This routine is summertime fine. 

Calling all naturals! It’s almost the season to use your go-to natural hair wash and style routine for summer. Summer season is all about less time indoors and more time enjoying the heat. Who wants to be stuck inside trying to perfect a 10-step natural hair care routine? That’s what winter was for and if you did all the things you were supposed to, to your hair during the winter season, you can definitely give yourself a much needed break this season.

For many, summer is co-wash season. Most naturals tend to put the shampoo and conditioner aside and switch it out for the one-step wash routine. However, there are some more ways in which you can make your summer natural hair wash routine a bit more streamlined and easy. We have the tips below:

TFW your hair routine for summer is only 3 steps.

1. Dry Shampoo

If you don’t already have a dry shampoo incorporated into your routine (especially post-workout), summer is the best time to add it in. Typically, you’re only supposed to wash naturally curly hair twice a month to help with retaining moisture in your hair. However, during the summer season, especially those days when you break a gruesome sweat, you’ll feel like you’d want to wash your hair every single day. This is where a dry shampoo comes in. Use Dove Refresh+Care Detox & Purify Dry Shampoo to absorb any excess oil that may be wearing your curls down.

2. Cleansing Conditioner

Remember when we said that this is the season for co-washing? We meant it. Love Beauty and Planet Purposeful Hydration Shea Butter & Sandalwood Gentle Cleansing Conditioner is a must-have for the summer season. Add it as the first step in your  natural hair wash and style routine for summer. It does what your shampoo and conditioner would do in one easy step. The formula is infused with shea butter, cleans and conditions hair and leaves it smelling luxurious.

3. The Styler

The summer is also the season for the beloved wash-and-go hairstyle. Why? It’s easy and why would you want to style your hair any other way? However, this doesn’t mean that a hot day won’t lead to limp curls because that can definitely happen to anyone. Add Bed Head By TIGI On the Rebound Curl Recall Cream to your hairstyling routine. Let your curls know that they can get their bounce back with this stuff. The formula of this cream has a one-scrunch technology helps to reform dropped curls and makes sure they stay put for up to 72 hours. Can it get any better than this? We don’t think so.
