summer-proof your hair

Keep strands shiny and healthy this summer by following some of these tips:

1. Protect Natural Texture
If you're straight, stay that way. Curly and wavy hair can get a boost with a curl-defining ream like Fekkai Luscious Curls Cream to maintain shape and control frizz ($19.50 and sold at Sephora, Neiman Marcus or Fredric Fekkai salons).

2. Take Preventitive Measures
Keep wind, salt and chlorine damage to a minimum by spraying hair with a daily leave-in conditioner before going out to play. And when swimming in the pool or ocean, be sure to shower off afterwards and splash your hair with fresh water to get out the chlorine/sea water.

3. Get Defensive
Protect hair from environmental factors on the beach and off with a daily sun-shield like Kerastase Paris Creme UV Defense Active Protection Index 2 ($34 at If your paying big bucks for that hair color, make sure you protect it from fading or bleaching.
