How to Repair Hair From Chlorine and Sun Damage

How to Jolt Your Frazzled, End-of-Summer Hair Back to Life

While the good parts of Summer far outweigh the bad, warm weather can leave hair in a condition something less to be desired. "Usually at the end of August and around Labor Day, everyone is clogging the phones with, 'My hair turned green from the pool,' or 'My hair is superdry from the saltwater at the beach,'" says hair expert Chris Lospalluto. You don't have to start Fall off with frizzy, moss-toned hair, however. To see Lospalluto's three tips for giving lackluster strands a piece of your mind, just keep reading.

  1. The chlorine fix: Before you whip up a magical batch of DIY chlorine remover at home, Lospalluto urges you to think again. "In terms of chlorine, I always recommend seeking professional help," he says.
  2. The dry hair fix: Whether you swim in the ocean, lake, or pool, or even just spend hours outside at a daytime cookout, water and sun don't always play nice with your hair. Enter: the hair mask. But in lieu of reaching for a traditional, creamy conditioner, Lospalluto advises trying a deep-penetrating hair oil, like the classic VO5 Hot Oil Treatment ($4). (Argan oil will work, as well.) Start by applying a little bit to the ends as to not weigh the hair down, adding more to the rest of your strands as needed.
  3. The haircut fix: The easiest way to kick frayed, moisture-depleted ends to the curb? Get a haircut. It's as simple as that.
