Toes in the water, nose in a book, head in the clouds — the summer months are paradise found for every part of you, except your hair. Six products play defense against the season’s worst offenders. Written By JESS BASSER SANDERS
Although your vacation brain and sun-warmed skin consider summer to be the “fun” season, it may be three solid months of torture for your hair.
Humidity conjures frizz and flyaways, sun fades carefully formulated color, and perspiration from high temperatures deflates even the most voluminous of blowouts.
How, then, does one protect their tresses from the elements without resorting to grandmother’s vinyl bonnet? Below, VIOLET GREY offers six products that ensure hair won’t budge, frizz, fade, or wilt, no matter the weather.

Philip Kingsley’s Weatherproof Spray is an all-in-one summer savior. Not only does it keep styled strands in place and prevent static and frizz, it also contains UV protection to ensure hair color retains its brightness in the face of a strong summer sun.
Days in and out of the ocean may give you the best beach hair of your life, on the other hand it could result in dry, brittle strands. This nourishing oil helps protect against the effects of sun and saltwater. Simply comb through dry locks before shampooing.
Summer sun is color-treated hair’s worst enemy, so you’ll need to take preventative action or those cool, crisp, new highlights will be brassy and frazzled before you know it. Oribe Shampoo for Beautiful Color nourishes and protects, while its companion conditioner hydrates and prevents fading.
