Summer means rooftop get-togethers, fabulous weather, picnics in the park, and all the outdoor activities you can think of. Everyone’s out and about, los días are brighter and longer, la gente seem happier, work hours miraculously become shorter, and the overall excitement is palpable.
However, hopping from soirée to soirée can leave us exposed to the elements, making our skin and hair prone to some beauty challenges. As Latinas, we know textured hair gets extra frizzy because of the humidity, and curls can get out of control. Once we start sweating, our makeup also suffers, giving us the dreaded pasty look that we try to avoid at all costs.
But these beauty inconveniences don’t need to get in your way. We’re giving you the lowdown on the hottest Summer trends and the Ulta Beauty products you can use to achieve them while still looking fresh in this Verano caliente. Keep scrolling for all the details!
Protect your naturally textured hair from frizz with the right products. Beat the heat, stay cool, and Summer-proof your look with serums and leave-ins that will make it easier to take on the hottest Summer trend for hair: braids. We recommend Redken One United Multi-Benefit Treatment Spray, a leave-in (or rinse-out!) that conditions, eliminates frizz, adds shine, and protects against hair damage.
CHI Keratin Silk Infusion Reconstructing Complex heals and hydrates dry, damaged hair by retaining moisture and smoothing the hair cuticle. IGK Rich Kid Coconut Oil Gel is great for that touchable hold and shine without the crunch. SheaMoisture Green Coconut & Activated Charcoal Build-Up Blaster uses green coconut, activated charcoal, and white tea to remove buildup from your scalp and hair, but keeps your strands nourished.
