Control Your Frizz
In a perfect
world, all hair types would be created equal, no coif would suffer a kink and
seasonal humidity fluctuations would be no more. But, since we don’t live
in the perfect world of darling ‘dos and moisture-free air, when humidity
is at its worst, it’s hard to look your best. And, while the nature of the
humidity game means some days you might just have to wing it, and accept your
hair as it is, we’ve got some tips and products to reduce the frizz and
beat the humid heat.
preemptive strike is best in the battle to save your hair. Avoid going from perfectly
coifed to unfortunately frizzy by locking in moisture even before you step outside.
Indulge in a deep conditioning treatment, such as the Kérastase Deep Conditioning treatment (available at salons carrying Kérastase products)
to prepare your locks for humid conditions. And if you can’t make it to
the salon, opt for an at-home deep conditioner like the Yes to Carrots C is for Hair Care Hair and Scalp Moisturizing Mud Mask ($13 at Walgreens.com).
Apply this mask, let it sit for 15-20 minutes and rinse with warm water. The natural
ingredients penetrate hair and infuse moisture deep down. Not only will it leave
hair silky and smooth, it’ll reduce frizz and improve the overall texture.
stress that the key to curbing the frizz humidity brings is creating a barrier
between your lovely locks and the not-so-lovely elements all the while being mindful
not to over-do it. A little dab of the Rahua Leave-In Treatment is all your hair will need to protect it from humidity ($125 on shopcocoonhair.com).
This formula, carefully created in the Amazon Rainforest, is derived from rare
Amazonian oil that native women have used for decades to tame their tresses. Apply
a small amount of this precious treatment to your hair, work it in with a comb
and style as usual. Not only will this treatment add moisture, it will strengthen
each strand, preventing damage and breakage, allowing hair to grow long.
deep conditioners and leave-in treatments, an anti-frizz serum can be a girl’s
best friend in the summer. Try the tried and true selections from John
Frieda, such as the Frizz Ease Hair Serum in extra strength ($10
at drugstore.com) if your hair is curly
and unruly. This formula will help ease even the toughest of frizz. For finer
hair that is still plagued by humidity issues we like John Frieda’s Frizz Ease Daily Nourishment Leave-in Fortifying Spray ($6 at drugstore.com).
with these stellar products, kiss frizz goodbye and welcome a carefree day in
the sun and heat. Always bear in mind: the more you fuss, the more you’ll
frizz so work with what you’ve got and try to avoid excess blow drying or
styling to ensure smooth luscious locks.
