Ready for a dip in the pool? To keep chlorine from drying out your hair, saturate your strands with fresh water before diving in. Your hair will soak up the fresh, not chlorinated, water. Hair already pool-parched? Try this DIY mask from Lydia Sarfati, the founder of the skin-care line Repêchage: Mash 1 avocado with 1 tablespoon safflower oil. After shampooing, massage the mixture into your scalp and wet hair. Cover with plastic wrap and leave on for 10 minutes; rinse.

Another way to get your hair looking great this summer? Invest in one of these cute hair accessories.
