9 Treatments to Prep Your Hair for Summer Highlights

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Spring is in the air, as is the impulse to lighten up our hair color. But before you ask your colorist to reach for the bleach, get your locks in tip top shape. The chemicals in hair dye can wreak havoc, causing dryness and breakage, so shop now for home treatments to restore and rehydrate soon-to-be taxed tresses. Most of us have to fake sun-kissed, summer highlights in this City by the Bay—but thankfully pretty much every neighborhood has its own sweet beauty supply store (or three). And when all else fails, or the purse strings are feeling tight, drugstore hair-health products are just as good. Check out all our picks in the gallery.
