In case that lingering bead of sweat or humid subway ride didn’t work, let me be the first to tell you that summer has finally arrived to both invigorate and frustrate us all. Sunny days and rooftop shindigs are surefire ways to usher in happy vibes and your cutest hot weather fits. However, there’s also the inevitable annoyance of humidity which almost always attacks our hair first. For this reason, having the best summer hair products for your curl pattern (or lack thereof) is crucial.

You’ll be hard-pressed to get through a week, or even a day, without a new styler or cleansing product dropping at your local drugstore or Sephora. Understandably so, it’s easy to simply stick with whatever you’ve been using for eons when the products are overwhelming. Thankfully, I am here to pull you out of your years-long rut.

Because I’m also a product junkie and always looking for the next best thing, I thought who better than the people I follow (and vice-versa) on the ‘Gram to share what they’re using this summer and beyond? Their responses did not disappoint. From all-natural moisturizers like coconut and jojoba oil to toning shampoo for non-brassy strands to plenty of dry shampoos, here are the must-haves you should definitely check out.
