If there鈥檚 one thing we can count on every summer, it鈥檚 this:聽Whether you鈥檙e聽dancing in a field聽wearing a flower crown or cozying up to a book on the beach,聽you鈥檙e gonna be outside.聽It鈥檚 a given that聽you鈥檒l be keeping an eagle eye on your skin (you applied your homemade聽sunscreen, right?), but what about your hair? Your strands get聽fried聽from all that UV exposure too, guaranteeing聽that,聽come labor day, you鈥檝e got more frizz, color fading, dryness and breakage than you know what to do with.

Scroll down for these summer hair savers to start using now.


1. Terax Original Crema Moisturizing Daily Conditioner ($24): This cult classic wins the trifecta for all hair types, keeping frizz, tangles and breakage from taking over.

Shake up this bi-phase formula and聽spritz it in; the Tahitian coconut and bamboo extract strengthen and condition stressed-out tresses.
