5 ways to… Fuss-free hair

‘Chlorine, like bleach, makes hair swell, and salt water roughs up the cuticle,’ says Wella’s Aura Friedman. Solution: a swim cap. Or, wet hair with fresh water and apply a leave-in conditioner all over: your locks won’t be able to sop up pool or ocean water.

Quench dryness      

For supple locks, skip sulfate-based shampoos and use conditioner, advises Lorraine Massey, stylist and owner of Devachan Salon in New York City. These hydration-boosting steps help seal the hair’s cuticle, blocking out humidity (and stopping frizz)

Get a gloss

Summertime elements dry hair, causing frizzies, says Friedman. Nip them in the bud with a clear demi-permanent (a.k.a. gloss) applied at the salon or at home. It will smooth hair and create shine for up to four weeks.

Do the twist

French twist are always chic, says Los Angeles hairstylist Andy LeCompte. To tame the front (and avoid looking like a fifties greaser), pass up gel and run a matte styling product like Wella Velvet Amplifier ($16, salons) through hair. Then brush it back and secure it.

Fill in the gaps

Damage (from haircolor, hot tools, too much sun) creates nicks in hair, making it susceptible to frizziness. You can fix the porous spots in hair temporary by using shampoos and conditioners with proteins, says Heather Warnke of John Frieda.
