The dog days of summer are upon us. They’re hot, sticky, and they beg for us to spend as much time submerged in water as possible — whether it's a cold shower, the salty sea, or a rushing river. The pure bliss of living in a swimsuit and going from soaking wet to sun-drenched and back again is what summer is all about. But salt, chlorine, and even a dip in fresh water are not always conducive to maintaining flawless hair.
We love beachy waves, but quite often it’s easier to get the look with a blowdryer and a bottle of texturizer than to let your locks dry out in the open. But who has time for that when there’s so much swimming to do? So we’ve put together an easy, yet all-encompassing guide to perfecting the art of air-drying for every different water situation you may enjoy this summer.
So dive on in, and don’t be afraid to get your hair wet.
