Hey, you waited this long for summer to arrive, so you want to do it right. That means, along with having lots of pool parties and beach outings to attend (and maybe having a fabulous vacation or two planned), you also want to make sure your hair is in stellar condition. Even though the blazing sun feels so incredibly invigorating (but seriously, slather on that SPF, OK?), the scorching UV rays and stifling humidity aren’t always conducive to an immaculate coif. So like you change out your wardrobe from winter to summer, you need to tweak your haircare regimen from season to season, too. But don’t fret, we have a quick and easy primer (har har, get it?) on how to keep your hair looking summer-perfect—no matter what activity you’re enjoying or how high the heat and humidity levels spike.
Click through above to check out nine crucial tips on how to style your hair during this (hopefully) long, hot summer, plus find what you’ll need to recreate every single look with products from Dove, Nexxus and TRESemmé.
