Has your once-glossy hair started to resemble a haystack? Are the ends more crisp than bouncy? And are all the intense repair hair masks and split-end treatments not bringing it back? It sounds like the summer weather has won this round and your hair is in need of a cut for a healthier look.

As much as we may love the warm weather, it can do a number on even the healthiest hair thanks to scorching temperatures, the sun’s damaging UV rays and chlorine. Factor in bleaching treatments and an addiction to heat styling and it’s no wonder many of us are dealing with straggly strands that need a revamp by the end of the season.

When it comes to the best haircuts for damaged hair, It’s a 10 founder and CEO Carolyn Aronson says that a chop is the way to go. “Going shorter to cut off the damaged locks is always best,” she states. Those who fear short haircuts should know that strands will actually style better once the dead ends are removed. We’re also not suggesting you buzz off all of your hair. There are plenty of mid-length to short hairstyles that will remove fried ends and leave plenty of length to play with. When selecting a short haircut, consider adding textured layers into your look to trim dead ends and create dimension. Bangs have the same effect and offer versatility.
