If sun-kissed is the look for summer skin, then sun-silked is the look for summer hair. The Budget Babe's Beauty expert shares her favorite haircare products for a sexy 'do at a super hot price. —TBB
It's mid-July, and we ladies—and guys—find ourselves in the middle of the season we like to call “how-do-I-manage-my-hair?” (also known as summer). Now, I hate to toot my own horn here (lie), but when it comes to hair I think I’m the perfect budget-beauty-babe guinea pig. With wavy, layered, half-blonde half-black hair (that through the years has been every shade in between) I’m a pretty good test subject for a whole gamut of products—and I have been.
In the not too distant past, a new product hit the shelves that has really taken off—and for good reason. It has unfailingly taken me from winter, to spring, to summer with miraculous results. A perfect balance of what hair needs, with no side effects to color (dark or light!)
And it is with this confidence that I recommend to every budget babe out there that they stock up on the uber deal that is Sunsilk. The line has a product that's perfect for every hair problem and they ::gasp:: work! When I want to tame my waves I go for the Straighten Up, which gives me soft silky hair without any product feel. Then when I want to go back to waves I use either the Anti-Poof, Hydra TLC or De-Frizz. They all work wonders and I’m proud to say I own the collection. At around $4 bucks a pop, who can afford not to?!
Beauty Tip: Going to the beach or swimming pool? Pop a Hydra TLC 24/7 crème into your bag; apply small dollop post-H20, and tada!!! Gorgeous summer sexy hair (smells lovely too!).
Tips for the budget-beef-cake: Guys, take a hint: super crunchy hair is not that appealing, but neither is a frizzy pile! Solution? Anti-Poof 24/7 crème. Just a dollop to wet hair, let air dry, and you have luscious locks! (Tested and approved on the Budget Beauty Babe’s Beefcake)
Keeping you lovely for less...
