Dry shampoo, always.

Obvi, dry shampoo is a must. It's your summer must-have product. I love Klorane - the formula is specifically designed to create max volume in the hair and combat a sweaty scalp. Try the aquatic mint - it has organic flax and is designed for the post-workout refresh.

Embrace the up-do

I love a cute 90's voluminoous up do. Pile a bunch of hair on top using a scrunchie and a few pins. Let the tendrils cascade down in front of the face.

Try a slick bun

For the days you truly can't beat the heat, nothing is better than a center part slick chignon bun. Perfect for getting the hair off of the neck and allowing max breeze.

Easy beach waves

If you want beach vibes or a down look, I suggest utlizing 4-5 sections and doing big chunky braids overnight. Leave the ends out (around 3 inches). When you wake, flat iron the braids in the morning before removing and you'll have effortless beach waves.
