Hot weather can make
you extra thirsty during
the summer—and it can
have a similar effect on your hair. But parched tresses aren’t the only roadblock to maintaining healthy, manageable locks when the weather warms: Soaring humidity can make each day a battle against frizz; salt water and chlorinated pools can wreak havoc on sporty manes; and harsh sunlight can fade your expensive hair color into a dull memory. Don’t let that spoil your summer fun, however. These tips from our experts—and products containing fruit and nut extracts and oils that smell as divine as they work to keep hair healthy—will keep your hair in optimal condition all season long.
“Macadamia, avocado, kukui, argan and coconut oils are amazing,” says Linda Kammins, organic hair-care expert and owner of Linda Kammins Aromatherapy Salon in Los Angeles. “These natural oils restore elasticity and shine to the hair.”
Women have used these fruit and plant oils for centuries to keep hair (and skin) hydrated and resilient, and their current popularity in the beauty biz means it’s easy to find fantastic products that harness their power. Here, top stylists show you how these reparative oils can pamper and protect your crowning glory.
