UO Beauty: Summer Hair Repair
Now that we're deep into the summer and have been spending most of our days at the beach and pool, our hair is juuust starting to look a little worse for the wear. This is the time we whip out some of our favorite hair repair products, so our locks can get back to model status in a hurry. Read on for our current favorites below.
1. Alterna Bamboo Beach Sun Recovery Spray
Alterna's Sun Recovery Spray is a leave-in conditioner that can be applied to dry hair, which means it's incredibly easy to use and you have no excuses not to use it on your poor, over-chlorinated hair. Just spray some on before running out the door and you're good to go. (This one also happens to smell really, really good.)
Cocooil is MAGIC in a bottle. First of all, it's fine to use on your hair or your body, so it's a good buy if you like a nice two-in-one product. Secondly, if you have sensitive skin, Cocooil is a smart choice because it's an all-natural coconut-oil blend. There are no artificial fragrance or colorings are in this one, so it should be totally soothing to even the most sensitive skin.
3. Carol's Daughter Monoi Oil Sacred Strengthening Serum
Carol's Daughter Monoi Oil Sacred Strengthening Serum is a lightweight, silicone-free, hair oil that "reverses and prevents damage caused by heat-styling, color-treating and chemical straightening." The secret ingredient is its monoi oil. We love this serum because it makes our hair incredibly soft after only a couple of pumps.
4. Murray's CocoSoft Coconut Oil
Best for thick, curly hair, Murray's coconut oil is formulated a little differently from regular coconut oils. It's thicker and works as a "light-hold pomade" on top of just moisturizing, which means you don't need a lot at all. If you're looking for a lighter spray or something that's more of a straight coconut oil, then this product isn't for you!
