There’s a lot to love about summer – longer days, warmer nights, the general cheeriness that seems to emanate from every person you pass.
But if there’s one thing I (and the rest of the female population, really) could most definitely do without, it’s humidity. More specifically, what humidity does to hair. It’s like the silent killer of any sleek, perfected hair ‘do and I’ve had just about enough.
You too, huh? Well, while we can’t do anything about the weather, we can do something about the products we use. So if your hair tends to turn to frizz the moment you walk out the door during summer, these humidity-fighting products will have you covered – from washing and conditioning all the way to styling…
SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER
Yep, you can help fight humidity from the moment you wash your hair. And by choosing products that have been specifically formulated to control frizz and messiness (like the Palmolive Sleek & Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner), you’ll be one step closer to smoother hair. The Palmolive duo works by sealing your hair cuticle, which helps lock out any humidity and moisture.
If your is a bit on the hard-to-manage side, a leave-in treatment that will condition your hair and work its hardest to tame it is just what you need post-shower. L’Oreal Paris Hair Expertise EverSleek Humidity Defying Leave-In-Crème has been designed to help control frizz for up to two days and contains argan, sunflower, and olive oils. And the best bit? It won’t weight your hair down.
If you prefer to apply a serum or oil to your hair after you’ve washed it, then you’ll want to try Silk Oil of Morocco Hair and Skin Treatment. Not only has the liquid gold been formulated to leave your hair super soft and silky, but it helps control frizz and tame flyways, too. Another bonus? It’ll protect your tresses from harsh UV rays and other environmental factors that can damage your hair.
This part can be a bit trickier when you’re trying to beat humidity. You want your hair to stay in place, but you don’t want to overload it with so much product that it just looks like a greasy, knotty mess.
So if you’ve got curly hair and you’re looking to give it definition and shine without having to worry about moisture getting the better of it, use Moroccanoil Curl Defining Cream. It’ll help detangle and smooth your hair, while adding just the right amount of volume and control to your curls.
If you’ve spent a long time styling your hair (be it a simple straighten or a more intricate style), try KMS California HAIRSTAY Anti-Humidity Seal to keep your style smooth and frizz-free. The waterproofing spray will help protect your hair from frizz and fly-aways while protecting it from the environment. If you need extra hold, follow with a quick spritz of VO5 Humidity Resistant Firm Hold Hairspray.
