Summer heat, salt water and chlorine can do so much damage to your hair that by season’s end you’re not sure all the beaches and rays of sun we’re worth it. However, Allure has 3 ways you can rescue your hair before fall.

Get a cut. Parting with those beloved inches can be tough, but getting a good, healthy trim should be on the top of your list. Cutting off the dead ends and refreshing your hair style can do wonders.

Go easy on the shampoo. Shampoo every other day at most. Some still cringe at the idea, but shampooing every day is extremely drying to your scalp and hair. Try swapping in a dry shampoo or a leave-in conditioner on the in-between days to freshen up.

Use a deep conditioner. They are the ultimate thirst quencher for parched hair. Try a deep conditioning treatment, like Kérastase Masque Nutri-Thermique or Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Masque. Leave the masque in your hair for up to 20 minutes and then rinse thoroughly with cool to lukewarm water. The cooler temperature will help keep your hair’s cuticle closed, creating healthier, shinier hair.
