In the summer, protecting your hair from the sun, water, chlorine and salt—all while looking chic poolside—can be tough. But wait! Sam Villa, Founding Partner of Sam Villa and Redken Education Artistic Director, offers five summer hair fixes to keep your hair healthy and gorgeous…

1. Protect. To help maintain your hair’s optimal health and control during the summer months, try using a light hair oil like Redken’s Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine. It’s also perfect second and third day hair, and for adding shine.

2. Set. Take advantage of the braid parade. Tame your hair poolside by braiding tresses. At night, remove the braid for casual curl and texture. Can it be any easier?

3. Temperature. Don’t crank thermal tools up during the summer months when hair is fragile—stick to medium and color-treated temperatures. Also, slow down! Slow down the pass with the iron so heat is directed to the sections of hair that need to be altered; it prevents unnecessary wear on hair and styles it much faster.

4. Spray. Hairspray can be a woman’s best friend, especially in summer when humidity and flyaways are a factor. To try: Redken’s Fashion Work 12 Versatile Hairspray; it’s formulated with Vitamins C and E to protect hair and prevent color fading, and it provides 24-hour humidity resistance and 8-hour control.

5. Shine. While blonde may be the ultimate summer tress shade, the hue does tend to be less shiny than darker hair. To pump up the gloss factor, try Redken’s Shine Flash 02 Glistening Mist with Vitamin B5 and camelina oil to boost hair’s natural shine and control frizz for an ultra polished look.
