Our Ultimate Guide to Beach Waves

Unfortunately, as we’re all well aware, summer’s just ended. It’s a complete bummer. We certainly miss it already, along with all the cute hairstyles and trends the season inspired this year! However, you don’t have to mourn the end of summer by shelving all those cute hairstyles you used to wear last season. Take beach waves, for instance. While beach waves may not quite match the season, they’ll never truly go out of style! To help you rock this adorable hairstyle all year ‘round, here’s a nifty guide on how to create it for yourself.

Take Advantage of Your Flat Iron

Your flat iron isn’t just for rendering your hair sleek and straight! It can also work miracles in terms of creating the perfect wave in your hair, especially if it’s naturally of the thicker, harder-to-manage variety. Before using your flat iron, be sure to add some protective hair serum to your locks to safeguard it against the heat, and brush through it to ensure your strands are as sleek and tangle-free as possible.

Afterwards, you can get started with sweeping the iron through your hair, pointing it toward the floor and curling each section around the flat iron before pulling down. This method is a great way of styling beach waves in a hurry, as it takes less than 10 minutes, even for long hair. With some gentle guidance, you’ll end up with gorgeous, sleek and shiny waves!

Twist It Up

This style utilizes your flat iron yet again, alongside a hair spray specially designed to maximize the waviness of your hair. The latter should be applied to your hair first in a light drizzle. Afterwards, you can twist sections of your hair before braiding them together for better hold. The next step involves your flat iron, which you’ll sweep over the twist from top to ends. Be sure to be gentle as you pass over your hair and don’t lose patience if you come across a snag! Heat is already hard enough on your hair, so you don’t want to increase the risk of breakage by forcing the iron through. Once your hair has cooled off sufficiently, you can undo the twist and enjoy your beautiful new waves!

If All Else Fails…

RemySoft hair extensionsIf you have short hair or simply don’t want to fuss with a lot of heat, you can always rely on hair extensions pre-styled into the perfect beach waves! We find this is a much easier alternative and far more flexible if you only want to rock this look for a day or so. Hair extensions require less maintenance than the hair naturally growing from your head, though there are still a few things you can and should do to keep them presentable. If you want to go the extension route, make sure to research and invest in the best shampoo and conditioner for extensions for maximum longevity!

We hope these tips will help you create your most beautiful beach waves yet! For other hair styling and care tips, feel free to get in touch with us at RemySoft. We care about helping you look your absolute best!

Three Great Hair Products to Pack for College

It’s time to start thinking about packing for college again! Whether you’re going back for another semester or entering college for the first time, there is a long list of essentials you have to think about. You’re going to want to change up your hairstyle frequently so packing the perfect hair products should be at the top of your list. You may be limited in space, depending on whether you live in a dorm or apartment, so pack wisely! Here are three of the best hair products you need to remember to pack for your college experience.

1. Conditioner

You will quickly realize you don’t have as much time during the semester as you do when you aren’t taking classes. That’s where a good leave in conditioner comes into the picture. It will moisturize your hair just enough to protect it without having to give it a lot of attention every day. Most of them are gentle enough to be used daily so you won’t have to worry about damaging your hair. Depending on your hairstyle, you may opt for other quality conditioners as well. This is one item you can’t afford to not pack!

2. Shampoo

Use a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner in college.

Sulfate free shampoo and conditioner is a must for college.

With the busy days and nights that come with college life, washing your hair can easily become an afterthought. Be sure to bring a good shampoo with you to keep your hair protected and always looking great. We recommend a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner, since it is packed with more vitamins, minerals and oils to give your hair the nutrients it needs when you don’t have time to care for it as much as you normally do. With a good quality shampoo, you may not need to wash it every night, or even every other night for that matter.

3. Protective Hair Serum

You may not have it on your packing list yet, but be sure to add a protective hair serum to your list of must-bring products. You’re going to be exposed to many environments in college, whether it’s heat, rain, cold, wind or any other conditions. A good protective hair serum is essential to ensure your hair can handle any weather without having to go to a salon to fix it.

Packing for college is a chore so contact us for advice on what hair care products to pack for your next adventure!

Five Ways Curly Girls and Guys Can Maintain Maximum Hair Health on Campus

Student life can be hectic at times. It’s easy to neglect a lot of things in your personal life when your week is dedicated to attending your college classes and studying. However, you can still maintain maximum hair health for your curly hair, no matter how busy your schedule is. With a little time management and using the resources you have available, you can continue to look good as you go about your busy day.

