Although most people take extra measures to protect and nurture their complexion during the summer, that extra attention is often neglected when it comes to haircare. Hair has more damaging elements to contend with during the hot weather season than the rest of the year due to a lethal combination of chlorine, perspiration, pollution, hot styling tools and, of course, excessive sun exposure. And the last thing anyone wants is to transition into the dry autumn weather with brittle, damaged hair. With summer in full-swing, the following products will tame, condition and beautify your locks from the intense heat on throughout the rest of the year.
