Hot weather not only leaves us feeling hot and sticky it leaves us also with the dreaded humidity frizz! Here are a few tips to help tame your mane with the hot weather rapidly approaching...
TIP: Creating a frizz free mane starts at the time of shampooing.. Hair has lots of tiny strands coming off it and if you rub it dry, you ruffle the surface and that creates this frizz. Instead, squeeze out water with your towel. Blot don't rub!
TIP: Rather than a serum, use an oil such as an Argan or Morrocan oil. Go for one with a slightly more fluid texture so it’s not too heavy, and comb it through the hair when wet. This will build up a thin resistant coating that protects hair from the effects of humidity.
TIP: Once a week deep conditioning treatments help keep frizz and puffiness under control by maintaining healthy hair. Apply a moisture intensive treatment to your ends, wrap the hair up in plastic or a shower cap and wait anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours.This will infuse lots of moisture to decrease frizz and protect from humidity.
TIP: Heat your hair rather than blow drying. After combing your hair through with your product, wrap your hair into a low nape bun leave to dry naturally for as long as possible. Use your dryer on the lowest speed highest heat or attach a diffuser (used to diffuse the air and heat the hair) to finish drying/styling your hair.
It is possible to have curl not frizz in these extreme humid months.
