The best hair products of May 2022 to buy in time for summer

Summer is on the horizon and with it, a social calendar filled to the brim with warm weather activities. But don’t forget that while you’re busy planning your summer outfits, your hair also needs a little TLC. Enter the best hair products of May 2022. All that vitamin D can do the body good, but too much time in the sun can damage your locks as well as your skin. That’s why this month’s slew of protective leave-in products, styling products and more from brands like Sol De Janeiro, Amika and Bumble and Bumble will have you clicking ‘add to cart’ quickly. Overall, a major theme is the key ingredients that hydrate. (Think: hyaluronic acid, natural oils like rosehip, squalene, and coconut, to name a few).

If you’re looking to strengthen strands from within, this is your lucky month because Ouai has just released their highly anticipated hair supplements (based on chaga mushroom and hyaluronic acid) as well as a scalp serum inspired by skin care intended to encourage new hair growth. Especially in the summer, your hair routine should be as low maintenance as possible. That means saying yes to air drying and choosing easy-to-use tools like T3’s new Hot Brush.
