The heat is rising and the hair is frizzing! Summer brings a season of fun, but also a slew of environmental stressors that can cause serious damage to your tresses. You need to guard your strands from the sun’s rays, chlorine, salt water, and other trouble makers of the season. Avoid hot-weather hair catastrophes with these tried-and-true products that will keep your locks looking lustrous.

ARROJO Protective Thickening Lotion
I’m a huge fan of just about everything in celeb stylist Nick Arrojo’s product line. The ARROJO Protective Thickening Lotion is perfect for summertime, but will also work to protect hair from regular heat styling during any season. Spray it into damp hair before styling and it will protect the hair from harmful UV rays and humidity. With light hold, it is a foundation product that improves elasticity, prevents breakage, and instantly thickens hair strands.

Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Beach Spray
Unlike some similar sea salt sprays that can be harmful, this beach spray is infused with nourishing ingredients like argan oil. While it works to style and create that sexy undone beachy texture, it’s also protecting and healing your damaged hair in the process. I like to spray it on dry hair and use it to create the perfect messy bun texture too!

AG Hair Cosmetics Frizzproof Anti-Humidity Spray
This spray is like an anti-frizz veil that you can use to finish any style – from basic beach waves to intricate updos. It creates a weightless, invisible shield that will seriously boost shine while providing light hold and fighting the frizz.

Bumble and Bumble Surf Shampoo and Conditioner
To amplify that summery look, cleanse your hair with the clean-rinsing Surf Foam Wash Shampoo and Crème Rinse Conditioner. This product pair works together to create buoyant body and soft, sea-breezy texture.

Alterna Bamboo Beach Sun Recovery Spray
If you get caught in a situation where you can’t use all of the great protective products I mentioned, this stuff will save your sun-damaged strands. Soothe parched locks by spraying in this leave-in conditioner that will instantly revitalize and nourish.
