Summer styling tools: BEAT THE HEAT!

Hey there, hunnies!  The heat wreaking havoc on your hair?  Is the humidity giving you hell?  Let me help!

As the summer heats up here in coastal Maine, we know the inevitable dew points are rising too.  Humidity is hair's most notorious nemesis, as it can indiscriminately poof, flatten, frizz, and frazzle.  So this season, whether you're curly, wavy, or straight, be armed and ready with the proper warm weather styling tools!

The Blow-out: 

Big blow-out at Versace.



Smooth and glossy at Chloe.

Don't be intimidated by a big, beautiful blow-out.  You can achieve this glam look as seen all over the Versace runways with the help of a few trusty tools and tips.
Start with your smoothing product:

Phytolisse Shampoo & Masque

Heat activated Phytodefrisant

Our Phytolisse Shampoo contains pine pulp to cut down blowdrying time and seal out humidity.  Follow with Phytolisse Masque for 48 hours of frizz control!  After you cleanse and condition apply a dollop of Defrisant, a heat-activated chemical free straightening balm.  Start your blow-dry by scatter drying to 70%.
Here's where clips come in handy!
Duckbill hair clips

When sectioning hair to blow-dry work from the bottom layer up.  This allows you to focus on one section of hair at a time.  Clip that other hair out of your way!  And work with sections that are no bigger than the diameter of your round brush.  Choose a brush that works for your hair: natural boar bristle brushes are perfect for coarser or curlier textured hair.
Prego perforated ceramic round brush.

Spornette natural bristle round brush.

Phyto smoothing natural bristle round brush.

Keep your cool, take your time, and try and make sure that each section is completely dry before moving on to the next.  Any moisture left in the hair will create frizz.  On your last pass of each section, wrap hair around the barrel of the brush and allow to cool.  This will hold the shape of the desired style.

Finish your blow-dry with one pump of Phytolisse Serum for a final seal of smooth.

Phytolisse Serum

This multi-purpose serum is also perfect for curly girls!  Apply liberally on wet hair and allow to air dry!  Re-apply throughout the day to tame and add shine!

Got some torque to your tresses?  Grab your Phytolisse Serum again!  Enhance natural wave (or create some!) and add polish by incorporating curls with a hot iron.  And don't over think it!  Follow your wave pattern, not all of your curls need to go in the same direction!

In a hurry but still trying for a beachy bombshell look?  Look no further than Phyto Matte Texturizing Paste!  Scrunch a squeeze of this soft texture cream into towel dried hair and air dry.  The result?  Enhanced natural texture that remains malleable throughout the day!  Scrunch anytime to reshape, its that easy!
