When it comes to hair, we have all types in our home. With two little girls who love to try out new styles, this can be a bit of a challenge for me, since I cut and style the girls hair myself instead of paying salon prices.
My oldest, Ady, has very thin blonde hair that has a bit of wave if she really works with it, but tends to hang limp if she doesn’t.
My youngest daughter, Izy, has much thicker hair with a bit of wave to it, but at the young age of 5, she still has wispy baby hairs that are so soft and often refuse to cooperate.

On the other hand, I have hair that is so thick every time I visit a hair salon it’s almost guaranteed that the stylist will tell me at least 10 times that my hair is the thickest she’s ever seen and often charges me more. To add to that mess, my hair is naturally don’t-sit-behind-me-in-the-movie-theater-especially-on-a-humid-day curly. Basically, on a good day, my hair is somewhat controlled chaos.
It took me a long time to embrace and love my hair, but as I aged, I learned that styling products are important. Depending on what you’re trying to get your hair to do, the right styling products can make all the difference.
Nexxus brought us the challenge of trying out some of their products while attempting a few of their summer hair styles. The hairstyles were all sleek and straight, which long ago would have had me running scared. Straightening my hair use to take hours and usually didn’t last long. But, I found some secret weapons.
First, I struggle with split ends, so I was thrilled to see Nexxus Pro Mend products designed to tackle split ends in my goodie box! They did make it a lot easier to get a smooth look. In fact, I’ve already added these to my list of favorite hair styling products.
With the help of my very old Conair Styler Dryer and the right straightening products, I’ve mastered Nexxus Smooth Sleek Hair style after just blow drying, complete with flipped up ends, so there’s no need to spend extra time with a straightener or curling iron. You definitely need a good frizz defying product, like Nexxus Frizz Defy Line to pull it off and keep the look though. Acheiving Smooth Sleek Summer Styles with Nexxus
My daughter’s didn’t go simple though. Ady wanted to try out the Nexxus Elegant Side Chignon and though her hair was a lot shorter than the models, it still turned out cute.
Izy was longing for the Nexxus Weekend Chic side ponytail. This one didn’t turn out as well for us, but that’s because my tiny test-subject was extremely wiggly.
We even went on to try our own Nexxus summer hair style with three tiny buns in Ady’s hair.
You can check out all the Nexxus Summer Hair styles and get FREE step-by-step styling instructions on Walmart’s website. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any Nexxus coupons, but you can find Nexxus products at Walmart at their always low price!
