L'Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Séve Protectrice
Some ladies just can't put down the blow-dryer, and we understand! To protect your hair from daily heat styling, add this L'Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Séve Protectrice ($32, arriving in August) to your hair regimen. The cream is formulated to protect strands over 400°F. This new addition to the already-popular Mythic Oil line is a flat-iron addict's essential.
Living Proof Restore Revitalizing Spray
There's sunscreen for your face and body, and the Living Proof Restore Revitalizing Spray ($26) is like UV protection for your hair. This innovative spritz defends hair against heat damage and harmful sunrays.
Yes To Coconut Ultra Moisturizing Shampoo
Yes To Coconut Ultra Moisturizing Shampoo ($8) smells like a beach vacation. The shampoo is SLS- and paraben-free, so you don't have to worry about stripping strands already ravaged by the harsh Summer elements.
Pop quiz: what's the one Summer hair issue that every hair type has to deal with? Frizz. The Kérastase Discipline Bain Fluidealiste ($39) and Maskeratine ($63) smooth brittle flyaways. Just hit hair with a blast of cool water afterward to get maximum shine and sleek, tamed locks.
Alterna Bamboo Beach Sun Recovery Spray
Alterna Bamboo Beach Sun Recovery Spray ($20) is a poolside essential this vacation season. You'll want to spritz your strands with this leave-in conditioner before and after taking a dip. The Bamboo Beach line also includes a dry shampoo and salt spray for all your Summer styling occasions.
Moroccanoil Smoothing Mask
The oil is your favorite, and the mousse is a must have — then the Moroccanoil Smoothing Mask (available later this month) is your next purchase. It's got argan butter to moisturize parched strands and a smoothing complex that makes detangling a much simpler feat.
Blowpro Back in Time Antiaging Density Spray
Your hair loses its thickness as you age. So the fact that Blowpro Back in Time Antiaging Density Spray ($20) promises (and delivers) the full mane of a 20-year-old makes it an essential.

You'd be wise to add the Sally Hershberger Hyper Hydration Super Keratin Spray ($13) to your frizz-fighting arsenal this season. The keratin protein protects hair from heat damage and strengthens weak strands.
