Doing Your Own Hair Is a Breeze With These New Summer Products From Sephora
Summer 2020 may be a little different than we may have predicted last year, but that doesn't mean you can't still try out this season's hairstyle trends — and maybe even some new color, too. After all, who's to say you need to have a beach to get beachy waves?
There are so many new hair-care products at Sephora that will have you ready to go on a hair adventure this summer — clarifying shampoos, lightweight products for wash-and-go styles, and plenty of UV protection all around. Plus, since you've got to wash and condition your own hair anyway (and for the foreseeable future in some states), these products can help you see the sunny side of things, and maybe even inspire you to try something new.
So bring on the summer style vibes with the new hair-care goodies from Sephora that do all that and more, rounded up for you ahead.
Playa Monoi Milk Leave-In Conditioner
This new Playa Monoi Milk Leave-In Conditioner ($24) helps soften and detangle hair, whether it's used wet or dry. Plus, the product's coconut milk conditions (and smells fab), while Tahitian Monoi milk (practically) transports you to the islands as it smooths frizz.
Kérastase Fresh Affair Refreshing Dry Shampoo
Not only does this Kérastase Fresh Affair Refreshing Dry Shampoo ($19-$36) quickly absorb oil with rice starch so hair feels soft and clean, there's also a lasting neroli scent inside to hide unwanted odors (even during lapses between actual shampoos).
Drybar Blonde Ale Color-Enhancing Brightening Hair Mask
Blonds can get a little extra TLC with this Drybar Blonde Ale Color-Enhancing Brightening Hair Mask ($35), offering rice proteins to strengthen color-treated hair and crushed pearl to add shine. Of course, there are also neutralizing purple pigments when your blond hue itself needs a little help, too.
Christophe Robin Color-Shield Mask
Adding dye can also make hair more brittle, so following up color-safe shampooing with this antioxidant Christophe Robin Color-Shield Mask ($43) can repair hair fibers (with protein-rich macadamia nut oil), so hair is left silkier and stronger than ever before.
Dae Daily Shampoo and Conditioner
Both the Dae Daily Shampoo ($24) and Dae Daily Conditioner ($24) work to hydrate hair. The shampoo gently cleanses with hibiscus flower extract — and without stripping natural oils — while the conditioner adds in moringa-leaf extract to boost keratin production and bring needed moisture back into the scalp as it softens.
Adwoa Beauty Baomint Deep-Conditioning Treatment
The Adwoa Beauty Baomint Deep-Conditioning Treatment ($36) is a rich treat for dry, textured hair types. It's full of essential oils and butters that strengthen hair cuticles, soothe flakiness, and improve elasticity so hair is glossy and more manageable, too.

For enviable beach waves (even without the beach), this Kérastase Soleil Nourishing After Sun Spray ($29) texturizes damp hair to amplify your natural curl pattern. But, even if hair is straight, it still has babassu oil to boost shine and UV protection against the sun's rays all summer long.
GHD Styler Sets - Upbeat Collection
This GHD Cobalt Blue Platinum+ Styler Set - Upbeat Collection ($249) is a top-of-the-line flat iron that constantly monitors heat as you work and adjusts as needed, which can result in less breakage.

There are also new kits that offer similar types of products, but that address different issues, including the Restore Silicone Detox Kit ($29) for dry, damaged hair, the volume-boosting Full Silicone Detox Kit ($29), and the No-Frizz Silicone Detox Kit ($29) to take on frizziness in particular.
Fable and Mane HoliRoots Nourishing Conditioner
This Fable and Mane HoliRoots Nourishing Conditioner ($29) cares for all hair types, locking in moisture with smoothing, soothing ingredients like turmeric, coconut, and hibiscus.
Fable and Mane HoliRoots Repairing Hair Mask
Coconut, mango, and banana? You may think you're looking at ingredients for a smoothie, but that's actually what's inside of this Fable and Mane HoliRoots Repairing Hair Mask ($32). Damaged hair gets treated to those moisturizing fruits that also work to repair damage from excessive styling, pollution, or other environmental stress.
Adwoa Beauty Baomint Protect and Shine Oil Blend
The naturally derived oils found in this Adwoa Beauty Baomint Protect and Shine Oil Blend ($20) all stimulate and support the scalp, so hair is well-nourished but not left greasy. One standout is its grapeseed oil that may help protect against the production of a hormone that can lead to unwanted hair loss.
Amika Fadeblock Pre-Shampoo Color Seal

Perennially popular, the Invisibobble Slim The Elegant Hair Ring - Spring Florals ($16) is now packed together in a mixed set of six.
Kérastase Soleil Nourishing After-Sun Shampoo and Hair Mask
Both the new Kérastase Soleil Nourishing After-Sun Shampoo ($35) and the Kérastase Soleil Nourishing After-Sun Hair Mask ($62) hydrate hair with coconut water and offer a UV filter to help absorb UV rays (and limit damage). Of course, the shampoo also helps remove chlorine and cleanses, while the conditioner softens as the mask sinks in.
Moroccanoil Blonde Perfecting Purple Shampoo
This Moroccanoil Blonde Perfecting Purple Shampoo ($12-$24) packs in violet pigments to counteract yellow or orange undertones that may turn blond or light brown hair from bold to brassy in between color treatments. Of course, it also gently cleanses and adds in argan oil to seal the cuticle, so hair is left shiny, too.
Ouai Mini Hair Oil
OK, this hair oil isn't a brand-new product, but it's now in a new size that's perfect for a beach bag. When the Ouai Mini Hair Oil ($14) is applied to wet hair, it protects against heat and UV damage, and leaves a glossy shine and smooth finish to air-dried styles.
