With the scorching summer sun, exposure to chlorine and salt water, and pulled up hairstyles, our hair requires extra care and protection to maintain its health and radiance this season. In this blog, we will explore the top 12 hair care products and share expert tips to help you keep your hair in optimum health throughout the summer season.
Leave-in Conditioners with UV Protection
To shield your summer hair color and hair health from damaging UV rays, invest in a leave-in conditioner with UV protection. Pre-moisten your hair with water and your leave-in before entering the water. If your hair is soaked with water and conditioner, it will absorb less of drying chlorine or saltwater.

Detangle with care. Use a wide-toothed comb or a Tangle Teezer brush to detangle wet hair gently.
Prevent breakage and minimize hair damage while detangling by using a Tangle Teezer Large Ultimate Detangling Brush . This brush is specifically designed to gently work through knots and tangles, ensuring a pain-free experience.
Treat to prevent dry hair, frizz and breakage.
Prioritize deep conditioning treatments and hair masks to restore moisture and repair damage.
Remove the chlorine, sea water, and build up
7. O&M Original Detox Shampoo
To remove product buildup and impurities caused by summer activities, incorporate a clarifying shampoo into your hair care routine. O&M Original Detox Shampoo gently cleanses the hair and scalp, promoting a healthy environment for hair growth.
8. Briogeo Scalp Revival Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo
Exfoliating your scalp is crucial for removing dead skin cells and maintaining a healthy scalp. Briogeo Scalp Revival Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo is formulated with gentle exfoliants and soothing botanicals, promoting scalp health and stimulating hair growth.
Incorporate a more hydrating shower routine
With increased exposure to drying elements like the sun and water, change up your regular shampoo and conditioner for something with increased hydration and nourishment.
11. Cult & King Hair Powder
Avoid overwashing your hair, as it can strip away natural oils. Opt for dry shampoo between washes to refresh your hair like Cult & King Light or Dark Hair Powder. These loose powder dry shampoo not only are the cleanest dry shampoo on the market, but they offer added volume so great to use on day 1. Choose Dark Hair Powder for brunettes and darker and Light Hair Powder for blondes and silver hair.
Avoid applying heat
Try to avoid any heat styling this summer and instead opt for an edgy, low maintenance look like this season’s popular “lazy hot girl hair.”
12. Cult & King Style
Air dry loose waves into your hair by pairing your leave in conditioner or hair oil with a air-dry wave-inducing product, like Cult & King Style.
Apply Cult & King Style to wet hair and scrunch in an upward motion. Diffuse or air dry.
