Summer is here, and along with it the big question of how you’re going to deal with your hair over the next few hot months. These are the hairstyle trends I’ve discovered for summer 2012.

Towel dry and separate hair into two sections for a fishtail braid. Take thin pieces of hair from opposite sides and overlap them. Repeat until you reach the ends and fasten with an elastic, wrapping a small strand of hair around to conceal the band. To add shine and prevent frizz, finish by dispensing a pump of Suave Professionals® Keratin Infusion Smooth & Shine Serum in the palm of your hand and using your fingers to go over the braid.

If you just can’t seem to wrap your mind around it, like me, check out some easy to follow tutorials here and here.

Apply a dime-sized amount of new Suave Professionals® Keratin Infusion Smooth & Shine Serum to damp hair to add shine and fight humidity. Use fingers to comb through strands. Blow dry straight using a paddle brush and a concentrator attachment on your dryer. Extend your tresses on day-two and keep your style sleek by spraying roots with new Suave Professionals® Keratin Infusion Dry Shampoo to refresh hair and soak up excess oil.

Need some tutorials? I needed a few, because my hair is overwhelmingly curly and coarse and I couldn’t imagine it could ever look that straight. This one and this one helped me out.

Give second day curls a little extra “oomph” with Suave Professionals® Waterless Foam Shampoo. It’s formulated with aloe leaf and jojoba & revives dry and curly hair between washes – no water needed! Apply a dollop of product to the crown and work through hair with fingers. Pat dry with a towel to remove any excess moisture. Then lightly condition hair for renewed shine and smoothness by spritzing ends with Suave Professionals® Dry Conditioner.
