Duet is Back
Nothing's sexier in the summer than tousled, windswept waves that look like you just spent a day at the beach. Here's how it's done:
- Spray a saltwater solution on wet hair. Shake your head a few times, then let your hair air dry.
- Next, add more texture. Grab a
1- to 2-inch section of hair, spritz it with the surf spray, then wrap it around a 1-inch curling iron.
- Repeat step two throughout your hair, but vary the size of your sections and the direction you wrap the hair. You want to be imprecise. The more imperfect it looks, the more effortlessly beachy it will be.
- Break up the curls using your fingers, and don't worry about a few flyaways. They'll make the style that much more believable.

Let’s face it: No nosh is perfect. But some come close. When choosing a snack, try to hit the nutritional targets below.
About 200 calories: This is enough to keep your metabolism humming, said Bethany Thayer, a registered dietitian in Detroit.
At least 3 grams of fiber: Fiber is digested slowly and helps sustain your energy. It also absorbs water and expands in your stomach to keep you full.
At least 5 grams of protein: “Protein releases a hormone in the body that increases satiety,” said Elisa Zied, a registered dietitian in New York City.
No more than 12 grams of fat: This will help ensure that you don’t get more than 20 to 35 percent of your daily calories from fat, which is the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s recommendation.

1. Shower Before a Swim
Chlorine, salt, and natural lake sediment wreak havoc on your hair, so before you take the plunge, we suggest a pre-wash and condition. It may sound weird to shower before getting in the water, but allowing your hair to soak up fresh, filtered water prevents it from absorbing the harmful properties of chlorine or salt. After stepping out of the shower (or from under the hose!) spray in or comb through a leave-in conditioner to further hydrate your locks.
2. Lighten up
Summer is the time to let your hair go a couple shades lighter—remember that remedies like lemon juice and hydrogen peroxide can increase dryness and breakage. To avoid this, we suggest applying a mixture of lemon juice and conditioner on your dampened hair. This allows the sun to lighten up those roots while keeping your hair moisturized!
3. Rehab Your Hair
When you officially retire from beach bummin’ for the day, make sure to hop in the shower and start rehabbing your hair! Try using a restorative shampoo which removes chemicals and helps rebuild your hair’s fibers.
TIP: If you’re showering before bed, don’t rinse out the conditioner. Instead, leave it in and wrap your wet, conditioned hair in a hand towel and fasten with an elastic. Let your hair rehab overnight and absorb all the moisturizing agents of the conditioner. Then give yourself a fabulous blow dry with a round brush in the morning— your ‘do will be full of body, shine, and irresistible softness!
4. Keep Hair Strong
To prevent your hair from split ends, it’s always a good idea to get a trim and treatment done at your local salon once a month.
TIP: Eating proteins like fish and nuts to keep your hair healthy! This will enhance your hair’s strength
and prevent breakage.
5. Fight Frizz
The summer humidity can make your straight hair go frizzy in a matter of minutes! Prevent this by using a good moisturizing cream-based product. Put a little dollop of the product in your hands and run your fingers through your hair, spreading the product evenly throughout your locks. This is a great way to tame the frizzes while adding moisture back in your hair!
TIP: For emergency fixes, use dryer sheets to smooth hair down. Not only will it take the frizz out, but it will add shine and leave your hair smelling fresh all day!
6. Condition, Condition, Condition
Summer heat can cause weak and dry hair fast. A conditioning treatment instantly adds life and moisture to your hair.
TIP: If you can’t splurge on a salon conditioning treatment, the tried and true at-home remedy of olive oil works too. Try this recipe: take 1 tablespoon of household olive oil, rub it in the palms of your hands, and smooth it through damp hair. If you want a deep condition, leave the olive oil for an hour or two, if you want a light condition, rinse it out immediately. This is a great way to cure dry, damaged, split hair from the sun and chlorine.
