There's a major dichotomy between summer hair and hair in, well, any other season. When it's cooler out, we put a bit more effort into our strands. We're inspired by fashion month, excited to try pretty updos and styles for the holiday season, and eager to test-drive buzzy new looks as we transition into springtime. But once summer rolls around, we adopt more of a laissez-faire policy. It's hot out; we don't want to deal. Period.
And it seems as though the market reflects our sentiments: The latest summer hair launches are all about low-maintenance beachy hair, styling tools optional. We looked to Sephora for some of the best new launches in this category, and we can't wait to spritz, smooth, scrunch our way through the rest of the season with these new-to-shelves mane perfectors. Take a look at them in all their glory below!
After all the time we spend outdoors during the summer, it's a miracle our hair doesn't melt right out of its follicles. But luckily, with some good after-sun products like this deep-conditioning formula from Sachajuan, you can restore your sun-beaten hair back to health in no time.
This texturizer is like a hair spray and salt spray mated. Suited for either wet or dry hair, this mist delivers mega-volume and a chic matte finish.
Another key player in the volumizing arena is this new offering from Living Proof. Flat, lifeless hair doesn't stand a chance against this lightweight lifting formula that won't leave behind any traces of residue.
What could be more appropriate for summertime than channeling mermaid hair? Except instead of the swirled, multicolored hair you see on Instagram, this oil will nourish your mane while delivering an invigorating scent fit for a majestic sea creature.
Coconut oil is no doubt an incredibly popular beauty ingredient, and for good reason. It's hydrating and nourishing, perfect for giving new life to curls, like this cleansing conditioner from Ouidad.
Even the most beach-swept, dried-out hair can be revived after using this deep-conditioning treatment mask. Place on damp hair from the mid-lengths down and rinse out to bring your locks back to life.
Just like we need a detox after a long afternoon of margarita drinking, hair needs a major detox from summer activities, too. And just like the margaritas, you can play mixologist by combining the rainforest oil with the detoxifying cream base to create your very own DIY scalp and hair mask cocktail.
