Summer Curl Care - Ouidad Sun Shield

Ouidad Sun Shield - Defend against Wind, Sun, Salt & Chlorine


A favorite all year 'round in Florida,  Ouidad Sun Shield is a great defense against elements that are ever present in our sunny climate. With a texture similar to OC milk, with specially formulated ingredients to keep curls shiny and supple, this spray is a great addition to your beach bag, and possibly your everyday routine. Here's what Ouidad has to say about her product:

"The sun is not only dangerous to your skin but it can also wreak havoc on your hair -causing its color to turn or fade and drying out already thirsty curls. Sun Shield Sun & Sport Leave-in Conditioner protects against sun damage with effective UV blockers, which form an invisible breathable shield to lock out the elements. Spray on prior to sun exposure and any time by the pool or beach when you want to create softer, smoother, shinier curls. 

Also effective against damaging environmental factors like wind, salt and chlorine, Sun Shield's blend of special proteins and amino acids seal in moisture and nourish hair while shielding from overexposure to the drying and stiffening elements common to outdoor activity."

coconut oil treatment & apple cider vinegar rinse for curly hair

I'm a little obsessed with coconut oil right now.  I've been using it as a "pre-conditioner" in the salon, I melt anywhere from 2 tablespoons to 1/2 cup of coconut oil (depending on how much i need to really saturate the hair from root to end, then apply it to dry hair.

If you do this at home, you can do it hours before you plan to wash it - I sleep with it in my hair and wash it out with Loreal Professional Delicate Color Sulfate Free Shampoo the next morning. If you're a no-poo-er, I suggest using the Ouidad Cleansing Oil instead.  You can condition your hair as usual, or, for extra awesomeness, follow with an apple cider vinegar rinse  use up to half acv to half water, or try using 2 parts water to 1 part acv.  Let that site for at least 2 minutes, RINSE WELL.  Be SO careful not to get it in your eyes, it burns like a BITCH. It's not harsh on your hair, though - the acidity of the vinegar is actually very gentle on the cuticle helping to close it down as …
