You didn’t seriously think that you were ready for the warm weather just yet, did you?
It’s all happening, guys—we’re leaving our apartments with one too many layers on, starting to complain that it’s a little too warm on public transit, and we’re actually wanting to wake up early to go for a morning jog. All these signs point to the fact that the months of sunbathing and bottomless margs are upon us. But even though we’ve been counting down the days to this since, uh, the end of summer last year, we’re finding ourselves ill-prepared for what lies ahead, hence why we’re currently dependent on everything below to get our hair and skin ready for the glorious months ahead.

You didn’t honestly think we forgot about your hair, did you? Nah, your head top needs a whole lotta lovin’ in the warmer months—summer-proof your hair now, thank us later.
