We love when the summer rolls around, but our hair doesn’t love the heat and humidity. Whether your hair turns into a greasy disaster or lifeless, dried out locks are your concern, these are the products you need for better hair all summer long.
Glossy, beachy waves are pretty much everyone’s hair goal during the summer. We all want hair that looks effortless and shiny while we hit the beach, but getting Blake Lively-level hair can be tough. To help you out, we’ve rounded up our favorite products for styling and protecting your hair during the summer.
If your hair tends to go flat and greasy once the heat kicks in, a volumizing product like Joico Hair Shake Finishing Texturizer Spray is an everyday must. The liquid-to-powder spray soaks up oil while adding thickness to thin, fine strands. With the added texture to your hair, you can easily get undone beachy waves using the Sarah Potempa Beachwaver S1.
Our other major hair complaint for summer is the dry, split ends we start to notice. “The best thing you can do to keep your hair healthy during the summer sun beatings is to moisturize,” says Sally Hershberger Stylist Tanya Quintero. Tanya recommends using a leave-in conditioner like Alterna Bamboo Beach Summer Sun Recovery Spray before going outdoors, and using a conditioning mask like Giovanni 2 Chic Ultra-Repair Intensive Mask once a week. “Always rinse hair after swimming in the ocean or a pool before hair dries as the chemicals and sea salt are what dry out the hair,” Tanya adds.
Summer Hair Products — Color Protection
You know how important it is to protect your skin during the summer (or at least you should), but what about your hair? Sun exposure can fade color treated hair meaning you’ll be visiting the salon a lot sooner than you expected. To help prevent the sun from stripping your hair color, use Proganix Anti-Fade Weightless Argan Oil + UV Protection. Mist this combination of hair shielding argan oil, antioxidants and UVA/UVB filters when your hair is damp or just styled to keep your color looking fresh.
What’s your biggest hair concern for summer? Will you be adding any of these products into your beauty arsenal?
