Six hair products to get you through summer

Beauty retailer Sephora has given us its list of favorites to achieve effortless-looking summer hair.

Keep your curls alive: HerCut Curly Long Layers Catalyst ($28) smooth, soften, and control your hair, deterring frizz and unruliness, while providing curl retention in high humidity.

In addition, Ouidad's Botanical Boost Moisture Infusing & Refreshing Spray ($16) will preserve moisture, prevent frizz, and enhance shine of your curls.

Tame the mane: Living proof's  Wave Shaping, Curl Defining No Frizz Styling Spray ($35) addresses the two causes of frizz, humidity and friction, by providing a thin humidity barrier on your hair while reducing surface friction.

Your hair needs SPF, too: Phyto's Phytoplage L'Originale Protective Beach Spray ($22) protects all hairtypes against sun, salt, and chlorine.

Fight the grease: Ojon's Rub-Out Dry Cleanser ($24) will get rid of impurities, excess oil, and product without water, while increasing hair volume and giving the hair and scalp a nourishing treatment.

And finally, accessorize: Thick Braidie headbands ($10 each) look like braided strands and come in five different hair colors.