A great curly hairstyle can make you feel more confident as you get through the day. Check out these five ways anyone with curly hair can maintain maximum hair health in the middle of a busy school schedule.

1. Keep Your Hair Healthy

The key to having quality curly hair is to maintain its health and hydration. In order to keep your hair from becoming broken or damaged, most hair care professionals will recommend you use a protective hair serum occasionally. Don’t neglect your hair and give it what it needs to stay healthy.

2. Save Some Time for Your Hair

Since you get to pick your schedule, be sure you allow enough time to take care of your hair. Either wake up earlier in the morning or pick a time mid-morning to do something with it. The health of your curly hair may not seem important when you’re bombarded with homework and studying, but it’s worth the effort. Block off some time in your schedule now so you won’t have to choose between caring for your hair and doing something else later on.

3. Train Your Hair Early

Keep your curls looking great with protective hair serum.

Protective hair serum keeps your curls looking great.

If you have an idea of what hairstyle you want to go with this school year, now is the time to start training it. Depending on the hairstyle, you may need to invest in a quality hydrating shampoo. Giving your hair a few weeks to get trained will make the process much easier on a daily basis.

4. Don’t Forget to Wash

Never go more than a week without washing your hair! If you’re worried about abusing your shampoo and stripping your curls of valuable moisture, consider washing with conditioner, co-washing, instead. We also recommend using a leave in conditioner after each wash to help keep it healthy and stylish.

5. Be Fly and Confident

People find confidence in a lot of ways. It’s amazing what a perfect curly hairstyle will do to your confidence level. Spend a little time fixing it up and go dominate your day!

These are just some of the tips we have for people with curly hair. Be sure to contact us to learn more about our products and recommendations tailored to your specific hairstyle!

Rock These Easy Hairstyles By Poolside for Maximum Summer Fun!

RemySoft sun protection for hairSummer means several things for everyone: free time, fun, frolicking, trips to the pool or beach and picking out a brand new wardrobe to help you look cute while you’re having so much fun! If you’re going to step up your wardrobe, however, you’ll need an equally adorable hairstyle to match. The only problem is the devastation all the best parts of summer leave in their wake where your hair is concerned. What can be done to guard your hair against pool chemicals and the constant sunshine? We have a few hairstyle suggestions for those interested in sun protection for hair!


Bobs have always been an extremely popular look and show no signs of stopping. 2016’s newest variant introduces sleek waves cut into soft layers. The best part is you can maintain this hairstyle fairly easily! All you need is to get your hair cut and layered appropriately, then add in the wavy aspect yourself with the help of a curling iron or another styling tool of choice. Simply curl the middle section of your strands. You don’t want too much curl, after all! All that’s left is to comb your fingers through to separate the curls and give it a stylishly messy look.


Use our RemySoft protective hair serum to keep your hair safe and stylish this summer!This style is perfect for those who want to keep their hair long and away from their face and neck on those days when it’s unbearably hot. To start with, you’ll have to have freshly washed your hair, spritzed with your favorite protective hair serum. Afterward, you can start tying your hair up high, starting with a ponytail before bundling it up into a stylish topknot! You’re guaranteed to remain comfortable and look unbelievably cute at the same time.


Ponytails are the classic style for every woman on the go, as well as every woman navigating through the summer months, while keeping their hair intact. While you shouldn’t wear your hair in super tight ponies every day, it’s a great way to style your hair comfortably every once in a while. This is another look that works best with freshly washed and dried hair. We recommend doing so with sulfate free shampoo and conditioner to help your ponytail retain that sleek and healthy sheen. Simply tie your hair up as normal and you’re done. Just be sure to stay away from metal hair ties!

Loose Waves

There’s no way to look bad with loose hair, especially if a bit of wave and body are involved! While this look is easiest for girls with natural curls and waves, those with straight hair can pull this style off too. Just take your wet hair and style it into a bun overnight. When you’re ready, you can let your hair down and enjoy your brand new, gorgeous waves.

Top Five Quick Hairstyles for Travelers

RemySoft quality hair careYou always want to look cute, even when you’re on the road. We completely understand! After all, you didn’t pack the best parts of your wardrobe for nothing. However, coordinating a great look while ducking in and out of airports and planes tends not to mesh well. Combine this with jetlag and exhaustion and maintaining your quality hair care routine easily becomes the last thing on your mind. What can you do? We have a few tips or, more accurately, easy hairstyle suggestions to keep your hair at its best while also making the idea of fussing with it the least of your cares while you’re seeing the world!

