Don't we all just love straight hair? But keeping our hair sleek, shiny and in place all day long, especially in humid fall weather is like fighting the laws of Mother Nature. The moisture in the air causes hydrogen bonds to form between the proteins and water molecules in our hair, making it frizzy and curly, but enough science for now! On a serious note, if you think pin-straight hairstyles are for all seasons, we know to what lengths you love your straight tresses!
Here are three tips that will help you protect and maintain your straight hair in humid fall weather:
1. Wash your hair with a moisturizing shampoo and follow-up with a good, frizz-control conditioner to give your tresses just the right amount of care and repair they need. After the wash, rinse your hair once again with a stream of cold water. This will help to lock out moisture, seal the pores in your scalp and close your hair cuticles, allowing you to keep your hair straight all day long.
2. Smoothing in a frizz taming serum in your hair is a great way to protect your straight tresses in humid fall weather. The serum blocks out humidity and controls the occurrence of frizz. A good, sulfate-free serum also adds a nice shine to your hair, without making it feel greasy or heavy.
3. When styling your straight hair for longer wear, always remember to mist your tresses with a few pumps of weather control hairspray. Most humidity resistant hairsprays are water-free, which means they will never dampen your hairstyle. Besides locking-out humidity, the hairspray will also take care of frizz and disobedient flyways, allowing you to flaunt your smooth, sleek, straight hair all day long.
