Damage Control For Flat, Frizzy, or Fried Summer Hair

Who doesn’t love summer? But the combination of heat + sweat + humidity can cause some serious damage to your locks. Whether your hair is flat, frizzy or fried, we have the beauty fixes you need to do some serious damage control on your hair.

If Your Hair Is Fried

Has salt water from the ocean and chlorine from the pool left you with dry, brittle hair? To restore shine and lustrous texture back to your hair:

If Your Hair Is Flat

Fine or straight hair can become limp in the summer as exposure to humidity can weigh hair down. To add some va-va-voom to your roots:

  • Avoid using deep conditioner on your roots if you are have thin hair. Instead, try only conditioning the ends of your hair. It’ll hydrate your locks without weighing down the roots.
  • This may seem counterintuitive, but ease off the heavy styling products! Products such as mouse or hairspray can buildup at the roots and, in humid weather, flatten your hair even more.
  • Blow dry your hair upside down. You may get a head rush with this simple trick, but the added volume will be worth it.

If Your Hair Is Frizzy

Hair all over the place this summer? Fight frizz by:

  • Rub a tiny bit conditioner into your hands and work it through your strands. This will help smooth the hair while slightly weighing down the top layer to prevent frizz.
  • Snip those ends! Layers, which add volume, can lead to frizz and puffiness in the summer. Ask your hairstylist for a blunter cut to help hold down the ends.
