Best Bet: Ouidad’s Sun Shield Conditioner


With Memorial Day weekend coming up, we're ready to welcome the arrival of beach season. Ouidad's leave-in Sun & Sport Conditioner is a worthy addition to your beach tote, protecting tresses from turning split and sun-fried. Though the brand is known for its line of curl-boosting products, this spritz-on UV blocker kept our own fine, straight hair from turning into its usual gnarled, windblown mess as well. The lightweight spray adds moisture (plus a bit of body) to limp locks without making them sticky or crispy, and the proteins ward off damage caused by saltwater or chlorine.

Ouidad Sun Shield, $20 at Sephora or online.
