Summer is almost here, and while that means trips to the beach, summer vacations and a whole lotta Rosé, that ALSO means frizzy, unmanageable hair – ick! Used and loved by celebrity hair stylists, including Enzo Angileri, Bridget Brager, Peter Butler and Ahn Co Tran, these two drugstore products will help to keep hair soft, manageable, frizz free and healthy all summer long.
The Infusium Repair + Renew Leave-in Treatment Spray and Repair + Renew Smoothing Serum (which have saved Kate Bosworth, Sarah Paulson and Claire Danes on the red carpet from frizzy hair disasters) are chock full of Argan Oil and Keratin to help build strength and elasticity, while taming frizz and promoting hair manageability.
The Infusium Repair + Renew Smoothing Serum keeps hair in place, smooth, shiny and frizz-free. Not only is it perfect for a formal look, but it’s great to tame that frizz when the humidity breaks out this summer. It is a dual-functioning serum that protects wet hair from styling friction and breakage; and amplifies shine and smoothness when used on dry hair.
Additionally, Infusium’s Repair + Renew Leave-in Treatment is a cult favorite product from the brand and is your ultimate beach bag essential for this summer. This formula coats hair with lightweight conditioners to help mend split ends, tame flyaways, enhance shine and improve hair manageability through the day and night. So when you’re thinking you’re bound to have knotty windblown, sea-salty hair this summer, you can think again – because this treatment can tame even the most tangled and damaged locks!

6 Tips To Achieve Red Carpet Worthy Hair
Tip #1: If You Want Sleek You Need A Good High-Heat Flatiron!

Ultra Smooth™ Professional Styling Iron ($89.95) which features ceramic-coated plates infused with Argan Oil and Keratin Protein
