Blame it on the sun, the chline, the salt: Summer is hard on hair.

Blame it on the sun, the chlorine, the salt: Summer is hard on hair. Thankfully, we can turn to hair guru Kevin Mancuso and celebrity stylist Lona Vigi for a regimen that will bring dull, dry hair back to life just in time for fall.

On wet hair, massage shampoo from root to tip. Pro tip: Because summer hair aggressors like chlorine, salt, and sunscreen can diminish shine, Vigi recommends mixing a couple of teaspoons of apple cider vinegar with two cups of warm water and working the cocktail through wet hair before shampooing. The DIY treatment acts like a clarifier to rinse away residue. Use it just once or twice every few months, she says—anything more is excessive.

Use an conditioner as its cleansing counterpart to nourish. "Focus on the ends and distribute with a wide-tooth comb," Mancuso says. Let it linger for five minutes or longer, and finish with a cold-water rinse. Contrary to popular belief, "don't rinse too thoroughly," Mancuso says. Over-rinsing can strip your hair of its natural oils, so stop when you feel just a light coating, he says.

You already know oils are the greased lightning of hair care. Gently towel-dry hair to cut down on frizz and apply just one pump (this baby's got horsepower) from mid-length to the ends of your hair. Blow-dry or air-dry, and if you're happy with your look—you're good to go!

This cool gadget infuses strands with moisture, adding lift and volume; use it right before you head out for an extra-luscious look (or in the A.M. to perk up slept-on hair). Fill the basin with water, let it warm up, and pull the trigger. Holding it a few inches away from your scalp, ease the prongs through your hair section by section to distribute mist. The result: shiny, healthy, hydrated, happy hair. Do a few dramatic hair tosses in the mirror. Now go stop some traffic.