Fishtail Braids

RemySoft leave in conditionerThe classic fishtail braid is not only easy to style your hair into but is extremely cute! Whether you’ve freshly washed your hair and worked in a bit of leave in conditioner or are throwing it up as-is, you’re sure to look great as you board your next flight or stop at the nearest airport Starbucks kiosk for a little pick-me-up. You can simply comb through your hair with your fingers while it’s wet or dry, then twine it into a fishtail braid on the side of your head and secure it with a band. After that, you’re ready to go!


Buns have to be the ultimate low-effort hairstyle, but they work wonders with any outfit! Best of all, styling your hair this way takes mere minutes and keeps it safely secured while you’re out and about. You won’t have to worry about it tumbling down into your eyes and get all the benefits of looking quite fashionable without investing too much of your time.


Chignons are the siblings of the top-heavy bun and provide a more elegant touch to your travel style. While chignons take a little more effort, they hold up well no matter how far you’re traveling. Just be sure to bring plenty of hair pins to keep it in place.

Side Ponytails

If chignons are the siblings of buns, side ponytails are the cousins of fishtail braids. They have the same orientation, but a side ponytail isn’t bound up the way fishtail braids are—literally! This hairstyle combines easily with a hat to help you maintain some sun protection for hair if you’re anticipating going anywhere with lots of sunshine. Simply push all your hair to one side of your head and over your shoulder, then secure it with a good hair tie. Now you’re ready for adventure!


This hairstyle is a great solution for those with long hair who aren’t interested in fussing with it whatsoever in between flights. Again, this will require a bit of time and some pinning and pulling, but you’ll be able to glide through customs with ease, grace and the state of your hair being the farthest from your mind!

To learn how else you can maintain quality hair care both on and off the road, contact us at RemySoft Solutions! We’re here to help you look your most chic no matter the occasion.

The Top Three Summer Hair Problems (and How to Resolve Them!)


While summer is perhaps one of the most enjoyable seasons for many, thanks to its ample supply of free time and opportunities for outings with friends, it isn’t so good for your hair. The summer sun inflicts a lot of damage on your hair and can easily render it a barely manageable mess. If you’ve dealt with this unfortunate downside of the summer, we are here to the rescue! Here are a few handy tips for sun protection for hair, as well as helpful information and why and how your hair can go wrong.

For Frizziness…

Nearly everyone has dealt with this beast of a hair problem at some point, when a frayed, cloud-like mass takes over the space where your lovely hair used to be. People who treat their hair frequently with chemical products tend to experience this problem the most. In fact, the chemicals are the problem. Perms, dyes and other similar hair styling tools we rely upon on a frequent basis can harm our hair by stripping it of the oils and moisture it needs to thrive. As a result, your hair becomes brittle and dehydrated to the point it will take in moisture wherever it can get. Summer humidity tends to be the perfect source.

To remedy this problem, you want to first invest in sulfate free shampoo and conditioner, which will help restore and lock in moisture within your hair. You may also want to consider relying on anti-frizz products until the next time you wash your hair.

For Dull Hair…

This problem is quite the opposite of what we discussed above. Rather than your hair puffing out, you may experience it weighing down until it becomes a lackluster straggle hanging floppily from your scalp. What’s the deal? Again, it’s the summer humidity! The excess water hanging in the air will easily latch onto your hair and make it far heavier than it should be.

To fix this, you want to try using a leave in conditioner and related products to boost the amount of proteins in your hair, which will make it more resistant to weighty moisture. In the meantime, you can use sprays that fight off moisture to help your hair thrive.

For Chlorine-Damaged Hair…

This problem is especially relevant for pool lovers. The sunlight and chlorine from the pool (and/or simply using far too much product) can combine to create less than desirable effects upon your hair, eliminating the sheen. Either way, your hair suffers from one of two problems: too much residue or too much dryness.

Again, a good sulfate free shampoo and conditioner should do the trick by cleaning your hair of any residue and restoring necessary moisture. You can also flat iron your hair to tide you over until your next wash day.

Picking the Best Bridal Hairstyle: What Should I Consider?

RemySoft quality hair careThis may sound vain, but you cannot have a truly great bridal ensemble without the perfect hairstyle. Think of your hair as the pièce de résistance of your wedding attire, the cherry on top of the world’s most artful sundae. You can’t just pick a hairstyle haphazardly for this special occasion! You want something that meshes well with your dress and helps you feel even more beautiful than you already are. Here are a few questions you should ask yourself before heading off to see your wedding stylist.

