How To Fix Dry, Damaged Summer Hair

Struggling with post-summer dry hair? Here’s how to fix it.

We love summer, but boy, does it play havoc on our hair. From sun exposure to humidity, chorine, and saltwater, the elements all conspire to leave our hair dry, brittle, frizzy, damaged, lackluster… the list goes on. But fear not! There are a number of beauty products – rescue remedies, if you will – that can solve your problem. Whether your concern is flat, flyaway hair without volume, or thick piles of damaged and unruly hair, we’ve got you covered.

To ensure super-hydrated hair, start with a hair mask. Unlike regular conditioner, which only hydrates the top layer of hair, a mask penetrates deeper. Hair oil, on the other hand, is a more versatile product that can be used on wet or dry hair and is ideal for helping temporarily disguise split ends. For extra moisture, apply to your dry hair and leave in for a while before shampooing. Alternatively, apply hair oil to towel-tried hair before styling for extra protection from heat damage. For fresh-from-the-salon hair, styling products can also make a world of difference. They help protect hair from heat damage and can add shine, bounce or frizz-control.

If your locks have been stripped of its natural oils, leaving you with parched locks, these nine products will help give new life to your hair.

FIX 1: Hair masks

Quick and easy to use, a mask will sort your hair in the time it takes to shower. Choose a deeply nourishing mask and gently comb it through your hair post-shampoo. Leave in for a few miutes, rinse off, and then apply conditioner.
