With warmer months ahead (they can’t come soon enough!), we’re here to help you and your precious locks prepare for the heat. Whether you’re lounging at the pool, relaxing on the beach or headed on vacation, your hair is bound to need some extra TLC. Check out our favorite warm weather tips and tricks from celebrity hairstylist Bridget Brager for healthy, beautiful hair…starting at the scalp!

Tip #1
During the summer, staying cool is often top of mind, so what better time to put down the hot tools? To create a quick natural yet styled look, use the Define+ Curl Cream on damp hair to enhance your curls or create beachy waves on straighter hair. This curl cream is lightweight and will help make your hair look smoother, bouncier and more defined — another added benefit is frizz and heat protection.

Tip #2
Make sure to keep the Refresh+ Dry Shampoo in your beach bag to add texture and volume, and to soak up any summer sweat, while on the go. What makes this ultra-fine dry shampoo great is that it quickly absorbs excess oil and sweat, balances and soothes the scalp, and adds volume and fullness without leaving any residue behind — and will leave your hair smelling clean. This is a must and you’ll be well-prepared when your friend calls you mid-beach day with a last-minute invite to meet up.

Tip #3
Say no to frizz! In these upcoming warmer, humid months, the Defrizz+ Oil Treatment might just become one of your new best friends — it will protect your hair from frizz for 72 hours!* Need we say more? You can use the product on damp hair before styling or add it to dry hair. This multitasking hair oil gets to the root of dry, damaged, frizzy hair as it re-energizes and nourishes the scalp, locks in hydration, reduces flyaways, restores shine and so much more. Good thing it’s small enough to fit in your carry-on — new travel companion alert!

Tip #4
Because summertime usually means you’re out and about more, your scalp gets a lot more sun and heat exposure. When washing your hair, as a pre-shampoo treatment add a boost of hydration to your scalp and hair by using the Defrizz+ Oil Treatment. Post shampoo, use the Densifying+ Treatment on wet or dry hair to give your scalp extra nourishment and replenishment. And remember to wear a sun hat — your scalp and skin will thank you.

Tip #5
Before jumping in that pool or diving into the ocean, saturate your strands with your favorite R+F conditioner to help minimize the amount of harsh chemicals or salt your hair absorbs. You may want to store a travel container of this product in your beach bag too. For the blondes out there, this will also help keep your hair from turning green.

No matter what adventures your summer will hold, be sure to bring your R+F haircare along for the ride to keep your locks refreshed, hydrated, protected and frizz-free — all summer long.
