We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but summer is slowly coming to an end. That means it’s time to refocus all of your energy on the tasks you’ve been neglecting for the past couple months—including your hair routine. We’re all guilty of skipping a wash day or two as we head out for brunch or a day at the beach. Let’s not even get started on the time we’ve spent in the sun frying our natural hair. No judgment here, but it’s time to undo all the damage that comes along with summer fun.
