The Best Summer Hair Care Products

“Invest in your hair. It’s the crown you never take off”

We interrupt your Nordstrom Anniversary Sale shopping to bring you some hair care tips today! I don’t know about you, but there are just way too many sales right now to keep track of. As much as I’d love to shop the anniversary sale, I’m just not ready to buy fall clothes. MAKE SUMMER LAST LONGER PLEASE!

Anyways, for those of you in need of a break from the sale, I thought I’d show off a few of my favorite hair care products for the summer. Taking care of your hair is essential all year long but especially during the summer. No one wants dry, frizzy locks while they’re sunbathing…hell NO! So take a look at these products and get your hair looking and feeling its absolute best.

(Don’t forget…you can shop these hair products on my LTKI page! Feel free to message me if you have any questions about the app)


Living Proof Dry Shampoo

I’ve tried SO many different dry shampoos but non compare to this one from Living Proof! This hair care brand will always be one of my favorites because of the scent. It always makes me feel like I just stepped out of the salon! When your hair is getting too oily and looks like a hot mess, this dry shampoo will save the day and keep your hair looking fresh all summer long.

Verb Ghost Shampoo and Conditioner

When you’ve colored your hair as much as I have, you gotta find hair care products that protect the color and keep your hair looking healthy. I love this shampoo and conditioner especially for summer because the formula is incredibly lightweight and cleans my hair without needing to apply too much. If you’re looking for a shampoo/conditioned that isn’t heavily scented, you’ll love these babies from Verb!

DevaCurl Wave Maker

As much as I love styling my hair, it’s good to give your hair a break once in a while. Summer is a perfect time to put away the blow dryer and let your wavy locks fly free (that is, if you have wavy hair)! This hair cream is amazing for enhancing curls and waves, giving you a great beachy look without sea salt sucking up all the moisture. Your hair will feel hydrated, smell fruity and you won’t be damaging your hair like you would be with other beach wave products!

What are my Summer Must Haves?

“She acts like summer and walks like rain.”

I have to say (in case you don’t know me) summer is my favorite time of the year! Christmas is a SUPER close second but I just love the beautiful weather in the summer. What’s crazy is that it’s already mid July…where the hell has summer gone?!?!?

Anyways with July flying by, I thought this would be a great opportunity to share some of my summer must haves in my closet. Even though this summer is going by so quickly, no reason you can’t still go out and get some new cute pieces. And trust me, y’all will love my picks for summer!

(As always, you can shop all these pieces on my LTKI page. And feel free to send me a message if you’re not sure how to use the app).


Floral Kimono

I’m a girl who loves a kimono, what can I say? This floral one is especially perfect for summer and I’ve definitely been wearing this baby A LOT this year. The material is super light, the pattern and color are so gorgeous and this kimono is under $20. What a steal, right? You’ll have to add this to your list of summer must haves (PS this kimono comes in a ton of different colors and prints, so you got options!)

Striped Jumpsuit

A couple years ago, I thought rompers and jumpsuits were so stupid. Like why not just wear a dress, ya know? Well I’ve finally seen the light more recently and have fallen in love with jumpsuits. This one from Urban Outfitters is so cute for summer! I love the breathable fabric and the colors are so bright and fun…basically had to add it to my summer must haves.

Studded Slides

Anyone who’s even somewhat active on Instagram has probably seen these Marc Fisher sandals everywhere. Basically you’re not an influencer until you own these (not really, but you know what I mean). These slides are super comfy and I love how versatile they are. The studs are stylin’ and they can really dress up even the most casual summer looks. Trust me, you need these shoes!

Black Shorts

Of course some basic shorts had to make my summer must haves list! Shorts are a definitely staple for me during the summer, especially these black ones. These shorts are super comfy and they have some light destruction on them, so you’ll feel trendy wearing them. What I love about shorts is how you can pair them with basically any kind of top and you’ll look fab!
