Locks We Love

Hate your hair in summer? Curly, straight, long, short—sun, humidity and chlorine wreak havoc. Pick and choose among these AskMelissa Best Kept Secrets to help your hair beat the heat.


Frederic Fekkai Marine Summer Hair Marine Clean Detox Shampoo

Put your hair in rehab with this detox shampoo from Fekkai. Summer hair gets abuse from sun, chlorine and the various lotions and potions that seem to migrate from our hands. We love how this shampoo moisturizes, and its UV protection keeps our “natural” color from fading. The shampoo smells delicious, and it cleans our hair without stripping. It’s so gentle we even use it on our little ones.

Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo

A day at the beach can lead to a night-on-the-town with little time for primping. Luckily, we found a dry shampoo that takes us from day to night in seconds flat. This shampoo contains oat extract that absorbs excess oil, refreshes hair and adds volume, all without water. Natural and organic, those of us with sensitive skin can relax—no allergic reactions here.

Phyto Phytolisse Finishing Serum

Humidity is the enemy! So we charge into battle with this serum to keep our lovely locks frizz and fly-away free. Massage a few drops into wet hair, then blow dry, flat iron or inflict whatever other torture you will on your tresses. And don’t be surprised when your friends ask about your new perfume—this stuff smells terrific.

Frederic Fekkai Glossing Cream

We love a professional blow out, but when we’re forced to DIY, nothing makes our hair happier than this miracle goo. It fights frizz, shields hair from heat styling, protects from UVA and UVB rays and leaves our locks silky and shiny. All that packed into a pea-size amount massaged onto dry hair after styling. If only it did windows!

Does your hair “rust”? We slather with sunscreen to protect our skin from burning. Try this spray to prevent your dual process from fading and drying. We use it when we exit the ocean and pool to detangle, too. Apply to wet or dry hair and comb through, and leave the beach with the same hair color you came with.
