How-To Get Gorgeous Summer Hair & Win $220 Prize From Kronos!

 

 

Me at the pool!

 

Summer is almost here and if you’re anything like me, that means you’ve got a new beauty regimen that is about to get underway!  I load up on sunscreen, self-tanner and super conditioning hair products to nourish and protect. I’m always looking for summer hair tips since I have to be extra careful not to completely parch my already dry hair, so I enlisted the help of celebrity hair stylist and Kronos founder, Dusty Simington, to help me take proper care of my hair during these sun and pool drenched months! Here are his summer hair tips:
  
I love swimming, but not chlorine. Dusty explains that since hair is like a sponge—it is made up of 3 layers and absorbs everything. Chlorine can damage hair ends causing split ends and increased frizz. To avoid this damage, especially to your hair cuticles, Dusty recommends wetting your hair with tap water before taking a plunge into the pool. This way, your hair follicles fill up with water instead of chlorine!
Want to protect your hair, but still look like a beach babe? For a sexy, low maintenance look spray wet hair with Kronos’ leave-in conditioner Liquid Theory and then apply a light layer of Phyx Intensive Hair Repair Masque. Pull hair back into a ponytail or let hair dry naturally—you’ll l have gorgeous texture and protected locks!
 
 
 

You have no excuse not to have incredible hair all summer long because these summer hair tips are so easy to implement into any beauty regimen! In addition, Dusty recommends using a hydrating shampoo and conditioner, his Kronos Hydresse line is amazing, to reduce chlorine and sun damage. It’s also very important to give your hair an intense treatment at least twice a month to correct any damage.

 

Another awesome and easy summer hair tip is to spray Kronos Liquid Theory onto hair after ever tip in the pool or before a day in the sun to protect from sun and color damage; additionally, it helps control frizz, conditions and enhances shine!  There’s no reason not to be using it!

Hope these hair tips help you and your mane have a gorgeous summer! Watch celebrity hairstylist Dusty’s video to learn all his tips and find out how to win all of these Kronos products below!

    I enjoy walking/jogging outside and working in the yard, both of which take a toll on my hair with sun exposure and sweat (lots of sweat).

    I love hanging out by the pool and I am always worried about my hair-color being destroyed by the chlorine. I color my hair every 6 weeks. At the same time, I am taking very good care of it: I do overnight hair masks, or pre-washing treatments with hair oil…I would love to win the Kronos line since I have read all the great reviews!! I want my hair to be touched only by the best products out there! Thanks

    I love swimming but I’ve learned through years of hair disasters that as a red hair, chlorine tends to give my red locks a sort of greenish hue, not to mention the brassiness that occurs. Trying to repair this issue is extremely expensive and often, once the damage is done is hard to fix without cutting out the damage. Salt water from the ocean in combination with the heat of the sun turns my hair into locks of straw. As such, the one sport which I used to love so much, I’ve had to cut out of my life or pay the price for with horribly damaged hair. In addition, my hair is so long and the ends are so susceptible to damage. To have a product which acts as a sunscreen (Kronos Liquid Theory) so my hair won’t fade and become uneven in addition to applying a hair mask ( Phyx Intensive Hair Repair Masque) which would condition and protect my hair would allow me to finally be able to participate again in ll my favorite summertime activities.

    I also love Dusty’s tip about wetting your hair with tap water before going swimming in a chlorinated pool. The way Dusty explains it, since hair is like a sponge—it is made up of 3 layers and absorbs everything. Chlorine can damage hair ends causing split ends and increased frizz. To avoid this damage, especially to your hair cuticles, if you wet your hair with tap water before taking a dunk in the pool, your hair follicles fill up with water instead of chlorine causing much less damage to the hair.

    One of my biggest problems I have with my hair during the warm, humid days of summer is frizziness. By spraying wet hair with Kronos’ leave-in conditioner Liquid Theory followed by applying a light layer of Phyx Intensive Hair Repair Masque, and then pulling hair back into a sleek ponytail, keeping your hair off your face and preventing it from knotting up by blowing all over the place,, one can still look stylish and neat, all the while still protecting the quality of your hair, leaving you with gorgeous, head turning locks.

    I’d love to try these products. It certainly would make my summer a whole lot more fun.

    Good luck to all and thank you for showing your loyal fans some love by doing all these wonderful giveaways.
