06 Aug The “Frizz Whisperer”, Vaso Spirou shares her tips for surviving the August heat and humidity
Vaso Spirou, has built her reputation on perfectly taming unruly locks in Miami’s hot and humid weather. Her self-titled Salon Vaso offers the latest in hair, body and nail treatments for both women and men and has become a go-to beauty spot for Miami’s tastemakers.
Miami summers are known for record high temperatures and fickle weather. Vaso Spirou shares her tips to beat the heat and keep healthy, shiny hair all summer long.
Essential Oils: According to Spirou, essential oils are great for maintaining smooth, shiny hair during the summer season. Her favorite summer beauty product is Phyto’s Phytoplage for ultra dry hair, a protective sun oil with maximum sun protection. Spirou’s secret is to dilute an ampule of the Phyto’s Phytoplage Oil in a spray bottle with water and spritz on your hair before going out in the sun. It’s the perfect addition to your beach bag this summer.
Color Gloss: Spirou raves color glossing is the secret to keeping hair healthy and full of shine during hot, humid days. She recommends using color gloss treatments on your hair as often as once every six weeks, even if it’s just a clear gloss.
At Home Hair Care: After shampooing and conditioning your hair, Spirou proposes rinsing well with cold water and using the cold button on your blow dryer. This cool down will calm your hair cuticle and give extra shine. Spirou advises to stay away from products that have creamy consistencies and suggests giving your hair a quick spritz of Alfaparf Semi di Lino Cristalli Illuminating Finishing Spray for an added boost of brilliance.
No-Heat Styling: Spirou recommends limiting heat styling to just once a week during the hot summer months. To prevent damage and dryness, she recommends using Alfaparf Midollo di Bamboo Therapy, a deep conditioning treatment, which treats over-processed and/or dry hair.
