How to keep your hair cool this summer

In summer time, our hair can become dank, dull and heavy. Here, Christine Karan offers some tips on how to de-stress those tresses and keep cool.



It’s that time of year again. During summer there are those chants of “it’s sooooo hot!”. Our hot and dry climate can make us irritable, irascible and ready to vent when we’re not heading for the AC vent. Sometimes, we just want to lop off our lustrous locks just to get some cool air on our necks. 

But keep your hair on, as the British say: there’s no need to resort to desperate measures. With the right hairstyle you can be stylish, sharp and swank in every possible way. 

The key to any good hairstyling is a good-quality comb or brush.  

If you have been using your comb for more than two years, it’s time for a change. 

If you are a comb kind of a girl, then grab a simple one from H&M. If you are looking for a brush, then Hershesons offer a mixed-bristles oval brush that’s perfect for de-tangling your hair.
