We’re all doing the happy dance now that spring is here and summer’s just around the corner. How quickly we forget how the sun can cause frizzies, dry, damaged hair and worse. Ick. To make sure our locks are lovely (and continue to stay lovely), we checked in with celebrity hairstylist Janine Jarmon, owner of Hairroin in Hollywood on what to do this season.

Here are her three tips:

1. Apply aerosol sunscreen on your hair before going out. Look for hair styling products such as hair sprays that contain UVA/UVB sunscreen to help shield your locks from sun exposure
