For many of us, summer can be synonymous with dry, frizzy hair. The stifling, sunny days of summer are now in full swing — and there's still another month (maybe two) of warm weather to go!

Expert stylist Suki Duggan, from the Donsuki Townhouse Salon on the Upper East Side in NYC, offers these easy, DIY tips on salvaging your hair during the final stretch of summer:

  • Add vinegar as a cleanser. Vinegar is a great hair conditioner and can improve cleanliness and shine. For simple conditioning, just add 1 tablespoon vinegar to your hair as you rinse it.
  • Shampoo with baking soda to remove smog. Higher summertime pollution means more free radicals to zap the shine and color from hair. Add a pinch of baking soda to your regular shampoo — it will cleanse without stripping your hair of its natural, healthy oils.
  • Wet your hair before going into chlorine. It actually makes your hair more resistant to absorbing the chlorine chemicals.

Thanks for the easy tips, Suki!
