Summer hair care products we love

Summer is a time to give your hair a break from heating products and to play with loose braids and other relaxed hair styles. We’ve rounded up some new and classic products that will keep your hair healthy and beautiful all season. A few of the products mentioned here were introduced to me at a hair event hosted by G My Hair with Monat at Salon Forty Four Eleven in Dallas. Here, I learned about the Monat collection and learned how it does wonders for all hair types.

Before you try out any Monat products, take this hair quiz. The results will show which products are best for your hair.


If your hair is anything like mine, it has a lot of breakage, split ends and dryness. The Revive Shampoo and Conditioner shown here are a part of the Volume Treatment System. And thank goodness my hair can finally get some proper treatment! These products work together to increase hair density, strength and manageability. After trying this set, my hair immediately felt soft and showed shine. The third product in this group is the root lifter. Not only does it add volume to your hair, it helps grow hair in thinning areas. A triple whammy if I must say! These are solid products to use year round, too. ($99; $84 for Monat VIP customers)

At the salon event, I learned how this bottle of Rejuvabeads by Monat will repair split ends 3mm long and shorter within one minute. All you need is a couple of little drops, and apply it on your ends. A little bit goes a long way here….the effects last for about 2-3 washes. ($49; $42 for Monat VIP members)


Here are Monat’s products for men in the Monat Black collection. (Let’s be real…guys don’t always know what they’re doing when it comes to hair and skin care!) The 2-in-1 system cleanses and conditions while maintaining essential moisture and balance for youthful, healthy hair. It also helps boost natural hair growth and reduces hair thinning. The Groom Styling Clay is perfect to create textured looks on his hair. Of course the Cream Shave leaves skin smooth and sleek. And, the Aftershave + Moisturizer is a velvety mix that soothes skin and hydrates skin. ($99 for the entire set; $84 for VIP members)


Monat also carries a hair care line for kids, from 0-9 years. The products come in an adorable packaging and are TEAR FREE. The products prevent the hair from drying out and keeps kids’ hair healthy and growing. (Shampoo and Conditioner: $24/ea; Detangler: $22; get all three for $59 or $50 for Monat VIP members)


In addition to these great products, Monat carries some more items you may find useful. First, the Eye Wonder helps stimulate growth of eyelashes and eyebrows. ($59; $50 for Monat VIP members).

Extreme heat damage on the hair will also affect your scalp. The Rejuvenique Oil Intensive is made up of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, beta-carotene and omega-3 fatty acids…and this is the combined power that will nourish your scalp. The formula prevents hair thinning and adds volume to your hair. ($99;$84 for Monat VIP members).

The Only for You bottle is exclusive to VIP members. Spray this on your hair for a sleek, shiny look.


Here are a few other products that are practical to use during the sunniest of days.

Beach Wave Spray by Kristin Ess: This is a different type of wave spray…it goes on AFTER you wave or air dry your hair. It’s a light formula and won’t leave hair crunchy. ($14 from Target)

Smooth Infusion by Aveda: Ideal for humid situations. Say bye to frizz! ($26 from Aveda)

Volume and Fullness Dry Shampoo by Dove: This lifesaving hair product refreshes hair between washes. It cuts out the oil and adds fullness to your hair. ($4.49 from Walgreens)

Heat Tamer by TRESemme: If you’re using a flat iron or blow dryer, especially during the summer, you need heat protection on your delicate hair. This spray protects your hair from up to 450 degrees of heat. ($3.99 from Target)
