When summer comes around, I sometimes have an urge to go blonde. Not totally blonde, just blond-er. The problem is that highlights are pretty pricey, and who has time for a trip to the salon when there is so much fun to be had in the summer months? If you want your hair to have a beachy, sun-kissed look this summer, here is the natural way to do so!

  1. Create your own salt spray: Mix a bit of salt with water, spray it on your hair (which opens the cuticle), and then go lay in the sun. This will fade your hair into a lighter color.images (1)
  2. Grab some lemon juice: Before heading out into the sun, add some lemon juice to your strands. The acid in the juice opens your cuticle, same as the salt water example above, leaving it open to the sun’s rays.
  3. Mix lemon and orange: If you are going for more golden, subtle highlights, mix orange and lemon juice together and do the same steps as above.

These DIY highlight concoctions are so easy to make, and fun to implement! Spray stuff on my hair, then go lay in the sun? Easy peasy.

Just like you need to protect your skin from the sun’s damaging rays, you need to protect your precious locks! You wear sunscreen to ward off harmful UV rays and wear hats to cover your face because you know how important it is, and the same goes for protecting your hair. Here are the best ways to prevent permanent sun damage to your hair.

  1. Use sunblock: For your hair! Yes, it is a “thing.” You can make your own DIY hair sunscreen by combining one tablespoon of sunblock with a cup of water in a spray bottle and spritzing it all over your locks. The sun can burn your hair just like it burns your skin, so be mindful of that!2431-1_og_article_portrait
  2. Accessorize: My favorite, and the most easy way to protect your hair. Wear a headwrap, scarf, or a sunhat over your hair when you are exposed to the sun’s rays. Not only will it protect against damage, you will also look super cute!
  3. Deep condition: Before a day at the beach or out in the sun, work a deep conditioner into wet hair and don’t rinse it. This will keep your hair from frying and drying out as well as protect it against damaging rays.
  4. Wear heat protectant: You can use the same heat protectant you use before curling or flat ironing your hair before you head out into the sun!

It is important to protect your skin AND hair from the sun this summer. It will save you a ton of damage and will keep your body happy and healthy.

Who loves cotton candy? I am obsessed with the fluffy, magical stuff. Here is a hair style totally inspired by it! It is fun, flirty, and totally adorable! Here is how YOU can do your very own “cotton candy” bun!Cotton-Candy-E-Liquid

Tease up some of the hair at the base so that you can give your roots a little volume. Pull your hair into a high pony tail.
Spray hair spray throughout your whole pony. Tease the whole thing, make sure the whole pony tail is all teased up.
Once your hair is thoroughly teased, twist it around to make it into a bun. Take some bobby pins and secure the bun once you have twisted it up completely. Spritz the whole thing with a bit of hair spray to set it.

Viola! Now you have a cute, sweet hair style that will keep the hair off of your neck and keep you cool, but also give an innocent flare to your ensemble. Do YOU like this hair style? Comment below!

XOXO, Chels
