Summer is one of our favorite times of year, but with the warmer weather comes a ton of humidity that cause frizz to wreak havoc on your hairstyle if you don't know how to stop it. The good news is we have a few easy styling tips below to help prevent frizz and keep your mane calm and totally under control!
Using heat to style your hair might not seem like the most attractive idea when it's 85+ degrees out, but setting your strands into a smooth blowout will create a frizz-free foundation to work with, as opposed to air-drying which can increase frizziness in humid conditions.
Before you begin any brushwork, apply Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream, then complete your blowout in sections, using a round brush to shape the hair. For natural curls, use Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Curl Taming Cream and dry with a diffuser on a medium heat.
Keeping your hair up in a bun, a braided hairstyle or a knot of any kind will keep your locks under wraps, thus reducing the amount of humidity your mane is exposed to.
3. Protective sprays
After completing any hairstyle, seal your strands against the elements with a protective spray. Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray will add shine and tame any flyaways, and LOCK IT Weather Control Hairspray will give your 'do long lasting hold, even in super swampy conditions.
Headbands, bows, headscarves, ribbons, bandanas, barrettes, hats... if you like the way it looks, use it to shield your hair against humidity. Accessories are essential for keeping frizz at bay during the summer, and they can tie your whole look together, so it's a win-win!
Hydrated, well-conditioned hair will absorb less moisture from the air around it, which means less frizz. So, a weekly deep conditioning mask, plenty of regular conditioner and leave-in products are all compulsory! You may also want to keep some serum on hand for any touch-ups between washes and after drying.
