It's very important to keep those lips thoroughly moisturized and hydrated this time of year, so my favor lip balm would be the Evolution of Smooth (E.O.S.) Lip Balm. These lips balms are mainly 95% organic, 100% natural, and paraben and petrolatum free. Packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil. They keep your lips moist, soft and sensationally smooth.

Head Wraps or Turbans are another must have for the summer. They are not only good for those bad hair days, but they also act as the perfect accessory to any hairstyle. You can use a long scarf or fabric to sweep your hair up into fabulous updo or bun keeping your hair off your neck during these hot months or you can choose to wear them over a wash'n'go, twist-out, or those goddess like Senegalese twists.
BB Creams are definitely on my list this summer. This quick 1-step product allows the skin to look flawless everyday. BB Creams are typicaly packed with 8 great skin benefits such as, Blurs imperfections, Brightens the skin, Evens out the skin tone, Smoothes, Hydrates, Enhances, Protects with SPF 30 which is so important this time of year, they contain 0% oils and heavy ingredients. You can definitely skip your 3-step face flawless face regimen and just add this to your regimen.
Coconut Oil is not only a must have for the summer, but for all year round. This light weight oil has so many uses, but when it comes to hair this oil is not only used to minimize frizz and to add shine to the hair during a time of year when the heat/sun can dry your hair out, but it also helps to lock in the moisture by acting as a sealant to the hair cuticles when applied in conjunction with a water based leave in conditioner or moisturize. This will aide in keeping the healthy and keeping it from being dry and brittle during this time of year.
Co-Washing my hair is so important because I don't want to strip my hair and I want it to stay moisturized and conditioner and co-washing does that all the while getting my hair and scalp clean. My favorite must have co-washes this summer are Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Conditioning Co-Wash, Aussie Moist Conditioner, & Pantene Truly Natural Hair Co-Wash.
Nappy Kinks Nubian Goddess Body Bronzer made my list because this Avocado and Sweet Almond oil based product gives the skin a beautiful sun-kissed glow without leaving the skin dry or sticky. It lasts all day and looks amazing on all skin shades.
These Essie Nail Polishes will definitely add the perfect accent to any summer dress or romper this season, so they are on the list. These long lasting and wearing polishes come in a variety of bright and bold colors that can suite the most daring or the most meek personality.
This Beautiful Textures Rapid Repair Deep Conditioner is a must have for the woman on the go this summer. This deep conditioner is enriched with Aloe Vera, Coconut, Olive, Soy, Argan Oil, Shea and Mango Butter which all provide tons of moisture to the hair. The (5 min or longer) treatment process works wonders by leaving the hair feeling super soft and allows detangling to be breeze.
I couldn't make a must have lists without including my Holy Grail Gel - EcoStyler Gel. This locally found gel gives the perfect finish to any sleek style, by giving just enough hold to the hair to allow it to lay down smoothly. It also works great for those wash'n'gos and it gives just the right amount of hold and definition to a twist-out or braid-out. As a bonus this gel also add shine to the hair and comes in different hold levels from soft to maximum hold ideal for these hot and humid months.
Last but certainly not least, my must have moisturizer for this summer is Entwine Couture's Indugently Luxe Exotique Butter-Crème Hydrator. This blend of Palm Fruit, Safflower, Pomegranate & Wheat Germ Oils + Illipe, Mango Seed, Shea Butters & Luxurious Conditioners is ideal for any of those natural hairstyles we love to create and it also helps to hydrate the hair, condition the hair and ultimately helps to promote hair growth.
