And the beach, well, there's no sitting in a beach chair sipping pina coladas- no ma'am!! My 3 year old Jack (shown in the picture with me with the alligator net-story to follow) wants only to run into the crashing waves every single minute...and did I mention he can't swim?? Not so relaxing. And my 1 year old Walker, pretty much hates the ocean, and the dry sand, and only wants to be on flat cool sand, and doesn't want to build sand castles because that would require sitting. Not so relaxing. Packing up the two of them to actually go to the beach and then returning back to our beach house and removing every bit of sand from two boys is equally as tiring. BUT, it is lovely to be at the beach, and I'm not complaining...am I?
How does all this relate back to makeup and beauty??
As you can see in this picture of me and my son Jack, I am looking in horror because he has trapped an alligator (fake) with a net in the back of our beach home...and my hair has that two day, no shampooed, textured sandy beach look-equally as scary as fake alligators.
I refuse to deal with blow drying while on vacation-it's pointless because the humidity is so bad that a blow out kinks right back up. But there is a new product out that can help with deep fried summer hair: The fix is Aveeno Nourish + Condition Leave In Treatment ($7.50) that deep conditions and moisturizers in this leave-in Wheat-Complex-infused formula that instantly recharges dry, damaged hair with healthy, new life! There is also a shampoo in this category that is nourishing and moisturizing. Leave in treatments are ideal during the summer and especially while at the beach since it's a no fuss way to treat your dry hair and there's no rinsing required!!
Cool beauty tip for hot summer months. Now it's time to get back to my semi-relaxing vacation- with better hair atleast!
