This weekend unofficially kicks off Summer and I couldn't be more ready for it! I like to take a low-key approach to my beauty routine during the warmer months but my hair is one part of that routine that can not be neglected. Having fine, thin, color-treated blonde hair my locks need TLC no matter what the season. This is also the time I like to lighten my blonde up to a I spent all day sipping mai tai's on the beach sun kissed look with SunIn Natural Hair Highlights. Here are a few of my favorite hair products for keeping my hair lighter, brighter and healthy all Summer long!

John Frieda Go Blonder Lightening Shampoo
This shampoo from John Frieda is excellent for bringing out both natural and color treated highlights. It gradually deposits yellow tones for blonder-looking hues and is mild enough for daily use. If you're blonde don't be afraid of adding more warmth! It can really add a beautiful, natural, sun kissed look to your blonde that looks incredibly natural.

SunIn Hair Lightener Spray
SunIn has been around since the 70's - so, they must be doing something right! Sunshine for your hair? Sort of. It's heat activated, not just SUN-activated. So, you can lighten up your locks with a hair dryer. What's great is that it can be used ALL YEAR LONG. I used SunIn to brighten up during the Fall and shared how it worked for me then HERE. Now that I am craving a sun kissed Summer blonde I am reaching for it once again!

SunIn gives you the same natural highlights you get from the sun - only faster! SunIn’s advanced conditioning system includes botanical extracts and special illuminators that give hair an extra dose of shine. It is also alcohol-free and for both blondes and brunettes. The pleasantly light tropical breeze scent smells like you're on a Hawaiian island!

Getting your hair professionally lightened can get expensive and be damaging. Sun-In conditions while it lightens. I really appreciate this having fine hair that gets damaged easily. My hair feels soft, and healthy after using this. The convenience of being able to spritz this on my hair, go out for the day, and come back with pretty sunkissed highlights is awesome! No sitting in a salon for 4 hours!

It's so simple and easy to use! Spray SunIn on damp hair. Comb through to evenly distribute. For a sun-streaked look, spray only the strands you want highlighted. Bring out the results with a hairdryer or spend the day out enjoying the Summer sun. 

I spritz SunIn on to the ends of my hair to create a brighter, uniform golden blonde. You can find SunIn at your local Walmart or online for under $5! Such a steal for beautiful, sun streaked naturally highlighted hair.

Pureology Perfect 4 Platinum Cool Blondes Treatment
This color-depositing, blonde conditioner helps preserve tone and neutralize brassiness for radiant cool blondes. After you have added some natural highlights with SunIn reach for this. It tones that blonde further in to cool-toned territory while deep-conditioning your hair. Perfect 4 Platinum's breakthrough strengthening technology with protein-rich keravis-nature's most powerful anti-breakage hair fortifier-provides internal and external strengthening. Chamomile, lemon and coriander extracts soften, clarify to increase brightness, and nourish to magnify shine. I love using this treatment to refresh my color once a month!

Malibu Blondes Wellness Remedy
These little packets are saviors if your hair has gone brassy from hard-water or product buildup. They instantly transform natural, highlighted, and bleached blondes from dull to dazzling. The treatment removes anything that might be dulling your true blonde brilliance to reveal dazzling shiny hair. I use one of these packets every few weeks to banish brass and add some bounce back to my hair.

Orlando Pita Play Recast Tinted Oil Spray Glaze
Recast Tinted Oil Spray Glaze refreshes color with temporary copper pigments that intensifies and enhances red and copper tones. The sheer, illuminating finish highlights hair and adds subtle dimension.  Orlando Pita Recast Tinted Oil Spray Glaze is available in four different shades: Golden Blonde, Copper, Brunette, & Chestnut. No matter your hair color you can give your shade a amplified color boost!

Being able to enhance your color and add dimension with out having to color it is fantastic. Especially in the Summer when hair is susceptible extra damage from UV rays and salt water. On my medium light blonde hair the Golden Blonde shade of Recast Tinted Oil Spray Glaze adds a pretty golden blonde tint with lovely shine and radiance. Recast behaves like a texturizing spray with out leaving any obvious residue or crunchy texture behind. I love using this as my finishing spray!

OLAPLEX Hair Perfector No. 3
I was introduced to OLAPLEX by my stylist who had been using the two-step process in my color service.  Now I use the Step 3 at home to keep my hair strong and healthy. The concentrated treatment strengthens the hair from within, reducing breakage and improving its look and feel. As a blonde breakage is almost inevitable, but OLAPLEX strengthens and repairs the hair from within. It's not just a mask for damage, it truly fixes it. Every two weeks I put this on my hair for about an hour and I have seen less breakage and improvement in my hair strength overall. If you have color-treated or lightened hair it is a must-have for maintaining the health of your blonde hair!
