Must-Have Hair Tip: Celebrity Stylist Ursula Stephens Says This One Move Will Protect Your Hair This Summer


Ursula Stephens has been in the hair-slaying game for a minute.

With a celebrity roster of clients that includes Zendaya, Mary J. Blige and even Rihanna herself, Stephens knows what she’s talking about when it comes to keeping hair healthy. 

At this year’s ESSENCE Festival Stephens did a live demonstration and shared her surprising tips for slaying summer hair. One tip that truly caught our attention was her advice for keeping hair protected and healthy in the sweltering summer heat. 

Introducing your hair’s BFF: TRESemme Expert Selection Heat Protection Spray.

Of course, we’re very familiar with the idea of using a heat protectant before applying physical heat, in the form of blow dryers or flat irons, but we hadn’t considered the damage that the sun can also do to hair. 

Stephens says the sun can be just as, if not more damaging, than tools because during the summer’s extreme heat we’re out for prolonged periods of time. She suggests using a lightweight serum, such as TRESemme’s, as the last step in your wash-and-go routine. 

Let us know, have you ever used a heat protectant on your wash and go during the summer?
