Beauty 101: Summer Hair Tips with Dylan K. Hanson!

Summer beauty and summer heat doesn't always mix which is why Makeup Junkie has asked some top experts in the beauty biz secrets to maintaining your beauty composure in the heat and humidity! Check out Dylan K. Hanson's summer hair tips!

Dylan's hair tips:


a. Helping prolong the life of your hairstyle with less frizz… using or finishing hairspray will help lock out moisture.
b. Try using products (ex: mouse’s, foam, sprays) that have Anti-Humectant formulas, they are specifically designed to help control your style in higher humidity

Ocean and swimming pools

a. Cleansing your hair regularly after swimming will help prevent undo build-up of chlorine and salt water. Specific cleansing shampoo & conditioners are available. Another option to save those delicate hair colours is by wearing a swimmers cap.


a. A touch of sun can add a beautiful sun kissed glow to your hair but too much will damage it, causing excessive dryness & colour fading. Leave-in conditioners are great for added moisture and hair product with UV protection are a plus. For long days at the beach a fashionable hat is never out of fashion.
TIP: Learning ways to style your hair without using blow dryers and heated elements will help save extra moisture in dry conditions. Use the natural heat of the climate to your advantage. Styling wet hair in single to multiple Ponytails or Braiding can make great beachy looking waves naturally once the hair has been air dried and elastics removed. Even enhance your natural wave or curls by scrunching hair with mouse or light gel and allowing to air dry.
