Evening with EDEN: A Summer Hair Affair

A few weeks back I was on a panel regarding summer hair with EDEN Bodyworks. The evening was co-hosted by my girl Mischo Beauty and including Tia Williams of Shake Your Beauty (my beauty godmother), Shirley Gordon of Strands Hair Studios and EDEN’s Vice President of Marketing Ylorie Anderson. I had just gotten back from Jamaica and I was ready to talk hair. The key is good hair = healthy hair.

My main hair motto for summer is “city hair is not beach hair.” This means let go of the flat irons, tons of styling aids, and be free. You can’t have city hair at the beach and why would you want too. You have to condition your hair before getting in the pool or going to the beach. Cowash back in your room and deep condition once you get back.

When I first saw Shirley walk in I was like “this woman is going to color my hair for the summer.” I have never said that. But I could tell she was a master colorist and would keep my hair healthy and beautiful. I can’t wait to see her magic for myself. I also was told I need a hair steamer. That’s on the list for later this month.

Here are a few takeaways from the event.

  • No mineral oil ever. In my Joan Collins Mommy Dearest voice.
  • Deep condition, deep condition, deep condition. I can’t say enough about deep conditioning. This should be done year round and weekly.
  • Hair sunscreen. Yes, they make sunscreen for you hair. Find some, use it diligently, and be on  your way.
  • Condition before you shampoo. I can see your eyes glazing over on this one. Seriously, try it. I tested it with the EDEN BodyWorks JojOba Monoi collection and I am hooked on this method.
  • If you color your hair – no clarifying shampoo at all.
  • Try a hair regimen for at least 3 weeks before you give up on it. None of this I tried it once and forget about it. Stick with it for a few weeks to give it the full testing it deserves. If it doesn’t work after that, let it go.
  • What goes in the inside comes out on the outside. Water is your friend. Drink up. Also hair vitamins, biotin, and diet also contribute to your hair.
