosol or Rose Hair Oil are great option for this as it adds moisture and protection.
  • Post-Swim Care: Rinse hair thoroughly with clean water immediately after swimming to remove chlorine and salt. Then, use a clarifying shampoo to remove any residue, followed by a deep conditioner to replenish moisture.
  • UV Protection: When spending time outdoors, protect your hair by wearing a hat or using a UV-protectant hair spray.

Fight Frizz with the Right Products

Humidity can turn even the smoothest hair into a frizzy mess. Combat frizz by applying a leave-in conditioner or hair oil, like the luxurious French Girl Hair Oil, to damp hair. This will lock in moisture and keep your strands looking sleek.

Embrace Air-Drying

Ditch the heat styling tools as much as possible during the summer. Let your hair air dry to minimize damage and embrace your natural waves or curls. If you must use heat, be sure to apply a heat protectant spray beforehand.

Simple, Chic Summer Hairstyles

French Girl hair is all about effortless chic. Try these easy styles for hot weather.

  • Messy Bun: The ultimate in easy, breezy summer hair. 
  • Braids: Keep your hair off your neck and shoulders with a simple braid.
  • Top Knot: A sleek and sophisticated option for a summer night out.
  • Half-Up Half-Down: A romantic look that keeps your hair off your face while still showing off your length.
  • Scarf or Headband: Add a pop of color and keep your hair in place.

Embrace Your Natural Texture

Don't fight your natural waves or curls. Embrace them! If you have wavy or curly hair, use French Girl Sea Spray to enhance your natural texture and create those effortless, beachy waves that scream "summer vacation."

The Final Touch: A Silk or Bamboo Pillowcase

Upgrade your sleep routine with a silk or plant fiber pillowcase. It reduces friction, preventing breakage and frizz, so you wake up with smoother, healthier hair.
