When it comes to our hair in summertime, we could all use a little help styling-wise. We want to go as heat-free as possible, because truth be told, who wants to turn on a blowdryer in a heatwave? In terms of beauty, we are creatures of minimalism. We don’t want a million products or a complicated routine thrown at us. Enter Leo Izquierdo, Co-founder of IGK Hair Care. We plugged the hair guru with all of our questions and he seriously delivered. Read below for his tips; every day can be a good hair day this season…
How many times a week should we actually be washing our hair?
It depends on your hair type and texture and your activity level. The most important thing is to be sure your hair is healthy and hydrated. If you are skipping a wash, use dry shampoo to keep hair looking fresh and style lasting longer.
Which products do you use when air drying hair?
What’s your favorite hair trend for summer 2017?
- Short Bob – A bob feels really liberating and exudes confidence. Also, it doesn’t require straight strands – just make sure to get a cut that works with the natural curl. It’s perfect for summer because with the right cut it should be very air dry friendly.
- Shag fringe – Bangs are still on trend and we are loving the shag fringe because its more low maintenance and gives beautiful shape to the face. They can also be styled curly and natural – not as polished and buttoned up as before.
What do you recommend for the woman who is addicted to heat styling/will sacrifice anything for her blowout? How can she cut the cord?
Use a hair mask on the days you take your heat tool break, so your hair reaps all the benefits of the intense hydration. IGK Prenup Instant Spray Hair Mask can be applied in the shower and works in less than a minute, so you get that deep conditioning quickly and your hair is left looking incredibly smooth and shiny.
