Summer as a kid: living at the pool, beach, ice cream, friends, and a great tan by the middle of June.
Summer as an adult: pool after work and on the weekends, non-dairy ice cream substitutes, texting friends because schedules never line up, and a tan? Maybe by the end of the summer. Vacation? If you have the PTO.
Yes, we’ve gotten older. As much as we try to avoid it, aging is not all bad! We’ve learned a thing or two in the process. The body needs maintenance to be its best from head to toe and summer is a great time to remember that.
Certain things are more obvious than others. Hydrate to keep your inside and outside going. Protect your skin from the sun’s damaging rays. Breathe – mental health is just as important as physical. Treat yourself to a manicure and a pedicure for a quick and easy confidence boost. Did you know those four pieces also apply to your hair during the summer? Hydrate, protect, breathe, and treat.
As obvious as this may seem, you’d be surprised how many people don’t embrace this. It’s hot outside, you’re sweating, and your hair feels all that. As a result you are probably washing your hair more during the summer months than you do during the winter.
There’s nothing wrong with clean hair but all that washing can strip moisture out. Many also look for clarifying products to clean their hair of all the grime. Balance everything out with a good moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. Moisture is essential for the beauty and life of your hair.
Stay smooth and hydrated with CIBU Smooth Shampoo & Conditioner!
You miss the warm summer sun during the winter but do you ever remember about all the damage those rays can do? Unprotected, your skin can get wrinkled and tough. There’s no amount of water to drink that can counteract the sun. Here’s the thing, your hair is delicate and sits on top of your head. It is exposed to the elements if it isn’t protected. Add an accessory by adding a hat or scarf! There are so many cute options from baseball caps to sunhats that every outfit can be topped off and still be on point.

You know when you get stressed and you both physically and emotionally start crunching yourself into a little ball? It doesn’t feel good! Stress on your body is bad as a whole. Stress on the hair is no different! Keep your hair down or in loose braids / buns! Let your hair breathe. Yes ladies, this means you need to put down the hot tools as well! Easy, loose hair is in. Embrace the beach waves and just let it be.

Like a glass of wine after a long day at work or a piece of cake because you survived Tuesday, treating yourself is an appreciated part of life. Everyone needs to indulge every now and then. Your hair wants in on that love! Treat yourself in a couple different ways. Get a trim or change your look completely at the start of the season. Fresh hair. Fresh mind. Fresh start.
