Just as we switch up our skincare each season to reflect changes in the weather, our haircare routines need a little refresh as we move in to the wamer months of the year.

Exposure to the sun, chlorine and salt water during summer can damage the hair, leaving your locks looking dull and dry and in need of some serious moisture.

We've gathered together our favourite hydrating haircare products to ensure your locks are healthy, silky and soft all summer long.

The best shampoo for dry hair

Enriched with Moringa Oil and Red Algae Extract, the luxurious Shu Uemura Art of Hair Urban Moisture Shampoo gently elimates impurities, pollutants and product build-up from your hair whilst replenishing its vital moisture. The lightweight, nourishing formula conditions your hair from root to tip, leaving your locks thoroughly cleansed and hydrated.

The best conditioner for dry hair

Smooth, detangle and add a mirror-like shine to your hair with the Redken All Soft Conditioner. Formulated with a Silk-Luxe Complex, the All Soft Conditioner adds luminosity to your locks whilst nourishing each strand of hair with Argan Oil to restore moisture. Your dry, brittle hair will be transformed with renewed texture and shine.

The best treatment for dry hair

If you have straight hair in need of some moisture, the Leonor Greyl Masque Orchidee works to soften and restore the silky appearance of your hair, nourishing your locks from root to tip. Fortified with Silk Proteins, Plant Ceramides and Botanical Oils, the Masque Orchidee strengthens and rejuvenates dry, dull hair, perfect to incorporate into your haircare routine once a week.

If your hair is curly, a rich, nourishing conditioning treatment should be an essential part of your routine. The Bouclème Intensive Moisture Treatment enhances your natural curls whilst boosting their shine and softness. Marufa Butter helps to prevent breakage whilst Prickly Pear Oil provides essential vitamins to your hair. The overall health of your locks will be improved and locks will be left rich in moisture with high elasticity.

The best leave-in conditioner for dry hair

A leave-in conditioning treatment is the perfect product for your hair in the summer months, particularly when you're on holiday. The Mango Leave-in Cream from Klorane uses rich Mango Butter and Castor Oil to lock hydration into your hair, forming a defensive barrier against environmental aggressors. Especially designed to protect your hair against the drying effects of the sun, the Mango Leave-In Cream will ensure your hair is soft, shiny and glowing all summer.

The best finishing spray for dry hair

Add a final touch of shine and hydration to your locs with the Bumble and bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil UV Protective Dry Oil Finishing Spray. Enriched with a divine blend of Argan, Coconut, Sweet Almond and Macadamia Nut Oils, the Finishing Spray replenishes dry, lack-lustre hair and smoothes flyaways for a super sleek finish. Hair will be left super soft and shiny.
