Summer hair care - christine cameron

Last March, I started my transition to becoming a blonde, and ever since I’ve been picking up tips on how to take care of my lighter locks. The last time I was this blonde, I was in college and I definitely didn’t take very good care of my hair, but now that I have the resources as well as great experts at my fingertips, I’ve made a pact with myself to actually do it right this time around. So with that said, I wanted to share a few summer hair care tips that I picked up from Elaine, the Senior Creative Director at the Sassoon Salon in New York!

I’m so excited to finally be able to announce my partnership with Sassoon as a Sassoon Style Influencer! I’ve been working with the brand for the past couple months now and have been in and out of the salon working working with the Color Director, Valencia to create the perfect shade of blonde and the Senior Creative Director, Elaine, to shape and cut my hair to just the right length.

Last month, my sweet friend Krystal came into the salon with me one afternoon and we selected hairstyles off of their Blow & Style menu. The team then created a fun video of our time there and some fun behind the scenes to show you how it’s done. I hope you guys enjoy!

Whenever I go into a salon to get my hair done, the stylist always comments on the fact that I have fine hair but a ton of it, which can be great because with the right product they can create a ton of volume and I can keep my hair styled without it falling flat in five minutes. But like I said, it all depends what product I use. The problem usually begins with my shampoo and conditioner, since anything too heavy immediately takes the “umph” out of my hair…

I don’t know about you guys, but I love a heady, musky fragrance all day, every day. I find that I am often drawn to men’s cologne because of their woodsy, heavier scents and usually stay away from anything too sweet or floral. And instead of just wearing this type of perfume in winter, when spicier, pungent fragrances are more “acceptable or appropriate” I love wearing this kind of perfume all year round. This is definitely a personal preference but after chatting about it with different friends and colleagues, I now know I am not alone in this.

As spring turns to summer, and the weather becomes thick and balmy, I find that heavier fragrances match the elements and it becomes my favorite time to spritz a light dusting of a musky scent on my neck, inner elbow, back of knees, and a bit in my hair for good measure. Throughout the day I love how the spicy smell rises with the heat and creates a very heady, aromatic, bold statement that builds throughout the day.

And with that said, here are my top seven sexy scents for spring and summer…

Fragrances listed clockwise:

Oud by Ralph Lauren:

Smoky guaiac wood, spicy incense, and earthy cedar to evoke the spirit of the African savannah.

Santal 33 by Le Labo:

Woody, rich scent opens with violet accord and cardamom.

Edition 02 – Shiso by Goop:

Shiso leaf (also known as perilla) is the unexpected star of this scent, which is slightly spicy/fresh characteristic that’s green, earthy, and delicate all at once. It slowly opens up into spicy greens, crushed stems, and ancient exotic woods.

Windsor by D.R. Harris & Co. Ltd:

Plenty of herbal overtones with some citrus smell. It’s quite complex, changing as the cologne dries and gradually gets a bit of patchouli, vetiver and black pepper to it.

Stash by SJP:

An aromatic woody fragrance that captures light and dark while merging notes of cedarwood atlas, vetiver, and pistachio.

Black Orchid by Tom Ford:

Black truffle, bergamot, black orchid, black plum, noir gourmand accord, patchouli.

Moab by Phlur:

Long pepper, clove, vanilla, jasmine and tonka bean.

My hair before using Drybar’s Detox Whipped Dry Shampoo Foam. Slightly flat with a hint of oil, some noticeable separation and in desperate need of a pick me up!

I love wearing my hair both straight and curly, so I wanted to show you guys that you can easily use this product on either kind of style without messing it up. Because I have fine hair, but a lot of it, I try not to wash my hair everyday because otherwise it can start to look limp and flat if it’s too “clean.” With that said dry shampoo has become my best friend – I rely on it to give my hair texture and keep it looking fresh. I promise, if you were to take a look into my bathroom cabinet, you would find a million bottles of different dry shampoos because I always love trying out different kinds to see which is my favorite. Case in point, I was very excited to partner with Drybar and try out their new Drybar Detox Whipped Dry Shampoo Foam since I am already a fan of their shops and other products! I love that Detox Whipped adds lift and body to my hair no matter if I’ve styled it curly or straight.

Here we go!

You just need a small amount – a little goes a long way! First shake it well. Then dispense a small amount into your palm and rub your hands together. Use your fingers to apply to the roots and massage gently until the foam disappears completely. 

It’s nuts because it feels like you are putting mousse into your hair and are sure it’s going to mess up whatever hair style you have at the moment, but it doesn’t! In fact, it does the opposite and instead, the foam absorbs excess oils, leaving your hair feeling fresh and clean with no stickiness or crunchiness. As much as I have loved my traditional dry shampoo, I will say, I’m a Detox Whipped convert! I’m obsessed with how there is no powdery residue or inhalation of product when spraying it into my hair. Plus the Detox Whipped dry shampoo foam has a lovely fragrance, so your hair will smell great, just like it was freshly washed even if it’s been a few days. It can be your little secret!

Et voila! The finished look having used the product on both curly and straight hair! I can see such a visible difference in the volume and lift with the curls, and the clean and sleek look with the straight hair. What do you guys think? Are you dry shampoo fans? Would you try Detox Whipped dry shampoo foam? After testing it out and then using it almost everyday for about a week and a half, I can say that I highly recommend it! xo

I wish I was one of those people that when their head hits the pillow they fall asleep immediately. But unfortunately I tend to be more of a night owl and hit my stride in the evening, finding it hard to stop and make myself go to bed a decent hour. But now that I am in my 30s, getting enough sleep is much more important to me than it was when I was younger, and seeing that it can be tricky for me to actually put myself to bed and get that important rest, I decided I needed to start somewhere and begin a weekly routine so that when Monday rolls around, I feel refreshed, hydrated, rested and ready to take on the week. So what better time to start than on a Sunday night, right? Here we go!

But let’s back up a bit and start from the beginning…