Don’t Forget Your Hair Accessories

Don't forget to use some sun protection for hair on your big day!When you went dress shopping, you likely already decided on which accessory you wanted to go with it. For many people, this would be either a veil or a tiara, though plenty of other options exist and complement a well-made and becoming dress just as beautifully. You will have to consider the accessory you want to wear as part of your bridal ensemble while you’re deciding on a hairstyle because it will have to incorporate this accessory in some way.

Don’t Be Afraid to Experiment!

You definitely want to research all types of styles before you decide which one is right for you. The best time to do this would be several weeks before your actual wedding date for the sake of allowing yourself ample time to really think about this. Do a bit of googling. Sift through bridal style blogs. Hop onto Pinterest and flip through all the bridal images, saving the ones you really like. If you’d like, you can even consult your hairstylist with a few references you’re considering in tow. They can help you decide which hairstyle would be the most fitting.

Your Natural Hair Texture Matters

Help your hair look great on your wedding day with our hair products for Remy hair!Think about the natural attributes of your hair, as well as what you personally like to wear or what styles you have never tried before. You may surprise yourself by picking something you would have never worn otherwise but still looks splendid on you! Be sure to take other elements into account alongside your hair texture, including the venue and theme of your wedding. If you’re going for a traditional wedding, a classic hairstyle, such as an updo, would probably be more fitting than loose hair with a unique adornment. Be sure to stick to your quality hair care regimen for maximum results too!

Match Your Hairstyle to Your Dress.

This last point goes back to what we said in the paragraph before this: think about the theme of your wedding and what style of dress you’ve chosen. You want to pick a hairstyle that matches this, if only for the sake of consistency.

No matter what hairstyle you choose, there are many ways to create a stunning bridal look for yourself with the help of hair products for remy hair. This will prove especially useful for those planning outdoor weddings because sun protection for hair will matter just as much as the right style.

A Traveler’s Guide to Great Hair Care

RemySoft quality hair careWhen it comes to hitting the road, you’ll run into many emotions, ranging from excitement over all the sights you’ll see to worry and scrambling to get all of your ducks in a row before you take off. There will undoubtedly be all sorts of things to take care of. You may need someone to watch your house or care for your pets while you’re gone. Transportation may be an issue. Another important but often neglected aspect of vacationing is your quality hair care routine! If you’re going to be gone for an extensive amount of time this summer and have invested ample time in your hair health, you’ll want to keep reading this guide. We have a few tips to help your hair stay at its absolute best!

Ditch the Heat!

This saying goes not only for staying cool during those hot summer travels, but for drying your hair while you’re away from home. Rather than toting your hair dryer along, after a wash you can simply let your hair dry the old-fashioned way—with air! While you probably know this from experience, this suggestion will be much trickier for those with thick hair. In this case, you may want to plan a relaxing day at the hotel while letting your locks shake off the moisture. However, taking this step will be much easier on your hair throughout your trip. You can even compromise by going 50/50 between blow drying and air drying! Just be sure to remember your leave in conditioner!

Make a Pre-Vacation Appointment

If you’re planning on staying away for a considerable amount of time, it will do you a world of good to take a trip to your favorite salon and get a professional wash and treatment, if you’re so inclined, done. Compared to any home care you might attempt, the work of a professional will ultimately have much lengthier endurance, unless you’re a professional yourself! Taking care of your hair before you head off will prove to be much more convenient in the long run and keep you looking great for an unbelievably long amount of time, as long as you don’t go anywhere near the ocean, of course!

Be Gentle with Your Hair

Invest in sun protection for hair for those big summer trips!We know you’ve heard this a million times, but you absolutely have to be careful with wet hair, whether it’s from a dip in the resort pool or after a fresh wash. Wet hair is the daintiest type of hair and requires a different kind of care than it would while dry. Treat your hair gently with the help of a wide comb and absolutely no elastics or brushing. Finally, after you’ve invested all that time in washing your hair, you want the hydration and nutrients from your products to stick around. Take a hat and some protective spray along for some ample sun protection for hair if you’re planning on basking in the sun for a day!

We hope these tips will help you keep up with your quality hair care, even while on vacation! Contact us to learn more about how to keep your hair healthy and vibrant.

Five Best Ways to Blend Your Remy Extensions With Your Natural Hair

Five Best Ways to Blend Your Remy Extensions With Your Natural Hair

Versatile styles for RemySoft hair extensionsHair extensions can be a tricky thing. We know how they should work in theory, but getting them to look exactly the way we want is easier said than done, especially without professional help. Fortunately, there are ways to achieve great looks with your extensions all on your own. It just takes a bit of practice and knowledge of how to blend your extensions in properly with your hair. We have a few style tips to help you get started!

