Summer is here and things just look brighter! Everything about summer screams happiness, but the sun, sand, and ocean can wreak havoc on your fabulous tresses. Since your strands need a little more TLC this season, we found the latest and greatest products to keep your mane soft, sexy, and shining brightly.
1 – If the Kardashian manes swear by it and tout it as the best, count us in! Celebrity hair stylist Jen Atkin’s new line Ouai is making waves. Ouai Treatment Masque is the Cadillac of hair masques. This intensely healing treatment will soften and smooth your locks within minutes using Artichoke leaf extract. $32 TheOaui.com
2 – Between the sun, wind, and water, you need to infuse your hair with all the goodness you can get. The more moisture, the better, which is why we love R+Co’s Atlantis Shampoo and Conditioner. R+Co is completely formulated without parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, or petrolatum, and is vegetarian, cruelty-free, and gluten-free. $28, RandCo.com
3 – While we all love laying in the sun (with proper protection, of course), our hair does not. Sometimes your tresses need an extra strength dose of fortification. Rita Hazan Weekly Remedy Treatments will do just that. The two-step, at-home treatment delivers salon-quality hydration and repairs instantly, with innovative technology that transforms the hair follicle from the inside out to treat and protect. $42, RitaHazan.com
4 – While your skin is usually glowing in the summer, your hair can look a bit drab. Oribe Glaze for Beautiful Color takes care of that. This high-gloss top coat for hair is a shimmering, conditioning glaze that imparts intense shine, brightens color and highlights, and silkens strands for hair that is luminous from the inside out. Defend hair from oxidative stress, photo-aging, and the drying, damaging, and color-depleting effects of the elements. $58, Oribe.com
