Spring break has arrived and it’s time to pool hop and cruise the beach. I’ve been a long time fan of the John Frieda products for blondes, and this week, I tried out their new BEACHblonde Cool Dip shampoo, Smooth Seas detangling conditioner, and the Sea Waves sea salt spray.
I don’t know about you guys, but when I smell mint I think of mojitos, and when I think of mojitos, I think of summer. What I’m trying to say is, this shampoo and conditioner smell like I imagine summer should smell if it were transformed into hair products. Washing your hair seems like less of a chore when it leaves your hair smelling fantastic, fresh, and minty. The shampoo and conditioner are refreshing and hydrating, which is a blonde hair necessity in the summer whether you’re a natural or a bleach blonde!
First, I shampooed and conditioned my hair with the John Frieda BEACHblonde Cool Dip and Smooth Seas, and added the Luxurious Volume In-Shower Treatment for extra volume. It doesn’t make a huge difference for me on a single use, but it does add strength and texture to brittle ends. I towel dried my hair and spritzed the Sea Waves sea salt spray all over my hair. I love a good sea salt spray. On days when you don’t have time to run the curling wand through your whole head of hair, sea salt spray and a diffuser can be a great alternative. I ran my fingers through my hair and scrunched and twisted different pieces. I used a diffuser attachment to blow dry my hair to maximize the volume and bounce. Once my hair was dry, I tousled my hair with a bit of pomade to make sure there were no frizzy pieces or flyaways.
With that, I was ready to head out the door in a short amount of time with a style that looks effortless and appropriate for swimming. Did I mention how amazing this salt spray smells? Let’s just say that when I close my eyes and smell my hair, I feel like I’m on a tropical vacation.
