Healthy Summer Hair Care
(Family Features) While the sun, pool days and warmer temperatures are often a welcome change come summer, they can be brutal on your hair. It’s important to give your locks some extra love this season.
“The sun, sweat and chlorine can fade color fast. Make sure you have the right products to protect your hair,” said Heather Brodzin, director of salon and spa with Beauty Brands. “Whether it’s styling aids, hair protectants, a smoother or moisturizer, make sure you consider your scalp and hair type for a tailored solution. Also don’t forget to schedule a trim with your stylist every 6-8 weeks to keep split ends at bay, or a deep conditioning treatment that gives your hair that extra boost of protection and moisture it needs. A little preparation and regular salon visits can help keep you looking and feeling your best all summer long.”

Guard your hair against styling tools as well as summer’s ultraviolet rays and humidity with the 24-hour protection offered by a weightless spray like Living Proof Restore Instant Protection Living Proof Restore Instant Protection. Mist it on before styling and re-apply as needed, or use it as a finishing aid for shine and smoothing.
Extend Your Summer Style
Spend more time outside enjoying the summer sun and less time cooped up indoors styling your hair with dry shampoo like TIGI Bed Head Oh Bee Hive! Matte Dry Shampoo, which creates volume and texture without a lot of work.
Safeguard Your Color
Don’t let the summer sun steal your color. Captivating care can be a breeze with a gentle shampoo like Redken Color Extend Magnetics Sulfate Free Shampoo and Conditioner, which uses amino-ions to build a barrier fortifying color and vibrance.
Shut Down Frizz
Keep your hair conditioned, hydrated and free of frizz this summer with a styling aid such as Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream. The lightweight formula moisturizes while it tames and helps create soft, natural summer styles.
Lock in Moisture
Unlike typical conditioners that rest on the surface of the hair, hair masks work their way into the hair cuticles to repair damage from the inside out. Regular application of a hair mask like Soulfood Nourishing Mask can add shine, increase manageability and provide essential nourishment to seal summer split ends.
Strengthen and Beautify
With 21 benefits inside one bottle, including shinier hair, shorter blow-drying time, frizz reduction and enduring hair color, an option like Pureology Colour Fanatic Multi-Tasking Hair Beautifier repairs damaged hair and shields it against heat and environmental damage by sealing hair cuticles.

Our favorite style experts share valuable tips for men and women to help you take your look to the next level.
1. Take day of TLC
After hours under the sun, spend a day pampering your skin. Use a sugar or salt scrub to get rid of rough patches, impurities and lingering dead skin cells. Then, use a scented body wash like Caress Mystic Forever body wash to seal in moisture. “There is nothing more attractive than soft skin and good fragrance,” says international plus size model Denise Bidot. “I love how the scent is released hours after I used it.” The fragrance touch technology in the body wash releases bursts of iris and amber scent throughout the day.
2. Embrace your Confidence
The transition period between summer and fall is a great time to re-energize. Men can up their game by changing deodorants. AXE Adrenaline Dry Spray Antiperspirant leaves no visible residue and will help you conquer your day with the long lasting fragrance of fresh green woods.
3. Start with a blank canvas
Before you begin your beauty routine for the day, make sure your entire face is clean. Iris Beilin, YouTube beauty guru, uses a cleansing wipes like POND’S Original Fresh Wet Cleansing Towelettes, to make sure her face is dirt and oil free. After that, moisturize and prime your face before putting on makeup.
4. Give your hair an intensive treatment
The elements can be hard on your hair, but you can fight the damage with a coconut oil treatment. Celebrity hairstylist Leonardo Rocco recommends using a repairing oil, like Suave Coconut Oil Infusion Damage Repair Oil Treatment, to bring your strands back to life. “In the shower, put a few drops into your hands, rub them together and apply it to your hair from the middle to the ends. Leave in for three minutes, rinse and style as usual,” says Rocco.
5. Deepen your color palette
Swap your gold, nude and bronze shades for a color palette more suitable for the autumn season. Rich shades of plum and wine pair well with matte textures and add warmth when you’re getting ready on those crisp fall mornings.
As the summer days come to an end, follow these tips to ease your transition into the crisp fall weather.
While using a cleanser or lathering on sunblock may be an obvious part of a guy’s summer grooming routine – applying deodorant, and underarm health in general, is surprisingly important to men. Learn about proper underarm care and simple ways to manage common issues with this information.
Caring for Your Underarms
An essential summer grooming guide for men
(Family Features) With summer weather finally here, increased sweating is bound to happen. While using a cleanser or lathering on sunblock may be an obvious part of a guy’s summer grooming routine – applying deodorant, and underarm health in general, is surprisingly important to men.
Research from Dove Men+Care shows that nine out of 10 men agree that deodorant is one of the most important personal hygiene products they use in order to feel clean, fresh and confident – and half of men feel it’s especiallyimportant on a warm summer day.
Don’t Sweat It
“The study clearly reveals the gap between the issues men face and easy solutions to their problems. Many men are dealing with underarm issues, but only three out of 10 have spoken to their friends or family about experiencing these challenges,” said board-certified dermatologist Dr. Terrence Keaney. “We need to change this. As a physician, I want men to feel comfortable speaking to a medical professional about their underarm issues, as there are many ways to treat and prevent them.”
“I see so many men continue to switch their deodorant trying to find the one that’s right for them instead of seeking help from a physician or talking to one another about what’s bothering them,” Keaney said. “I highly recommend using a product that has moisturizing agents, such as Dove Men+Care’s Cool Fresh antiperspirant stick, which was developed with a clinically proven, non-irritating formula and moisturizing technology to actively care for men’s skin.”
With so many men facing these common challenges, Dove Men+Care has teamed up with leaders in fitness, style and grooming, along with Keaney, to create the Guide to Complete Underarm Care, which aims to open a dialogue around underarm health.
“Since men are so hesitant to talk to their doctors or friends, I think this online guide will be a terrific resource for them to ask the tough questions they have traditionally been too embarrassed to ask,” Keaney said.
