Sometimes you just want to save some time. Sometimes you’re trying to avoid drying your overstressed locks. Sometimes you just don’t feel like it.
Whatever the reason, not washing your hair gets a lot more difficult in the summer with the humidity and muggy weather. But it’s still possible, especially if you take advantage of the 3 products below:
1. Baroness von Luxe Shower Cap ($15)
Okay, this may seem pricey for a piece of plastic that goes on your head, but a good shower cap is crucial for keeping your hair looking good between washes. By keeping the moisture and wetness out from your shower, you’ll make sure those locks don’t start looking stringy.
2. Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo ($11)
Way better than baby powder, this doesn’t clump and blends well into all shades of hair. Also check out our other recommendations for shampooing sans water.
3. Goody StayPut Headbands ($4)
A good gym headband like Goody’s StayPut headbands actually do what their name says—they stay put, which means sweat stays away too. They lay flat on your head and are thick enough to tame flyaways without creating a permanent kink in your hair. These headbands are also cute enough to wear post-workout.
As a last resort, pick up a hat from our Summer Hats Guide and wear it over your locks all summer long.
