Summer's in full swing and you're likely spending as much time as you can outdoors. At the beach, in the pool, driving with the windows down. The upside of all that time in the sun can be sun kissed highlights and beachy waves you don't get year round. But all that sun, chlorine, salt water, high humidity, and extreme heat can also wreak havoc on your hair.
The constant battle to tame frizz in the summer can be exhausting. Summer brings with it extremely dry strands that are seriously parched from too much sun. All those UV rays and chlorine can even turn your once lustrous hair color into a brassy, orange tone. It might even go green if you're a blonde.
Before you give up on your summer hair and throw it up into yet another messy updo, keep scrolling. We rounded up 8 hair care products to keep your hair healthy and smooth this summer. These thirst quenching products will seriously moisturize your fried strands and help protect them from the harsh effects of UV rays and chlorine.
You probably wouldn't hit the beach without any sunscreen. Don't spend the day in the sun without protecting your hair either. Here are the 8 products you need for frizz free, healthy summer hair:
