These Are the 10 Products You Need to Keep Your Hair Healthy All Summer Long

Summertime isn’t so sweet when it comes to your hair.

By Jessie Sardina

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times… Summertime, that is. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about longer days, bronzed skin and any excuse to rock linen. On the flip side, however, (right next to sweaty subway rides, inopportune tan lines and bug bites) is the mess that is my hair in the summer. As soon as the mercury spikes, my otherwise low-maintenance locks turn into a season-long nightmare. A day in the sun and heat leaves my strands dull and dry while any amount of humidity zaps my hair into a frazzled, fluffy mess. And while a blowdryer or flat iron might do the trick, no amount of coaxing can bring me to resurrect my hot tools in the summer months.

Suffering from similar summertime hair woes? Check out these 10 products—from heat-activated conditioning masks to sun-protecting styling mists—to transform weather-worn locks into healthy hair you can rock all summer long.
