Today I am excited to share the Garnier Whole Blends Smoothing Hair Care with Coconut Oil and Cocoa Butter Extracts products with you, a DIY for a Summer Lace Headband and an easy Summer Updo using this fun Headband!

The humidity of summer will be here soon and I plan to use Garnier Whole Blends Hair Care to help my hair look its best during the summer months! These products provide smoothing care for frizz-prone hair. They also include a rich formula with the essence of coconut oil and cocoa butter.

Garnier Whole Blends Hair Care comes in a variety of treatments that are specific for your hair care needs:
  • Repairing - Honey Treasures
  • Hydrating - Coconut Water and Vanilla Milk
  • Smoothing - Coconut Oil and Cocoa Butter
  • Refreshing - Green Apple and Green Tea
  • Nourishing - Avocado Oil and Shea Butter
  • Color Care - Argan Oil and Cranberry Extracts
These products smell great on your hair, the coconut scent really makes me think of summer and laying on the beach! The coconut oil also works great at smoothing back any little frizzies or fly aways that pop up.

Are you ready to learn how to make your own Summer Lace Headband?

This headband is so easy to make, it takes 5 minutes top and you only need a few items that you probably already have around the house.

First, I went to Walmart and headed to the Shampoo department to find the Garnier Whole Blends Hair Care products.

For the headband, you'll only need 2 thin (.25") ribbons, elastic hair ties, a needle and thread and scissors.

(Left) Lay two of the elastic hair ties on top of each other so that they overlap. (Right) Pull the two hair ties together so that they form a knot.

Craft5 Craft6
(Left) Add another hair tie, so that you have three knotted together. (Right) Cut your ribbon to 14", or measure your favorite headband to see how long you need to make the ribbon.

(Left) Sew the ends of the two ribbons together (if you're only using one ribbon, you can skip this step). (Right) Sew the ribbons to the hair tie on each side.

And, ta-da! You have your very first headband!

Summer Updo with Lace Headband

Now I am going to share an easy summer updo that you can do with this beautiful lace headband that you just made! First, you'll want to shampoo and condition your hair with Whole Blends Smoothing Hair Care. I also use the Leave-In Conditioner on my hair once a week (in addition to using the regular conditioner!). Then, after I dry my hair, I use the Smoothing Oil on it and it smooths away any frizz or flyaways! I also want to mention that these products smell great, the coconut scent makes me think of the summer!

Once your hair is styled, place the headband on top of your head.

Take a small section of hair on each side of your face and tuck it under the headband.

Take all of the hair on the back of your hair and tuck it into the back part of the headband.

It shouldn't be hard to tuck in all of your hair into the back of the headband, but when you are done it will look like the photo above.

Now you have an elegant up do in only a few minutes!

I have naturally curly hair and it gets a little wild and poofy in the summer, so this easy up-do will be great for picnics, outdoor concerts and festivals! I hope you enjoy it, too!

I am excited to use Whole Blends Smoothing Hair Care this summer on my hair! It'll be nice to not have to worry about my hair once the humidity hits the Midwest! What tips do you have for keeping your hair under control for the summer?
