If you live in an area that's prone to high levels of humidity, you probably know just how real the struggle against summertime frizz actually is. The moisture in the air can wreak havoc on even the most perfectly coiffed hairstyles, turning a blowout into an early Halloween 'do in no time. So, how can you stay one step ahead of humidity this summer?
Humidity-proof your hair the easy way
The most effective and least time consuming way to prevent humidity-induced frizz is by pinning your hair back in a protective hairstyle while you're outside. So, after blow-drying, straightening or curling your hair in the morning, simply pin your hair back into a fairly tight, low bun at the nape of your neck before heading out. If you're wearing your hair wavy, a braid will work just as well.
When you arrive at your destination, remove the pins and shake your hair out with your fingers. If your strands are especially prone to tangling, keep a wide-tooth comb in your bag to eliminate any knots that may occur en route.
Products that help
While protective styles prevent a lot of frizz, they work best when combined with the right products to seal your locks against the elements. A smoothing finishing spray like Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray will tame any flyaways, add shine and prevent frizz throughout the day. Similarly, a good hairspray like Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Weather Control Hairspray will also keep unwanted fuzz at bay while keeping your hair exactly where you want it.
