When your hair is exposed to extra stressors from summer fun and sun, it's smart to minimize damage with products and processes that protect. Stock your styling drawer with these must-have summer protection products:
After shampooing, evenly spray a heat protection product onto damp hair. Apply from root to tip and comb through before heat styling.
For wash-n-go girls, a leave-in conditioner will combat dryness all day.
Always finish hair with UV protection spray to reflect harmful sun rays.
Fight frizz caused by humidity with a lightweight silicone serum. Apply to damp hair before styling to manage frizz while enhancing shine.
BONUS! STYLIST SECRETS There are even household products that can help you beat the heat.
COLD WATER: Rinse your hair with cool/cold water to tightly seal the cuticle and increase smoothness.
BABY POWDER: Sprinkle your scalp with a touch of baby powder to help absorb perspiration or humidity before frizz settles in.
