5 summer hair tricks you gotta try

 
 
Wrangle that mane! Here’s how to make your hair look totally amazing (and frizz free!) for the entire season.


Condition at the beach

It sounds kinda weird, but slather on some conditioner to your damp strands and twist them into a braid of bun. You’ll protect your tresses from drying out in the water or under the sun.

Rock a poof
No, not like Snooki. We’re talkin’ about bold ‘n’ bright hair accessories. Swap your standard elastics for crazy colorful ones. It’s an easy way to light up your locks, without putting in any effort.

Keep your comb handy

Seems obvious, until you climb outta the pool with a tangled mop and no way to get rid of it. Pack your wide-tooth in your beach bag or pool tote and use it when your hair is still damp. This particular one was baked with frizz-fighting olive oil, to help keep crazy curls under control.

Remember: Braids are your BFF

Keep your hair off your neck by spritzing on some leave-in conditioner into damp hair in the a.m. Then, braid you hair however you like. At night, undo the braids to reveal pretty waves. Sooo easy.
