STRENGTHEN HAIR WHILE AT THE POOL OR BEACH
Summer Hair tends to get dry so if you are going to the beach or pool do this to protect your hair: Put Olaplex on dry hair and throw it in a top knot while you bask in sun. Olaplex will repair, multiply, and strengthen the bonds in your hair leaving you with sexy luxurious hair. Adriana uses Olaplex on her clients to protect and maintain the beautiful sexy luster in their hair.
COCONUT OIL NATURE’S MIRACLE
Coconut oil is fantastic for hair, skin and health. Coconut oil will help prevent blondes from going green while swimming in the pool. It will also protect and moisturize your ends and is incredible for curly hair. This is an inexpensive way to get sexy hair and smell delicious at the same time!
CHIC SLICK PONYTAIL
