If there's one thing that's guaranteed to turn your beautiful bangs into a frizzy mess, it's humidity. Even if you're only exposing your fringe to the elements for as long as it takes you to commute to work, the excess moisture in the air, combined with heat and sweat, can basically destroy your hairstyle. So, how can you show humidity who's boss and regain control of your bangs?
1/ Dry hair
Before stepping outside, make sure your hair is 100% dry. If there's so much as a single drop of water left in your hair, the humidity in the air will latch onto it and turn it into a frizz ball before you can say "hairspray", especially if it's anywhere near your bangs.
When straightening your bangs, start by drying them straight with a small round brush. Then, when they're totally dry, spritz them with a thermal protectant like Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray and finish with your flat iron.
This is a total no-brainer but it bears repeating: set your bangs with hairspray, and make sure you use plenty of it! A lightweight product like Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray will create a protective barrier between your hair and the elements, thus preventing contact with any moisture in the air.
4/ Blotting papers
To absorb sweat and oil from your forehead, use blotting papers. They'll keep your bangs from sticking to your face, and help to keep your forehead feeling fresh.
5/ Dry shampoo
Last but not least, you should keep your friends close and your dry shampoo closer when battling the bang-kryptonite that is humidity. A small amount of Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray will absorb excess oil and sweat that can weigh your bangs down and make them look greasy.
