Summer Hair Care - New Options


Jennifer Lopez

Generally speaking there are some standard well-known Summertime hair care rules to folow. These include:

1. Protect scalp with sunscreen. 2. Keep tresses well-hydrated with lots of H2O as well as application of leave-in conditioners and regular deep conditioning treatments. 3. Utilize products specifically designed to protect sun exposed tresses. 4. Give your hair a break and opt for air-drying and abstinence from heat styling tools as often as possible. 5. Wear protective headgear during extended sun exposure times. 6. Rinse tresses with bottled or spring water before and after taking a dip in a chlorine pool or the ocean even with a swim cap. 7. Keep hair pinned up during a ride in a convertible to avoid excessing tangling and breakage. 8. Make sure ends are trimmed to prevent additional seasonal damage.

New Summer Hair Care Options

Change up your regular summer hair care regimes by considering the following options:

1. Substitute H2O for unsweetened iced black, green and herbal teas. According to the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition iced teas are equally hydrating as water but offer heart-healthy antioxidants as well.

2. Spend 10-20 minutes outside su

He told me the gorgeous star loved the highest quality products from lines such as Phyto, Rene Furterer and Leonor Greyl.

Thus it was no surprise when I picked up the November 2009 issue of Elle magazine and saw an interview with celebrity hair maestro Juan Carlos Maciques who also works with Ms. Lopez when she's in New York.

Juan holds court in celebrity hair colorist Rita Hazan's eponymous salon. Rita has been the hair color genius behind Jennifer for many years.

Juan dished that "before blowouts" on Jennifer's locks he applies Phyto 9. He explained "not only does it add shine" it also "enhances texture" for a natural finish. Having using many a tube of Phyto 9 on my own hair over the years I can concur with Juan's notes.

Although Phyto 9, and it's lighter companion, Phyto 7, are not the least expensive leave-in conditioning creams on the hair care market, they are worth their weight in gold and will last and last. That's the key many hair consumers may be missing while trying to balance the budget. While other leave-in creams may be less expensive, they aren't as high quality and don't last anywhere near as long.

What else does Juan use on the lovely Jennifer to give her hair that amazing shimmer? He uses another one of my favs, Leonor Greyl's Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice. Although less well-known that the Phyto line, Leonor Greyl is considered one of the very top hair care lines along with Rene Furterer and JF Lazartique.

Juan explains Leonor Greyl "ensures that styles survive the after-party." He noted the product "gives hair amazing body that lasts."

Another secret about Leonor Greyl is that it's the official hair care line of No Doubt. Which in itself speaks volumes.


In summarizing his relationship with Jennifer Lopez the popular Juan told Elle Magazine "she is not just a client, but also a muse. She loves to change and play dress-up. She is very willing to experiment and is glamorous."
