We’ve already said goodbye to ombre, and welcomed balayage with open arms; it seems that in 2017, this trend is about to remain number one. In the past, women (mostly) opted for golden caramel hues; however, more and more red carpet divas have started transforming their warm shades into a bit cooler tones, probably inspired by Kendall Jenner’s fabulous ashy phase.
No Heat Hairstyles
Brace yourselves, girls, summer’s coming, meaning we will be less tolerant to blow dryers, curling irons and hair straighteners. Luckily, this season, we’re seeing a female movement towards no-heat hairstyles which are not only more practical during the scorching July days but are also less harmful to our hair.
For busy girls, there are pin back waves, messy updos, bubbly ponytails, braids in front, braids half up… basically – braids everywhere! And how are you going to make these amazing hairstyles? Following Pinterest tutorials, of course.
Have you checked Alicia Keys’ Instagram lately? This girl, who set the entire #nomakeup trend, is now all about curls au naturelle. So, all of you curly girls who cannot imagine a day without your straighteners – stop being a slave to your hair. Stop smothering your curls and let the volume out – let your hair breathe.
Healthy and Regenerating Products
In addition to avoiding the use of a multitude of heating tools, women have started using hair vitamins to rid their hair of toxins, prevent damages and add shine. There are also quite popular nutritional supplements that can boost your hair with amino acids, as a result support health and normal growth from the root. Note that by opting for hair vitamins, you get a personalized solution for your hair’s unique needs.
Furthermore, jojoba oil that we’ve so far used for our face and body slowly started substituting coconut oil for our hair. This multi-purpose product will moisturize our body for the upcoming summer season and will add a glossy sheen to our hair.
