How to repair your summer-damaged hair
Beach hair, it was fun while it lasted.

UV rays. Chlorinated swimming pools. Anything involving a beachy windstorm. Summer is great for our psyche but murder on our hair.

In an attempt to fix the damage we?ve done, we headed straight to Dear Clark in Uptown, where owner/stylist Kaycee Clark gave us four great tips to help repair our parched locks.

It?s all about conditioner Make sure the one you?re using is super-duper hydrating. Try Dear Clark Resurrecting Rinse ($24) or Neutrogena Triple Moisture Daily Deep Conditioner ($7).

Get a trim Revolutionary idea, we know, but that summer ponytail is full of split ends. Get rid of the damaged tips to promote healthy growth and leave your hair smooth and ready for a new fall do.

Rinse shampoo and conditioner with cold water This will help seal the cuticle down, add shine and tame flyaways.

Put away the flatiron Heat tools add stress to an already hairy situation. But if you can?t step away from the flatiron, get a keratin treatment ($300), which will decrease your need to plug in and straighten out.
