The summer weather is coming through over here on the east coast and we couldn’t be more excited for it. Days lounging at the beach under the warm sun and BBQ pool parties are at the top of our to-do lists. However, the summer weather can be a big bummer to one major part of our bodies: our hair! That’s right, no matter what type of hair you have or what length you’re at, you have probably been personally victimized by the cruel summer season. This year, don’t get stuck dealing with a hair problem that you have no idea how to get out of! We’ve got some awesome tips and tricks to help you deal with your sticky hair situation.

If you plan on hanging out by the pool every single day, then let us warn you ahead of time to be careful with your hair. If you don’t already know, the chlorine inside of pools is known to turn blonde hair green and dry out hair in general. This can leave plenty of us crying over our newly polished locks. Staying proactive, however, can easily combat this chlorine problem. After hanging out by the pool all day, be sure to take a shower and wash your hair off immediately. You can also prevent the chlorine from getting into your hair by packing on the leave-on conditioner before heading to the pool. You’ll actually be multi-tasking as you drench your hair in moisture and avoid the summer pool/hair problems!
