Makeup Wars: Your Best Summer Hair Yet

Sent For Review Affiliate Links Purchased By Me 

Summer is tough on hair. You've got to take it easy, protect it and treat it like a baby. Here are my favorite products to make it through the tough days of summer and arrive in the fall like the gorgeous chica of polished perfection that I know you are.

Never brush hair when it's wet. Especially at the beach! If you must, be sure to use a brush like the Wet Brush or Knotty Girl from Coolway. It won't rip strands and your hair will love you for it.

If you are swimming or lounging outside, coat hair with an oil, like Leonor Greyl or Darshana. Oil will help protect the hair from sea salt and chlorine, while conditioning. Both of these oils are good for the hair and aren't formulated with more silicones than you can shake a water ice at.

Humidity getting the best of you? Try Oribe's Anti-Humidity Spray. It's not a hairspray, so your hair won't feel sticky in the sun, but it does somehow keep the frizzies at bay.

Insist on flatironing your hair all summer long? Do it the compassionate way with Coolway. Coolway uses a special chemical that allows your hair to get the flatironing straightness at a much lower temperature than without. Hair is much happier when it's not baked from the inside out. You'll need their flatiron to find your perfect temperature, but if you just try the spray, start around 200 degrees instead of 350.

Avoiding sea salt in your salt sprays? If you have a keratin treatment, you better be! Try Josie Maran's Bohemian Waves Argan Mist for the same kind of tousled look, but without the damage of traditional sprays.

Be kind to your hair! Take a break from all of the blowdrying and let your hair air dry, with just a bit of Davines Oi. Then use heated rollers like these, which don't get too hot and cause damage. They do smooth out the hair and give major body, just like a beautiful blowdry, without the time, heat and damage.
