With naturally thick, voluminous hair, keeping humidity-related frizz at bay can be something of an effort. In fact, sometimes it can seem downright impossible. However, the gorgeous Liya Kebede proved that it is totally doable when she stepped onto the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival. Though it wasn't strictly humid, warm weather can wreak all kinds of havoc on your hair, too, so she still gets a ton of beauty kudos.

Anyway, the important thing is that she inspires the rest of us to get our hair looking that good, especially in humid conditions!


Any serious frizz-fighting mission starts in the shower. When you wash your hair, make sure you moisturize it with a conditioner and, once a week or so, take the time to do a nourishing mask. This will keep your hair looking and feeling healthy, reducing your chances of unwittingly metamorphosing into a walking, talking ball of cotton candy.

When it comes to drying, apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream evenly throughout before you even think about switching on your hairdryer. It will smooth the cuticle and tame frizz and flyaways before they have a chance to ruin your hairstyle.

Climate control

When you're done styling, lock in your look with a mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Weather Control Hairspray. It keeps frizz at bay for up to 48 hours and keeps humidity under control, taming any remaining flyaways from the moment it hits the hair. Alternatively, mist a straight style with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray for a touchable finish with all the benefits of a serum, combined with the utility of a spray.

If all else fails

If you're nowhere near your products and things start to go awry, why not try a chic updo to hide all evidence of a frizz-storm until you get home? Or just jump into the nearest pool, it's up to you...
