(SPOT.ph) Beauty junkies, we already know you’ve got your vanity tables stocked top to bottom with skincare products. But while you’re making sure your complexion is smooth and healthy, don’t forget about your tresses—especially in this season when it’s prone to dryness and damage.
Here are 10 must-have hair products for the summer:
No Drought Dry Shampoo (P995) from Lush
The summer heat’s going to make you want to wash your hair every chance you get, but we suggest you resist the urge—shampooing every single day can dry your hair out and strip it of its natural oils. The decreased washing might make your hair a tad greasy, but you can combat the excess grease with this powdered dry shampoo from Lush. It’ll absorb excess oil while leaving your hair with a matte finish and a light fruity scent.
See a list of Lush branches.
Compressed Micro Mist (P435) from TRESemmé
If you’ll be extra busy this summer with plenty of activities, this lightweight spray from TRESemmé comes in handy. It protects your hair from humidity and frizz while also locking in freshness so your tresses look bouncy without that stiff after-hairspray feeling. It comes in four variants that can help with texture, smoothness, volume, and hold, respectively.
Available at selected groceries, Watsons, BeautyMNL, and Lazada.
