Post-Summer Dry Hair Fixes

Five products to keep your hair hydrated and full of shine.

Post-summer hair is a real thing. For months we spent hours under the sun, lounging in chlorinated pools. Now with the colder, drier weather upon us and the need for the warmth of that extra-hot shower, it’s quite normal to have dull hair that’s looking for some TLC. While we update our skincare routine for fall, we should do the same for our locks. A haircut is the best place to start. Trimming off split ends is like a reset button. If hitting the salon isn't a reality for you right now, no worries, these five products will nourish your hair back to its prime:
