We’ve made it past the harsh, cold winds of winter, but you still need to maintain a great hair care regimen during the humid summer months. Check out our easy tips for keeping your mane shiny and strong.

 

To protect your tresses when heat styling, be sure to always use a leave-in conditioner, like Motions' Leave-In Conditioner, before blow drying and a heat protectant serum before flat ironing. Also, to avoid excessive heat styling of new growth during humid months, make sure your heat protectant serum fights humidity. This will extend the life of your straight style and allow you to give your heat tools a rest.

 

Regular trims are extremely important. Have your stylist clip your ends every six to eight weeks if you’re heat styling or relaxed, and every two to three months if you’re natural. Yes, curly girls have to trim their manes as well. Split ends will continue to split if they’re not clipped properly.

 

Treat color-treated manes with care! Chemical processing of any kind tends to totally change the hair shaft, so switch your regular conditioners to color-treated deep conditioners to nourish and moisturize your strands.

*The truth is that many people do not know how to care for their hair. With the help of Motions you're in good hands. Motions offers the best hair care products, advice and the inspiration you need to try a new hair style or haircut. Here's a tip!


POSH PIXIE DAYTIME LOOK: Wash with Motions Weightless Conditioning Shampoo andMotions Weightless Detangling Conditioner, and brush damp hair (starting mid-crown) toward the front of the head. Rub a quarter-size amount of pomade, such as Motions Shine Enhancing Pomade, and run it through hair to get a shaggy, piecey look. Flat iron the hair in small sections in the direction of the shape of the haircut. Finish off the look with Motions Hold & Shine Styling Spray and a bit more pomade and you’re ready to go!
