Heat Protection

First and foremost, 3-in-1 Mist offers heat protection. Even if you’re not heat styling your hair every day, it’s super important to protect it. It’s also important to take into account that sun exposure is heat exposure. So if you’re spending a long day lounging at the beach, protecting against heat is vital! This will also help keep hair from drying out or getting frizzy after prolonged sun exposure.

UV Ray Protection

Speaking of sun exposure, 3-in-1 Mist also protects against UV rays. Why does this matter? Well UV rays can seriously compromise your hair color and even dry it out. If you want your color to stay vibrant and your hair to stay hydrated, prep with 3-in-1 Mist before setting foot outside this summer.

Detangling

If you’re spending your summer swimming a lot or generally just staying active, your hair is going to get tangled. It just so happens that 3-in-1 Mist is a super quick and easy-to-use detangler. So no matter how much time you spend on a windy beach, you can rest assured it won’t take long to detangle your tresses afterwards.

Shine

As if all those properties and benefits weren’t enough, 3-in-1 Mist also offers a natural shine to the hair. It’s perfect for hair that’s dull or dry because it adds much-needed shine and moisture, but not so much that it weighs down the hair. Plus it smells heavenly. So it’s a win-win-win all the way around!

If you tend to spend a lot of time outdoors in the summer, then this list is for you! Don’t neglect your hair care regimen just because you’re on vacation. Now it’s more important than ever to protect your hair against harsh chemicals and sun exposure. With these essential summer hair care tips, you’ll be ready to take whatever this season throws you!

Protect Against UV Rays

Prolonged exposure to UV rays can cause severe damage. It dries hair out, makes it frizzy, and can even fade the color. The solution to this problem is protecting your hair with the Ostia Collection 3-in-1 Mist. Not only does this one-of-a-king product protect against UV rays, it also protects against heat styling and has detangling properties. It’s an absolute must for your summer hair care routine.

Try to Go Longer Between Washes

Admittedly, washing hair less frequently is doubly difficult in the summertime, but hear us out! You can still rinse out the sweat and grease with just water. Plus using our talc-free Ostia Collection Dry Shampoo can help extend your style even longer. The reasoning behind washing hair less frequently is that it can actually be very drying, which consequently causes the scalp to over produce oil. It becomes an endless cycle of oiliness where the more you wash it, the oilier it gets!

Use Conditioner While Swimming

If you swim a lot, it’s very important to protect your hair. From the extreme drying properties of chlorine to the possibility of blonde hair turning green, you’re going to want some protection. We recommend wetting the hair and applying a generous amount of conditioner before swimming. Leave the conditioner in–don’t rinse it out before you swim. This will help protect hair from many kinds of potential damage.

Deep Condition Semi-Frequently

Another vital summer hair care tip is making sure to deep condition your hair. We recommend doing it every 1-2 weeks. The best product for this is our Hydrate Masque. It’s comprised of a unique formula that restores and maintains the health, moisture and shine of hair. Apply to wet hair from the mid shaft to ends and leave in 5+ minutes for best results.

These essential summer hair care tips are just that–essential. Don’t destroy your hair this summer, instead nourish your mane and enjoy gorgeous healthy hair, year-round!


The first step toward having a healthy scalp is having a clean one. Whether your complaint is a dry scalp or an oily one, everything comes back to build up and what ingredients are in your hair products. All the deep conditioning treatments and color specific shampoos in the world won’t help you with these problems. That’s where Clarify Shampoo comes in.

Most shampoos are filled with parabens, sulfates, and other damaging ingredients that dry out the hair and scalp and can even compromise the hair’s color. The Ostia Collection Clarify Shampoo however has none of these ingredients and it is specially formulated to remove excess oil as well as built up residue from styling products.

If you wear or have worn tape or fusion extensions, you may be familiar with clarifying shampoo, since it’s used to prepare the hair for an extensions application. But what you may not have known is that it has a lot more benefits than that!

Clarifying shampoo helps keep your scalp healthy. As styles change and new styling products are created to target different specific complaints, the product buildup in hair gets worse and worse. You may find it nearly impossible to get glossy, healthy looking hair. Clarify Shampoo can change that, by knocking out buildup, excess oil while retaining much-needed moisture.

Using a clarifying shampoo like this one is absolutely essential to maintaining a healthy, hydrated scalp. We recommend using it every 1-2 weeks and alternating with your favorite shampoo in between.


When hair needs volume, the last hair care product people typically reach for is conditioner. But it’s time to reconsider that! Conditioner can do a lot for your hair’s health and body, but often gets under-utilized when it comes to adding volume. Here’s why you should try Volume Conditioner.

As we slowly slide into spring, it’s important to remember to nourish your hair. The winter months can make hair dry, dull, and limp. There’s no humidity or moisture in the air to add some natural hydration, so you have to add it yourself!

The key to using Volume Conditioner is in applying it correctly. Only apply at the mid shaft to ends of the hair. If you apply it higher, you risk trapping oils on the scalp, ultimately weighing down the hair and making it look stringy. Be careful not to use too much conditioner. All Ostia Collection products are highly concentrated, so a little bit goes a long way. It’s also just generally a bad idea to go heavy on the conditioner when you’re trying to achieve more volume.

Additionally, it is completely fine to alternate the Volume Conditioner with a different one, depending on what style you’re going for that day. You absolutely do not have to use Volume Conditioner every time you wash in order to reap its many. benefits.

If you need a little extra nourishment, alternate with Restore Conditioner. For ultra hydration, alternate with our Intense Conditioner. And for blondes who want to knock out brassiness, alternate with the Blonde Conditioner.

However you choose to implement Volume Conditioner into your hair care routine, you won’t regret it! It’s an excellent way to amplify fullness while offering much-needed hydration to natural hair and hair extensions.