Side Braids

The classic side braid is perfect for almost any occasion! To wear this style, all you have to do is layer your extensions underneath your natural hair, at the crown. You can then weave both your remy extensions and hair into a proper braid. Be sure to make it as neat as possible! You can leave your bangs be or sweep them back for a more formal look.

Try our shiny hair extensionsLoose Waves

This style for shiny hair extensions is yet another classic, which is best saved for after you’ve freshly washed and blow dried your hair. Simply apply your extensions and work on curling your hair to make it all mesh together. For a bit of extra girlishness, you can add in an accessory. This style is quite flexible and suits any kind of outing.

Curled Updo

If you’re looking for a flirty, semi-formal style, this is one of the best options to keep in your arsenal! There are two steps to this particular style. First, you need to curl your hair prior to adding in your extensions. Be sure to brush out your curls before you snap your extensions in! This will help them look neater and more separated. Layer your extensions just so and then work on blending them in. You’ll want to use wavy extensions for the fullest effect.

After this is done, you can then bundle your hair into a slightly tousled side bun, using a band to hold it all in place. This hairstyle also goes great with accessories so make sure you pick out something that’s both pretty and able to complement your ‘do well!

Side Ponytail

This style is a little more intricate, just like the side bun we mentioned above. Take a round brush to your hair to enhance your roots and raise the hair at the crown of your head. Bundle all of your hair so it makes a neat bun, with some strands hanging loose. In order to blend them with your curled extensions, which will be applied on top of the bun, curl the strands of hair you leave loose from the bun.

Crown Braid

Last, but not least, comes this ever popular hairstyle! Simply gather all your hair and pin it back with the help of a banana clip. Don’t do this too neatly, however, because leaving a few strands unattended creates the chic tousled look we’re going for! You can then put in a headband shaped like a crown braid to complete the look.

We hope this style guide will give you some great ideas to try out this summer! At RemySoft, we make it our priority to offer our clients quality advice and hair products for remy hair. To learn how we can help you, contact us!

Bronde: 2016’s Newest Hair Color

This may not be your first time hearing about “bronde” hair, the hair coloring trend making waves in 2016. Believe it or not, the latest sun-kissed look actually sprouted back in 2015 and has been most famously sported by actress Blake Lively. If you haven’t seen the picture of her wearing this hair color and have yet to have heard of “bronde” hair, you’ve come to the right place! We can fill you in on exactly what bronde hair is, how stylists create the look and how you can maintain it in the long run!

What Is Bronde Hair Anyway?

Bronde hair seems to be closely related to ombre, which took the last couple of years by storm, and balayage, which is rising in popularity alongside bronde. If you have naturally dark hair but aren’t sure whether blonde hair is for you, stylists commonly recommend adding blonde highlights into your hair and seeing how it looks. This is essentially what bronde is. Think of it as dark roots and lighter tints highlighting toward the tips of the hair, with both colors subtly weaving together. Many like it not just because of its noncommittal nature, but because it adds extra body to the hair in an attractive and organic-looking way.

How Is Bronde Hair Created?

Keep your hair healthy with sulfate free shampoo and conditioner.

Sulfate free shampoo and conditioner is great for all types of hair.

When you go to a salon, be sure to be specific with your stylist. Bronde hair is also known as “tortoiseshell,” and only refers to brunette hair highlighted with an assortment of lighter tints strewn throughout. Stylists can do this help you achieve this look through any number of ways, but the most common involve foil or the aforementioned balayage technique.

How Can I Take Care of My Bronde Hair?

If you’re the proud wearer of the bronde look, there are several things you can do to keep your color strong and vibrant. One of the first is to invest in sulfate free shampoo and conditioner. It’s easy to cause the coloring of your hair to fade due to excessive washing, as well as the wrong shampoo. Changing your washing technique is a fantastic method of providing sun protection for hair. When you’re looking for a shampoo, be sure to check whether it preserves hair coloring. You can also invest in a protective hair serum. This will serve to not only protect the color, but the overall health of your hair.

We hope you come away from this article with a little more knowledge and interest in bronde coloring and the amazing things it can do for your hair! At RemySoft Solutions, we specialize in formulating hair care tips and products to help your hair flourish. For more information on who we are and what we do, contact us. You deserve to have healthy, voluminous, great-looking hair, and we can help.
