Tools of the Trade: Summer Hair Essentials

I’ve been growing my hair out for my wedding in November and let me just say, I’ve learned that maintaining silky smooth tresses is like working a part-time job. The good news is it’s been manageable thanks to a few of my favorite hair products and tools. Read on to find out more about my summer hair essentials…

Summer Hair Essentials - Politics of Pretty

EcoTools Smoothing Detangler—This lightweight brush not only detangles, but helps manage frizz and static flyaways. I use this when styling my bangs (I brush side to side so my bangs lay flat and fit the frame of my forehead). I also like to use this for a sleek and straight blowout.

EcoTools Full Volume Styler—My hair has always lacked in the volume department, and this brush gives me that little extra oomph I need. It has an aerodynamic Eco-Vent design that allows for faster drying time and less heat damage.

Bumble and Bumble Thickening Full Foam Mousse—I love this cushiony crème formula that gives the illusion that I have thick hair. A little goes a long way, I work the product through damp hair and my hair always feels so soft after blow drying.

Redken Guts 10—With DC humidity in full force, I’ve been spritzing my hair with this best-selling spray to control flyaways and keep my hair in check. I’ve always been picky about hair spray but this offers control without any sticky residue. If you don’t want to commit to the $18 bottle, Ulta sells a travel-size version for $8.50.
