Tony & Guy Summer

It’s a beastly summer, this one! The heat is scorching up everything under the sun… The beach, the streets and summer pool parties. In all the revelry, don’t forget to groom your crowning glory… your mane bears the brunt of the hot summer sun so here are a few hair care and grooming Must Dos to make your locks rock this summer!

Olive Oil Hair massage:

Olive Oil

If you don’t have the time to do it once a week, atleast get a hot olive oil hair massage twice a month- Yes, it does sound like granny’s advice but it really is the most time tested rule for healthy, fuss-free hair.

Shampoo and leave In:

Just like sunscreen for your skin, your tresses deserve protection from heat as well! Leave in conditioners come armed with SPF and keep your hair tangle and fizz free. What’s not to like? Dab some into towel dried hair and style as needed.

Body Shop Leave in Conditioner

Body Shop Banana Shampoo

Lush Shampoo

Natural Ingredients

Use a natural fruit based or hand made shampoo this summer and see the difference! I’m a big fan of Bodyshop and Lush so I recommend the Banana shampoo which smells yummy and adds gloss, along with the amla leave in conditioner. Lush also has an army of shampoos and conditioners to choose from this summer… indulge your mane this season!


Now after you’ve taken care of those summer hair horrors, its time to dress up your tresses! It’s a flurry of color, texture and shapes out there! Here are some of the top hair accessories trends that we love…

Clips, pins and bob pins:

Perfect for short hair and pixies, these come in a variety of colors. Go crazy girl… use them imaginatively!

This blog seems to get an impressive deal of visitors. How do you advertise it? It gives a nice individual twist on things. I guess having something real or substantial to talk about is the most important factor. I will bookmark your website and spread the word around.
