Summer is calling; it’s saying to put down the heat tools. This season, the only heat you’ll need is from the sun! Natural hairstyles are increasingly moving their way up in popularity. From natural textures in all their glory to braided looks galore, styling your hair with just a bit of product and mechanical tools can decrease it’s exposure to damage. We’re not saying to ditch your iron altogether! Without a doubt, some occasions call for the iron, perhaps a sleek look or voluminous curls. Knowing you have a healthy head of hair because you’re reducing its exposure to damage will give you peace of mind.
So, where do you begin? For some of us, the only hairstyles that come naturally are wearing it loose, in a ponytail, or half up half down. All of these are terrific styles to experiment with and utilize! Have fun getting to know your natural texture and the many ways it looks best worn.

Use OLAPLEX No.6 Bond Smoother as a leave-in bond rebuilder and No.7 Bonding Oil for superior shine, bond maintenance, and heat protection. With just a little help from No.6 and No.7, you can amplify your air-dried styles while rebuilding bonds!
